And the Mountains Echoed Khaled Hosseini Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.
Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling 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 globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

User reviews about this book
And The Mountains Echoed
The first 2/3 of this book was outstanding! The characters and settings were very well developed. About 15 times I was brought to pause and reflect on the words the writer had just written.
Then all of a sudden everything became rushed! The dialogue the setting the character changes many times I didn’t even know who was speaking! Terrible and frustrating! I loved the Kite Runner and A thousand splendid Suns, both deserving of five star review. This book I’ve only given one star it just left me feeling so frustrated.
The kite runner
By Harmonic Lion
I came across this book after having read the author's first two. The second was better than the first, and this one was better than the previous one. The characters have such depth and rich backgrounds. They compliment the main storyline and make for a beautiful woven piece of art. This is by far the best book I've read in a long while.
I am a huge Khaled Hosseini fan! I have read all his books, he is an amazing story teller. His writing in "And The Mountains Echoed" is beautiful and heart wrenching.
Irrelevant characters, irrelevant information, obvious missed connections left unaddressed.
Thousand Splendid Suns
By Merry Jerry
Outstanding story thoroughly engrossing, emotionally attractive a compelling read.
Confused about half way in
By Long legion
While I enjoyed the book, I don't believe it was up to the standard of his other two novels. I got lost about half way in when the first person protagonist changed several times and I couldn't keep up with "who" was talking
So much beauty
I am by all means obsessed with Khaled Hosseini. I love what he stands for and love that he brings awareness to the middle eastern cultures while highlighting it's beauty. Read this book. It's just as lovely as the others.
And the Mountain Echoed
I was so excited to read another novel by Khaled Hosseini. This book started off amazing but then nearly fizzled out. Unlike "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns," which brought out nearly every emotion in me, I wasn't as moved with this book and I felt less invested in the characters. Both Hosseini's previous novels are a tough act to follow, so maybe my expectations were high. Overall this book was pretty good.
