    Inhaltsangabe

    Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Becoming by Michelle Obama.

    Winner of the Grammy's Best Spoken Word Album 2020.

    Winner of the 2020 Audie Award for Autobiography/Memoir.

    An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States.

    In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the United States and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. 

    In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "A polished pearl of a memoir." (New York Times)

    "A rich, entertaining and candid memoir. And overall Obama's a fun person to sit alongside as she tells you the story of her life...it is as beautifully written as any piece of fiction." (i)

    "I found myself lifting my jaw from my chest at the end of every other chapter...this was not the Obama I thought I knew. She was more." (Independent)

    Cecilia

    Drei Tage lang habe ich Michelle Obama zugehört und ich bin begeistert, von der Art und Weise wie sie uns Ihre Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen schildert, von den intimen Einblicken in das Leben im Weißen Haus, ihren Betrachtungen, ihre offene Art von ihrer Familie zu erzählen und ihre wunderbare Stimme. Danke, First Lady❤️

    Thank you Michelle for your brilliant Masterpiece

    I listened while laughing, crying and learning so much about America, the black history, the politics and even more about excellence, thriving, deciding and BECOMING! I‘m deeply touched and moved by your book, your life and YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story with me, with the world. Lots of love from Switzerland, Ronja

    Not for europeans

    Though I had an immense respect for Michelle Obama as a rolemodel, being a european women reading this makes you realise she is stuck in a world of racism (including her own, the first thing she writes about anyone is of which colour they are). It is scary to realise someone with such capabilities and power is or needs to be consumed by boxing the world this way, I would have expected she would be above all this. It is nice to read how she deals with work life balance issues, but unfortunately it comes across as if Barack is a self absorbed man, which is probably to be expected if you even want to be president. So unfortunately I liked them much more before this book, wish I didn’t read it. Now I even view Baracks speeches, which I mostly adore differently. In the correspondent’s dinner of his last term for example, he ridiculizes Michelle’s vegetable garden which was a symbol of a health initiative. When you read the book you feel it is one of the few things she could enjoy during that time. That he then chose to mock that to score a joke is in my view inappropriate and disrespectful, possibly even seksist in a way. Michelle must have an insanely thick skin, or already became insensitive to it all. That is what makes the book (listening to her own voice) a sad read in the end, she writes about a journey to become something but it feels like she is lost, even a bit bitter whilst she herself is part of the living american dream.

    If you only read one book in your life, let it be this.

    Michelle is a graceful, humble, passionate and thoroughly kind human and I wish this book was mandatory at schools everywhere. Give people time off work to read it. Pass it out on the street. Be more like her! Love! Care!

    Hervorragendes Hörerlebnis mit Tiefe

    Die Tatsache, dass Michelle Obama ihre geschriebenen Worte selbst spricht, gibt ihrer Geschichte eine tiefere Ebene.
    Sie spricht, so hatte ich das Gefühl, sehr ehrlich über ihre Kindheit, ihren beruflichen Werdegang und ihre Zeit im Weißen Haus. Die Geschichten sind sehr gut strukturiert und geben einen Einblick hinter die Kulissen einer öffentlichen Person. Sie hat die Gelegenheit ergriffen, ihre Geschichte aus ihrer Sicht zu erzählen. Ein Paralleluniversum hinter einer schillernden Fassade aufzuzeigen, die so weit vom perfekt sein entfernt ist wie es nur möglich ist.
    Wahnsinnig gut geschrieben, mitfühlend gelesen - ein Einblick in eine sonst verschlossene Welt, die zeigt, dass wir alle nur Menschen sind, die niemals „fertig“ sind, sondern immer „becoming“.

    Becoming .... More like Michelle Obama!

    I was really skeptical, thinking this book might be overhyped. But wow, my mind was changed in the first few moments. Michelle Obama is an incredible woman: honest, vulnerable, poetic and powerful. She isn’t shy to talk about the painful sides of being married to a super-busy go-getter, or being a working mother or the first black First Lady - while still conveying a sure (and beautiful) sense of “it is worth it all”.
    After reading her path of Becoming, I wish to become a little more like Michelle Obama: kind, collected, community-oriented.
