Book Review: And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

And the Mountains EchoedAnd the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Compelling from the start, this poetic novel is an epic saga starting with the lives of a young brother and sister who had a very strong bond. Almost every chapter tells a new tale of a character woven into the original story. Some never meet, some do. All the characters are strong and believable. The reader is enticed to get to know them; their good and bad qualities. Overall, it was gripping, but at times I wanted desperately to get back to another story inside the main story to find out more. It’s cleverly written but I think there were too many stories inside to be as engaged as I would like half way through. I do love Hosseini’s old worldy poetic style of story telling though.
