Review – Becoming by Michelle Obama

Becoming surprised me with the scope it covered and the detail that it went into. It was a lovely window into the life of a public figure that I initally thought that I didn’t need to know more about. Thankfully I was proved wrong. Michelle Obama writes well with warmth, humour and purpose. The honesty and clarity was refreshing. It’s a great read, expertly read by the author which gave an added depth. Recommended.
