  • Michelle told her story with charm, grit, adventurism and several appalling book-tour choices of dress.

    May 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Scrape away the gush and the swaggy fashion, and a fascinating portrait emerged of a rather unhappy and discontented high achiever.

    May 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • With Obama herself as narrator, it's a personal diary -- bereft of tension and short on surprises with a perpetually sunny guide treating you to an intimate but selective tour of her life so far.

    May 13, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The sad, unintended moral of Becoming is that if this country never sees a President Michelle Obama, it is our own fault.

    May 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a slick look at the former first lady, out of the White House and carving out her life post-politics, but it's as polished and smoothed out as a campaign ad. It's a warm latte, delivered to you in your favorite mug.

    May 12, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • If you loved the book, then you're going to love the movie... I found myself watching the film with a big, goofy grin most of the time.
