5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Biograghy
This was an autobiography about an African American growing upduring apartheid South Africa. Who would have thought that we wereforced to read a book and actually enjoyed it? I found this book to be very interesting. Because even though Mark Mathabane was young and remembers his life vividly he does an excellent job describing the hardships that he went through. This...

1.0 von 5 Sternen I found this book very offending
I was rescently assigned this book to read for my Humanities class. When I came upon the part with the young boys being used as sex toys I refused to read anymore. I think that this kind of material is inappropriate for school and should not required to read. I would have given this book no stars but this was not an option.

4.0 von 5 Sternen enjoyable book, 12. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
This book was assigned for my Global Studies II class. This book is a great way to catch a person's attenion on the issues of apartheid in South Africa. It shows how black South AFricans had no freedom and all of the horrers they had been through. Mark Mathabane gave great details. This book has really touched me. When I read what happened, I felt like I was there and a part of them. A lot of people say that it was very distasteful because of the sexual parts. I think that it just showed one of the ways the blacks were treated. I didn't give this book 5 stars because in one part it kind of dragged on. But otherwise it was very interesting and really made me feel and understand what happened in South Africa when apartheid was legal.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good.., 12. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
Mathabane, in his autobiography, lays bare the suffering and apartheid in South Africa. At first glance, people may think it's a very ordinary and typical issue to write a book about racism. I bought this book because it was on my Amazon.com Book Recommendations list and I decided to give it a try hoping it wouldn't be one of those 'whiny' books. The beginning of it worried me a little but then I discovered its uniqueness and have finally come to the conclusion that Mathabane wrote a very good novel. I recommend it to everyone who is interested to learn the life of the black people during the long years of racism.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A remarkable story, 20. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
This book is filled with detailed description of the negative society that South Africans live in. I met Mr. Mathabane and he is the most amazing person I have ever talked to. His humility and courage is beyond what I have seen in any person in my life. The sequal to this book is Kaffir Boy in America. If you enjoy the first one you are certain to find the second read entertaining. The book is pretty graphic and may not be suitable for some young children. Mothers will be emotionally touched by the story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen fascinating autobiography, 28. August 2007
Mark Mathabane's book Kaffir Boy is the "hard to believe or even imagine" story of his childhood during apartheit in South Africa. The book deals with his and his family's struggle to survive, the raids from the police and the hopelessness of being caught up in such a regime. It wonderfully tells about his determination to escape in spite of everything.
The book really is worth reading even if he sometimes goes on a lot about tennis. (You really have to like tennis to endure these pages.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen REQUEST: Kaffir Boy, 22. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
My apologies, as this is not a review. I met a South African in the plane from London to Oslo. He told me about the book. I happen to have read about Mark Matabane in the Mail and Guardian; but never bothered to check his works out, as I promised myself to. After watching a CNN programme on 20000623, I felt that I have done myself a disservice by not following up on the matter. Would you be kind enough to provide me with Mark's website address.
I work for the South African Embassy in Oslo. I have been thinking of hosting a South African Book Fair...maybe I can include Mark, depending on his availablity and logistics. The plans are still at an infancy stage at the moment.
Your assistance will be appreciated. My apologies again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen apartheid from the bottom up, 6. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
An addictive story about surviving hell on earth. Unfortunately, the Nazis didnt have a monopoly on cruelty--the Orwellian arbitrariness of the Apartheid regime sounds exactly like communism under Mao and Stalin, bringing out the worst in humanity.
As an aside, this autobiography shows why there are very very few successful athletes from poor and developing countries.
If you find this inspirational yet humbling book interesting, dont miss Nadine Gordimer's work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome, 3. Februar 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
Kaffir Boy: An Autobiography--The True Story of a Black Youth's Coming of Age in Apartheid South Africa is a remarkable book. About Mark Mathabane. It is an honest and open story of his life in Apartheid South Africa. In this book, the reader is taken into a journey though his life in his recount. The book is very engaging , the story flows and the setting is so real. Though certain aspects of Mark's life are shocking, they only help to give you a better understanding of the environment in which he lived and make Mark Mathabane human.. This deep and moving story is not only easy to read, it is also full of things to learn about.It ranks with Disciples of Fortune, Cry, the Beloved Country, Triple Agent, Double Cross, In the Country of Men, as books on Africa with a depth that I enjoyed and respected.

5.0 von 5 Sternen intense, shocking, heartwarming, inspiring!, 4. September 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
I can only repeat what's already been written about this book on Amazon so I won't. But here's a recommendation: If you're interested in the history of South Africa and black life under apartheid, read Mandela's Long walk to freedom first and continue with this one. It'll give you a detailed picture both generally and individually.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Kaffir Boy: The True Story Of A Black Youths Coming Of Age In Apartheid South Africa (Taschenbuch)
Kaffir Boy was a great book.Mark Mathabane so open and honest and allowed the reader to explore his life from a first hand account. I am a student who had to read this book for class it wasn't an assignment at all. If you have never picked up a book pick this one up. It's engaging and very real. I plan on reading the sequel.
