My Reviews

 
Interesting, Informative, Insightful

Trevor Noah’s Book Born a Crime isn’t just an autobiography of his earlier years but small stories that provide a peak into the life of a young boy who endured so much in the first 18 years of his life. Balanced against the lessons of his childhood are some of the harsh realities of apartheid. The book also centers around his mother and the strength she exhibited throughout the early years of his life as well as how her strength passed on to him. I wrote down so many quotes from this book and identified with various experiences throughout this book. I highly recommend this book.

The book was interesting. I didn’t like the use of patois throughout the novel. Additionally I felt like the characters lacked depth.

The Yellow House: A Memoir by Sarah M. Broom
 
Informative, Interesting, Insightful

This was a great read however I didn’t need as much as the background that was given by the author. Her story was timeless and many facets of it covered a typical African American families in the south.

What We Lose: A Novel by Clemmons Zinzi
 
Insightful, Interesting, Informative

This book was well written. Instead of chapters... the book was written in phases and explores different aspects of the authors life. Her navigation of her mother dying , child birth and relationships while flashing back to childhood memories was creative. I loved the quotes throughout the book and how she highlighted some cultural differences between her life near South Africa and America.
