REVIEW: Take a walk with Michelle

While listening and moving to Becoming, members felt they had a new workout partner in author and narrator Michelle Obama.

Her friendly tone pulled members in from the start, and they felt like they lost a friend once the book was completed. When you listen to Becoming, you understand why her autobiography won a Grammy and an Audie award.

Here’s what The Walking Book Club members had to say about Becoming:

“A book to make you laugh out loud and cry. Full of humanity and inspiration. “When they go low, we go high.”

“It’s a remarkable book. I’ve listened to it twice while walking or gardening. Enjoy it.”

“I loved it, especially as she narrated it herself.”

“I’m finding myself talking to my girls about this book. I had a great discussion with my teenage daughter last night about some of the issues Michelle raises … I hope she knows how far and wide she is reaching.”

“I listened to it and really liked it. My only criticism is that I felt it was too long, and she would have benefited from a better editor. That said, I felt like I got a lot of insight into her and her family. Also, her voice was soooo soothing and pleasant to listen to. I was driving through a blinding rainstorm one day and kept saying, “Keep talking to me, Michelle…keep talking to me.” All in all, I enjoyed the book and was glad that I chose the audio version.”

“…what a wonderful human being – I love the stories she shares about her extended family.”
