Publisher Description

Before Barack Obama became a politician he was, among other things, a writer. Dreams from My Father is his masterpiece: a refreshing, revealing portrait of a young man asking the big questions about identity and belonging.

The son of a black African father and a white American mother, Obama recounts an emotional odyssey. He retraces the migration of his mother’s family from Kansas to Hawaii, then to his childhood home in Indonesia. Finally he travels to Kenya, where he confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.

A Good Listen Written and Read

This was an enjoyable engaging book to listen to and whilst reading might give better retention the experience was both enjoyable and thought provoking. It is both a human story and a consideration of ideas. Sometimes it went a bit long and occasionally rubbed wrongly against my views on the use of and power of religion, political organisation (though enlightening but mercenary) and too much faith in market forces.
