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.

“The moment is brief, barely enough for a flutter of the pulse but long enough for her illusory self to catch up with the reality of the woman gazing back from the shopwindow. It is a little devastating. This is what aging is, she thinks as she follows Isabelle into the store, these random unking moments that catch you when you least expect them“ (231).

A bittersweet story filled with so many little gems of wisdom and perspective. Hosseini brings these stories and emotions to life in the intricately woven lives of all of the characters. dec2021

This book was quite sad the entire time, so it was hard to read because of that. Besides that, I did enjoy it, and I'm a big fan of Hosseini's writing.

This was a good book but it took me longer than I expected to finish it. It didn't draw me in and I'm not sure why.
The story is beautifully written - he is a fantastic storyteller. It takes you all over the world, from Afghanistan to France, USA to Greece. It explores so much - so many aspects of human nature and the history.
It was a good read and it had an unsettling but satisfying ending.

IuliaC I enjoyed this one too 👍 11mo

Glad to have read this book, And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini, that had been on my radar for quite some time after reading his two remarkable and succesful novels, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. Although, I loved those two books, And The Mountains Echoed was my least favorite. It was a little disorienting and there was a feeling of inadequacy right towards the end. 👇

thevagabondlawyer The story had not come full circle as I thought it would be. There were plot lines and characters that I thought were not necessary or did not really matter. The concept of this book was really good but the execution was not what I expected or at least what I hoped to be at par with his other acclaimed books. I hope to read Khaled's future novels. Please write again Mr. Hosseini. 😊👏 1y
MsMelissa I completely agree with this. 1y

For some reason, Hosseini‘s books have never appealed to me. But I ended up with a copy of one at some point, so I thought I‘d give it a try for my #Afghanistan book. It‘s not for me. I find I‘m not at all invested, so I‘m moving on. I have other options on my shelves!

When you match your purple gin spritz (damson and blackberry) to your book!

This was a lovely book, set partly in #afghanistan. Whilst there were difficult parts it was a much easier read than either A Thousand Splendid Suns or The Kite Runner. It is a sweeping tale of families across more than 60 years - I couldn‘t put it down as I really wanted to find out what happened and who was linked to whom.

Lovely!!
Hosseini is such a good storyteller. I enjoyed following all of the different, intersecting storylines in this book.
What‘s so good about his writing is the way he is able to mirror life and people in all of their imperfection, messiness and beauty. He manages to find the poetry within the everyday.
The way things in life turn out or the way sometimes they don‘t, and how we find and make our peace with that.

This was my first Khaled Hosseini and I loved it. I loved the different story strands and though I wish I could have followed them all to their conclusions, incompleteness and messiness in storytelling have always appealed to me as true to life. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I‘ve enjoyed all of Khaled Hosseini‘s books and his ability to story tell. I enjoy the way he demonstrates the realness of Afghan culture through his stories, depicting the struggles, the loss, the change, and the silver lining. This book in particular, is like reading 7 stories all in one. He so eloquently tells the story of multiple characters and ties them together into a beautiful story of hope.

Here‘s my ‘off-the-shelf‘ pile for #readingasia2021. There‘s not as many as it seems, as there are two for Sri Lanka and I‘ll only choose one. (And two for Japan too)

The top one is Reading Lolita in Tehran. I also have a few on Kindle, including Ocean Vuong, Kim IlYoung Born 1982 and The Girl with 7 Names.

#mummysquirrel also has 5 or 6 for me and my library has *the best* travel writing section that I‘ll visit once they re-open.

Amiable I adored “A Suitable Boy” and “And the Mountains Echoed” —great reads! 2y

Khaled Hosseini did a book event at the college where I work when the tagged book came out. Our photographer took this picture.

I‘ve gotten to see lots of great authors at these book events, including Louise Penny, whose books I‘d never read until then, Erik Larsen, Pat Conroy, and Ann Patchett, to name just a few. I always volunteer to help with these and I hope we‘re able to hold events again sometime in the future! #AugustAuthors

This is a bail for me. There doesn't seem to be anything going on 30 pages in. Plus, the dialogue is kind of meh. I don't find myself invested in the characters. Although I really liked A Thousand Splendid Suns, I can't say the same for this, unfortunately. Hopefully, if he writes another book, it'll be better than this.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I love the stories within a story, the narratives from different perspectives, how a single narrative thread runs the course of the novel, yet does not drown the voices of the other characters but uplifts them. And amidst the cacophony of voices, a single verse from a Rumi poem lingers quietly in the background, “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I‘ll meet you there.”

I‘ve read all of Khaled Hosseini‘s books and what in the world happened for this one ?!
I was expecting such a breathtaking story and although the 1/3 of the book is very good, it is just a downhill disaster from there.

Please read the kite runner or 1,000 splendid suns if you want an incredible story.. not this.

I really liked this book but couldn‘t help compare it to the other Hosseini novel I‘ve read (thousand splendid suns) which I preferred. This was definitely a pick, but I found it hard to understand how the overall plot hung together so I thought of it more as a series of loosely connected different scenes. Maybe in print I‘d have kept the characters straighter in my head.

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.

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.
