Fun and uplifting
The upbeat, happy tone of it.
Listening to Sissy, it's easy to see her in your mind's eye, growing up in Texas.
The younger days growing up in Quitman. I'm a Texan and grew up in a small town, as well. Her stories brought back alot of good memories for me that I had forgotten.
This book is baby boomer heaven. I could listen to Sissy's lovely, soothing voice and funny stories all day.
I don't think I took a breath the entire time I listened to this book. Never a dull moment. Louis Zamperini is an inspiration for everyone. Whenever I think I have it bad, I'll think back to what this man went through during WW2. Also, this is a fabulous history lesson, I learned things I should have learned in school but don't remember it ever being taught. Thank you, all veterans, for your service!
I really enjoyed this book, lots of interesting information on genetic research and the legal issues surrounding it. I must say, though, that other than Henrietta's sister, the entire Lacks family is totally unlikeable. The narration is top notch. Highly recommend.
