This isn’t my normal genre, and I’m not really a Trevor Noah fan but neither is required for this to be a really enjoyable book. It was funny, touching, and educational all rolled into one.
By “not a Trevor Noah fan”, I don’t mean that I dislike him, more that I have very limited knowledge of him. I’ve seen parts of his show, but never a whole episode.
I listened to Born a Crime on Audible and believe that added to the enjoyment, because listening to Trevor Noah narrate his own life was a treat. The voices were phenomenal and he really has a talent with storytelling. I’m ashamed to admit that I had very little knowledge of apartheid prior to reading this. I learned so much and enjoyed myself while doing it.
