MOUNTAINS BEYOND MOUNTAINS The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World

by | Read by Paul Michael

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Tracy Kidder's portrait of Dr. Paul Farmer, the Harvard professor who is working to eradicate deadly infectious diseases and concurrent poverty worldwide, is a fascinating one. Trailing Farmer and his associates through Haiti, Peru, and the States, Kidder was witness to Farmer's brilliance, daring, and infuriating habit of being both provocative and right. Paul Michael captures the book's mix of intensity and elaboration beautifully. He offers conversations and the story's many dramas with just the right amount of edge-of-your-seat passion. And by varying his pace and tone, Michael also manages to keep one keenly involved in the interesting, though long, expository passages in which Kidder explores the intersection of medicine and geopolitics today. A very good rendition of an important book. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
