Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.

Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling 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 globe — from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos — the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

Review:

"Like [Hosseini's] previous books, the new novel is a complex mosaic, a portrait of the Afghan diaspora as it is folded into the West and of those left behind....The book is elevated by a strong sense of parable and some finely drawn characters and is inventively constructed as it leaps from voice to voice." Esquire

Review:

"A book we can't wait for in 2013... [Hosseini] broadens the scope with a multigenerational family saga that takes place in locations around the world." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"Hosseini returns with an instantly relatable novel that follows generations of a troubled family across the Middle East." Marie Claire

Review:

"The beautiful writing, full of universal truths of loss and identity, makes each section a jewel...Hosseini's eye for detail and emotional geography makes this a haunting read." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Captivating and affecting....A masterful and compassionate storyteller, Hosseini traces the traumas and scarring of tyranny, war, crime, lies, and illness in the intricately interconnected, heartbreaking, and transcendent lives of his vibrantly realized characters to create a grand and encompassing tree of life." Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"Hosseini weaves a gorgeous tapestry of disparate characters joined by threads of blood and fate....In this uplifting and deeply satisfying book, Hosseini displays an optimism not so obvious in his previous works. Readers will be clamoring for it." Library Journal (starred review)

Review:

"In And the Mountains Echoed, Khaled Hosseini presents a multitude of windows into the souls affected by these events. The novel's rich kaleidoscope of images coalesces around one theme: the powerful and often excruciating legacy of family ties within the maelstrom of history." Shelf Awareness

Review:

"Fiction Top Pick....Engrossing....Ultimately, And the Mountains Echoed is about the human endeavor to transcend difference." Bookpage
