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.

I have read the author's precious two books, Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, and enjoyed each immensely. This book does not live up to the depth of plot and character development of the others- not remotely close. There are different story lines going but are only partially developed and then either rushed through to an end or just abandoned. There was potential for development and it just wasn't realized.
And the Mountains Echoed
After downloading the sample, I purchased this book the same day it was released in iBooks format. Although I'm still reading "A Thousand Splendid Suns," I forged headlong into Mountains Echoed, and what a ride!
I see why it took Hosseini a while to write this book. His words touched my soul so deeply that, at times, I had to put the book down in order to reflect on many of his passages of wisdom and insight. His characters were rich in presence; I could not stop reading!
This was a great read, even better than The Kite Runner. I highly recommend the purchase of this book, and eagerly await Hosseini's next masterpiece.
And The Mountains Echoed
One of his best books yet. I love all the different characters and the way they all end up touching each others lives. Khaled is one of the best writers , I feel like I have been to Afhghanistan every time I read one of your books......
