When I was told that the HPB Book Club selection for June and July was And The Mountains Echoed by Khalid Hosseini, I wasn’t exactly excited about it. I read Hosseini’s The Kite Runner earlier this year, and though I thought the writing was beautiful, the plot was so heartbreaking that I found myself forcing my way through it. However, after having read And The Mountains Echoed, I have to admit I was enthralled by the poetic pictures Hosseini’s words painted in my imagination. I also found myself approaching every chapter like a puzzle, trying to see how the chapter fit in with the rest of the book, as each chapter is told from someone else’s perspective. Now, I’m searching for what to read next. If you are like me, and you enjoyed reading And The Mountains Echoed, here are some other books you may like to read next.
