    Avis de l'équipe

    Editors Select, November 2016 - Just as fans of The Daily Show weren't quite sure what to expect when he was announced as the show's new host, I started Born a Crime not really knowing what I'd find in Noah's book. Comedy? Political and social commentary? Sure, but not in the way I expected. Instead, I was given so much more. Noah's story is intertwined with the final years and aftermath of apartheid-era South Africa. It's a story that begins with Noah's mother throwing him from a moving car to avoid a potentially fatal dispute with gangsters and follows the comedian's path to self-discovery amid episodes both bittersweet and comical. It's eloquent and touching and funny and made all the better with his reading, especially as he recounts anecdotes involving his mother - the true show stealer - and delivers clever turns of phrase as only a top-notch comic and storyteller can. —Doug, Audible Editor

    Description

    Highest-rated new book of 2016 by Audible customers

    Winner: Audible's Best of 2016 - Celebrity Memoirs 

    In this award-winning Audible Studios production, Trevor Noah tells his wild coming-of-age tale during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa. It’s a story that begins with his mother throwing him from a moving van to save him from a potentially fatal dispute with gangsters, then follows the budding comedian’s path to self-discovery through episodes both poignant and comical. Noah’s virtuoso embodiment of all the characters from his childhood, and his ability to perform accents and dialects effortlessly in English, Xhosa, and Zulu, garnered the Audie Award for Best Male Narrator in 2018. Nevertheless, Noah’s devoted and uncompromising mother—as voiced by her son—steals the show.

    Commentaires

    "Comedian Trevor Noah's stories of growing up in South Africa are vivid, sometimes harrowing, and often laugh-out-loud funny. The bonus of audio is that listeners get to HEAR Noah tell these stories in his South African-accented English, as well as hear him speak snippets of various other South African languages. Noah (who succeeded Jon Stewart as the host of 'The Daily Show') is a natural storyteller - skilled, engaging, and relatable.... Noah's narration offers insights and intimacy." (AudioFile)

    "The author’s gift for vocal impersonation elevates the audio version into something even more splendid than an already terrific memoir.” (The Washington Post)

    Histoire super intéressante, super bien lu

    Un des meilleurs livres audio que j'ai pu écouter jusque-là. My, my, c'était tellement bien. C'est un livre qui avait fait le buzz mais ô objectif mérité. J'ai tellement appris de choses sur la vie de cet homme en Afrique du Sud. La personnalité incroyable de sa mère, ses bêtises, l'univers tellement particulier de ce pays pour un petit gars ni blanc ni noir. Ça vaut vraiment le détour. Je recommande à 200%. En plus c'est l'auteur qui lit son livre, il imite certains personnages, lit les parties en langue étrangère, vraiment très vivant.

    Brilliant

    it's one thing to have great elements for a story it's another to be able to tell it in a way that captivates an audience for a duration of eight hours. Trevor Noah really succeeded in doing this. I highly recommend it.

    Exceptional story, exceptional reading!

    Not only the story of the book is highly enjoyable, but also very valuable and provides a lot of insight in the reality of living in the South Africa and in the racist communities in general.
    On top of that the author himself adds a lot by reading the book in very lively and entertaining way and with a lot of distance to himself, past events and political situation. Reading the original quotes in the local languages is unbeatable.

    My only regret is due to the topics mixed chronologically and because of that in some moments it is hard to figure out at first in which period is the current action happening and therefore what was the authors' age/location and the political situation. On the other hand it is not hard to take longer breaks from the book, as its rather a set of smaller stories than a full chain of events with direct consequences.

    A écouter absolument, si vous voulez rire, être surpris, émus, choqué, apprendre mais surtout rire. Le meilleur livre audio que j’ai écouté grâce à l’histoire et la performance de Mr Noah qui est très très talentueux. Il sait imiter tout type de personnages. Il est brillant. J’ai passé un très bon moment. Je le recommande sans aucune hésitation

    Listened to with pleasure

    Trevor Noah is very captivating. I gained a lot of insights, understood his perspective and had several personal mental breakthroughs because of the way he put things. I personally recommend as a semi-lighthearted read ^^
    And Trevor is very entertaining, so you're never bored through his telling of the stories :D

    l'afrique du sud vu par un jeune métis: attachant

    En tant qu'européenne ma vision de l'afrique du sud était limitée à Neslon Mandela. Trevor Naoh est devenu une star mais il nous partage tout son parcours, Il donne une vision attachante étonnante bouleversante et tellement vivante de l'Afrique du Sud.
    je me suis régalée
    je lis en anglais pour l'entrenir et Trevor Noah lit son livre de façon compréhensible.

    Great book and perfect narration

    I don't review a lot of books anymore, but this one got to me. There are lots of books written by people -- including me -- who had a hard time growing up. Abusive parents, poverty, oppression. War. There is a lot of awful stuff children endure.

    Trevor Noah endured all of it. Name something bad that a kid can experience and it probably happened to him. Born under apartheid, his existence was illegal. His birth was, as the title of his book suggests, a crime.

    As the child of a white father and a black mother under South Africa during apartheid, if he had been noticed by the authorities, they would have taken him from his family and put him ... somewhere. So merely surviving until the end of apartheid was no mean feat. Add to that extreme poverty, violence and life under the most oppressive, racist regime you can imagine. Actually, you may not be able to imagine it. I knew it was bad, but South Africa refined oppression into an art form.

    One of the other noteworthy things about this book was that I learned great deal about things I thought I already knew. I don't know if Noah intended it as a cautionary tale, but it is. Chilling.

    I didn't read the book. I listened to the audiobook because Noah reads it himself. He has a beautiful, melodic voice and a lovely cadence. It was a treat for my ears and my brain.

    You might think with all of this terrible stuff -- and some of it is really horrific -- that this would be an angry, possibly embittered man. But he isn't.

    He's funny when humor is possible. Even when he's serious, there is grace and wit -- plus a sweetness and generosity of spirit that's rather uplifting. I don't think I've ever said that about a book. It's not a word I use lightly. Trevor Noah is a rare person, able to appreciate the good stuff in his life and not obsess over the considerable amount of injustice he has experienced.

    I'm not usually a big fan of celebrity memoirs or autobiographies, but this is exceptional. If you have the patience, listen to it as an audiobook. Otherwise, consider reading it. He's a smart guy, a good writer, and an astute observer of humanity, government, politics, and relationships. Insightful, witty, and entertaining, I highly recommend it.

    Wow

    The narration is exemplary. He is a chameleon and his command of language gives the narrative so much texture.

    The breadth and variety of sound is staggering. The are so many characters each with there own voice and language. It is a tour de force of story telling.

    The story, in and of itself, is history, humor, and horror and at the end you will be uplifted.

    Wow. Just Wow.

    Reviews were a bit misleading

    Based on the reviews I read, I expected more. It wasn't a tragic life story, or super funny story.
    It's an ok story.
    Guess the hype, from the reviews, led me to hope for something more.

    And now I wait...

    Wonderful and engaging story, an eloquent and fluent reading by the author (I've loved hearing Trevor Noah speak since the first time I saw him on television), and very educational at the same time. However, I really want to know the story of how he ended up in America as the host of The Daily Show. He touches on the beginnings of his entertainment career in this book, but the main story is, as the title suggests, focused in his early life - from birth until early adulthood.... so I'm waiting Mr. Noah!!! I'm waiting for more of your seamlessly enchanting story telling!!! 😬

    Best book this year

    Yes, I said it. The best book this year. Funny, poignant, historical, happy, and perfect. Yes, it is the story of Trevor, but it is so much more. It is the story of a place and a time that while I thought I understood, I didn't. It's just amazing that this is the story of a YOUNG man. How can this all have happened such a short time ago? Told with such wit and interest this is really the story of a woman who made her own way and taught her child to do the same. So enjoyable. The perfect book.

    An interesting take on life yet a bit disturbing

    As someone who is blind, I love audible because the books are narrated to me. I made this selection because I enjoy listening to the rider on his comedy show. He is very entertaining and can tell a good story. For the most part, I find his commentary is generally on point. This book gives you a glimpse into his mind and gives you a little background about the life that he has had while growing up in South Africa. I found the issues regarding domestic violence and his family situation to be quite disturbing, but I understand where his viewpoint is coming from because it was a very terrible situation. There were many things in the book that were quite funny and I enjoyed much of his narrative. I had a little bit of a problem with the story regarding the time where he was a DJ and had a lead dancer Who was given the name of Hitler. His explanation of the situation and the reason why this person was named after one of the most notorious people in history is uncomfortable. Other than these two things, I would recommend this book to others with the caveat that it might be a little much for some.

    a story of true empowerment.

    Auf welchen Platz würden Sie Born a Crime auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

    1.
    Spannung, Spaß - und das autobiographisch. Was will man mehr?

    Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

    Sie zeigt, dass Empowerment in Südafrika möglich ist und dass Kinder aus armen Verhältnissen es schaffen können, den Armutsteufelskreislauf zu durchbrechen. Ein Hoffnungsschimmer für die Regenbogennation, in der die Zukunft schwarzer Kinder oftmals nicht so rosig aussieht.

    Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

    Als Trevor sich im Gefängnis mit dem Hulk-look-a-like anfreundet und so die Situation gut übersteht. Die Szene spiegelt die Macht der Sprache und die weiteren Auswirkungen wunderschön wenn auch bittersüß wieder.

    Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

    Ja.
    Trevor Noah erzählt seine Kindheitsgeschichte anschaulich und sehr nachvollziehbar. Da sein Leben geprägt von vielen Höhen und Tiefen war, entstanden aus dem extremen Rahmenbedingungen der Apartheid, kommen Emotionen definitiv nicht zu kurz. Außerdem ist er Comedian trough and trough. Das merkt man auch in seinem Roman.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Die Komplexität von Südafrika's Geschichte wird erklärt. Also auch dahingehend interessant. Wie schwierig es für Kinder ist, eine solche absurde politische Situation, wie Apartheid, zu verstehen und damit um zu gehen - damit zu leben als 'crime' geboren zu sein. Seine emotionale Reife und Güte ist beeindruckend.

    A different world explained with reflexion & humor

    I love Trevor Noah as a comedian and daily show host. Listening to his personal story and getting to learn about the life in South Africa and under Apartheid is truly enlightening.
    There are funny stories amd then there are stories that punched respect into my European life.
