Book a Day – And the Mountains Echoed

Book a Day I read because of my reading club – August 2018


I enjoy it when readers from my book club suggest a book by an author I have not read. This way I have a reason to venture out of my reading comfort zone more. And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini was a book we read for May 2016.


I read the Croatian translation and was actually pleased with it. The story was bittersweet as is much of the authors opus as I’ve learned at our meeting. The tale twisting on how our choices affect us and those close to us was something we all agreed was expertly written.


There was much sadness and tragedy in the book but there was hope also. Our thought on the book were mostly positive but some readers who are fans of the author decidedly commented that this was not his most representative work.
