I heard good things about this book but not being an especial fan of Michele Obama or autobiographies it took a while to pick this up as an audio book. I am really glad that I did. I found the early parts desciribing life before the white house to be the most interesting and relatable. an excellent read or listen for anyone with an open mind.

not as good as other Jemisin books

This was a faster paced story with less well developed characters compared to Jemisons broken earth trilogy or dream blood books. decent but not great. I'd recommend her other works instead.

this was a truly great trilogy with both epic magic and heart wrenching emotional journies. Narrator was quite good as well. there were half a dozen or so glitches in the recording where there were repeats which is sloppy editing by the publisher.
