MOUNTAINS BEYOND MOUNTAINS (ADAPTED FOR YOUNG PEOPLE) The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, A Man Who Would Cure the World

by | Read by Lincoln Hoppe

Young Adult Young Adult • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Kidder recounts the transformative story of Paul Farmer, a Massachusetts doctor whose work in Haiti, Peru, and Russia influenced world health policy, especially for the poor. Farmer’s charismatic personality looms large as he advocates tirelessly for a “preferential option” for the poor in many matters of need. Farmer emerges as a selfless advocate for humanity’s most vulnerable. Narrator Lincoln Hoppe’s slow, matter-of-fact style allows listeners to absorb the complex text. His neutral tone also makes it easier to hear upsetting subject matter. On the other hand, his slow pace makes his reading sound stiff, and he does not project the inherent drama of Farmer’s aspirations. In sum, Hoppe’s narration makes for an understated delivery of a powerful story. C.A. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
