Dry as old bones - couldn't finish it,
This review is from: The Obamas: A Mission, A Marriage (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So Obama wins the presidential election - next move the White House. This proves to be a confusing, unsettling time, especially for Michelle as she grapples with the reality of leaving a home she loved to ago and live in a virtual museum.
I think it's fair to say that the Obamas probably had a tougher time settling in to the house, and the role, then any of their predecessors - not least because of who they are, and who they represent. Elected on a wave of euphoria, Obama felt he really could just step into the Oval office and, with a single pen stroke change things. He discovered this was not the case.
I'm afraid this book didn't hold my attention - it's not particularly well written and as dry as old bones, it failed to ignite my interest and I gave up half way through. I've passed it on to my father for his appraisal - if he sees anything different in it I'll add an update.
