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.

I really enjoyed this talking book. It was written in an easy to listen to way. My husband and I would listen before our evening meal and try to appreciate the behind the scene workings of the Whitehouse. I wish Michelle and her family all the best for the future.

I love this book and read it at least once a year so it was great to find the talking version. The characters are fantastic and the story line is believable AND it has a happy ending. What more can you want from a book. 😊

A story of desperation, resolution and small-town prejudice played out against the blistering extremes of life on the land. Amid the worst drought to ravage Australia in a century, a farmer turns his gun on his family and then himself. As questions mount and suspicion casts a long shadow over the parched town, specialist investigator Aaron Falk is forced to confront the community that rejected him 20 years earlier.

I really enjoyed this book. I listened on a long drive during a tour in China and it easily kept my attention while I enjoyed the scenery out of the window. I found the characters believable and the plot fast paced with a good twist.
