I don’t even know where to start with this one. I thought the book was great. And that the Lacks family is, to quote Smoochy, “slap-ass crazy.”
I should’ve written this post when I finished the book – back in early January. But since I didn’t…. Jump in and tell me what you thought about Henrietta, her immortal cells, and her family’s quest for truth and knowledge.
Oh, I do remember one question I wanted to pose…are you surprised at the lack of control we have over our “discarded tissue?” The fact that someone could use and profit from my cells once I voluntarily dispose of them blows my mind.
Okay, carry on!
