Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> Official tie-in to the Netflix Original Film featuring Idris Elba ( Thor , Prometheus and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom ) and directed by Cary Fukunaga ( Jane Eyre ). </p> <p>Agu is just a boy when war arrives at his village. His mother and sister are rescued by the UN, while he and his father remain to fight the rebels. 'Run!' shouts his father when the rebels arrive. And Agu does run. Straight into the rebels' path. In a vivid, sparkling voice, Agu tells the story of what happens to him next; his life as a child-soldier. His story is shocking and painful, and completely unforgettable.</p> <p> Beasts of No Nation gives us an extraordinary portrait of the chaos and violence of war.</p> <p>For a sneak peak of the Netflix Original Film of Beasts of No Nation , have a look at the trailer:<br>'v=oRsaclO0VbU </p>

Library Journal Review

Educated at Harvard, where his writing won a number of prizes, the Nigerian-born Iweala breaks our hearts with the story (all too realistic) of a child soldier in Africa. One of HarperCollins's top picks for the fall. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
