Waiting on Wednesday #4: And the Mountains Echoed, by Khaled Hosseini

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

And the Mountains Echoed

Title: And the Mountains Echoed
Author: Khaled Hosseini
Publication Date: May 21, 2013
Genre: Historical Fiction

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. -Barnes & Noble

I have heard nothing but great things about all of Khaled Hosseini's works. Although I haven't yet read any of his books, I do plan on reading them, and am enthusiastic to start this one as soon as it comes out (in almost two months!).


  1. I read The Kite Runner last year for school and I thought it was brilliant. Every book sucks a little when it's read for school, but even then it was just so smart and thought provoking. I haven't read anything else, but regardless I have high standards for him :)

    I hope you enjoy his books too, whichever one you start to read :)

    My WOW post

    1. I feel the same way about reading books for school, it really does make me enjoy the book less. But if you enjoyed The Kite Runner, even when it was mandatory to be read, then it truly must be a spectacular book.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I haven't heard of this but thanks for sharing!
