Dreams from My Father

I finally listened to the audiobook Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama. It's really great for the most part, but the last hour and a half is so much about Obama's paternal relatives.

I know more about his relatives than I know about mine. 

That would have been OK, but he ends the book there, with a tiny epilogue. I really wanted to hear about his years in law school and then meeting Michelle and working and going into politics.

Obama is a good mimic and handles impressions of his African relatives, male and female, convincingly.
