    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.

    Tony says: "THE SUM OF THE PARTS"
    "Soppy melodrama"

    Performance
    Story
    Would you try another book from Khaled Hosseini and/or the narrators?

    no thanks - I've read 2 of his books now. Stories of people behaving badly towards other people. I find the situations and conversations to be contrived. The stories are supposed to be heart rendering I suppose, but I find them predictable and melodramatic.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    His accent was kind of cute, but got annoying as the story dragged on.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I did a lot of groaning and eye rolling while repeating "Oh brother". Something like watching a Matthew McConaughey movie.
