So, what is the DOS reading?
And the Mountains Echoed, by Khaled Hosseini
After reading The Kite Runner and one of the most moving pieces of literature ever, A Thousand Splendid Suns, I could not resist reading Hosseini’s newest book, And the Mountains Echoed.
Apart from enjoying the author’s powerful expression, I was drawn because this story is all about family and everyone from the mothers and fathers to the cousins and siblings. It explores how families care for, honour, betray and sacrifice for each other. I thoroughly believe and had had the experience to prove, that the choices we make resonate throughout our family and we are often surprised by the ramifications of those decisions. I have only just started reading this book and I have already “met” a traditional family from Kabul and I am on my way to San Francisco!
