Becoming by Michelle Obama

5 Stars

Inspirational and thought-provoking

First, I must say, I am an admirer of Michelle Obama. Now, if she never became the First Lady, I would probably not really know who she was. The public sees the First Lady as this icon, and that I believe she is, but I think there is much more behind who she is, and what she has done. So, I was anxious to read this story, written in her words, about her life and experiences. I enjoyed how this was put together, and I learned a lot about her background, and her life living in Chicago. She came from humble beginnings, and never lost sight of where she came from. I found the book to be real, not just have a partial realism. That Mrs. Obama is indeed a truly beautiful person, not just on the outside, but the inside as well. Her thoughts and actions that surrounded motherhood, the loss of friends and family, and how she fell in love with a man that would be President. I not only found her words inspiring, but I learned about her life, her family and some things I didn't know about living in the White House, the things you'd never know unless you experienced it. I am glad I invested in this book and read it from cover to cover, taking in the statements, whether written or unsaid, who am I and who do I want to become? It's not about politics, but about being human, and sharing experiences to lift up others, never tearing anyone down.
