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.

it was heart touching... story of becoming daughter, wife mom and after all first Lady too. normally i find autobiographies are boring but "becoming" is totally different. It is simple story or better way life journey describing up and down of life... without highlighting any politicial issue or cursing someone...
it is simplest how women tried define and prove herself in male and colour dominated society..
Also as it is narrated by Michelle Obama... her voice was totally mesmerizing... it kept you holded to book... made felt as if all things are happening in front and u are third person looking and feeling the same...
Most heart touching incident for me in this book was the last day Mrs Michelle with her father which actually broke me in tears...
Mam please continue ur written work with same tempo as reader I will love to not only read as well as follows you...
Thanks for ur guidance...
