Books the door to knowledge

I have never read any books of Khaled Hosseini. This is my first book – And the Mountains Echoed. This was recommended by my friend and I loved it the moment I started reading. So far I have read his 3 books and down below I will pen down my thoughts on all the 3 books, which might encourage few to start reading his books or any other they might like; cause for me reading book is like getting lost with the characters and learning great deal from them.

And the Mountains Echoed

by Khaled Hosseini


This is my first book of this author (Khaled Hosseini), that i have started reading.

And until now the book has taken me from the village of Shadbagh to Kabul, States to Kabul and back.

The book unfolds the bond between siblings, cousins, caretaker and his master.
I have loved what i have read….. looking forward how the book unfolds and where will it take me.

A heart touching story, couldn’t take my eyes of the book…. just loved reading it.

What a tragic end…. left my eyes moist.

The first book of Khaled Hosseini I read and such an effect on me…. just waiting to read his next book.


The Kite Runner

by Khaled Hosseini


The Kite Runner….a very famous novel, so got one to read.

Interesting 2nd book of the author.

It’s a heartbreaking saga of father-son relationship, friendship and betrayal, the relation of the boys Amir & Hassan in their younger days, the kite competition and winning it but that day turns out to be a never forgetful day. A turn of event that shatters their lives. The family is forced to flee to America, but no one knows one day Amir must return to Afghanistan under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption.

Line from the book-

“When you kill a man, you steal a life,” Baba said. “You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of  a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. Do you see?”


A Thousand Splendid Suns

by Khaled Hosseini


The story of Mariam & Laila inspires & motivates you, to be strong and never give up. After so much of sorrow, sadness and dejection when both of them find solace in their own way….. then we come to know the true meaning of Life.
