Um, so I haven’t finished The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks yet. It’s been difficult for me to get through, to be honest. It doesn’t have enough of a narrative to keep me interested and the first 3/4 of the book is too science-y/ fact-driven for my taste. I have about 40 pages to go and it’s getting a bit more interesting, but I wish it would have picked up earlier in the book so I could have finished by now. When my leisure/ reading time is limited, it’s hard to stick with a book that’s boring me while there are so many other things I could read.
All this is to say, I’m sorry! I can’t really lead a book club discussion on this one. But those of you who have read the book, please feel free to pose some discussion questions or comment on what stood out to you.
Fortunately, I’m very excited about next month’s book club selection, “This is Where I Leave You,” and I’m positive we’ll have a great discussion about it at the end of April. You can buy the paperback version of This is Where I Leave You here, and the kindle version here.
