Yes, I would listen again because histoical facts and subject matter are such that a second listening will help understanding some of the finer details of the story.
I loved the balance of the two stories: the scientific advancements made with the discussion of ethical practices against the story of Henrietta Lacks and her family. Each story by themselves would not have been nearly as interesting without the other. There was a sort of yin and yang that made the book so engaging.
Their narration was so spot on and easy to listen to.
1.Henrietta watching her young children play from her hospital window, and
2. When Debra struggled through horrendous abuse (with her father's consent), her aunt provided the strength and guidance- without her aunt, how could she have survived it? I admired her greatly.
One of the very best audio book I have ever listened to.
