Couldn’t agree more. . . Trevor Noah’s Born A Crime is another example where the author narrating his own work was absolutely perfect. Noah speaks so many languages that his ability to narrate in the appropriate accent is not only totally entertaining but it helps him make one of his most interesting points: how someone sounds is far more likely than skin color or clothes or almost anything else to establish one as either friend or foe. In more than one instance in his life, Noah has (literally) saved himself from various forms of verbal and physical aggression with his ability to respond in kind to those who would bully or harm him. It was an absolutely convincing argument, as you listen to him switch from one “language” (accented English in the English version of the book) to another, with breathtaking facility throughout the book.
