RUNNING FOR MY LIFE One Lost Boy's Journey from the Killing Fields of Sudan to the Olympic Games

by | Read by Brandon Hirsch

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

The story of a former Lost Boy of Sudan is really a journey, one that takes Lopez Lomong from his life as a 6-year-old boy in a refugee camp to a whole new world as a teen in the United States. How he gets to America is an amazing story, but even more amazing are the new wonders and possibilities of his new life here. Brandon Hirsch’s narration focuses on all the emotions of the loquacious Lopez—especially fear, incredulity, and pride. As Lopez—an exceptional athlete and a devout Catholic—writes of his struggles and accomplishments, Hirsch’s narration is always right there with him. As a team, they’re like two runners on an even pace around a track, never breaking stride and waiting for that final kick. M.B. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2012]
