I actually enjoyed reading this book! I like the insights to her life before, during,and after being in the white house. Got a kick out of some of her thought process. But, also, I enjoyed the work she has done regardless what anyone thought of her. If this is the type of read you are looking for, t...

I started this a while ago, but then I seemed to just grind to a halt. I didn't stop for any particular reason; the book group I was reading it for had passed and I suppose other things got in its way. So, now I've picked it up and completed it - I didn't want it to go the same way as her husband's ...

After listening to Ms Obama's words I had the audio version, I found myself questioning everything I thought I knew as facts, and looking at my own thoughts about the person. She turned out to be someone amazing, with grit, attitude, intelligence, a mother with a drive to make things better for thos...

I have so many disparate thoughts surrounding this book, but one very solid thought about the book itself. So, the TL;DR version is: it's excellent. If you're a hellbent for leather "Republican", stay away from it; you won't enjoy it and it will probably do terrible things for your blood pressure...

I apologize in advance if this seems a little incoherent. What a great memoir! Michelle Obama hits everything that I love in memoirs. She goes into her childhood, her family, how her parents and family shaped her. And then you get to read about how certain incidents throughout her life defined her...

This was a really great read! I found myself telling people about it while I was reading it and I really don’t do that all too often. The way it is written with warmth and humor and genuiness in a matter-of-fact manner makes one appreciate the written word and the art of story telling even more. Mic...

I Picked Up This Book Because: Love her!I quite enjoyed this detailed account of Mrs. Obama’s life. From growing up in Chicago to meeting Mr. Obama to a peak behind the curtain as her time as First Lady of the United States of America. This book was very personal, thoughtful and enlightening. Mrs. ...
