Fact is Stranger than Fiction. This book proves that. It sounds like Jurassic Park or Outbreak, but it really happened.
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.

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.
I really loved that the author incorporated the story of Henrietta as well as the history of her cells and genetics.
This is definitely a book I will listen to again!
I don't usually choose to listen to non fiction, but this is a great story with a lot of history. The story was very personal and interesting. I really liked the narrator's voice and the flow of the story.
Important read especially for those unfamiliar with the world of bioethics. Worth checking it out.
This book is better than a novel and WAY better than a science book. I'm both a better human and more sensitive, intelligent person for having listened to it. Thank you to the author, narrator, and of course, the Lacks family.
A very important work on so many crucial issues of humanity and science. A brilliant listening experience. I hadn't expected this book to enthrall me as it did
Congratulations and thanks to Rebecca Skloot
