And the Mountains Echoed

Khaled Hosseini
An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini And the Mountains Echoed And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled HosseiniI liked this book but I found it a little difficult to follow all the characters at times. Hosseini weaves a complicated fabric of the past and present and how each life has progressed. I would have liked to have known more about the lives of some of the main characters and the one fault of the book is that it seems to jump around a lot from times and places and leaves you somewhat dissatisfied and wanting to know more

Really glad I read And the Mountains Echoed. Hosseini is a good writer, can go a bit overboard with events that are meant to tug at peoples heartstrings, but he greatly improved with this book. It all starts with 1 event, bother and sister are separated at a young age. The book deals with various characters who are effected by this and finally at the end they are reunited. I love the ending, not cheesy where Abdullah can tell who she is right away and not even after she is there a month can he due to his old age and alzheimers. It was a little confusing at times remembering who this person was that was getting chapter because sometimes they were just mentioned in 1 sentence chapters ago or you'l fnd out who they are/how they relate to the siblings being split up in the last chapter. Overall a really good book, I hope Hosseini rights more.
Washington Post review. In novels and life, Khaled Hosseini grapples with his homelands
At the core of the novelist’s artistic and philanthropic work is a grappling with displacement and separation.
