And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

* Picture from Amazon*

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Contemporary

Rating: 6 out of 10

Plot: Abdullah is separated from his beloved sister Pari. This book is about their lives and the lives of those around them as a result of the decision to separate the two of them.

Opinion: I loved Khaled Hosseini’s other two books and was really disappointed with this one.  I thought that instead of focusing on the story of Abdullah and Pari, each chapter focused on different characters, and I felt that a lot of the chapters were more of a distraction from the central story.  Also, a lot of the chapters would be from the point of view of characters not even previously mentioned, so it was hard to figure out who was who.  The story was so confusing at parts that I considered not finishing this book because I was just getting tired of trying to figure out who the characters were and what was the point of their side stories.  I was also disappointed in the ending, which I felt didn’t come to a real conclusion, and kind of just left me hanging.

Next book: A Feast For Crows by George R.R. Martin
