Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michelle Obama

Biography & Memoir • 19 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

In a rich, warm timbre, Michelle Obama treats us to reminiscences and reflections on her life as though we were friends seated in her living room. No matter where you are on the political spectrum, the insights of “the other Obama” are interesting due to the sheer fact of her uniqueness. Her signature quiet confidence comes through every word as she narrates her story. From growing up on the South Side of Chicago to becoming America's first African-American first lady, Mrs. Obama is steady, measured, and detailed in her recollections. We accompany her from her family's home, full of extended family members and closeness, into the arms of a charismatic community organizer. Her words are laced throughout with a steely determination, the same quality that likely helped her weather Internet trolling and personal losses. This intimate listening experience allows us behind the public exterior and into the warm embrace of private revelations by one of our nation’s most beloved role models. M.R.
