Wow. This was a fascinating book. Mostly I was taken with the idea that this writer/reporter spent so many years tracking down this story. I don't know how she was able to manage her money and time to interview all those relatives of Henrietta Lacks. It's a really provocative story and we had a lively discussion about it at my book group's meeting last month. Unfortunately I had not finished it yet so I kept going with it and I am glad that I did.
