Community Reviews

Best of Hosseini

Although the Kite Runner was terribly sad, And the Mountains Echoed was uplifting and emotional. There are definitely sad elements to the story, but it focuses more on family, memory, and storytelling around the world. Hosseini's writing is magical and enthralling.

Love it

Two thumbs up.
