Book Review 2.1

What I read: This term I have decided to read It’s Trevor Noah:Born a Crime By Trevor Noah. It’s a Biography with 294 pages. I give this book 4 stars.

How It Starts: It starts by talking about Trevor Noah as a young kid and what his status was. Trevor just wants a nice life growing up in South Africa during a super difficult time. Or just… Money. Yeah, probably money.

How it gets Complicated: Trevor was born during Apartheid which was a bunch of super strict laws about segregation in South through West Africa. Which means a Black could not court a White. Trevor had a White dad and a Black mom making him mixed. This was a problem because Trevor’s dad could not see Trevor a lot because of these laws. They split due to the pressure these laws put on their relationship. These laws were so bad that Trevor’s dad could not see him when he was born in the hospital.

What I liked: I liked how he talks a lot about his childhood. He talks about his Mom’s boyfriends and living with them. He talks so much about his childhood that you question if there even is a story. If there even is interesting parts.


What I disliked: I disliked how much off topic topics there are. It takes up so many pages.

Recommendation: If you watch the show Trevor Noah hosts, I think you’d like it.
