    I'm not super interested in politics so I was pleased to find that Michelle Obama doesn't really like politics either. Her memoir is more about how she created her life, once she discovered she had followed other people's expectations instead of figuring out what she wanted. She is hon...

    If you like Michelle Obama, you are going to like this book. Her delightful personality shines through. It's thoughtful, well-written, and willing to go everywhere without betraying her signature line: "When they go low, we go high." This isn't a book full of gossip or meant to tear he...

    I absolutely loved listening to Michelle Obama read her memoir, Becoming. Michelle is frank in telling her life story, especially in the challenges she has faced and the ways she has tried to overcome those difficulties. The book follows a basic chronological order, starting with h...

    Audiobook read by Michelle Obama For the past three days - all I wanted to do was listen to Michelle Obama..... I cried - or was teary-eyed so many times - I lost count. THIS BOOK must be ?especially? special to her immediate family and closest friends ....but it?s also a gr...

    The audiobook is wonderful. Hearing Michelle tell her own story is better than reading her words in a book. She speaks clearly, with emotional feeling and at a perfect speed. I have given the narration performance five stars. The writing is heartfelt, clear and well formulated. ...

    The job of First Lady - which is essentially to dress well, attend public functions, support your husband, and perhaps take up a worthy cause or two - would be confining for anyone, much less a woman of Michelle Obama's abilities, drive, and accomplishments. Michelle had to give up a...

    Becoming by Michelle Obama is a captivating and compelling read, narrated by Michelle Obama herself makes this a moving, deeply personal and intimate story which is inspirational and insightful. Michelle Obama comes across as a very intelligent and grounded lady who knows what she want...

    I found this fast-paced, interesting, and touching. Also, heartbreaking to be painfully reminded of having once had a thoughtful, ethical president and first lady, and the vindictive, misogynist, racist disaster who doesn?t read that we have now. Michelle wrote about how guilty s...

    5 Extremely Poignant Stars for ?Becoming? When I think of Michelle Obama, the words that come to mind are: Grace Personified. She exemplifies all of the qualities I admire most: beauty, elegance, honor, kindness, intelligence and dignity. To say that I miss the Obamas is an ...

    I?d been lucky to have parents, teachers, and mentors who?d fed me with a consistent, simple message: You matter. As an adult, I wanted to pass those words to a new generation. Look, I'm not a happy crier. I might cry at songs about leaving and missing someone; I might cry at ...

    I didn?t think I could admire and respect former First Lady Michelle Obama any more than I already did. For eight years she graced our country with her presence, her intellect, her caring. We never had to ask because it is obvious in everything she says and does that she does care. W...

    This book is poorly written. Only fans of M.O. could possibly like this book as it doesn't stick to facts. They are the only ones allowed to give reviews of it. I wonder what is being said about Trump books? My review has been deleted twice. Hopefully I am allowed to say this little b...

    "I was humbled and excited to be First Lady, but not for one second did I think I'd be sliding into some glamorous, easy role. Nobody who has the words 'first' and 'black' attached to them ever would. I stood at the foot of the mountain, knowing I'd need to climb my way into favor." ...

    MIND BLOWN!! While I admit to being a reading fiend when it comes to politics, as some will no doubt have realised, I also find much pleasure in learning about people through biographies and memoirs. Knowing full well that I would be swept up in the wave that surrounded the recent r...

    I wanted to start off my 2019 reading with a book that would be uplifting and hopeful for a better new year, so I of course picked Michelle "when they go low, we go high" Obama's book. I'm totally giving this 5, absolutely biased, stars. #sorrynotsorry What is there to say about a w...

    4.5 stars!! I?ve had Becoming pre-ordered since I saw it was coming out. I was so excited to read it. Per my Amazon account, I purchased The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama in early 2007. When I read this book, I was moved and hoped this man would be president one day. When I was...

    I have loved Barack Obama since I watched his speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004.... but, I never really knew much about Michelle. Michelle came from humble beginnings, surrounded by loving parents, brother and extended family on the South Side of Chicago. She always strived ...

    This was my first read of 2019, and what a beautiful start to my reading year! ?Becoming? by Michelle Obama is one of the better, well-written autobiographies I?ve ever read, which surprises me since I didn?t realize Michelle Obama was that good of a writer. That being said, ...

    Like many people, I eagerly read Michelle Obama?s memoir ?Becoming? as soon as it was published this week. It?s important that this book has come out now and there?s many reasons to be excited about it. I?m not only excited about it because she?s a former first lady as we...

    Becoming like Michelle Obama herself, is both eloquent and relatable. She talks about becoming her, becoming us, and finally, becoming more. As most of us know by now, Michelle is from Chicago, grew up with loving and supportive parents, attended Princeton followed by Harvard for l...

    I just finished this PHENOMENAL book?seriously, probably THE best autobiography I?ve ever laid my hands on! It?s now in vogue?the coolest new trend?for people to write a book about their lives, and I respect that trend for allowing us to read more TRUE, REAL stories about REA...

    You bet your ass I just preordered this. As a female minority, Queen First Lady Michelle Obama has become one of my most go-to role models, and I already know I'm going to be in tears while reading this. ...

    *Dreaming of a world where Trump doesn?t exist and Michelle Obama is President... This was such a great read. Engrossing from the beginning, it was so interesting to hear her life story; from her childhood and the life she had before she met Barack, to the person she became wi...

    I understand the hype! I didn't know much about Michelle Obama nor her husband. This book absolutely humanized them and show me how much they care about others. The contrast with the actual political situation is blatant. Recommend! ...
