Description

The number-one international best seller - and the Grammy-award winner for best spoken album in 2006.

Before Barack Obama became a politician, he was, among other things, a writer. Dreams from My Father is a masterpiece: a refreshing, revealing portrait of a young man asking the big questions about identity and belonging.

The son of a black African father and a white American mother, Obama recounts an emotional odyssey. He retraces the migration of his mother's family from Kansas to Hawaii, then to his childhood home in Indonesia. Finally he travels to Kenya, where he confronts the bitter truth of his father's life and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.

Commentaires

"A remarkable story, beautifully told." (Observer)

"This may be the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician." (Joe Klein,  Time magazine)

"Extraordinary...truly moving...Obama is a born narrator, with a mastery of colour, scene and personality." (Simon Jenkins, Sunday Times

interesting lifestory

it's been a great experience to listen to Barack Obama himself narrate his story and though at times I trailed off while driving I liked the story. after Michelle's book kind of make sense they paired up :)

Very interesting.

I enjoyed learning about Barack's life story and I was glad it was his voice reading. It wasn't captivating but interesting and occasionally his intonation was a bit much but I did enjoy it. His speech at the end brought tears to my eyes and summed up the achievement of his life with a powerful emotion that I did not feel in his autobiography.

Characters brought to life

I read the book, and then for a college course I was assigned the book again. This time I choose to listen to the audio version and I was not disappointed. This story comes to life in Barack's voice and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Good to understand Obama's early years.

I enjoyed the book. Obama is going through his early days in Hawaii, Jakarta amd Chicago and his ties to Kenia. I am sure many people can relate to such a childhood between the races.

Powerful!

A wonderful honest and informative
Insight into the questions that many of us no longer dare to address! Race discussions, these days, are something complicated and a lot of times best left undebated about.
It’s great to listen to the author taking on different narrative personas. Humorous at times but above all questions about family, our history and our own becoming. Well worth a “read”!!!

What a man: Barack Obama! ❤️

Thank you for telling your family story. The world is grateful for men and women like you. Outstanding story, history, fantastic style, fantastic speaker/reader.
Only people with your beliefs, your charisma, your abilities should become leader of a nation. Unfortunately we now got the worst possible successor. Hopefully the damage is revocable.
Thank you again, Mr. PRESIDENT.

Wonderful book

This is an amazing story. The background of Obama’s family is very complicated and getting all the names and relationships sorted was somewhat confusing and I had to go back on this a few times. Also, much as I love his voice, he reads too fast. A bit more calm would have been better. But really worth reading/hearing!
I recommend it.

Eine schöne sehr interessante Geschichte

Die Geschichte ist wirklich interessant zu Hören, aber das Highlight des Hörbuches war einfach der Sprecher. Barack obama belebt wirklich den Text mit seiner Stimme.
