The Obamas Book Review and Giveaway 3/27

 ~The Obamas~
{By~Jodi Kantor}
When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with his wife Michelle. Contrary to her fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible.


Then they moved in.


In the Obamas, Jodi Kantor takes us deep inside the White House as they try to grapple with their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and figure out what it means to be the first black President and First Lady. Filled with riveting detail and insight into their partnership, emotions and personalities, and written with a keen eye for the ironies of public life, THE OBAMAS is an intimate portrait that will surprise even readers who thought they knew the President and First Lady.

My Review~
I thought that this book was a great read. Not sure if I believe everything that I read but it was interesting. As when I was reading the book I felt that I was meeting the Obamas. I have always admired Michelle and this just made me love her more. We all know that no marriage is perfect and being in the White House makes things more difficult.  If you like the Obamas or not I think that you will enjoy this book.
