    Story
    (2638)

    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.

    Prisca says: "Amazing Story"
    "Boring, way too long"
    Overall

    Way too long. Too long winded and off track at times. Could have easily been
    cut in half. The author seems to feel a need to be involved in the story as a character. Why I'm not sure. Objective reporting is very important. Stick to the point, which is about the ethics of human research

    Story

    In 2002 in New York City, we encounter the character T Cooper, the last living Lipshitz, who has received an unsolicited box from his estranged mother. In it, he finds clippings and letters to Charles Lindbergh and his family, all once carefully preserved by his great-grandmother Esther.

    Joseph says: "yuck"
    "first part good second part bad"
    Overall

    The first part of this book was of historical interest and the association with Linberg an interesting sideline but really what was the last part of the book about? It was uninteresting and stupid and then to add in a gender bender at the end what was that about?
    Forget the last part it does not add anything to the book.
