"An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States. When she was a little girl, Michelle Robinson's world was the South Side of Chicago, where she and her brother, Craig, shared a bedroom in their family's upstairs apartment and played catch in the park, and where her parents, Fraser and Marian Robinson, raised her to be outspoken and unafraid. But life soon took her much further afield, from the halls of Princeton, where she learned for the first time what if felt like to be the only black woman in a room, to the glassy office tower where she worked as a high-powered corporate lawyer--and where, one summer morning, a law student named Barack Obama appeared in her office and upended all her carefully made plans. Here, for the first time, Michelle Obama describes the early years of her marriage as she struggles to balance her work and family with her husband's fast-moving political career. She takes us inside their private debate over whether he should make a run for the presidency and her subsequent role as a popular but oft-criticized figure during his campaign. Narrating with grace, good humor, and uncommon candor, she provides a vivid, behind-the-scenes account of her family's history-making launch into the global limelight as well as their life inside the White House over eight momentous years--as she comes to know her country and her country comes to know her. [This book] takes us through modest Iowa kitchens and ballrooms at Buckingham Palace, through moments of heart-stopping grief and profound resilience, bringing us deep into the soul of a singular, groundbreaking figure in history as she strives to live authentically, marshaling her personal strength and voice in service of a set of higher ideals. In telling her story with honesty and boldness, she issues a challenge to the rest of us: Who are we and who do we want to become?"--Jacket.… (mer)

I really like Michelle Obama but her life's been pretty humdrum and doesn't exactly make for an exciting thriller-type read. Still, I appreciate what she's trying to do here and if she'd waited until she was an old lady to write her autobiography, I would likely have found it enthralling. ( )

This was a lovely, beautifully written memoir by an intelligent, big-hearted woman. I’ve admired Michelle for over a decade now, but this memoir adds a depth to that admiration.
I wish the book had included more after the inauguration in 2017, but I suspect that would have changed the tone of the book... and not for the better. I look forward to following her career.

I listened to the audiobook, which is narrated by Michelle, and it felt like sitting down with her for a long chat. I highly recommend the audio if you are able to read in that format. ( )

Read a second time and enjoyed much more. Rated 4 1/2 from 2

I loved this memoir by former first lady, Michelle Obama. Honest, open dialogue about her childhood in Chicago and the chaos that occurred after she met and married the future president. She is very relatable - as a child, college student, young lover, mother, lawyer, and First Lady. I have seen her speak in person, and the book truly sounds as if she were sharing her stories with you over a cup of coffee or glass of wine. What I didn't like about the book was, because it is a memoir of the Former First Lady, there are a lot of political names dropped. I had to skim through some of those details. Yes! I would recommend this book - Reviewed by bconlin ( )

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.
tillagd av g33kgrrl | ändraThe 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.
tillagd av g33kgrrl | ändraVanity Fair, Sonia Saraiya (Nov 15, 2018)
 
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.
