    The defining experience of Chinua Achebe's life was the Nigerian civil war, also known as the Biafran War, of 1967-1970. The conflict was infamous for its savage impact on the Biafran people, Chinua Achebe's people, many of whom were starved to death after the Nigerian government blockaded their borders. Immediately after, Achebe took refuge in an academic post in the United States, and for more than 40 years he has maintained a considered silence on the events of those terrible years. Now, decades in the making, comes a towering reckoning with one of modern Africa's most fateful events.

    Would you consider the audio edition of There Was a Country to be better than the print version?

    As a young Nigerian with a lot of questions why the country had depleted culturally and economically to the level which we find ourselves today, this book exposes some very important facts in history that helps one comprehend where things went southward, it would also probably help we the future/ unborn generations identify this thorns and avert it repeating itself in future.

    Geat Book!!!!
