"[Beasts of No Nation is] about the life of a child soldier, Agu, in an unnamed war-torn African country—now a critically-acclaimed Netflix original film directed by Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) and starring Idris Elba (Mandela, The Wire)...In a powerful, strikingly original voice, Uzodinma Iweala leads the reader through the random travels, betrayals, and violence that mark Agu’s new community."

What parallels can we draw to the conflict(s) in Nigeria today? And more importantly, which is better - the book or the movie? Let's discuss at our last review of the year!
