BORN A CRIME BY TREVOR NOAH

CLICK ON IMAGE FOR FULL REVIEW







BOOK DESCRIPTION
In this award-winning Audible Studios production, Trevor Noah tells his wild coming-of-age tale during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa. It's a story that begins with his mother throwing him from a moving van to save him from a potentially fatal dispute with gangsters, then follows the budding comedian's path to self-discovery through episodes both poignant and comical. Noah's virtuoso embodiment of all the characters from his childhood, and his ability to perform accents and dialects effortlessly in English, Xhosa, and Zulu, garnered the Audie Award for Best Male Narrator in 2018. Nevertheless, Noah's devoted and uncompromising mother-as voiced by her son-steals the show.

MY REVIEW

I've always enjoyed Trevor Noah as a comedian so wanted to read about his life. Having seen him in a few interviews I had a vague idea of what to expect; his life story and book exceeded my expectations.

I found his journey and that of his family (especially his mother) fascinating. Not only do we get to read his bio, but we also get an insight into what it was like being a child growing up during apartheid in South Africa.

His writing style and his personality reflect how he is on tv, he is intelligent, funny, charming and honest.

Without spoiling anything - be prepared for a roller coaster ride.

Was very disappointed when I got to the end of the book. I may have to read it again!

I thoroughly recommend it.
