    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

    Story
    Would you listen to And the Mountains Echoed again? Why?

    Yes, in fact the second it was done I paused, contemplated the tale and restarted the narration.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abdula. He was the cornerstone of integrity and love and yet also perfectly illustrates the main conflicts of the book.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    MaMa


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I couldn't put it down


    Any additional comments?

    I've been to Afganistan - on a mountain journey last year - and am fascinated by the land and its people. This book was incredible. It began with the famous Rumi quote: "Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." The entire novel explores this middle landscape of the powerful human condition. I can't recommend it strongly enough.
