Today is the official launch of the Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide for Khaled Hosseini’s latest novel, And the Mountains Echoed. Spanning decades, continents, and generations, this novel — from the author of Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns — is a powerfully woven story of the joys, sorrows, sacrifices, and betrayals that both bind and fracture families.
The Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide (60 pages) includes complete coverage of the characters, themes, symbols, and writing style, plus selected quotes from the novel and discussion questions to get your book club or classroom buzzing.
About the novel: And the Mountains Echoed reads much like a series of linked short stories, with each chapter focusing on a primary character who shares a connection, by blood or fate, to the novel’s central tragedy. It all begins in Afghanistan, when three-year-old Pari is separated from her beloved brother Abdullah and sold to a wealthy couple in Kabul. The consequences of this desperate act echo down through the generations, radiating from Afghanistan to France, Greece, and America.
