And the Mountains Echoed is a story about family and connections, about having and loss, about remembering and forgetting. . . It’s amazing.
Khaled Hosseini really did it again with this one. I loved The Kite Runner, enjoyed A Thousand Splendid Suns, and I have to say that And the Mountains Echoed lived up to the author’s fabulous reputation as a writer.
This book should be on your to-read list. And so should his other novels, especially The Kite Runner.
One of my favorite things about this author is how much he reminds me, as an American, that the Afghani people are people, people who need help, who struggle, who are good inside. I’m not saying I didn’t know this before, but based on the news, sometimes it’s easier to forget about all of the innocent people in a country. Hosseini reminds readers of humanity.
