Even though she resides in the top .001% of wealth, power and celebrity, Ms. Obama never lets us forget the deep personal pain of growing up in a middle-class, two-parent household and receiving one of the finest educations the world can offer. She gives the reader the impression she's felt most of her life people saw her a large unattractive woman, because so many address her "Sir".
The most interesting parts of the generally boring ramblings were about the Fame and Fortune of White House Years, when America dressed her in the finest, and kissed her feet as their Queen. Mrs. Obama tells of her overwhelming feeling of apprehension to take all those wonderful royal, incredibly luxurious, taxpayer-paid vacations, vacations sometime under the guise of education, that along with moms Robinson and daughters Sushi and Malaria, cost the us millions of dollars. But, because she is was elected queen of all America, she considers that cost her just due. She bravely confesses to us her mother being “a little bit” wary about her effeminate future son-in-law being part cracker, a product of a white mom and black dad. But she tells us that apprehension was finally wiped away while kicked back collecting a pension and living in her own apartment with antique four-poster bed and sitting area on the third floor of the White House, living large at the taxpayer expense.
The most touching parts of Mrs. Obamas memoirs tells us one of her warmest memories as First Lady was while a lengthy taxpayer funded vacation in Europe she was honored by the city of Milan and Italian Government with a sculpture done in her honor, 'The Grosso Culo', capturing in stone the very essence of America's First lady. Mrs. Obama also devotes a chapter of thoughts on her devoted love of Charity work and another on memories of her many requested Television appearances, and a non-blockbuster movie of her budding bromance with a young Barack.
All in all, The Prestigious Middle Finger Book Review gives Michelle Obama's Memoir "Becoming" 2 of 7 Stars. It's printed on really nice quality paper and is quite hefty for it's size, so if you happen to receive a copy as a gift this holiday season, it will make an excellent doorstop and the cover image should help keep rodents at bay. ~T.M.
