A wonderful surprise was waiting for me at home a few days ago, a tightly wrapped package with an ARC of Khaled Hosseini’s (The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns) new book And the Mountains Echoed.
As it happened I just finished reading a book that day and immediately picked this one up (to my beloved wife’s dismay). I’m about 200 pages into it and so far, so good. The novel is made up of interlinked stories which span generations about one Afghan family and those who touched their lives, while not as emotionally draining as The Kite Runner (but really, what is?) the book certainly grabbed my attention and I’m enjoying it very much.
