    This is a book rooted in the truth of what was and a candid narration of what is. This book has given me back a lost period of my youth. May your soul rest in peace Mr. Achebe and thank you. I highly recommend this book of great importance to all!

    When I was a child, things happened. Nobody explained these important landmarks of that time as current events and now no-one has taken time to write a historical sequences of events as detailed and chronicled in Chinua Achebe's "THERE WAS A COUNTRY". I invite every Nigerian, born, adopted and befriended to READ THIS BOOK AND LEARN. Excellent must read book for this summer.

    A must read for all esp Nigerians

    The book arrived on time. I wasn't disappointed. Thanks Barnes&Noble :) This is a controversial book that gives an insight on the civil war that broke out in Nigeria. A tell-it-all from the author's perspective.
