Some of my more radical friends will say it's not okay to love Michelle Obama, that she's complicit in her husband's deportations and other crimes as US President, but context is everything. Under a Trump administration, where the president is clearly a fascist and sociopath, it is moving to read about how both Obama's strive to make the world better and both experience and display human emotion.
I bookmarked a ton of pages, but I'll just say that I admired much about Obama's story. Still, the ebook was 767 tablet pages, which is a bit long, no matter how engaging a writer she is. And she is a skillful writer, no matter what that bitch Christopher Hitchens said about her Princeton thesis. The first two sections, before the Obamas moved to Washington were more compelling to me, though her telling of Barack Obama's accomplishments were moving. I think if she wrote the book ten years from now, it would be tighter with less to prove, but I completely get wanting to register her feels after so many years of holding them in--always going high because people always went low against Michelle and her family.
Did you know she gave up being a corporate lawyer, in part because she was motivated by Barack's commitment to community improvement, and that her hospital vice presidency was not some muckety muck gig. She was Doing Good.
