“And The Mountains Echoed”,is the third novel of Khaled Hosseini.He was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. In 1980 he moved to United States.
It is a story of a poverty stricken family,their need for financial support, separates them from one loving member.
The story takes place in Sadbagh,Kabul, San Francisco ,Paris and the Greek island of Tinos.
The characters are: Pari , Abdullah, Saboor, Parwana, Nabi, Mr. And Mrs. Wahdati.
Pari and Abdullah are the daughter and son of Saboor, Parwana is the stepmother of Pari and Abdullah, Nabi is the uncle of Pari and Abdullah and the brother of Parwana, Mr.and Mrs. Wahdati are Nabi’s boss.
The most important part in the story is Pari is given up for adoption.
While I was reading the book,I wondered if Pari and Abdullah will be reunited. When they were little they promised to live together forever.They were separated when they were very young. I was pleased when they finally saw each other.
Khaled Hosseini’s purpose I think is to show how poverty makes one completely helpless.
He is a very skillful story writer. He has a unique way of describing the people and places in his stories,it helps the reader to imagine what the people and the places are like by his written representation.
