Khaled Hosseini (box set) Price: Rs.426

The Complete Khaled Hosseini (Box Set) contains the two bestselling novels, The Kite Runner, and A Thousand Splendid Suns.

Summary Of The Book

Khaled Hosseini, an Afghan-American doctor, shot to fame with the publication of his novel, The Kite Runner. He followed this with another bestseller, A Thousand Splendid Suns. Both novels are set in the troubled, conflict torn Afghanistan.

The Complete Khaled Hosseini (Box Set) contains both these books. One presents the story of a father and his son and their relationship, and the effect that the changing political scenarios in Afghanistan have on them.

The second novel covers the same period, but here, the story is told from the point of view of women. It is the women who suffered the most under the succeeding oppressive regimes in Afghanistan, and this story covers the story of  women who are strong characters despite the circumstances that overwhelm them.

In The Kite Runner, Amir is the son of Baba, a wealthy businessman. Baba has a Hazara servant whose son, Hassan, is Amir's best friend. The Hazaras are a minority community in Afghanistan. Amir and Hassan share a close bond, and Baba too seems to have a special fondness for Hassan.

The crux of the story that changes the lives of the main characters occurs during one winter, during the kite running season. Boys fly kites whose strings are coated with glass. They try to cut off each others kites. During such a kite running event, Amir comes upon Hassan, who is being abused and humiliated by some boys, but fails to stand up for him and runs away. Haunted by his cowardice and his subsequent actions that end in Hassan and his father moving away, Amir tries to make up for it later in life.

In A Thousand Splendid Suns, Mariam is the illegitimate daughter of a rich man. She loves her father, but on one occasion, he disappoints her and later this event leads to young Mariam being married off to a much older man named Rasheed. Rasheed turns abusive when Mariam suffers consecutive miscarriages.

Meanwhile, a young girl, Laila, lives in the same neighborhood as Mariam and Rasheed. Her brothers join the Mujahideen and are killed during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. She later loses her whole family to a bomb that lands on her house. Mariam and Rasheed take her in.

Rasheed later maries Laila. When Laila gives birth to a girl, Rasheed is disgusted and abuses both his wives, and the little girl.

Worth beyond what you pay.......

If you want to get into the boundaries of Afghanistan, I am sure these two books will provide you the visas. Surely Khaled has mastered the art of blending life instances into social repercussions. The plot flows like a river hitting the right stones along with unexpected twists and turns without any interruptions. I assure that if you start with the first page of kite runner, you will surely end it with the last page of thousand splendid suns. The stage for drama is dry with blood and dirt but the characters are so lively that they will long last in your minds.
For all those who are about to proceed payment, I am sure you will have a good time and for those who are about to exit, you are missing one important book in your life.

Life inspiring books !!!

THE KITE RUNNER
A very touching story indeed. Now i know why this book turned out to be in the bestsellers book list!!! It gripped me from the very first page and i just couldn't put it down and just kept on reading it.At first i wasn't so sure if i would love this book but..i was wrong,the author has beautifully described about all type of emotions.

This story is about love,friendship,loyalty,betrayal,torture,cruelty and redemption.He has written it in a way that a reader is bound to get connected to the story.The writing style is very very good.From his novels only i got to know so much about Afghanistan.Really looking forward to read his other books too.

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a gripping fictional story.(It isn't only a fictional story,it teaches you great things about life.)so guys,go on and give it a try,you won't regret but you'll love it more...

A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS
Another fictional work by Mr. Hosseini and that's better than the his first book The Kite Runner.Its a heart-warming story about two women who struggle to live in a society where everyone hates them.

Mariam, an uneducated woman who is forced to marry at an early age.Her life becomes a dead end.She continues to suffer brutalities of life.But when Laila, a literate girl comes to her life in an unexpected way, she dreams of living again.A strong friendship grows between them and together they face the most dreadful obstacles of their life!

My Best friend recommended me this book and i really loved it a lot :)
A must-read book for everyone!

These are stories of life

I cannot recommend anyone to buy this product from flipkart since I have never brought anything from them, but I will surely recommend to read these two books. These are two masterpieces from the writer. The stories flow flawlessly and you get very much engrossed while reading. "A Thousand Splendid Suns" is even better than "The Kite Runner" and is indeed very much inspirational. If you think your life is miserable, well, you must read these books, the characters move on in life despite having to go through so much hardships. Hosseini is a great storyteller, these are among some of the best novels I have read.

A Must Read!!

I had read both the books...

The Kite Runner is one book you'll never be able to keep down... It gets you so much involved in it.... It's about family ties, guilt, betrayal and the bond of friendship....

I thought that the beginning of the book was really good, the middle one was a little "raw" (hope u get what i mean 2 say), but the ending was just mindblowing! leaves u with a thoughtful feel after u've read the book

coming to A Thousand splendid Suns....
I personally thought that it was a very good book too, but just a little too violent, so people who can't handle domestic violence kinda stuff, plzz dont read this!!
but again, its Conclusion was just soo powerful..

Tip: Plz read A Thousand Splendid Suns first, and then The Kite Runner.....

Great books by Khalid Hosseini

Both " The Kite Runner " and " A thousand Splendid Suns" are awesome read . I bought the set of books after hearing a lot about it . But it was over and above my expectation . Its always difficult to take out time for reading books but once I started reading " The KIte Runner" I automatically managed to take out time and my interest to finish the first one and start the next was very much . At the same time it has brought back my interest in reading books which was lost amid the busy schedule of life.. Would recommend to all who would be interested to read something different

As usual the flipkart delivery was awesome.For me flipkart is the best delivery portal online .
