Résumé de l'éditeur

The number-one international best seller - and the Grammy-award winner for best spoken album in 2006.Before Barack Obama became a politician, he was, among other things, a writer. Dreams from My Father is a 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.

Very interesting.

I enjoyed learning about Barack's life story and I was glad it was his voice reading. It wasn't captivating but interesting and occasionally his intonation was a bit much but I did enjoy it. His speech at the end brought tears to my eyes and summed up the achievement of his life with a powerful emotion that I did not feel in his autobiography.
