AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED was the January 2014 pick in my online book club, The Reading Cove.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed.

The narrative lacked the emotional resonance of his first two books, so I wasn't compelled by it. It felt like several short stories were forced to connect after they were written, and not by initial designed. The flow was muddled, anything but cohesive. And there were several boring passages, with a few touching moments throughout.

I can't give this one more than a C, but I'm still buying anything Khaled Hosseini writes -- still a huge fan and will look forward to what he does next!
