Lack of authentiveness,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Taschenbuch)
I use to read a lot of biographies but I turned this one down after 1/3 of the book. The topic is immensely interesting with a fascinating story behind it. However, the book made the impression to me that many of the stories or facts are made up. Sentences like "She entered the room when the assistant was eating a tuna sandwich..." just cannot be thoroughly investigated many decades after the incident. Since this left me with the impression that many of the stories are potentially (partly) made up by the author, I quickly lost interest.
