Becoming by Michelle Obama 421 pages

If you’re a fan, you’ll want to read it. if you’re not, you won’t.  Becoming covers Michelle Obama’s life from before she was born to when she and Barack left The White House.  It is not a quick read.  It is packed with personal details of her life, her opinions about everything from politics to motherhood and her hopes for her country and her family.  By the time I got about a third of the way through her memoir, I felt I truly knew Michelle Robinson Obama.  Even if one doesn’t agree with her views, her journey from a one bedroom apartment on Chicago’s South Side to Harvard Law School and then to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is an incredible trip!

    I utterly lost myself in this book. For the days/hours I was reading it, I had visions of a place with a higher standard of ethics and the acknowledgement of the beauty of ethnicity. Loved the Chicago environs. I’m just now starting Overstory which you recommended some time ago. Thank you for your work on this, Nancy.

  2. Yes, I agree. To read her memoir, for me, was a bittersweet experience. Couldn’t help comparing where we were and where we are now. Thanks for your comments. Let me know what you think of The Overstory. Happy New Year.
