The Los Angeles Times on Khaled Hosseini's "radiant" novel And the Mountains Echoed

"Beautifully written, masterfully crafted... And the Mountains Echoed is painfully sad but also radiant with love... To underscore love's centrality and contingency, Khaled Hosseini closes with an image drawn from a dream: a snapshot of bygone happiness all the more precious in retrospect because we know how fragile it is."

People joins the chorus of raves for And the Mountains Echoed with a 4 star review

“The Kite Runner author’s latest is a moving saga about sacrifice, betrayal, and the power of family. . . . More expansive than The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, the novel spans three generations and includes overlapping tales of expatriates and aid workers, parents and children, doctors and drug lords. Hosseini shows how easy it is for people to brutalize or abandon those they should protect. But his ultimate achievement is demonstrating the power and persistence of family.”—People (4 stars)

“[W]ith his third and most ambitious novel yet, Hosseini makes it clear that he's not ready to rest on his Big Name…. While it hits all the Hosseini sweet spots — nostalgia, devastating details, triumph over the odds — And the Mountains Echoed covers more ground, both geographically and emotionally, than his previous works. It's not until Hosseini makes the novel small again, for the poignant conclusion, that you fully appreciate what he's accomplished.”  To Read More…
