Welcome our beloved teachers and students.
Today, the INSPiRE Library, in collaboration with the Book Club, would like to introduce a new book titled: “And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini.
Unrelated stories, timelines, and characters come together in some way to create a complete and overall picture. In And the Mountains Echoed, Afghanistan represents a profound but painful dream. Every character there has the imprint of poverty, and war, which brings suffering and emptiness, ruins people's fates.
A father makes the decision to leave his three-year-old daughter in Kabul with a well-off family. It marked the start of Afghanistan's 60-year history as told by the characters in the latest novel by Khaled Hosseini, an Afghan-American doctor and author as well.
From that single event, the story takes numerous intricate turns of fate over generations and across oceans, taking us all from Kabul to Paris and from San Francisco to the stunning Greek island of Tinos. Khaled Hosseini has written brilliantly about the links that mold individuals and lives, about seemingly insignificant action choices that reverberate over millennia, with knowledge, depth, and compassion.
Warmly invite you all to read along.
