For anyone that knows nothing about this book, it’s by author Khaled Hosseini. Who firstly is AMAZING, and secondly, also wrote ‘The Kite Runner’ and ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’.

It’s safe to say that Khaled set his standards pretty high for himself after his first two novels, however, ‘And the Mountains Echoed‘ definitely lived up to these expectations!

The story is about a brother and sister who become separated through heartbreaking circumstances and they endure a harrowing journey throughout their life when they try to find each other. Their lives are intertwined with others from Afghanistan and the story tells a lovely, but sad tale about their the journey they all endure. Not going to lie, I may have shed a tear or two. Or, you know, a hundred tears…

All I can say is that Khaled is a terrific author, and I cannot emphasise his greatness enough. I’m already looking forward to his future novels, and I can safely say that I will be reading every one of them.
