THERE WAS A COUNTRY A Personal History of Biafra

by | Read by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Biography & Memoir • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

In a work that is part memoir and part history, Chinua Achebe tells not only his own story but also the story of his country, Nigeria. Listening to Akinnuoye-Agbaje's fully credible African accent, one can hardly believe he was born and raised in London. His deep Nigerian tone transports the listener. He delivers African names with a natural ease. And his slow pacing and perfect diction allow the listener to easily follow the harrowing story of the Nigerian civil war, a conflict in which more than one million died. Author and narrator are perfectly paired in a moving production that will stay with the listener long after the final word is spoken.
