1/The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a well researched book covering a variety of topics, well beyond Henrietta Lacks and Hela cells. I learned a lot and am happy I finally read this book full of information that the average person should know and appreciate. So many injustices, some never corrected, and never will. I wish we were able to know more about Henrietta, but I feel so much as already been taken from her and her family, that maybe it is fitting not to disclose any more. I hope Henrietta and Deborah have found each other.
2/I had to buy this book for one of my classes . However, I felt it was an interesting read and I flew through the pages. There is also a movie you could rent if you wanted to compare and contrast the movie.
3/I recommend this book. It tells the story from Henrietta Lack’s standpoint. How the doctors said she was OK, until she died, having tumors come out all over her body that the doctors never noticed. [Only one tumor turned out to be immortal HeLa cells] But her treatment was shocking. and the story is well told.
