The Book Reporter, our in-house guide to what makes for an interesting read, reviews Hosseini's latest bestseller, And the Mountains Echoed.
Khaled Hosseini is a brilliant author. I was hooked from the first few pages. His characterization is vivid and his storytelling skills are par excellence!! This is a story of love and how it has the power to affect lives over many generations. It teaches us deep gratitude for the simplest things we have. Hosseini has this ability to tell stories like none other. For days after reading this I had the characters in my mind.
Yes Afghani references are many, but not as heart wrenching as his other books.
If you've liked his previous work you're sure to love this!! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Leaving you with a beautiful quote from the book:
“They say, find a purpose in your life and live it. But, sometimes, it is only after you have lived that you recognize your life had a purpose, and likely one you never had in mind.”
