    Description
    Official Flipkart Review:

    And the Mountains Echoed is a sentimental story, saccharine sweet and does not lose the bigger perspective of the story. The alignment was perfect and illuminated on every single page. The plot is centred on love between siblings. The story is set in Afghanistan and moves around the world in typical Hosseini style, starting in 1952 and spread across fifty years. There is mammoth storytelling in store for the reader. The story begins with a father and his two children traveling from their village across Afghanistan to Kabul, where their father has been promised work. Abdullah and Pari are as close as any siblings. Abdullah is almost a mother to Pari. This should alone tell you that you will cry buckets during the course of the book. Their father has remarried and the journey has been undertaken entirely for a different purpose which will change the course of their lives forever. The sense of family, hope, loss and love run throughout and yes it may sound clich but Hosseini is a master of this. Hosseini takes a folk tale as well and builds his story within it intelligently and with great sensitivity.

    Description:

    Published in the year 2013 And The Mountains Echoed is a fiction novel that revolves around the lives of two siblings and their casual trip to Kabul, which threatens to alter the course of their lives forever.

    Summary Of The Book

    And The Mountains Echoed is set in Afghanistan, in 1952, where Abdullah and his sister reside with their father and foster mother. They seem to have a raw deal in terms of finances, as their father is constantly on a job hunt to make ends meet. One day, their father decided to shift from the small village where they were staying, to Kabul. Abdullahs father tries to prevent Abdullah from coming along, but is unable to do so, due to his son's persistent temperament.

    Abdullah is extremely fond of his sister and would do anything to keep her happy. The two siblings are inseparable and sleep together on their cot with their heads touching. However, the two donot seem to have a clue about the events that are about to take place when they journey from Kabul to other cities and continents. This insignificant journey made by the family dares to alter the course of their lives and those of hundreds of others, through the next 60 years.

    And The Mountains Echoed revolves around the relationships among family members, which are accompanied with honor and sacrifice for one another. This book also delves into the fact that people are often left dumbstruck by the actions of those who matter the most to them. It is explained to the readers that the decisions made by them can resonate through several generations.

    "You want a story and i will give you one"

    This book was a highly anticipated book for me, I preordered it months in advance. I have read both his earlier works and so for me it is certainly his 'least best' of the three.
    I didn't like the way different characters speak in first person and Also because of dealing with so many characters and so many different periods of time, the author is unable to reach out in depth for any of the main characters.
    I found myself skimming paragraphs just to get to...

    The saga of human relations

    Third in the series of some fantastic piece of writing by Hosseini, this book traces the journeys of a brother and sister through years. The plot of the book is slightly crowded at places but the emotional content is par excellence.

    In particular, the character of Nila brings out the paradox between modernity and tradition in the Afghan society. Though the story is set in war ravaged Afghanistan, it relates beautifully to any of the developing countries, including India.

    While the book c...

    Disheartened this time..

    I have read Khaled Hosseini's previous work with intrigue and interest. This time however his book has disappointed me. Truly speaking, the book is completely pointless.

    It begins as an insightful story of a brother and sister in the country of Afghanistan. After a few chapters, it brings in detailed accounts of unnecessary characters and makes the story tiring. Halfway through the book, the story rapidly increases its pace, forgets the main characters and makes the reader wander aimlessly ...

    Bad book. doesnt live upto expectations of his earlier books

    I am devastated and heartbroken, literally as this book doesn't even come near to thousand splendid suns and kite runner. First few pages of the book are rather well written and carved which set your expectations about pari and abdullah ... however beware that your soul is about to shatter into pieces once you cross those well written pages.My frank opinion.. read thousand splendid suns one more time rather than reading this.

    Accent of a spruce narrative chemistry

    It'd skeptically be a gross misnomer if I were to remark on the gravity of this magnum opus. In all likelihood because the folks at The Guardian or The New York Times have, since eternity, champion'd in thus.

    The one thing most would correlate if the book is flipped from cover to cover is that the novel has not one but stark flickers of many an endings, which comprehensively are sewn together in the end. One of the subtle feature which discerns this book to many others. Additionally, this c...

    heartbreak and hope

    Captivating and affecting . . . A masterful and compassionate storyteller, Hosseini traces the traumas and scarring of tyranny, war, crime, lies, and illness in the intricately interconnected, heartbreaking, and transcendent lives of his vibrantly realized characters to create a grand and encompassing tree of life.

    Confused Characters, too many stories in one book. Disappointing.

    Khaled Hosseini, in his first two books "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns" amassed a huge fan following for himself. These books were powerful, packed with emotions and the changing equations of human relations. They touched the hearts of a large number of people, who were saddened and many a times distressed by these stories set in the backdrop of the appalling conditions of Afghanistan. If you have read these books you would surely want to read this one. But you have to brace ...

    There's more to the book, apart from Pari and Abdullah..

    Beautifully written - Khaled style. A sure page-turner.
    It is definitely a must read, very emotional at certain instances.

    The next sentence is a SPOILER!

    It's a story about two siblings - Pari and her older brother Abdullah and how life changes when the two get separated.

    However, the synopsis at the cover page of the book is a little deceptive - it revolves a lot more on other characters as well, not just Pari and Abdullah.

    the book is nowhere in the league with the kite runner and a thousand splendid suns, but is an okay read otherwise. too many characters and too much information make it boring, but otherwise the story is fine
