Book Review: Mountains beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. (Book Review Sample)


Pick a book to read about Haiti. Suggestions include anything written about Haiti by Paul Farmer, Mountains beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. I would even let you read Teach Yourself Haitian Creole by Yeral E. Ogando or Creole Made Easy by Wally R. Turnbull.
Using APA format, write a book report. The book report should include:
Why you chose this book?
From what point of view is the book written?
Do you agree or disagree with the author’s point of view?
What is the author’s thesis or “common thread”?
Is there footnotes? Additional information? Do they clarify or extend points made in the text?
What sources did the author use? [ Primary? Secondary?]
What did you learn about Haiti?
attached part of book last few pages not there
How did that change the perspective you had before reading the book?
Be sure to include title, author, publication date, edition, number of pages
Start with an introduction and end with a conclusion
Your conclusion should summarize, perhaps include a final assessment. Do not introduce new material at this point.
Try to keep it to two pages, if possible. You don't need a reference page because the book's reference will be in your paper somewhere.

Book Review: Mountains beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder.
I am an avid reader of fiction stories, even though I often find time to read non-fiction stories. I have heard about low living standards in Haiti and also read news articles about the country. I have heard of Tracy Kidder's work about Haiti, but I have never had time to read the book. When I read that I was free to choose any book to read, I scrolled through the readings Kidder's book Mountains Beyond Mountains drew my attention. This report summarizes what I found in the book and how my reading of the text maximized my understanding of Haiti.
