A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

I feel like I’m coming a little late to the party with this title because it seems that most people I know read it months ago. And it lived up to everyone’s rave reviews.

Wow. What a great book. I enjoyed and was impressed with how well the author writes women characters – so authentic. The story is put together so beautifully, and the ending realistic, and hopeful.

For those not aware of it, A Thousand Splendid Suns is the story of two women, Mariam and Laila whose unexpected friendship changes both their lives. The story is set during the events of Afghanistan’s last 30 years – from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban, to the post-Taliban rebuilding.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
