The objective of this thesis is to review the book ‘And the mountains echoed’ by Khaled Hosseini. This thesis will deal with the characters and the emotions they portray throughout the book. The book was published in 2013 and received a favourable response overall. It later on became a bestseller like the author’s other two books: ‘The kite runner’ and ‘A thousand splendid suns’. Within a short span of 5 months, it sold over 3 million copies.
Being his pattern, Hosseini drew on his early experiences in Afghanistan to create the foundation of this book. The book begins with a betrayal and ends with redemption similar to his other two books. Hosseini is perceptive and uses plainspoken family drama to convey the complex recent history and culture of Afghanistan to multitudes of readers in America and around the world. He strips away the stylish elements and reduces the tale to its emotional essence. Though one can find plenty of similarities between his 3 books, attention to detail can help us understand how he has evolved as an author. A major theme in this book is Marxism and this is heavily influenced by the concept of breaking an unbreakable caste system.
