    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.

    FanB14 says: "Does the End Justify the Means"

    Story
    If you could sum up And the Mountains Echoed in three words, what would they be?

    work of Art


    What did you like best about this story?

    structure of book, narration, poignancy of story


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chauffeur's story


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    thought it wonderful; brought lump to my throat several times


    Any additional comments?

    be patient with the narration, let the accented English wash over you. this book would have had much less impact simply read in written form: it was so much more beautiful, musical, and authentic read in native Afghani accents. take note of characters' names as you meet them, no matter how inconsequential a character may seem at the time; they will probably reappear later and you will have to recall their story. it might be helpful to write down names as you meet people.
    this book was an absolute treasure-and this from someone who adored Hosseini's first two novels. A Thousand Splendid Suns was one of my favorite books ever.
