    In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father, a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man, has been killed in a car accident.

    Overall

    Thank you to Mr. Obama for sharing his very interesting life. His descriptions of Hawaii, Indonesia, Chicago and Kenya put you right there. His descriptions of his family make you feel as if you have known them all your life. This audio book was my walking companion for 1 week, I was sad for it to end. I laughed out loud and cried, often on the same walk. Mr. Obama's voice is very charismatic, and I think I could listen to him read my grocery list!

    As a bi-racial woman, born just 2 years before him, it was very affirming to hear about the doubts and questions of "who am I?" I am giving this book to all of my family members as gifts this year (they too have had these questions). Great listen, highly recommend it!
