Critic Reviews for Becoming
Michelle told her story with charm, grit, adventurism and several appalling book-tour choices of dress.
Scrape away the gush and the swaggy fashion, and a fascinating portrait emerged of a rather unhappy and discontented high achiever.
With Obama herself as narrator, it's a personal diary -- bereft of tension and short on surprises with a perpetually sunny guide treating you to an intimate but selective tour of her life so far.
The sad, unintended moral of Becoming is that if this country never sees a President Michelle Obama, it is our own fault.
It's a slick look at the former first lady, out of the White House and carving out her life post-politics, but it's as polished and smoothed out as a campaign ad. It's a warm latte, delivered to you in your favorite mug.
