For those ready for a fascinating and challenging read, check out Khaled Hosseini’s And the Mountains Echoed, a sweeping story of love and loss that begins in a small Afghan village in the late 1940s, and continues to affect descendants in the present day, in nations around the world. The challenge is the storytelling style: the main tale goes back and worth in time, while several other shorter vignettes, small tales, are woven in-between. In these, there is always one character who connects to the people and events of the main story of Pari, her brother Abdullah, and the people who drove them apart. I liked this book; readers ready to take their learning to the next level will also.
