And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

As mentioned in my post of earlier today, I will be ramping up my reviews with all the time I have on my hands.

This particular book came as a surprise because it turns out I had read it earlier, there was a nagging in the periphery of  my memory that I might have already read the book but I stil persisted . This was a relatively new experience where I did not remember the story before it unfolded. Therefore I am treating it as a whole new read (especially since I had not already rated it on Goodreads).

If you are familiar with his other works, you would know what to expect with this book. It does not have the whole punch of the previous works but is still an extremely well told story.

This story comprises of the passage of time through disjointed lives which flow parallelly , some more important to the tale than others. Lives are disrupted by poverty and war and some relations are partially mended. Some people cross paths with others we find the significance of later. There is a slight feeling of lack of resolution ( it is most probably just my problem) hence the lower rating despite this being a great book.
