Barack Obama's memoir, written long before his political career began, is a remarkable story of one man's search for his identity.The son of a black African father and a white American mother, Obama was only two years old when his father walked out on the family. Many years later, Obama receives a phone call from Nairobi: his father is dead. This sudden news inspires an emotional odyssey for Obama, determined to learn the truth of his father's life and reconcile his divided inheritance.Written at the age of thirty-three, "Dreams from my Father" is an unforgettable read. It illuminates not only Obama's journey, but also our universal desire to understand our history, and what makes us the people we are.

 An insight to who could be the next president of the USA

Barack Obama's reflections of his life leading from his childhood in Hawaii, working as an organiser in Chicago, to meeting his fathers family in Kenya offers an excellent insight into who could be the next president of the USA. His writing is engaging and thoughtful and completely opposes our perceptions of who an American president is. A must read for those wishing to understand a bit more about the man who could potentially be the most powerful person in the world.

 A powerful read, I read the book in just a few days

A must read for anyone and everyone even if you are not a Barack supporter. This is not just a book about Barack's stepping stones into politics, it's also a story representative of many black and mixed race people growing up in a white world. The book is so well and fluidly written it could be a novel rather than a memoir. If you commute on the train to work, get this book, it will make the time fly before you know it.

 Heart Warming and epic and terrific novel!

This is nothing short of an extraordinary piece of work. Obama tells the story of his early life in a heart warming and epic tale, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, gripping, honest and one that reflects on the mistakes of the past while although not telling us how the story ends leaves the reader fulfilled and satisfied.

Put political views aside this isn't a book about politics, just a truly beautifully written novel about the story of a black African man in modern day America dealing with some of the many issues that plague us all.

 Excellent
