  1. I didn t look at the reviews until after I bought Born a Crime and read it for myself While reading the 1 star reviews, out of curiosity, I was shocked at some of the negative reviews Life in third world countries is different than what you would experience in America or other developed countries Culturally they have beliefs, behaviors, and or customs that may be considered weird or ugly to those who are not familiar In my opinion, I believe Trevor Noah wrote wonderfully He was completely transp [...]


  2. I don t review a lot of books any, but this one got to me There are lots of books written by people including me who had a hard time growing up Abusive parents, poverty, oppression War There is a lot of awful stuff children endure.Trevor Noah endured all of it Name something bad that a kid can experience and it probably happened to him Born under apartheid, his existence was illegal His birth was, as the title of his book suggests, a crime.As the child of a white father and a black mother under [...]

  5. Trevor Noah has always been unapologetically open and honest about the world It s what makes him such a great host of The Daily Show He gets the right balance of humour to go with his casual storytelling style.Reading Born A Crime was such an eye opening insight into what was actually going on during and after Apartheid Firstly, Noah is only 33 Apartheid ended in living memory It s a terrifying thought, how recent that is Which leads onto my next point we weren t taught about this nearly enough.

  6. Unbelievably moving Will have you laughing and then tearing up a few sentences later.This excerpt literally, mind blown Yes, it was horrific But I often wonder, with African atrocities like in the Congo, how horrific were they The thing Africans don t have that Jewish people do have is documentation The Nazis kept meticulous records, took pictures, made films And that s really what it comes down to Holocaust victims count because Hitler counted them Six million people killed We can all look at t [...]
