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.

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.

A must

The book is excellent, so is the reading. The way she tells her story is great as there's no self-pity or self-gratification there, just her story. She also gives a lot of tips and life lessons we could all use along the way. I just loved it!

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.

This was painful!

It took me a year to get through this book and only did because of pure determination that I paid for it so I will listen to it. She was so descriptive that it was the longest 18 hours ever. It was ridiculous that at one point she describes that Barack was such a noble man they didn’t use the $100K to redo the living quarters but then spent tax payers money to go to NY for a date night. Unless you really love the Obamas I would not suggest this book. I did not get one aha moment out of it.

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.

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.

Very Slow

I have to admit that I'm disappointed with this book. It's incredibly slow so I've been listening to it in double time. I've been trudging through it looking for the pearls of wisdom or deep insight, but it's mostly filled with the minutia of the day to day tasks. I've recently watched the documentary "fed up" and the ineffectiveness of the Move campaign. I was hoping to get Michelle's viewpoint on the challenges and why she gave up on her commitment to real change but she simply glossed over this topic only offering a high level synopsis.

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
