Review: And the Mountains Echoed
Ever since the publication of The Kite Runner ten years ago, I’ve heard a lot about Khaled Hosseini‘s writing, but somehow have never made the time or the effort to read any of his work and I’m not really sure why. When I was recently offered the opportunity to read his latest book, And the Mountains Echoed, I didn’t hesitate to grab it, and I’m so glad I did. I will definitely be making the time to read Hosseini’s other work after reading this masterpiece.
I’m not going to summarize this book because I went into it knowing nothing and I really think that’s the best way to experience it. I would hate to spoil anything for anyone who has yet to read this marvelous book. Suffice it to say it’s a story of family, love, faith, honor, and sacrifice. It shows how one decision can alter the lives of so many and how guilt can surround you. Hosseini’s writing is gorgeous and immerses the reader in the story – once you pick And the Mountains Echoed up, you won’t want to put it down. I loved this book so much and have been urging everyone I know to read it. It will definitely be one of my favorites of the year – it’s a must read that you’ll want to pick up as soon as you can!
