"You want a story and i will give you one"

This book was a highly anticipated book for me, I preordered it months in advance. I have read both his earlier works and so for me it is certainly his 'least best' of the three.
I didn't like the way different characters speak in first person and Also because of dealing with so many characters and so many different periods of time, the author is unable to reach out in depth for any of the main characters.
I found myself skimming paragraphs just to get to...

Disheartened this time..

I have read Khaled Hosseini's previous work with intrigue and interest. This time however his book has disappointed me. Truly speaking, the book is completely pointless.

It begins as an insightful story of a brother and sister in the country of Afghanistan. After a few chapters, it brings in detailed accounts of unnecessary characters and makes the story tiring. Halfway through the book, the story rapidly increases its pace, forgets the main characters and makes the reader wander aimlessly ...

The saga of human relations

Third in the series of some fantastic piece of writing by Hosseini, this book traces the journeys of a brother and sister through years. The plot of the book is slightly crowded at places but the emotional content is par excellence.

In particular, the character of Nila brings out the paradox between modernity and tradition in the Afghan society. Though the story is set in war ravaged Afghanistan, it relates beautifully to any of the developing countries, including India.

While the book c...

heartbreak and hope

Captivating and affecting . . . A masterful and compassionate storyteller, Hosseini traces the traumas and scarring of tyranny, war, crime, lies, and illness in the intricately interconnected, heartbreaking, and transcendent lives of his vibrantly realized characters to create a grand and encompassing tree of life.

Bad book. doesnt live upto expectations of his earlier books

I am devastated and heartbroken, literally as this book doesn't even come near to thousand splendid suns and kite runner. First few pages of the book are rather well written and carved which set your expectations about pari and abdullah ... however beware that your soul is about to shatter into pieces once you cross those well written pages.My frank opinion.. read thousand splendid suns one more time rather than reading this.

Accent of a spruce narrative chemistry

It'd skeptically be a gross misnomer if I were to remark on the gravity of this magnum opus. In all likelihood because the folks at The Guardian or The New York Times have, since eternity, champion'd in thus.

The one thing most would correlate if the book is flipped from cover to cover is that the novel has not one but stark flickers of many an endings, which comprehensively are sewn together in the end. One of the subtle feature which discerns this book to many others. Additionally, this c...

Confused Characters, too many stories in one book. Disappointing.

Khaled Hosseini, in his first two books "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns" amassed a huge fan following for himself. These books were powerful, packed with emotions and the changing equations of human relations. They touched the hearts of a large number of people, who were saddened and many a times distressed by these stories set in the backdrop of the appalling conditions of Afghanistan. If you have read these books you would surely want to read this one. But you have to brace ...

There's more to the book, apart from Pari and Abdullah..

Beautifully written - Khaled style. A sure page-turner.
It is definitely a must read, very emotional at certain instances.

The next sentence is a SPOILER!

It's a story about two siblings - Pari and her older brother Abdullah and how life changes when the two get separated.

However, the synopsis at the cover page of the book is a little deceptive - it revolves a lot more on other characters as well, not just Pari and Abdullah.

Saboor, Parwana, Masooma, Nabi, Nila & Sulaiman Wahdati, Marko...

Very poor

The book delivered by boolworld was found to be a duplicate copy a xerox one. I raised a complain with flipkart customer executive and ask them for replacement. Even after that they send me the book from the same seller and they once again send me the another xerox copy of the same. The never mentioned in their portal that it is a duplicate or Xerox copy. They charge me ₹237 for this ₹100 copy I would get it from the road side seller.
Bad experience from flipkart.
