And the Mountains Echoed: a novel by the bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Sun s

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: May 2013

Duration: 13 hours 24 minutes


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.

    Hosseini doesn't disappoint! This book was beautifully written. I enjoyed it as much as A Thousand Splendid Sons and Kite Runner. Reads like several short stories that are connected to make a whole story. The narration is beautiful. All the voices represent the characters perfectly. Wonderful!

  • Alexis Paez

    There is something for everyone (man, woman, husband, wife, father, mother, child) in the stories of this book. It tugs at your heart, and plays with your imagination. Slightly less cohesive story than his other books, but definitely left me wanting more.

    Another great book by Khaled Hosseini! Well worth reading! The narration was also well done, with parts read by the author. I highly recommend his other books as well.
