Book Review – Hosseini’s ‘And the Mountains Echoed’ brings new tears

My main goal in reading Khaled Hosseini’s new book, “And the Mountains Echoed,” was to avoid crying. I failed within the first 20 pages. And by the last page, I was bawling.

So, yes, much like Hosseini’s earlier works, “The Kite Runner” and “A Thousand Splendid Suns,” his latest book is bathed in sadness and despair, with the requisite occasional ray of hope. Much like those other two books, “And the Mountains Echoed” is powerful and haunting. And much like the country it describes, it is not easy to forget.

Hosseini, whose previous books have sold tens of millions of copies, approached his latest novel in a stylistically different manner than “The Kite Runner” and “A Thousand Splendid Suns.”
