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 US 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.

Hard to get into.

I love Michelle Obama, however this book was hard to listen to. It was very slow and couldn’t get engaged. Couldn’t get past the first couple chapters. Ended up returning it.

Earnest, earnest, earnest, oh and more being earnest. How many times did Michelle say earnest?

Had different expectations.

It's not a bad book. I just had different expectations. Being an Obama family fan and with an expectation that this book comes from Mrs Obama, I wanted to read her journey, her contribution to the presidentship. We do get that but in patches.
"I was not bossy, I was just confident." This line automatically set an expectation that we are going to get an overhaulish account from the ex-FLOTUS. But the book losses the track and then what we get in almost half the book is Mr Obama - the President's journey. By the time, we get back to Michelle Obama's experiences again, the book is more than 3/4th done. Maybe, the expectations were set accordingly through various post book tours that this is more about a family journey - a political change that came across with Obama presidency. But with a title like Becoming, a reader actually feels misled that what he ended up with was not what the book tried to deliver.

Boring

I struggled to finish it. I did learn a few interesting things but mostly it was about the Obama's being black & overcoming things. I'm happy for them but found the book boring.

Too many minute details.

For sure, a former First Lady must have a lot worth sharing so why this book is consumed by so many tiny details is beyond me. I found it a waste of time.

Tries too hard

Could not get past the first few chapters. The book tries too hard to read like a novel versus an autobiography or memoir. Language way too flowery, scenes way over described, too ornate.

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.

Love the Obamas but found the book just so so

I love President Obama and the former First Lady. The book, however, is repetitive, and sometimes feel like an annual report (times 8 years). The focus about protecting her family is overdone, especially when the country was facing major challenges like the 2008 recession. This is just about the book, I’m grateful for all they did for the country.

Boring.

I like Michelle Obama. A lot. I know this is a hit book. I think it might be a far better read than a listen. I quit after the first two chapters of her monotone rendering of the normal thoughts of most children, read as if they were almost poetic and special.

Sure wouldn’t discourage reading the book. It’s just that the audible version didn’t please me a bit, after the preface made me excited to hear the rest.

Uneventful

I may try this again at some point but for now it just didn’t keep my attention. Very slow start. I really like the First Lady so I was excited to get this. It might be amazing further in but I couldn’t get past the first half 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.
