Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood Reviews

  • Nat
    Before I start my review, I want to take a minute to praise Trevor Noah's stand up shows because they're one of the few that don't rely on being ignorant. His shows are one of the enlighten ones focusing on race, white-privilege, police brutality, hate speech, prejudice, and so much more.I’d hi...

I inherently knew that they wouldn't pick someone with a sense of humor and style identical to Stewart's, but I felt that Noah was so different that his selection meant the show wou...

    The author is very charismatic and if you're going to read this book, I would recommend the audiobook since he narrates it!...

    4.5/5Trevor Noah was a great narrator and had the ability to turn the grimmest of experiences into smart, exciting stories. If this book interests you, I urge you to listen to the audiobook!It was fascinating learning about his life growing up as a mixed race child in pre- and post-Apartheid South A...
