    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.

    Story
    Where does The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the more intriguing books, and ideal for audio listening since the concepts were deep and I could re-wind and even have my husband sit in the chapters about the science and legal history. Fun and very intriguing book, with a lot to chew on. You could read it over and over again and still learn!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, way to thick and thought provoking!

    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definately, and to children who are age appropriate. I think my son's high school class is reading it for school. It's a very nice way to introduce the 9/11 issues and human nature, as well as other tragedies of war and socieities.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way the author mingled the stories of the wars together and the passion the son had for his father was so obvious and well, I liked a lot of things!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was too enjoyable to listen to quickly...I liked savoring it and then I rented the movie and enjoyed that as well.
