Comedian Trevor Noah provides insight into his life at the end of apartheid in South Africa. Born to a native Xhosa woman and a white man, his very existence proves their interracial crime. His stories provide humorous insight into his journey to adulthood while poignantly exposing the socioeconomic issues facing many South Africans.

A nice read and glimpse into a personal perspective of someone who lived in South Africa during apartheid. It's worth a read if only for that perspective. If you don't like it, it's only ~250 pages so no big deal. I give it 5 CD burners out of 5 CD burners - hopefully they are faster than 1x :) ( )

Everyone should read this book. I laughed, I cried. I recommend the audiobook - Trevor Noah is a great writer and a great narrator. ( )

Born a Crime is the memoir of South African comedian Trevor Noah who grew up during Apartheid and its turbulent aftermath. The title refers to his birth as a mixed race child, a union between people of different races being illegal at the time. Trevor’s mother was a courageous Xhosa woman whose daily life defied the system that tried to suppress her. His father was a Swiss man. Trevor and his mother spent years hidden away in the city in a white area that was illegal for them to live in.

Trevor’s story takes us through his experiences living in a white area where he was considered too black, in a township in Soweto where he was considered too white and in a coloured area where he looked similar but was culturally too black to fit in.

I enjoyed the portrayal of his mother, the hardships of her life, her obvious strength and resilience, and the deep respect he clearly has for her. I found some of the sections about how gangster he was less engaging. It also felt like it was very clearly written for an American audience and I wondered how South African readers would perceive this story. I certainly can’t imagine any South African ever referring to their mother as Mom! 3.5 stars for me. ( )

I’ve always liked Trevor Noah. I find him hilarious and extremely intelligent. This book made me love him even more. Filled with stories that will make you laugh and stories that will make you cry, his memoir is definitely a story of hope and faith. ( )

Growing up the way I did, I learned how easy it is for white people to get comfortable with a system that awards them all the perks.
That, and so many other smaller incidents in my life, made me realize that language, even more than color, defines who you are to people.
The doctors took her up to the delivery room, cut open her belly, and reached in and pulled out a half-white, half-black child who violated any number of laws, statutes, and regulations—I was born a crime.
Sometimes we’d pull over and go up to the wall, and she’d put me on her shoulders like I was a little periscope.
I was just high-energy and knew what I wanted to do.
