    Description

    An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former first lady of the United States.

    Number one New York Times best seller 

    Watch the Emmy-nominated Netflix original documentary

    Oprah’s Book Club Pick

    NAACP Image Award Winner

    One of Essence’s 50 most impactful Black books of the past 50 years  

    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.

    Commentaires

    “A serious work of candid reflection by a singular figure of early-twenty-first-century America... Becoming is refined and forthright, gracefully written and at times laugh-out-loud funny.” (Isabel Wilkerson, The New York Times Book Review)

    Becoming is inspirational without trying to be. From the first words, the very warmth that permeates its author emanates from the pages.... Becoming manages to be a coming-of-age tale, a love story and a family saga all in one. More importantly, this book is a reminder that America is still a work-in-progress, and that hope can be an action word if we allow it to be. Becoming is a balm that America needs, from a woman America does not yet deserve.” (Angie Thomas, Time)

    “Deeply personal and refreshingly honest... She’s thoughtful, humorous, bracingly revealing, and when it’s time, she does us all the favor of showing us the human side of a man worshipped by so many.... It’s human and genuine and welcoming to see the layers of humanity she holds open.... Michelle Obama’s story can maybe inspire you to find a path for your own story.” (Shonda Rhimes, Shondaland)

    Génial, passionnant, tellement éclairant

    Je me souviens de mon plaisir à savoir qu'un homme noir avait enfin atteint les hauts sphères du pouvoir, je me souviens d'avoir apprécié le caractère exceptionnel de son épouse. C'était un vrai bonheur de la découvrir dans cette autobiographie, lue par elle qui plus est.

    Le couple Obama est exceptionnel, nul doute après la lecture de ce livre audio. Je n'ose imaginer leur déception à l'arrivée putride de l'autre, l'erreur de parcours. Elle l'évoque à la fin, ça donne la nausée.

    Le livre raconte son parcours à elle évidemment, petite fille de milieu très modeste, avec un père handicapé très courageux, sa rencontre avec Obama, leur vie de couple, l'éducation de leurs enfants.

    J'adore son franc parler, même quand elle évoque les sacrifices consentis pour la carrière de son mari, les doutes, les frustrations. Elle évoque son engagement en tant que première dame.

    Sa lecture est touchante, dynamique.

    Non mais quelle bonne femme ! Un vrai modèle !

    J'adore, je recommande. En plus on découvre les petits secrets d'arrière cuisine de la maison blanche, c'est très divertissant.

    inspiring book which offers a different perspective. I stopped after the first chapters, but then picked up the listening again and DO NOT REGRET at all

    Imspirational -

    love that Michelle reads her own book -
    it made it that much more gripping.
    I cried at least once in each chapter - not only sad tears, happy ones too.
    The Obamas were the change we needed in the US, such shame that the American people can't come together as one and we are so divided.

    Témoignage intéressant

    Cette autobiographie de Michelle Obama est un témoignage intéressant sur la société états-unienne à notre époque. Le texte tire en longueur, ce qui est dommage. Cela étant, l'entendre lu par l'auteure elle-même est un vrai plus.

    Inspiring and mind opening

    This book is an inspiration for every mother who wonder how to balance career and family, what sacrifices and choices to make. It's an inspiration for every woman of a minority. An inspiration for every woman who wants to make a difference but feel the confidence. And it's a mind opener for every human being on humanity and how politics should be, from the perspective of the humble wife of the most powerful politician who had to organise and sacrifice her whole life to support her husband make the world a better place, despite what she wanted. A true lesson of humility.

    Like a friend

    The voice is calme, and the story interesting, sometimes funny, other times sad.

    I didn't expect to love an autobiography, but here we are

    High hopes = kind of disappointed

    Very well read and written, and the story is cool but I thought Michelle was a Hero on her Own.

    Lots of gossip about kids and clothes and media...

    I expected an outstanding first lady but not that much...

    Boring

    I’ve read so many amazing memoirs and this one just didn’t capture me at all. This story sounds like a Disney fairytale for little girls. Everything Is just perfect in her life, perfect mom and dad and brother and husband. Even the arguments with her fiancé were perfect. Boring, boring, boring, had to stop reading.

    Whew. What a story.

    From the South Side of Chicago to the WHITE HOUSE! Whew. Let that sink in. As a black woman, this book moved me differently than any other book I’ve read in recent memory. Letting me know it’s ok that I’m still “Becoming” and that I have the right to enter any space I want to! I loved Mrs. Obama before, but I was introduced to Michelle Robinson Obama and I love her even more. She read her own story like she was talking directly to me and I loved that. It was like sitting down at your Auntie House and she was telling you all tea over a good glass of wine! I’m so thankful for her sharing her story and being so open and honest about it all. What a story!

    This book opened my eyes to a lot of things. I’ve always had mad respect for the Obamas but this heightened that respect. Michelle Obama is very open and transparent in this book.

    I love listening to Michelle Obama share in her own voice her story! I feel strongly that everyone regardless of race or gender should read this book. Thank you Michelle for sharing your authentic voice with the public!

    Definitely worth an Audible credit

    Well, heck!! How am I supposed to go out writing a review for a masterpiece like ‘Becoming.’ I truly feel that I cannot do the book justice.

    To put it simply, I loved this book!!

    As a storyteller, Michelle was perfect; her warmth, intelligence, and straightforward manner of speaking all carried through as she described her childhood experiences all the way to her two terms as Flotus. I couldn’t help but feel an immense sense of admiration as she detailed some of her struggles.

    Furthermore, as a listener, it was fascinating hearing the stories that helped Michelle become who she is today. I will admit that being the nosy person that I am, I particularly enjoyed her behind-the-scenes account of living in the White House. However, it was all amazing.

    Overall, I find it difficult to write a more detailed review simply because I loved everything about this book. I laughed in parts, got teary-eyed in others, but mostly, I got a feeling of hopeful energy from this book. I doubt that there is one person that wouldn't benefit from reading 'Becoming' regardless of political affiliations as, despite being involved, this biography isn't explicitly about politics.

    I give this book full marks and would not hesitate to recommend this book, especially for those of us who could use a little hope in these grim times.

    Boring

    I was excited to listen because of all the good reviews and it being a best seller. Besides, I love autobiographies. in the begging I wasn't hooked right up, and I tried too many times to continue but it just isn't worth it. I don't understand the reviews that give it 5 stars, are we listening to the same book? Save your time and money. I'm sad the time has passed and I cant returned it...

    I was totally disappointed. The subject
    Material was too concentrated on her childhood.

    Also felt it was incredibly negatively.

    Amaaaaaazing

    I loved her before, for her 'dignity' and poise but it's only now that I really understand why. A beautifully written rendering of an incredible life so far, and long may it last, with aptly chosen words for every occasion. Hearing her soothing, calming, educated voice was a pleasure over the past month on my way to various destinations. Already my book of the year.

    what a woman

    I admired her already before listening to this and she always seemed to be far away. But listening to her telling me her story-it felt like I met her in person and I came to know her personally.
    Great book with an even better message! I recommend this book to everyone I talk to

    Sehr gut aber nicht besonders spannend

    Es gab einige Gänsehaut Momente und ich habe viel gelernt aber es hat sehr lange gedauert, bis ich es durchgehört habe. Es war in dem Sinne nicht Fesselnd. Aber die Geschichte von Michelle Obama selbst vorgelesen zu bekommen empfand ich als sehr bewegend.

    Fantastic - Great - Einfach großartig!

    Best biography ever! Michelle Obama is a very great person and married to one of the best politicians in the world. The story is told in a very interesting way with many private details and also historical information. If there were more people like this couple, the world would be much better!

    Einfach großartig, wie spannend und dennoch informativ Michelle Obama ihre außergewöhnliche Lebensgeschichte erzählt. Empfehlenswertes Buch für jeden, der sich für die amerikanische Geschichte interessiert und etwas mehr über Rassismus in Amerika erfahren möchte.
