Kids Book Review Podcast-Radin
Updated: May 10, 2022
What did I think of the book? Overall, I think the book is one of the only books I actually enjoyed reading. Books never really make me want to read more but this was one of them that I liked and wanted to read more. Starting from the beginning, all the chaos Trevor causes is hilarious and made me want to read more and more. My favorite part of the book was definitely when Trevor took a big poop on the ground and his grandmas did a whole ritual to destroy any demons that it contained. I actually laughed out loud at it, and that’s the first time I’ve ever actually laughed out loud at a book. All jokes aside, I think the book is a good explanation for people young and old of what Apartheid was and what it did to people. I think Trevor Noah put what racism really was perfectly and had many life lessons that could apply to people my age as well. To be honest I could even relate to some of Trevor’s situation as in Iran racism is a huge problem and Iran is quite literally ranked one of the most racist countries in the world. This even goes for most of the Middle East. While there weren't many downsides to this book I do wish Trevor elaborate on his journey to becoming a worldwide comedian in the book, I think that would’ve been a good way to finish it off. The ending was honestly the only part in the book I was unsatisfied with. My favourite quote from Trevor was
“Give a man a fish, he’ll have food for a night but teach a man to fish and he’ll always have food. But you also have to give him the fishing rod”-that really stuck with me.
