Just get the real book

I didn't realize this wasn't actually the book written or read by Trevor Noah. It's a cliffs notes sort of thing.

Not what I expected, retold overview

The overview is not as entertaining as the stories told by Trevor himself in his comedy routines. Not worth listening to because the stories are so much better in the original.

FIVE STARS!!!

A MUST listen—or better yet listen to Trevor Noah read the story of his childhood in South Africa. He was an crime. His mother was black, his father was white and that was illegal. Bill Gates is right. This is one of the best books to read this summer.

basically a good summary

the writer completely missed what had happened at the event with the dancer named Hitler and the reason why their show was stopped. I found it very interesting in the book how Trevor explained how everyone had an English name. Also, I found it important that he described I'm about learning history in school.

Excellent. Inspiring, funny. Incredible story told by excellent writer, intertwining history through a personal account of life. Well done, and looking forward to Trevor’s next book.

Really enjoyed his style of writing which was witty and full of humor even when discussing difficult topics. I learned so much about South Africa and apartheid by listening this book. Highly recommended to everyone

Surprisingly moving as well as funny

A light path to growing up poor and biracial and a large complex society. It could've been a really dark story and absolutely had wicked times. The experience sees life as a background while feeling it is definitely comedic view His Mother is a striking woman. The connection between them is lovely. She is a flawed hero and an amazing partner.

Do not need the American accent. Very disappointing. How about a review by someone who was there?

Do not need the American accent. Would have credibility if reviewed by someone who was in SA at the time.
