On May 21, 2013, the new novel from Khaled Hosseini: an unforgettable story about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.
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. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globefrom Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinosthe story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each passing minute.

beautifully painted with vivid smells, colours and love. Cleverly woven stories, knitting together towards the end. Enhanced by the authors reading.
I rarely find a book that leaves me with such a feeling of melocoly. This was a wonderfully told story of family, kinship, and loss but still hope for the future. This is a fantastic story.
The author is a wonderful storyteller and I enjoyed the narration as well. I enjoyed this book as much as Hosseini's previous two books. His writing is so poetic and he is masterful at drawing you into each story that is told in this book. Truly enjoyable.
Writers that can bring cultures and histories of faraway places alive are few and far between. This writer brings alive the culture and history of Afghanistan through a series of individual stories that tie together in a beautiful way.
My only complaint is rather my own limited mind. The stories are wonderfully told. I just wish I had known that this novel is actually about several different stories that cross sect only so briefly however so deeply. I am anxious to re-read it know that I understand it. His illustrations are so vivid and moving.
