Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World

Tracy Kidder, adapted for young people by Michael French, read by Lincoln Hoppe. Listening Library, unabridged, six CDs, 7.5 hrs., $35 ISBN 978-0-8041-2167-5
Pulitzer Prize winner Kidder delivers this remarkable account of the life and times of Paul Farmer—a doctor and Harvard professor—who has made it his life’s work to cure highly infectious diseases and help people in the poorest areas of the world. Narrator Lincoln Hoppe offers a steady reading that is slow and subdued. While the source material can be intense at times, Hoppe reads as if listeners won’t fully understand the gravity of the story. The result is a somewhat underwhelming performance of an inspiring tale. Ages 12–up. A Delacorte hardcover. (Apr.)
