Teaser Tuesdays: And the Mountains Echoed


This is such a beautifully written book with some lovely quotes, it’s hard to choose just one to feature on this blog but I loved how one particular protagonist voices her regret at not having treated her mother’s foibles with compassion.

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

J’aurais dû être plus gentille—I should have been more kind. That is something a person will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old, Ah, I wish I was not good to that person. You will never think that.

~ And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

I think this is so true, don’t you? You never regret a kindness.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:teasertuesdays31

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

    I really liked some of the quotes from thsi book. But still I felt this book was not as good as Kite Runner was.

      @Avada@ashcerebrations Kite Runner is actually my least favorite book :), I liked Thousand Splendid Suns best followed by this one.

  • What a brilliant quote you have chosen for your teaser. I loved The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns but I haven’t read this one…. yet!

    • Nishita

      @disqus_mUBrEiIQ5D:disqus This is just as good as the others. Really liked this one too

  • That is a great philosophy!! I try to be kind as much as I can! Thanks for sharing.


  • Keri B

    Oh, that is an excellent quote (although I personally can think of one person I will always wish I was meaner to).

    • Nishita

      @disqus_neEAd4i9jn:disqus haha. We all have that one person I think 🙂

  • Five-Eyed Bookworm

    I’m going to read this soon! I finished reading The Kite Runner today and I loved it. My first book from Khaled Hosseini was A Thousand Splendid Suns, which I loved too.

    • Nishita

      @fiveeyedbookworm:disqus I think you will like this one too 🙂

  • Udita Banerjee

    Can’t agree. Sometimes people take advantage of your kindness and are ungrateful and evil!


    • Nishita

      @Udita:disqus yeah, that’s true. But I don’t know that I regret being nice to them. I may feel bad about their reaction, but also good if I know that I didn’t drop down to their level….if you get what I mean?
