批評家のレビュー

"A polished pearl of a memoir." (New York Times)

"A rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall Obama's a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life...it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction." (i)

"I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter...this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more." (Independent)

あらすじ・解説

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Becoming by Michelle Obama.

Winner of the Grammy's Best Spoken Word Album 2020.

Winner of the 2020 Audie Award for Autobiography/Memoir.

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States.

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the United States and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. 

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.

語り口からにじみ出る、手本とすべき人柄。

元ファーストレディーとはいえ、よほどナレーションの特訓をしたに違いない。 波乱万丈の努力に接ぐ努力の半生を、暖かい声で穏やかに時に快活に語る姿勢は、幸福感と謙虚さと自己肯定の賜物。 お手本にしたいと願う人多いのも理解できる。

Honest and moving

Being a Japanese single mom, I felt I had very little in common with the former First Lady of the United States. I lived in New Jersey from 1973 through 1979, in a very white neighborhood. I was the first ever Asian student at our elementary school. But I encountered mostly kindness and acceptance. Yet, today, I find myself feeling weary about Americans as a group and a people that create a nation. I am quick to tell people that the US is very low on the list of places I would encourage my kids to go if they want to study abroad in the future. My Eurasian twins face discrimination regularly. I know Japan is not perfect. But with maybe two gun deaths a year and hardly any obese kids in our school, I prefer it here. Michelle’s story partly explained the pressure and challenges the Obamas faced because of their skin color and because they dared to be different. I respect Michelle for her intelligence and big heart and feel her daughters are very lucky to have such a mom. After listening to her book, I feel I underestimated and do not quite yet grasp the challenges of being a person of color in the United States. There were episodes that moved me to tears though I am anti-military and wish that the US and other nations would just withdraw troops altogether. It was good that the Audible book was narrated by Michelle herself. She sounded earnest and sincere. I don’t think I will purchase more books by her in the near future but I am very glad I listened to this one and recommend it to anyone who wishes to get a spousal glimpse into the former President as well as to get to know the former First Lady a little bit.

positively surprised

I was expecting some corny, cheesy feel good and self love promoting gush but was in fact very pleased. Michelle does an excellent job tying together all the different roles and expectations that come with being a daughter, husband, mother and spouse of a politician. It was thoughtful, well balanced and deep without letting you get lost in the heaviness. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent!!!

I really liked Michelle Obama before I read her book “Becoming”. But, after I finished it, I just love her so much!!! I totally recommend this audible book read aloud by Michelle Obama. I had been feeling that she was actually right next to me and telling about her story. 😊

Loved the power of authenticity

I am recommending this book to my friends, family and young women in my life. As a Black, female South African who grew up working class, there were so many things I could relate to in Michelle’s story. This helped me process my own thoughts and feelings about my personal journey. Thank you Michelle for your authenticity and openness.

I loved this autobiography! Michelle Obama is so honest and candid in her description of life as a First Lady and the journey supporting her husband to get into office. It’s at times laugh out loud funny and at others brought me to tears but throughout this book is inspiring and hopeful! Great read!

The woman that is Michelle Obama

What is so inspiring about her story is that it starts of so similar almost like we were living the same life as children. Her journey was unique but still so are all our journeys, we just need to be reminded to always be authentic. The Obama’s grace and struggles it have paved the way for many others. This book give a good insight of the profess and emotions that went on during that journey to and and while in the White House This book has also thought me about what kind of parent I would like to be for my children. An insight of great parenting not just by the Obamas but also by the Robinsons. Read this book.

Very Disappointed

I was really looking forward to this book, as I didn't know much about the Obama story before they entered The White House and I always enjoy a book more when the narrator is telling their own story. However, this audio book did not even come close to my expectations, it was extremely boring and the narration was very slow and monotonous....zzzzzz I have been listening to this book now for over a week and I only have one hour left, but I just cannot bring myself to listen to it a minute longer. I kept thinking the next chapter would get interesting - nope, it just droned on and on and on! I normally listen to books whilst driving to pass the time, this is the first book that made my journeys feel longer! I have listened to 18 hours of Michelle Obama talking and most of it was just drivel - I would not recommend this book, unless you have insomnia then it could be a great sleep aid.

Michelle takes us on a walk through her intimate moments of her life. I especially loved the openness with which she talks of her connection with her African roots. An honest and open story that I feel so accurately reflects the warm, human, beautiful couple we saw on our screens.

Heartfelt and engaging

I was thoroughly impressed with this heartfelt and moving biography. The book is divided into three sections: ‘Becoming Me’ describes growing up in a tight-knit working class family on Chicago’s Southside; ‘Becoming Us’ looks at her relationship with Barak Obama, from their meeting as young lawyers, their marriage and family and takes us through his political career up to the point he was elected president in 2008; ‘Becoming More’ then describes her experiences at the White House during his two terms in office. I thought that the construction of the book was brilliant! Yes she is the wife of a former president, however this is HER book, HER story and she gives equal weight to each part, subtly showing that without the foundation her parents gave her she might not have met her husband or been the woman who would choose to marry him, and without that decision she wouldn’t have lived in the White House. Her point is made overtly and covertly, she could have been any one of a number of girls growing up in America and they could have been her. She freely admits she doesn’t really care for politics, though she grew up in a Democrat household, so she tells events without the political colour that can easily weigh down biographies like these. Instead she often colours her descriptions of events with the little details that resonate more with the average person. Her affection for those she loves, particularly her husband and family resonates throughout the book. She is unflinching in giving her opinion on Barak Obama’s weaknesses (timekeeping) but is a fierce proponent of what she views as his strengths. She is equally unflinching with her assessment of many others particularly Donald Trump and the Republican Party, though she is also critical of Hillary Clinton in the 2008 campaign. She speaks affectionately of George W. and Laura Bush (and notably says nothing about Meliana Trump) and humanises many individuals who seem more history than human (Queen Elizabeth II and Nelson Mandela). One of the most powerful things that she does it to put her life and the events in it into a wider context. She is the great-granddaughter of a slave, she grew up during the decline of the Southside of Chicago and the so-called ‘white flight’ and was deeply aware of the affect it had on the community. And she reminds readers of the country and economy that her husband inherited and the very different one that he left. All in all I thought this was a wonderfully warm and often witty book and possibly the best post-administration promotion of Barak Obama’s legacy. I’m delighted that I bought the audiobook as Michelle Obama’s narration was brilliant. She tells her story in her own words and her own voice and adds nuance that I thing would have been missing if I’d only read the written book (though I might buy that for the pictures!)

Fantastic, even if you're not an American

Couldn't stop listening. I was worried I wouldn't like it as I am not American and not all that interested in the nuances of US politics. But I loved it! So much more than just a political disquisition.

Audio better than print

Unusually, I’m certain that the audiobook is better than the hard copy would be. Maybe this is because Michelle Obama read her own life story. She writes with the same honesty and grace she demonstrated as FLOTUS. Inspiring a plethora of emotions, her story allows us to understand the source of her drive and achievements. One thing surprised me: her recurring question of “Am I good enough?” The answer is evident: she most definitely is! A must listen autobiography.

Being from the UK I didn’t know a lot about the obamas but what I know now is that they are just like you and me. I loved hearing about Michelle’s upbringing, her successes before and during her life as First Lady and the snippets of interesting facts about life in the Whitehouse.

Fascinating and compelling

An open and, I truly believe, honest account of Michelle‘s journey from her first day at school to her departure from the White House and everything in between. Her message is clear and transparent and she holds nothing back as she shares her most private thoughts, beliefs and real life experiences. Through her book, Michelle demonstrates her humanity, her normalcy and her love for people, young and old and of every race, colour and creed. Especially powerful is hearing her passion and emotions first hand as she personally narrates the text. She made me laugh and cry in equal measure and after feeling I really know so much about her now, she is officially my hero! I highly recommend this book!!!!

Epitome of grace, humility, courage, honesty and hope

This was a beautifully written / read book. I waited with anticipation when I preordered the audio was not disappointed. This was truly inspiring. As I listened, I experienced a tsunami of varying emotions...joy, laughter, pride, annoyance, hurt, I even cried at times but overall hope, love and appreciation. I was left motivated to keep going and helping others to grow too. I re played certain parts to internalise a message or ponder upon it. In some aspect, surprisingly I felt scales falling off my eyes. I am moved to not only continue to build on my own confidence, vision of my future and helping others, but also to re-examine my past...my history of MY forefathers. I am left recapping my own herstory and the reality of my path today. I felt re-energised. I have bought the hard copy book too. I have recommended this book to all my friends and especially my daughter, sister, nieces and daughters of my friends. I would recommend the audiobook as Mrs Obama draws you in and captures you with her voice and intonations and takes you on a journey, some of which resembled my own journey and thought processes. I truly felt like I was there living each experience. It was wonderfully presented and I do not believe anyone else could have presented this book other than her. Thank you, for allowing me into a snippet, yet important, personal and brutally honest journey of your life and your family. I continue to admire your family and having nothing but the utmost respect, love and prayers for you all. God bless, guide and protect you all always. Your namesake, Michelle

Just brilliant

As a middle aged white guy growing up in wonderful circumstances (not in the US), Michelle Obama’s story is incredibly inspiring. I think girls, Americans, people from minorities might find it even more so. I loved her voice and am grateful she took the time to do the audiobook herself. Everyone should listen.

As you’d expect

It’s beautifully written and read. There’s nothing startlingly new in the revelations but it’s her story and told in a cohesive way. It’s graceful and honorable. It’s as dignified as the author. I’m pleased I bought this book especially as a non-American white woman as the author’s words and message are unifying. I’d particularly recommend this book for women, and for young teenage women.

A book of the heart, for the mind and the soul

This is a book for 2020. I listened to it during the Covid19 pandemic and finished it during the time of the George F protests...D. Trump's most unbecoming hours. I came to better know and desire to emulate the Obamas in my 8-kid family. Michelle is a born storyteller. Her voice as she reads calming, truth telling. I don't read political or autobiographical texts but Michelle shows you around the political context, she connects her story with your family, with kids, with my own sense of growth, discovery and inner struggle. I am in awe. So pleased I decided to read it. I couldn't put it down. The issues covered are all the key ones for a woman, any child of mine, for those of us coming from a history of struggle and painful social minority, traumatic experiences. Thank you Michelle for the passion, the hard work and inspiration, the powerful message to keep striving

Thank you Michelle for sharing your incredible story.

Wonderful book! Michelle tells her story in a raw and real way. Enjoyed it thoroughly and had to rewind some parts so I could write down quotes of her wisdom! Her journey hasn’t been easy but she reflects in such a wonderfully detailed and measured way on all the ups, downs or challenges. One of my favourite quotes... “Becoming requires equal parts of patience and rigour. Becoming is never giving up on the idea that there’s more growing to be done.” Highly recommend!
