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. M.D. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2012]
