Book Review of And the Mountains Echoed

And the Mountains Echoed
DieHard avatar reviewed on
Helpful Score: 2

There is really no central character in this book as Hosseini interweaves the history of several characters in this story. Every character is flawed but not necessarily unsympathetic which adds some authenticity to the story. Told from different points of view, the novel travels from decade to decade, skipping from both time and place. It was an ok story but I thought it bogged down in several spots and contained far too much navel-gazing. This book as not near as good as his first two. I really wanted to like it more than I did.
