James Earl Jones's voice was made for story telling. Beautiful story about cause and affect. Even the background sounds, drums, etc. added to the storie's aura.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

Trevor Noah's life story could not have been narrated by anyone else. Because it was his upbringing and culture he was able to explain and detail his South African childhood like no one else would be able to. Bravo Trevor Noah!
