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 loved this book! Michelle Obama is so honest with her story. I love learning about her childhood, her college years, meeting Barack Obama, and living in the White House. I related so much to Michelle Obama's need to please others, to be the best in school, and to check boxes in her life. I related to her deciding to pick a job that everybody says is great like ' oh you're going to be a doctor' or 'you're going to be a lawyer' and then to become a lawyer and realize it is not the job for you. I also love the story of how she fell in love with a guy who who she thought would do one kind of job and then ended up a politician. So in the end, she became a politician's wife, not something she ever wanted to be. I also love her strive to improve her community and in the end to improve our country, as well.

Abby Davis isn't wearing a skimpy bikini or sipping umbrella drinks, not when she's busy chasing around four little ones. And Matt McKinney isn't looking for fun - he's a Navy SEAL, a grown man with a long list of missions and fallen brothers. Abby has brought her children to this beach to start over, to give them the enjoyable memories they deserve. Matt has been sidelined by a combat injury, and he is haunted by the loss of his best friend and the promise he made: to remain a SEAL - focused and dedicated.

Matt is everyone woman's dream come true! A Navy seal who loves playing with children and loves their mother fiercely was just so sweet to listen to.

Falling in love with her boss's handsome millionaire neighbor was easy for young Emma Copeland. Despite the vast differences between them, and a past that's left Connor Sinclair reclusive and wary, Emma gambles her heart on a desire that rocks them both. But there's something Connor doesn't know: Emma is responsible for an accident that changed his life forever.

Struggled to finish. Hated the characters...too one dimensional. The story drags on. Characters repeat the same thoughts every chapter. Narrator reads the male lead like an old man and the female character as young girl.

Kerra Bailey is a television journalist on the rise, and she's hot on the trail of a story guaranteed to skyrocket her career to even greater heights: an interview with the legendary Major Trapper. Twenty-five years ago, the major emerged a hero from the bombing of the Pegasus Hotel in downtown Dallas when he was photographed leading a handful of survivors out of the collapsing building. The iconic picture transformed him into a beloved national icon, in constant demand for speeches and interviews - until he suddenly dropped out of the public eye.

The characters in this story were hard to like. The story was slow paced, boring and fairly predictable.

Here at Audible, we know just how much of an impact a voice can have on a story - taking simple words and filling them with elation, wonderment, tragedy, or pure satisfaction. We rely on our narrators every day to bring our favorite stories and characters to life - to introduce us to new authors and genres, or even to a new (perhaps longer) commute. And though our narrators are the best story tellers in the business, it's usually someone else's that they're telling.
