First Chapter, First Paragraph & Teaser Tuesday: And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini

First chapter, first paragraph, is a meme hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea.

I’m currently reading Khaled Hosseini’s latest novel, “And the Mountains Echoed.” Here’s the opening of the story:

FALL 1952

So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one. But just the one. Don’t either of you ask me for more. It’s late, and we have a long day of travel ahead of us, Pari, you and I. You will need your sleep tonight. and you too, Abdullah. I am counting on you, boy, while your sister and I are away. So is your mother. Now. One story, then. Listen, both of you, listen well. And don’t interrupt.

I will have a review up soon. Let me just say that, as expected, this is a marvelous work of fiction!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• 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!

Here’s a teaser from page 134:

They say, Find a purpose in your life and live it. But, sometimes, it is only after you have lived that you recognize your life had a purpose, and likely one you never had in mind.

What are you reading? Share a teaser!
