fantastic story of hardship,struggle,abuse,pain and strength told by a 15 year old boy. The narrator captures the Australian venacular perfectly.

Uninspiring

I expected more from the USA's first Black American First Lady. Her path to the White House was easy and somewhat boring. She didn't have to strive hard for anything in her life. She was blessed with a middle class upbringing,stable family and an amazing husband whose complexities contrasted with her blandness. The story covered all bases you would expect from an autobiography, the lengthy telling from her childhood to adulthood but left me wanting some sort of emotional response, or connection with Michelle Obama. Her story is cerebral. It didn't have heart.
