Yay! You're now following a thousand splendid suns in your .

The sufferings of a land with a great tradition, the pathos of the women in a land of continuous clashes and fighting… the novel “A Thousand Splendid Suns” depict a lot more than that. Afghanistan has been the cradle and play ground for war lords, sometimes from the neighboring countries, otherwise from the interiors. In these chaotic perils there were the women who lived within the wall, behind the screens and within the clutches of religious coverings, holding the misfortunes of a birth. No need to say about the status of women in a male dominated society. In the name of god and in the name of religion the segregated lot suffered.

I thought he couldn't do better than The Kite Runner, but with A Thousand Splendid Suns, Hosseini has set some standards he himself might not be able to break. Its a splendid read that is highly recommended. Most of all, I would recommend it to those who boast of an unmoving heart and dare them to not flinch when they read it.

Propelled by the same superb instinct for storytelling that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love.

It's not a good thing when you're driving along in your car crying, yelling, cheering and experiencing all kinds of powerful emotions!

But..that's the reaction I had to this masterpiece about 2 amazing women who begin as enemies and end as soul mates because of all they had to live through.

We have NO idea how lucky we are, living in the freedom called America, until we read about the lives of those who suffer in third world countries. It's hard to even imagine that there are still people who believe and behave as Rashid did...and yet...we know there are.

And, while this doesn't purport to be a true story..it might as well be because it is so believable that you picture everything as if it was in front of you. It is magnificently written and, the reader is equally as wonderful.

I loved Kite Runner and I equally loved a Thousand Splendid Suns. I could not stop listening and I anxiously await his next novel.

A Thousand Splendid Suns Quotes by Khaled Hosseini

“A Thousand Splendid Suns” portrays the story of two women – Mariam and Laila.. Mariam by birth itself was a ‘harami’ because of none of her mistakes. She was only fifteen when she was married to Rasheed, who was thirty years elder than her. After some twenty years, the other girl Laila was smacked with tragedy. She had to join Mariam as another wife of Rasheed. Even though they finds it difficult to be together in the beginnings, they find consolation each other, then a relationship grows just like that between two sisters or that between a mother and her daughter.

A Thousand Splendid Suns - Book - Review - The New York Times

Khaled Hosseini is a classical storyteller who has clearly demonstrated his talent for crafting tales whose effective, if occasionally melodramatic, plotting and compulsive readability seduce readers --- especially those with scant knowledge of their exotic setting --- from the first page. In this case, he brings those talents to bear to expose the persistent subjugation of women that has marred much of modern Afghan history. At the same time, his determination to make that case contributes to what may be the novel's only notable flaw: the relative lack of complexity in the portrayal of its main characters. Mariam and Laila consistently display saint-like fortitude and courage in enduring almost lifelong persecution. Rasheed is so irredeemably evil it's hard to endure him for the length of time he serves as the novel's dominant male character. A greater degree of subtlety in sketching these characters would have made A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS an even more impressive work.
