Description
Following his stunning and wildly popular novels The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, Khaled Hosseini gives us this unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else—a tale of how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. Through parents and children, 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. He traces his characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices around the globe, from Kabul to Paris, from San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos, and his story becomes more emotionally complex and powerful with each page.

"Beautifully written, masterfully crafted, [this book] spans nearly 60 years of Afghan history as it investigates the consequences of a desperate act that scars two young lives and resonates through many others.... And the Mountains Echoed is painfully sad but also radiant with love: the enduring bond of a brother and sister; the irritable but bedrock connection of cousins; the quiet intimacy of master and servant who become friends; the commitment of a doctor and nurse to war's victims. To underscore love's centrality and contingency, Hosseini closes with an image drawn from a dream: a snapshot of bygone happiness all the more precious in retrospect because we know how fragile it is."—LATimes

"Hosseini delves into the joys, sorrows, and betrayals that alternately bind and fracture families. Once again, Hosseini's lovingly rendered Afghanistan takes center stage, but in this book he extends his examination to encompass how the Afghan identity affects his characters' decisions and lives in unfamiliar environments."—Boston Globe

"I'm not an easy touch when it comes to novels, but Hosseini's new book, And the Mountains Echoed, had tears dropping from my eyes by Page 45.... It's hard to do justice to a novel this rich in a short review. There are a dozen things I still want to say—about the rhyming pairs of characters, the echoing situations, the varied takes on honesty, loneliness, beauty and poverty, the transformation of emotions into physical ailments. Instead, I'll just add this: Send Hosseini up the bestseller list again."—Washington Post
