THE PHILADELPHIA CHROMOSOME A Mutant Gene and the Quest to Cure Cancer at the Genetic Level

by | Read by Heather Henderson

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Heather Henderson's vocal projection embodies a level of confidence and certainty that makes Wapner's prose sound even more authoritative. Henderson's deep, warm voice weaves the different elements of this story--technical jargon, anecdotes, interviews, and historical details--into a coherent listening experience that extends the book's value. Wapner traces the medical history of chronic myeloid leukemia and its eventual cure over the course of the last 40 years. Though her prose proves mostly accessible, some of the scientific elements have the potential to lose listeners. But Henderson aids understanding by shifting into more a deliberate and emphatic delivery in these sections. In addition, her character voices are substantively different enough to make clear who is speaking. L.E. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
