* I received a free copy of this audiobook through AudioBookBlast in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
Boko Haram was not a group that was on anyone’s radar until one day in April of 2004, when the group kidnapped 276 girls from a school in Nigeria. It was not a coincidence that most of those kidnapped girls are Christian.
This audiobook explains the deeply religious ideology that Boko Haram espouses. Boko Haram members are Muslim and they believe that Sharia law is the only true law.
The narrator of this audiobook was the perfect choice. Many of the African names and pronunciations are extremely difficult for most people to pronounce but Wanda J. Dixon McKnight was flawless in her performance.
Much of the initial information in this audiobook is quite ‘dry’ but it was necessary to include it in order to really understand the African region and its complicated history.
I found this audiobook very interesting although at times it came across less like a “book” and more like a university lecture.
I rate this book as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
