あらすじ・解説

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.

Didn't know what I was getting into

I highly recommend the audio format as it is read by the author.

I spent most of their eight years in office rebelling against anything the Obama's sought to accomplish. Sadly, I let the political pundits and partisan politics have too much influence on my thinking.

I was excited that we had our first African-American president, but I couldn't fully embrace all of the policies, and therefore was unwilling to embrace this presidency.

My last several years I have invested time and effort to connect with others. The greater the perceived difference, the better the conversation. I always learn more, appreciate others in new ways, and my life is richer as a result.

For those who are fans of the Obama's, this will be an enjoyable read to encounter the experience from Michelle's perspective.

It is more important for those like me to read. I am amazed at how the political machine works to divide and demonize people. It is difficult to witness and does nothing to build up our country.

I see how I have been complicit due to my silence or unwillingness to question what is being broadcast across the various media platforms.

Politics and religion should be talked about at the dinner table, because that is where we meet the humanity of others, and it's harder to hate those up close.

Downhill Ride

The book began well, telling Michelle's early life, and continuing as the author adapted to Barak's campaign for President; but Michelle's story, became less interesting after the Obamas were in the White House. Later in the book, I found too many generalities (gardening) and no specific examples of actions and reactions of POTUS and FLOTUS; specific stories of things that happened between Michelle and other significant people were too few, or Michelle's feelings and reactions were not laid out ..

Great story - from a 54 yo white republican man

I was not a fan of President Obama's policies and views, but I did think he and Michelle we really good people.

I just like good stories with good people; Michelle's life is very different from mine, and I appreciate her experiences and contributions to make us a better, more elevated society.

I only cringed a couple times when she got political and implied only the Republican party dig in their heals and are partisan. but it was infrequently enough for me to still consider this a great book.

For you democrats, since I read this, and since Michelle and W became good friends, 41 - A Portrait of My Father By: George W. Bush. I think you will be equally surprised - regardless of your political view,

Love Michelle But Couldn't Finish

Love Michelle Obama, but I thought it was pretty boring. 30% of it was amazing and enticing, but the rest was kind of mundane. She reads at a very slow speed too. I think I was expecting an autobiography as Trevor Noah's was, but it didn't live up to that for me. My review opinion may be skewed as I tend not to like the autobiographies, but thought hers might be as good as Trevor's.

Thank you, Michelle. That was some speech!

I've been a member of Audible since 2002. I have 670 titles in my library and have listened to all but a handful. They cover almost every genre and I have to say that, while every biography has a unique angle with worthwhile message, Michelle Obama's story is exceptional.

How often are the words in an audiobook actually written by the subject, and not just written in first person by a ghostwriter? How often does an author read more than the first chapter, like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his book? A few. And mostly by actors or comedians who are used to the work.

I loved this book, not only for what Michelle had to say, but because SHE recorded her words in her own voice. This has an effect like no other. The only other book I can think of that stepped out of the audiobook formula was Ruth Bader Ginsburg's story, with its interjection of the actual recordings of events in her life. In Michelle's book you feel like she is sitting next to you, being her true self and telling you her sincerest thoughts over a cup of tea. It is like being in a room with doilies on the coffee table and her aunt playing piano downstairs.

On finishing "Becoming" I have to remind myself that she doesn't know me. If I see her on the street I can't just say "Hi Michelle!" But in this review I can at least say "thank you." Thank you, Michelle, for sharing your story so far. You still have so much good to offer the world, and this story is a great beginning. You are reaching a network of people through this book who are poised on the balls of their toes, ready for something. You are still young (yes!) and positioned to harness all the love and goodness to create something good. You show through example that the world can become a better place through one hand holding another, one mind inspiring empowerment in another. Now go build your own personal life work! Follow up on the plans you made to build your own career. Here is a hug for you!

Now I have to go find you on Twitter or wherever you are.

I like the Obama's, but didnt like her book.

I admire the Obamas, truly! I honestly thought I would enjoy her story. I found it dull and stopped listening when she talked about playdates and drinking wine with other mothers in her messy livingroom. Blah, blah!

started great then got political

I loved the first part however had to cut it short due to her getting into political views. I feel she was trying to incite racism towards the end - there is a way to tell her amazing story without that part. I did not support most of her husbands views however the story of her and her husband was pretty cool. Worth the read up to chapter 20.

First half is boring

1. One can safely skip chapters 1-14. Michelle Obama has a childhood, just a normal childhood, although she is trying hard to find any traumatic experience of how she was disadvantaged based on her skin color. Spoiler alert: couldn’t find any in the book.
2. Be prepared to hear that every person appearing in the book is first sorted into a „white” or „black” box. Even if it is somebody’s secretary and is mentioned just briefly.

Chapters 15-24 are okay. It was interesting to hear how the family balanced their daily life with safety requirements.

I really wanted to enjoy this book...

I really wanted to enjoy this audiobook. I adore Michelle Obama, and I think she’s an inspiring person. However, I found it hard to get through the entire book. It felt a tad dry and overwritten and longer than it needs to be. Her overall story is good, though.

great story, but wish it left out the politics

However, that was a part of the story she felt was important to her and she felt she had to tell it. For that reason I wont fault her for it, but it made me personally not love the book. I loved the beginning where I felt she was a relatable person with a real story to tell. That, in my opinion, is the heart of the book.

We still don’t deserve Michelle Obama

This was a great way to spend twenty hours. I didn’t think I could long for The Obamas any more than I already did, but this book reminds you how we had smart, gracious people in the White House.

Heartwarming, inspiring and just wonderful.

I loved every moment of this book. She doesn't try to sugarcoat her struggles and really shared in a way that she hasn't before. I feel privileged to have read about our FFL's extraordinary and inspiring journey. I also feel empowered to make my own journey, my own.

I feel like I really know Michelle Obama (and the world) a little bit better than I did before. So good.

Wonderful

I had high hopes, and at first I thought the story moved a bit slow - but there was a reason for every little story told. The book ties her stories wonderfully together, and I have a much better undertaking of who Michelle Obama is and what drives her. I am left so very impressed and utterly inspired.

Fascinating & Encouraging

Endearing and enthralling to hear the very ordinary but incredible story of Michelle and her family. Such figures of hope.
