    A Signature Performance: Leelee Sobieski’s Emma is sultry but vulnerable, offering a sympathetic rendering of the heroine and her plight, allowing the listener to draw his own conclusions about Madame Bovary in this cautionary tale of love, passion, and desperation.

    "Narrator sounds like an angry robot"
    Overall

    I am 1/4 of the way through this audiobook. The narrator is just awful. Literally, she sounds like an angry robot and tends to push out and put too much emphasis with the last word of every sentence. This "actress" is an awful narrator. I am shocked that no one coached her how to read. I cannot bear to listen to this book any longer. This book is intolerable to listen to. I know this review sounds over dramatic...... but the narrator has ruined this classic piece of literature. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

    Story
    (2829)

    Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells, taken without her knowledge, became one of the most important tools in medicine. The first immortal human cells grown in culture, they are still alive today, though she has been dead for more than 60 years.

    Overall

    I am so proud to be a scientist as I listened to this story.

    I laughed out loud, I cried out loud.

    What an amazing journey this author has had uncovering the life and family of Henrietta Lax
