Amazing book. It has it all. Truth. Story. Emotional grip. History. Touched me in all ways. Learned so much. Beautifully written.
terrific book. engaging, revealing and informative. a fascinating story, both.in th3 sense of medical science, and a human story.of the family.
I was told to read this book for class. I was NOT expecting such a riveting, human story filled with twists and turns, joy and sorrows. Skloot does a fantastic job of telling not only the science, but the real lives of the people involved, and what it means to be immortal.
this book combines relative current issues with historical perspectives. interesting and beautiful. best audio book I've listened too
Very enjoyable and moving. I like how the author tries to present both halves of the issue evenly. It was eye opening to find out about current tissue rights. Sometimes the order of information and anecdotes about the family seemed clumsily merged and repetitive, but it's well worth a listen!
This was definitely a story that needed to be told! Enjoyed this book so much!
This was a great book with a great reader and the story is amazing. I highly recommend
Be entertained, open your eyes and heart to this women, her family and how she has changed the world. A vivid reminder of the struggles of Africian Americans and the complications of science and morality.
When she went to the mental hospital and found her sister's photo.
Henrietta Lacks- so real- you felt like you could reach out and touch her.
Yes- I don't think I laughed- but I did cry and it caused me to look up some things on my own.
Awesome book, I hope this author writes more like this.
