This is not a famous person autobiography giving us the recipe how she did it. Not at all. This is the story of a gifted girl growing up in the South Side of Chicago who, against all odds, is accepted into an Ivy League school and becomes a lawyer. It is the story of an intelligent woman who has to make choices to do what is best for her family and her children, while also finding ways to grow herself. A woman who, despite all of her accomplishments, keeps asking herself ‘Am I good enough?’ Her story is well written and there are many inspirational lines. I will cite one section that I especially liked.

“Hamilton touched me because it reflected the kind of history I'd lived myself. It told a story about America that allowed the diversity in. I thought about this afterward: So many of us go through life with our stories hidden, feeling ashamed or afraid when our whole truth doesn't live up to some established ideal. We grow up with messages that tell us that there's only one way to be American - that if our skin is dark or our hips are wide, if we don't experience love in a particular way, if we speak another language or come from another country, then we don't belong. That is, until someone dares to start telling that story differently.” ( )

De memoires van een uitzonderlijk vrouw.
Openhartig vertel Michelle hoe haar leven eruit heeft gezien tot nu toe.
Ze begint met het vertrek uit het witte huis. Daarna begint het verhaal met haar jeugd en zo tot op het moment waar het boek mee begint. Een mooie cirkel dus.

Een absolute aanrader ( )

Very good. I did listen to the audio but then had to buy the book. ( )

I want to live next door to Michelle Obama and have tea or lunch with her once a week. What a story and what a life. Honest, detailed, generous. She own's her box-checking, detail-oriented ways from the start along with her lack of interest in politics. I love this self awareness along with her loyalty, love of family, and devotion to friends.

Following the strong and skillful writing of another memoir (the fifth in the genre by that writer), Obama's writing felt less smooth, a occasionally self conscious and precise. And it is a long read. But well worth the time. I began with a print copy and half way through switched to audio book. I kept going because of her intonation, her emphasis, her rhythm.

Without comparison to someone who makes a living as a writer, this is a five.

I wrote a few lines from the epilogue in my journal:
"There is power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice. And there's grace in being willing to know and hear others." ( )

4.5 stars! I love Michelle & the first half of the book was amazing!! The second half was slower for me as she seemed to highlight policy and things accomplished in the 8 years of the White House. The real stories of husband/ wife and family were less frequent. She is an eloquent writer and I loved the storytelling. ( )

The summary of Obama’s White House initiatives relies on promotional language and well-worn anecdotes, and the book’s final pages are just a shade away from an overt advertisement for the Obama Foundation. The memoir’s “bombshell” revelations, which the media has projected as revelations of the female condition writ large—a discussion of Obama’s use of fertility treatment to conceive her daughters, and of a period of her marriage in which “frustrations began to rear up often and intensely”—belie how much the rest of the text withholds.
I suspect that some of Becoming’s power lies in the ways it employs the techniques of a novel more than those of a typical political memoir—in its honesty about human nature and ambivalence, yes, but also in its colorful and idiosyncratic details ... in its willingness to let anecdotes speak for themselves rather than pedantically spelling out their lessons.

Becoming is frequently funny, sometimes indignant or enraged, and when Michelle describes her father’s early death from multiple sclerosis it turns rawly emotional.
tilføjet af g33kgrrl | RedigerThe Guardian, Peter Conrad (Nov 18, 2018)
But despite how close we get to her voice here, it’s never quite close enough. She lets us into all kinds of memories, including tender recollections, romantic dates, and triumphant moments on the campaign trail. But for all her candidness, there is still a veil of privacy around the inner workings of this reluctant public figure. She draws the reader in, but pauses at arm’s length. Maybe this is all we can expect, in text, from this woman with so much presence. As she says herself, she’s more of a hugger.

Even if Becoming is not always interesting, it is much more interesting than it needed to be to qualify as a successful first lady memoir. And as an example of how to walk the tightrope — how to seem charming but not like an intellectual lightweight; how to get things done without seeming threatening; how to do all of the impossible things we demand of women in general, of first ladies in particular, and of the first black first lady as an absolute — Becoming is a straight-up master class.

To all the people who have helped me become:

the folks who raised me---Fraser, Marian, Craig,
and my vast extended family,

my circle of strong women, who always lift me up,

my loyal and dedicated staff, who continue to make me proud.
To the loves of my life:

Malia and Sasha, my two most precious peas,
who are my reason for being,

and finally, Barack, who always promised me an interesting journey.
