And the Mountains EchoedAnd the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Another heartbreaking story written by Khaled Hosseini.

 

In this book, the author makes use of flashbacks in order to describe the destiny of the main characters – a brother and his sister (Abdullah and Pari) who are torn apart as children by their father – in such a way that there are many stories intertwined which are told in parallel, like a mosaic.

 

As historical background, the story of Afghanistan is told in the last 60 years. The story moves also from Kabul to Paris, to San Francisco and to the Greek Islands.

 

When you finish the book, it is almost impossible to stop thinking about the main characters and their destiny.
