And the mountains echoed by Khaled Hosseini

Mountains Echoed

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.  I’ll meet you there” Rumi, 13th Century.

Really looking forward to discussing this at next week’s book group.  What do you think of the various stories?  Confusing or interlinking?

  1. Really enjoying the book so far. The pattern of the lives of the characters whose stories come together and then separate over a long period of time is intriguing and leaves me wanting to know how their lives ultimately unfold.

  2. I was so caught up in the story of Pari that I didn’t want to leave it, but every time I entered a different story the same thing happened and I became completely caught up in that one. Hosseini is a very clever storyteller.

  3. I loved the book and the insights into Afghan culture and history. Although it adds to the richness, he gives himself a hugely difficult job by including so many different strands of story. To link or not to link? Contrived or messily unfinished? I was irritated by some unlikely co-incidences but the fact I noticed them at all in such a complex novel shows how Hosseini really draws you into to his tale.
