Mi historia

3.5
Un íntimo, poderoso e inspirador libro de memorias de la exprimera dama de Estados Unidos.

Protagonista de una vida plena y exitosa, Michelle Obama se ha convertido en una de las mujeres más icónicas y cautivadoras de nuestra era. Como primera dama de los Estados Unidos de América, y primera afroamericana en desempeñar esa función, contribuyó a que la Casa Blanca alcanzara sus mayores cotas de apertura y pluralidad de la historia; se erigió en destacada defensora de las mujeres y las niñas en Estados Unidos y en el resto del mundo, introdujo cambios drásticos encaminados a promover una vida saludable y activa en las familias, y acompañó a su esposo cuando el país atravesaba algunos de los momentos más desgarradores de su historia. Por el camino nos enseñó pasos de baile, causó furor en Carpool Karaoke y consiguió criar a dos hijas con los pies en la tierra bajo el implacable escrutinio de los medios de comunicación.

En sus memorias, profundamente reflexivas y cautivadoras, Michelle Obama invita al lector a entrar en su mundo relatando las experiencias que han forjado su carácter, desde su infancia en la zona sur de Chicago, hasta los años que vivió en la residencia más famosa del mundo, pasando por su etapa como alta directiva, durante la que tuvo que compaginar la maternidad con la vida profesional. Haciendo gala de una honestidad a toda prueba y de un ingenio vivaz, describe sus logros y decepciones tanto en la esfera pública como en la privada, y narra sin ambages la historia de su ida, con sus propias palabras y en sus propios términos. Cálido, lúcido y revelador, Becoming es un relato excepcionalmente íntimo de una mujer de gran moralidad y valía, que una vez y otra ha superado todas las expectativas y cuya historia nos inspira a seguir su ejemplo.

I stood at the foot of the mountain, knowing I 'd eed to climb my way into favor. " God, do I miss the Obamas.Since I 've had the right to vote, two presidents have energized and excited me—Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

I ha always wowed by the sheer joy she appeared to ave for the job of First Lady, despite the overwhelming amount of cruelty she and her family were subjected to throughout her husband 's two terms as President.With

She talks of her inabilit to make an impact as First Lady while at the same time ensuring her daughters' lives were as " normal " as they could possibly be, and the successes, fear, and disappointments she experienced.I love the matter-of-fact way she shares her feelings and experiences, revealing emotions and ears and moments of frustration, as ofte as the moments of sheer joy, as daughte, as mother, as mother, and as First Lady.

The is th girl who oves her life, loves her country, and most importantly, loves her daughter, her parents, and her family.

I became a father, but I continue to adapt to and be humbled by what it means to truly love and ake a life with th person.

In book, she reflects on what her life was like as she was raised on the South Side of Chicago and her roots in her working class family.

Along the way, we experience the grief she felt when she lost her father too soon.

And we g to follow along as she met Barrack Obama, a junior awyer, and what it was like dating ( and eventually marrying) the future president.And from there, we learn what the White House is like- from the gardens to the galas, Michelle Obama walks through every aspect of juggling work, motherhood and being the First Lady.

We ere reall lucky and blessed to have the woman in our White House- I reall coul not recommend this enough.

Audiobook read by Michelle ObamaFor the past three days- all I anted to do was listen to Michelle Obama .....

THIS BOOK will be ‘ especially ’ special to her immediate family and closest friends .... but it ’ s lso a great gift to the est of us.

obody else but Michelle could have written a book- it ’ s so MICHELLE ’ S STORY!

She is gifted in her willingnes to express her own emotions- write with tremendous insight and sensitivity and from beginning to end it ’ s artistically rendered with meticulous attention to details.

We are blessed to have her —- simply sharing HERSELF- BEING HERSELF- SHARING ABOUT HER LIFE- HER PARENTS- HER THOUGHTS- FEELINGS- PROJECTS THAT ARE MEANINGFUL TO HER .... HER MARRIAGE- HER DAUGHTERS- HER FAMILY FRIENDS- BEING A WOMAN- BEING BLACK- LESSONS SHE HAS LEARNED AND IS STILL WORKING OUT- HER WARMTH -HER HUMOR- HER HONESTY& HUMANITY- etc.

but it ’ s incredibly difficul to love Michelle Obama .....

She grew into becoming comfortable with his running.They did well overall .... as husband and son and as parents while also being in the life of politics -- living in hite house with security guards everywhere they went.

Michelle raised two daughters in the White House as normal as she should.

None of us readers have lived in he White House- but she shares th story that most readers will connect with.

Michelle spends a long time telling us about her early childhood.

Michelle taught me things in his ook about being black —- really being black — not just a oman and black — but what she went through all her life as a very hard working BLACK women WHO ALWAYS HAD TO KEEP REACHING- achievement oriented- her goals were important to her.

Her years at Princeton really shows what she went through.I learned something else from Michelle too ..... Things about her ‘ family ’- her parents- the tight knit ways they all were with one another- her incredible love for he older brother .....

When I arrived to listening to the Audiobook— Michelle was still talking about how wonderful her mom was and dad were, their family car- the Buick- family time* together* ..... SO MUCH FAMILY TIME- HAPPY MEMORIES ..... something shifted in me.

Hanging out at her house after school- meeting her mom and those gracious sandwiches her mom prepared for Michelle and her girlfriends was just cozy wonderful.

I felt to e acquaintance with Michelle ..... feel safe in her home ...... cherished her mom and dad too.

It was mpossible not to fall in love with not only Michelle- but her parents- brother Craig- Susan ( Michelle ’ s best friend in college), and her aughters, Malia and Sasha, My affinity was also warm for people who supported their family in the White House.

Barack and Michelle are grounded in love- willing to support each individually as whole separate beings.

🐛I loved hearing about Michelle ’ s high school AND college years ..... Yet I felt ngry ‘ with ’ her that years later during the Barack Obama campaign, somebody dug up an old paper that Michelle wrote when she was at Princeton as a young graduat student and wrote nasty things saying she was a black radical.

Michelle has contributed to other potential first ladies by writing his ook.

For over a year Michelle had zero support from the Obama campaign team.

Nonetheless, while Michelle was campaigning- traveling from state to state- not with Obama- everything was going great until all of th sudden it wasn ’ t.

I otally love both Michelle and Barack.

cute moment ... Michelle learned early in childhood that she could discuss things with her children.

Month later a college counselor was the opposite of listening to Michelle.

She never talk to that counselor again .... In other words she wasn ’ t he oman she celebrated with when she was accepted.Michelle Robinson Obama- is helping breakdown those prejudices just by speaking out- her voice is powerful- she ’ s ore than good enough!

I didn ’ t hink I could appreciat and respect former First Lady Michelle Obama any more than I previousl did.

Her story begins: “ I spent much of my childhood listening to the sound of striving. ” She speaks lovingly of her roots in this working class family- her parents and her stepfather and grandparents and how their values shaped the adult she would become.

We witness the grief she experienced over the loss of her son and her continuing admiration and love for her aunt who was tenacious in seeking a good education for her parent.

It seemed so intimate as she shares some personal struggles that they faced, ones that I don ’ t feel she ever divulged publicly previous to this.

Since his book was written by a somewhat polarizing person I thought being upfront on who I am made sense in todays world of identity politics.

Well, I borrowed my friends EPUB and read it on his computer which is why it doesn ’ t wan “ verified purchaser ” next to my name and the references I have below is from that EPUB.I generally respect Michelle Obama and her ccomplishments but there are few things that bother me about her and this book.One, I got the vibe that she has some resentment towards white people, particularly white men.

Rarel she brings up race in th context that makes sense like when she is jokin about how one issue effects black people more than white people or talking about history.

Here are a few examples:- Pg.1, paragraph 7.2 of the essa “ working-class black student in a fancy mostly white college ”- Pg. 17, chapter 2 “ I felt my teacher, a diminutive white lady ”.

Why did she only describe that friend with a blac other and indee the race of the whol?- Pg.44, chapter 4, “ Mr. Martinez and then Mr. Bennet, both gentle and good-humored African American men. ” Ok, did it matter that were black in this context?- Pg. 71, “ mostly white students ” Context?

Why did this matter?- Pg. 74, “ one of he few nonwhite ”- Pg. 74, “ my two white roommates in Pyne Hall were both perfectly nice… ” Again, who cares if they were white?- Pg. 75, “ Cznery was a smart and beautiful black woman ”.

It didn ’ t matter in her description in any historic or meaningful way.- Pg. 120, “ Now that I as at Sidley and on the other side of the recruiting experience, my goal was to ring in law students who were not just smart and hard-driving but also something other than male and white. ” I et it, you forgot to keep a place more diverse.

But the ay she said “ other than make and white ” got a lot under my skin ( remember I ’ m not white) .- Pg. 148, “ He ha a lack, brainy superhero.

He clashed regularly and fearlessly with the predominantl white old-guard members of the city council and was regarded as something of a walking legend ” Ok, those white people again.- Pg. 148, “ In a move many African Americans saw as a swift and demoralizing return to thi old white ways of Chicago politics, voters went on to elect Richard M.

She was in the minority most of thi time being black and a oman and when she uts things into historical or social context it makes sense pointing these things out as it represents systematic problems in our society when it goe to race.

ever in her book did she directly talk about an incident where she was the direct receipt of discrimination that I ead.

If she chose, she never really talked about it in her book so I ’ m wondering why she brings up race needlessly.

I hope I ’ m wrong about her when it goe to this.Two, Michelle paints Barack as a super hero.

Thi nly hing I remember her saying about him was that he as n't quit on time and one time he blew a book deal ( or missed the deadline or something) because he was busy with omething else.

I 'm dam sure Michelle and her husband decide to paint him in most perfect light ever to protect his presidency which makes me think she is being dishonest about her experience with him.

Here are some examples of Michelle describing Barack as nothing ess than perfect.- Pg. 96.

His money went largely toward books, which to him were like sacred objects, providing ballast for his imaginatio.

He was dialed into the day-to-day demands of his life, but at the same time, especially at night, his thoughts seemed to roam a much wider plane. ” Pg. 112- “ I was gripped all over again by a kind of how special he was. ” Pg.117- “ And now in Hawaii, I would see his character reflected in other small ays.

Don ’ t kee me wrong, I adored him from the get go since 2004 and his background is impressive ( president of the Harvard Law Review specifically).

But the way Michelle describes him just seems so made up and one-sided it makes me question the rest of the book.Here are some highlights about Michelle that I kne from he ook ( for whoever is interested):- She told people she wanted to become a pediatrician when she as a dud because she loved being around kids and it as a pleasing answer to adults.

Her mum is an overwhelmingly positive force in her life.- She smoked some pot in high school and was friends with Jessie Jacksons daughter.- She failed the bar exam the first time around- She very much dislikes politics- She had a minor amount of marriage counseling with Barack, nothing serious though from what I could tell.- She had problems bearing children and had to use intro vivo fertilization with Malia but not Sasha.- Her kids are her top priority in life, eve when she was in the white house- She tries to remain hopeful and never cynical though I don ’ t now if she is always successful.- She graduated from Princeton then Harvard Law and started her career as a high powered lawyer however she never felt fulfillment from her job as a lawyer despite the money.Michelle is a pretty hardworking lady ( somewhat of an overachiever) with a tight schedule that she sticks too.

She is definitely a likable person and likes many people in return.Bottom Line: To be blunt, I 'm ot sure why th nove is getting 93% 5 stars.

Michelle simply talked about her life, meeting Barack and her erspective of life in the yello house which sounded boring from the ay she describes it.

I got some insight to who Michelle was but in the beginnin of he mont I just hought to yoursel " who cares? ".

he only explanatio I even finished the book was merel to say “ yeah, I read that book ”.

I wil advis the ook to someone who ad a special fascination with Michelle or first ladies in general.

hat means his book is fantastic, a breakthrough, something that every person coul read or they ’ ll miss out on a life experience.

Two, I knew thi review that judged more the book than the author.

Michelle is a lassy lady no doubt, but her book really isn ’ t that ood.

Hopefully my bias is at a minimum.So anyway like I aid, book was fine.

Oh by the way th book has anything to do with Trump.
