    I read this book two years ago and loved it. I was looking for my review and found I hadnt registered it or written anything to remind me about the book, so here is a brief memory. The book starts with a scary bedtime story told to children and that story reverberates throughout the book in a tense, yet gentle way. A child has to be sacrificed so the family can live. Which child? There are many tales like this, worldwide, about giving up one life so others can live theirs. In this book you follo I read this book two years ago and loved it.

In this book you follow the lives of the family wondering who is really the one who was/is the victim.... maybe none? Read it as it weaves through time and place, propelling you to a satisfying ending.

    Hosseini can spin a melodramatic tale and paint vivid descriptive imagery; however, this convoluted non-linear confusing saga is held together by only the barest connective threads of individual angst, torment and suffering with just the briefest blushes of too little, too late relief. Instead of this unwieldy 400+ page saga, Echoes would have made a marvelous children's pop-up book (about sacrifice). Now, that--succinct, powerful and brilliant!

    Hosseini is a marvelous storyteller, and he weaves the threads of many different lives into a coherent thread. A book about Afghans, containing much of the pain of the country's recent history, but very much infused with love and caring. Not always easy to read, containing some characters that seemed particularly peripheral to me (Mr. Markos in particular), it nevertheless succeeds brilliantly as a terrific story.

    It is a great story, like all the other books of Khaled Hosseini about the real life in Afghanistan. However, I liked the other books, written by Khaled Hosseini, more. Nevertheless, a fascinating story which made me think about the amazing possibilities we have here in the Western world

    Very well written. Enjoyed the story very much. The main reason I enjoy his books is because all we get is American News. And these stories open us to the true worlds that exist in Afghanistan.

I so wish I could have remained in love with this novel.

    Well, I'm up to p. 167 of 402, and it has felt like an uphill climb most of the way. I'm going to grit my teeth and finish this book, because that's simply how I'm wired and mainly because I trust my elder daughter, Sara, who liked the book. I am having a tough time, because nothing has captured me in the way of story, character, plot, or descriptively depcted settings. Sorry not to have anything better to say so far other than to whine about how I'd really rather be reading something else from Well, I'm up to p. 167 of 402, and it has felt like an uphill climb most of the way.

    Khaled Hosseini has traditionally been able usually been able to paint a mesmerizing and serene picture of Afghanistan in his other works, so much so that he makes you marvel its people and the country altogether. However, Hosseini seems to lose the art as we go deep into the story. One has to appreciate the easy-flowing nature of Hosseini's story-telling as he describes the delicate childhood days of the protagonist Pari and her elder brother, Abdullah. But it soon begins to spiral out of hand Khaled Hosseini has traditionally been able usually been able to paint a mesmerizing and serene picture of Afghanistan in his other works, so much so that he makes you marvel its people and the country altogether.

One has to appreciate the easy-flowing nature of Hosseini's story-telling as he describes the delicate childhood days of the protagonist Pari and her elder brother, Abdullah. But it soon begins to spiral out of hand as the author attempts to introduce and describe new characters into the plot. Hosseini seems to get caught in his own web as he tries to dwell deep into other character such as Pari's uncle Nabi, his love ambition Nina Wahdati and others such as Markos, Thalia, etc leaving readers wanting about the details of their inter-connection. Overall, a good read but short of Hossaini's other efforts.

    When I took up this book, I was expecting an emotional roller coaster ride just like Hosseini's other books. To certain extent, I did get some of it through ATME. However, the book meandered from the main characters a lot and precious pages were spent on detailing the lives of side characters. This led to some sort of a lack of connect that you generally do not feel with the characters in Hoesseini's books. It appeared more of a collection of loosely connected short stories rather than one tight When I took up this book, I was expecting an emotional roller coaster ride just like Hosseini's other books.

    I've always loved the books written by Khaled Hosseini and I was really looking forward to reading this new book he wrote. I was a bit disappointed because it wasn't as interesting as the last two books he wrote. Too many characters and stories that it was hard for me to connect to the characters. All in all, it was still a good book and I feel like it didn't waste my time reading it. I just wish the characters have longer stories.

    I was very impressed with khaled s previous two books and went on to read this book. But was disappointed with the storyline. I was expecting to read more about what happened to Abdullah and Park after they split. But very little was mentioned about that. There are few irrelevant stories in the book, it is more like a collection of short stories. When one character catches your attention, the story ends abruptly. Also disappointed with the climax.

    I did not enjoy this novel as much as the first two by this author. He kept changing the scenery so to speak. In one chapter it would be about one character and just as you were getting interested in that character, he suddenly changes to another in another location. These changes went on all through the novel until sometimes I did not know where I was and how these people were all going to hook up in the end. The author managed to tie all the threads together by the end but I was one confused r I did not enjoy this novel as much as the first two by this author. He kept changing the scenery so to speak.

    A series of interlinked partial life stories starting with the adoption by a wealthy woman of a young girl from a family of poor Afghan villagers. Spanning four continents and several decades, this is a beautifully written novel of loss, love and self-sacrifice. In the background is the tragic history of modern Afghanistan. I thoroughly recommend the book.

    This is the life story of a brother and sister who start their lives in Afghanistan, and whose lives often left them with wrenching losses. We see them, and the others in their lives, mostly doing the best they can as well-intentioned humans. My only reservation (which is minor) is that the transitions between characters and times are sometimes confusing. I found it a worthwhile book.

    I love Khaled Hosseini, I love his writing and the way he makes you feel towards ideas you may not personally approve of... but I just feel there was too many stories to comprehend, and sometime I get to attached to the characters and I don't want to move on, I felt that some stories still needed more closure. But I still recommend it greatly... Hosseini's books cannot be left unread.

    Overall, everyone thoroughly enjoyed "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini. While the group found the story informative and engaging, the only minor criticism was an occasional confusion on the geographic location of the various inter-lapping stories. A definite recommendation. Overall, everyone thoroughly enjoyed "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini.

    THIS IS A WONDERFUL BOOK - and it's a good thing because, when it sounded familiar, I checked and found that I had another copy of it on my Kindle, and I had read it 7 months ago! But it is so wonderfully written, I just might read it again (but this time, I won't bother to repurchase!)

    Ive read his other books and unfortunately, this one is not a page turner.. It's more an observation of a series of character's lives without a clear intent. Lacked punch and I found myself looking forward to the book ending. Ive read his other books and unfortunately, this one is not a page turner..

    At least the characters were more multidimensional/nuanced than in "A Thousand Splendid Suns." Yet the multiple loosely connected plotlines were more disorienting than enthralling, and left me feeling none too much for any of the numerous scattered characters.
