September Bookclub - "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini

Due to many requests - let's go ahead and read - "And the Mountains Echoed", by Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns". His new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
(This book will not be available in paperback until next year - but the hard cover is only $14 on Amazon and $11 for Kindle.)

    It looked like an interesting read and hate I missed the comment about lending copies. Maybe next time, I guess I'll have to check back more often.

    I have had a hard time getting this book from the library in time to read it. And I refuse to buy it because finances now are too tight for recreational. I have had a hard time finding books for the last few months that you have posted for us to read. Can we come up with something that might be more common to find.

      Hi! I have just joined this club. If I finish the book early I would be happy to loan it to you. I'm sorry you didn't get to see my previous post sooner.

      I am SO not interested in an all-last-year's-bes­t-sellers group. However, maybe those of us who get a lendable copy could make a point of letting the group know that we have the copy available to lend? Like Terri did on Sept. 5.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
