I just realized we forgot to rate the last two books.  Have at it!

Mountains gets a solid 4 from me; it was a lovely interwoven story and I still adore Hosseini's writing. I would even recommend to Betsy (because it's nothing like Kite Runner).

Cuckoo gets a 2.5 from me, as well. I did send the Kindle version to my dad and he called to say he liked it, for whatever that's worth. :)

I didn't read the Mountains but Cuckoo gets a 3 from me. It was better than I had expected it would be.

Finally finished Cuckoo, listened to it in the car, and I came in here thinking I would give it a 3-3.5 but saw above that I gave Mountains a 3. I certainly remember Mountains as a much better written, much more appreciated read than Cuckoos. So I guess on the BB scale, Cuckoo gets a 2-2.5 from me. It was ok, nothing amazing or something I think I'll remember years from now.
