And the Mountains Echoed

After reading Hosseini’s previous works, I was very excited to delve into his most recent book, AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED. The story begins with a father telling his young children a fable about a man who is forced to make a difficult decision regarding his family. He makes the agonizing choice to give away his child for the sake of the family. This is the premise of the entire book, and as the story unfolds Hosseini slowly unveils a story about a family that endures the beauty of love, and the agony of loss during a very harsh time in Afghanistan’s history. As always, Hosseini delivers a moving story where the characters are rich, complex and get under your skin. Likewise, the culture and landscape of Afghanistan is yet another facet of the book that creates a wonderful backstory to learn about and enjoy. This is a beautifully written novel, which will provide hours of entertainment. As a book club selection, it would offer many points of discussion.Back.
