    On November 5, 1942, a U.S. cargo plane slammed into the Greenland ice cap. Four days later, a B-17 on the search-and-rescue mission also crashed. Miraculously, all nine men on the B-17 survived. The U.S. military launched a second daring rescue operation, but the Grumman Duck amphibious plane sent to find the men vanished. In this thrilling adventure, Mitchell Zuckoff offers a spellbinding account of these harrowing crashes and the fate of the survivors and their would-be saviors.

    This is one of the top audio books I have listened to. Both my husband and I loved the story and couldn't wait to get in the car to listen. It was especially interesting as it was non-fiction and a story I had never heard of before. Fascinating and well written. Future motion picture?? I'd see it.

    Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever, and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

    This is an excellent book to travel with. My husband and I take motor home trips and we couldn't stop driving. A little slow to get into and understand but when the light went on, we were off and listening. This story would make a good movie. I could visualize the characters.

    Story

    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
    Would you listen to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks again? Why?

    The history in this novel was unknown to me before. I learned so much, particularly about Hela cells - still being used to this day. A nicely tied together background of the history of informed consent, the consequences of being poor and black in the 1950's, and the medical strides made to date in conquering cancer. If you have a medical background or interest in novels with medical jargon you will love this book. If you have no interest in medicine you will enjoy this book for it's historical significance and moral issues.
