An unforgettable novel 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 sentence.

Hosseini does it again
I did not read the printed version. But I can't imagine that it could beat the audio book.
The voices were so expressive and outstanding.
I cannot think right now, of another book that I would compare And the Mountains Echoed to. It is quite unique in its constant switching from the past to the present, and at times, it took a minute to figure out which character was being featured. However, the overall effect was to weave all the various stories about the characters as children and as adults into a beautiful if not painful saga in which family members experienced loss and reunion, but not in a timely fashion, drastically affecting the outcome. A must read.
I think Pari (spelling?) would be my favourite.
I did all of the above. I laughed, I cried and felt deeply for the characters. The character development was one of the strengths of this book. I had read Mr. Hosseini's two previous books which I absolutely loved. This one was a bit different in its layout and premise.
But it is a triumphant work that I am very glad I read.
