Book Summary

Broad in scope and setting, wise and compassionate and it's storytelling, and the mountains echoed is a profoundly moving, captivating novel that demonstrates Khaled Hosseini is deeply felt understanding of the bonds that define us and shape our lives and of what it means to be human.

It begins with a heartbreaking, unparalleled bond between two motherless siblings in an Afghan Village. To three-year-old Pari, big brother Abdullah is more mother than brother. To ten-year-old Abdullah, little Pari is his everything. What happens to them and the large and small manners in which it echoes through the lives of so many other people--is proof of the moral complexity of life. In a multi-generational novel revolving around not just parents and children but also brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which family members love, wound, betray, honor, and sacrificed for one another and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the time that matter most.

Propel by the same remarkable instincts and philosophical Insight that made The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns so remarkable, And the Mountains Echoed shows once again that Khaled Hosseini is a born storyteller.
