Allmänna fakta



It is a warm, powerful, and inspirational chronicle by the former First Lady of the United States. Perfection.

Enlightening book from a very intelligent, humble, relatable, reflective woman about what it's like to be at the center of the political world as First Lady while also trying to maintain a semblance of normalcy as a parent, wife and professional. Lengthy, well-written and chock full of anecdotes about the Obama family.

Edit: 5 stars to 4, still think its an awesome book

This was understandably an amazing read. Michelle Obama is a great story teller and hearing about her families life before and during Obamas presidency was hugely informative. It was emotional, it was uplifting it was heartbreaking.

The five star is for the message and the amazing story telling. I will admit though that at some points I felt like it was too long, I was ready to get to the end and move on. And then at other times I was fully engaged forgetting completely about the length just focused on hearing the story. I don't think I would want to remove any part of it as it was all interesting to hear I just think you have to be in the mood.… (mer)

Michelle is just lovely. I enjoyed Becoming a little more, but The Light We Carry is still a great read
