The story of Michelle Obama’s life is told in Becoming in a way that sucks the reader in and helps you to understand how she was feeling at the time and why she did what she did. While I did not vote for her husband, I do have a new appreciation for the Obamas, and especially for Michelle as a woman, wife, and mother, having read her book. I recommend Becoming to anyone interested in knowing where Michelle Obama came from and what life in the White House can be like for a first lady who isn’t too fond of politics.
