And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

This multi-generational tale presents a puzzle for the reader to piece together.  Amid love and loss, Khaled Hosseini  tells a big, sprawling story that is tied up at the end.  It’s a hard book to pin down since it has so many characters that at first may seem separate but then gradually their connections become clear. Taking place in America and Europe, Afghanistan is at its heart.   Beautifully written, this book is sure to satisfy the author’s many fans and attract new ones to his work.  Check out Hosseini’s other books, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, too.

This book was reviewed from an advanced reading copy provided by the publisher.  The publication date is May 21, 2013.
