In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

I like Michelle Obama. A lot. I know this is a hit book. I think it might be a far better read than a listen. I quit after the first two chapters of her monotone rendering of the normal thoughts of most children, read as if they were almost poetic and special.

Sure wouldn’t discourage reading the book. It’s just that the audible version didn’t please me a bit, after the preface made me excited to hear the rest.
