"In the blood and vomit and angry voices captured in Beasts of No Nation, a
reader sees human nature reforged, manacled to evil, tragically perverted."
-Los Angeles Times
"A novel so scorched by loss and anger that it's hard to hold, and so gripping
in its sheer hopeless lifeforce that it's hard to put down." -Guardian (UK)
"In this staggering debut [...], a 23-year-old Harvard graduate has written a
novel about the perversity of war, and the fragility of humanity." -Boston
