I read this in print and was captivated. I did not know too much about Mr. Obama but thought it looked interesting. It brings to light how human he is and how difficult it is to negotiate the world being bi-racial. The most interesting portion is the last third. It is the story of his journey to learn of his family in Africa. It is told almost completely in story format from his family's perspective. The writing is wonderful too. I was sad to finish it.
After finishing the Da Vinci Code, I was filled with curiosity about the many issues raised regarding the Catholic church, Jesus, etc. This is obviously in defense of what is written in the bible not a critical look at other theories surrounding the existing or, supposed missing gospels. It is interesting but having poor working knowledge of the Bible, I had to listen very closely.
