This was the book I have chosen to cross the Atlantic with me; so it went with me to all airports and planes I have been to going and coming back from home. I had started reading this story a while ago, but ended up not finishing it, and put it on hold for a time when I could dedicate all my attention to the reading, as from the beginning I felt the impact of this true story on me. Now I am on the second half of the book and I am impressed not only with the narrative style of Rebecca Skloot, who I had never read before; but mainly with the story, including the story of how/why/when she wrote the book.
I am not sure if I will be able to write a review that will make justice to this book, but before that, I just wanted to highly recommend this book to my readers. It is impressive! I am absolutely loving it.
P.S.: I am also in love with Fry’s English delight, which I had heard parts of the series on BBC 4 and now I bought the audio book. I already heard series 1 three times!! [Well, but with me being Mr Fry's biggest fan that does not surprise anyone or does it?]
