Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah - Book Summary - Abbey Beathan
(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.)
A bold mixture of humour and crude anecdotes, Born a Crime is a biography like nothing you have heard before.
Believe me when I say this, Trevor Noah is not a boring storyteller. He doesn't follow a traditional way of telling stories of his life like other biographers might. His comedian side burst out of his soul and lands in his writing, delivering a unique touch between crude and funny. Finding even in the most traumatic stories of his childhood, a sense of humor.

"We tell people to follow their dreams, but you can only dream of what you can imagine, and, depending on where you come from, your imagination can be quite limited." - Trevor Noah
A book highly recommended to be enjoyed in audio due to Trevor's chameleon-like ability to imitate dialects and accents to perfection where he fluently shifts from language to language showing his proficiency but also entertaining us while he tells us a story. Born a Crime is a really personal book where it will be as if you're having a conversation with Trevor Noah and he's pouring his heart out about his troubling childhood. Definitely a book that will leave you content.
In Born a Crime you'll feel Trevor Noah's comedian side but you'll also see him as a human being.
