And the Mountains Echoed (Unabridged)

by Khaled Hosseini

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

On May 21, 2013, the new novel from Khaled Hosseini: an unforgettable story about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling 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 passing minute.

Customer Reviews

And The Mountains Echoed

Anyone buying this audiobook deserves a refund! The bulk of the narration is done by two people (one male and one female) who have fairly strong accents. It is difficult to catch on to the storyline because it is necessary to concentrate on interpreting the audio. Overall, it is not a pleasant or relaxing experience.

The initial part of the audiobook (less than 1 h) was done by Khaled Hosseini and is easy to understand. The preview provided on the website is taken from this segment, and to use it as an "example" of the reading is extremely misleading.

At present, I am uncertain as to whether to discontinue my reading and waste $23.95 or struggle with a very unpleasant experience.

Horrible

Starts off with a descent story line, narration not too bad. Chapter two and the remaining chapters......don't waste your time or money. Just plain horrible. If I could take away stars from other reviews I would, but I guess since I have no option I will unwillingly give one star.

Hard to understand

The accent is very strong and requires close attention. The first section is easier to understand but it gets much more difficult after that. I liked Kite Runner, but after this, will not be buying anymore when read by Khaled Hosseini.
