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!
