Loved this book! Hosseini writes such beautiful yet tragic novels. A definite 4 out of 4, but I would have to give higher praise to A Thousand Splendid Suns.

The cultural exposure to a world so different than our own is probably my favorite aspect of "And the Mountains Echoed". Watching the siblings grow and be separated was heart wrenching. Seeing their lives later on opened up unexpected emotions.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.
Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

For those who loved the KiteRunner and the Suns, this book will be worth the read. Unfortunately as many pointed out it is a bit of a mental gym, trying to piece the bits together. All the sub-stories are beautiful in themselves, the twin sisters, the strange relationship between the men, but it is the pulling together of the sub-stories which is the wonder of Hosseini! Hungry for the next book!

I enjoyed the book. But it was not as good as his previous works, especially in terms of character development and plot execution. My favourite is "A Thousand Splendid Suns".
