the realism in the telling of the story
the almost expected outcome of this freight train coming at full throttle
excellent characterizations - outstanding performance
The Violent Bear It Away
A good reading adds great value to the story - it is truly a performance
One of the top ten books I have read.
The protagonist and Kat. They both tried so hard to live through the horror and find ways to channel their emotions
The first time he goes home and he tries to comprehend the dichotomy between the horrors on the front and the challenges of those behind the line. This book came out in 1928 yet war continues and young men and women continue to follow in the same emotional and physical footsteps. It is a sad fact that war continues.
The Horror of War
A truly remarkable and compelling history that took place under our noses . This should have been written a very long time ago and should be incorporated into both elementary and high school science curriculum. It ties life together with science. That aside it is one of the most relevant modern books I have ever read. Thank you to Rebecca for her persistence and thank you to the Lacks family for their candor and participation in getting this story on paper. There are so many aspects to this book. A sad human drama , a global mystery and maybe conspiracy is the word. It is a masterful blend of science, history and individual human crisis. Anyone reading this book will be left with an unexpected personal education that just might reset ones basic beliefs as they pertain to life, the social contract , fairness, honesty in how we treat each other and facing the lies we accept as fundamental truths. I think I would be a lesser person if I had never read this book.
Debra meeting her mothers cells in the lab
The authors first visit with the family and with Zachariah were touching and sometimes humorous. The saddest parts were Henrietta's ordeal before her death, Debra and Zachariah's upbringing; discovering Elsie's history and Debra dying
