I read this in two days. I don’t watch Trevor Noah’s show, but I really enjoyed this. He threaded the needle between moving and funny really well.

I was recommended this book and I don’t really know who Trevor Noah was... however this book really opened up with how life was not only living in an oppressed society but also living as if a crime. This book was not only engaging to read (im not really a big fan of biographies) but it was fun and funny to read. I appreciate this book for giving me a perspective of a different lifestyle and the privilege that I have. Overall, this is an amazing book and I 100% recommend even if you’re not a big book fan. You will have a laugh!

Even if you don’t know Trevor Noah from The Daily Show, you should read these memoirs. You’ll learn a lot about apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa through his stories of his childhood and early adulthood there, but it’s also just a beautiful story about his relationship with his mother. 10/10.

This book was hilarious. He shares the most heartwarming, funny, intelligent stories. It was a quick read and i would definitely read it again. It gives so much insight into what Trevor's upbringing was like during apartheid and how he overcame his struggles.

I read this for a class in university. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it! There are some pretty daunting topics in the book, but the author is very funny. I never knew who Trevor Noah was before this book. I'm glad I read it. #book #bookworm #cozycup #zenden #backtoschool
