And the Mountains Echoed - Khaled Hosseini

My say on books is that any book that makes you stop what you are doing to read and stays in your head until you are able to pick up that book again is good. Stories that stay in my head turn out to be my favorite ones. For some reason, until so far, all of Khaled Hosseini's books have had this effect of me: the story sticking to my head - sometimes even for days after I have closed its last page.
"Echoes in the Mountain" was no exception - I devoured it quickly and when all pages were read and finished, the content of these pages stayed in my mind as I tried to figure out the characters, plot, timing and up to the climax of the story.
One of the things that made me love this story so much is where it happens: Afghanistan, Paris and the USA. Three totally different places but yet which the author is able to combine and intertwine so beautifully making it a captivating and heart rendering story. 
Lots of characters, life stories, contrasts, suffering and pain - the truth about life and how we live. 
Glad to say, once again, I was not disappointed. 

Book Review:
An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.
Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a 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.
