And the Mountains Echoed
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 Timesbestselling 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 globefrom Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinosthe story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

2019 #2 -- not my favorite Hosseini novel. The structure failed to consistently reveal and move the story and felt unfocused too often. There were moments that engaged me, then moments where I was disconnected from the story. I don't feel I wasted time on it, but the book left me untouched.

Hosseini stole my heart with his first two books, so I had high expectations for this one. It did not disappoint. From the very first pages, my heart was in it. Fully engaged in this web of characters from beginning to end, I read this book cover to cover in three days. Beautiful language, deep levels of imagery, the darkest and most beautiful parts of the human experience - all wrapped up into this amazing novel.

Such a sad story! A man makes the choice to try and save his family and it has consequences for generations. Told from many different perspectives. Definitely a tear jerker!

#SoaringScores #MistyMountains It‘s been a long time since I read this book, I honestly don‘t remember much😬but I‘m sure tears were shed, it‘s a Hosseini novel so that seems like a given😜 I wish he‘d write a new adult novel already!!!!

This was wonderful. Epic, beautiful but very accessible. Storytelling that hooked me in from the beginning.

I‘ve read all three of Hosseini‘s novels and reckon he might just be a #mustreadauthor for me.

RachelAmphlett I haven‘t read that one yet, but must - I‘ve devoured his other books. 2mo

I love Khaled Hosseini‘s stories. Can‘t control the tears on any of them. This one a beautiful story of siblings lost and found. Never losing hope, but never quite winning either.

Brilliantly shaped characters that show how generations past still affect our today. Khaled is one of my favorite authors but this book takes third to his others - the Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. However, this is still a really amazing book. I think i rate it thrid because I did not quote understand how he wrapped it up in the end but perhaps that's my bad. But really. It's totally awesome and you should check it out! Very moving.

A heartbreaking story of family, life, love, loss & discovery. Starting in Afghanistan the story of a brother & his little sister who are torn apart travels through time to Pakistan, Greece, France & America. Those touched by that moment in time tell their own stories of complicated family lives & how they've been shaped by those experiences. Hosseini writes beautifully & with such feeling, I am yet to be disappointed by one of his books.

I don‘t want this book to end. Finishing this means I have no more Hosseini novels to read. Although, I do have Sea Prayer. I‘m a little more than halfway through. 56% according to goodreads. I‘m so happy my literature class was assigned A Thousand Splendid Suns to read. I may have never picked up one of his books.

quote
Squidonland

Beauty is an enormous, unmerited gift given randomly, stupidly. And so I chose my specialty to even out the odds for people like Thalia, to rectify, with each slice of my scalpel, an arbitrary injustice, to make a small stand against a world order I found disgraceful, one in which a dog bite could rob a little girl of her future, make her an outcast, an object of scorn. At least this is what I tell myself.

quote
Squidonland
And the Mountains Echoed | Khaled Hosseini

(2/2) It feels infinite, insurmountable, and his promise to her misguided, a reckless mistake, a terrible misreading of the measures of his own powers and will and character. Something best forgotten. He isn‘t capableof it. It is that simple.

quote
Squidonland
And the Mountains Echoed | Khaled Hosseini

(1/2) Their connection has frayed. The unexpected intimacy he had stumbled upon in that hospital, so urgent and acute, has eroded into something dull. The experience has lost its power. He recognizes the fierce determination that had seized him for what it really was, an illusion, a mirage. He had fallen under the influence of something like a drug. The distance between him and the girl feels vast now.

quote
Squidonland
And the Mountains Echoed | Khaled Hosseini

I know now that some people feel unhappiness the way others love: privately, intensely, and without recourse.

quote
Squidonland
And the Mountains Echoed | Khaled Hosseini

Father was different. Father had hardness in him. His eyes looked out on the same world as Mother‘s had, and saw only indifference. Endless toil. Father‘s world was unsparing. Nothing good came free. Even love. You paid for all things. And if you were poor, suffering was your currency.

While the writing is still absolutely beautiful and poignant, as Hosseini‘s writing always is, this one fell a bit short for me. Too many characters made it feel disjointed, and I got confused at the beginning of some chapters as to where and with whom the story was now. Wish it had stayed with Abdullah and Pari the whole way through, following them through their lives and finding their way back to each other. Still worth the read, though! 3/5 ⭐️

Recycling an old Litsy pic for this one. This was my first Hosseini and I was BAWLING at the end. If you want a perspective-shifting narrative about family that spans decades, then I recommend this whole-heartedly even though it seems to be the least popular of his 3 novels. 💜

I finally finished reading this book. Though I took a long time, may be it was because of so many characters and their own stories that couldn't keep me as much hooked up to the book as other books generally do, but I still loved it.
