    Description
    The highly anticipated and breathtaking new novel by the author of the internationally best-selling novel The Kite Runner Mariam is only fifteen when she is sent to Kabul to marry the troubled and bitter Rasheed, who is thirty years her senior. Nearly two decades later, in a climate of growing unrest, tragedy strikes fifteen-year-old Laila, who must leave her home and join Mariam’s unhappy household. Laila and Mariam are to find consolation in each other, their friendship to grow as deep as the bond between sisters, as strong as the ties between mother and daughter. With the passing of time comes Taliban rule over Afghanistan, the streets of Kabul loud with the sound of gunfire and bombs, life a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear, the women’s endurance tested beyond their worst imaginings. Yet love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism. In the end it is love that triumphs over death and destruction. A Thousand Splendid Suns is an unforgettable portrait of a wounded country and a deeply moving story of family and friendship. It is a beautiful, heart-wrenching story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely bond and an indestructible love.

    Unsatisfactory

    Being the largest e-commerce company in Indian subcontinent, you should be ashamed of slipping in pirated versions of books. You take money and give me pirated versions of books with bad binding and extremely bad page qualities and that too with spelling errors. I guess it is only in India that this is possible. If i get one more such product I am never coming back to Flipkart ever again.

    Below Average

    The page quality is below average and printing is pathetic. The ink spills can be seen on the cover page itself. It doesn't seem an original copy.

    Slightly disappointed

    I think this is a copyright book. But can be read and there are no printless or missing papers.

    Q:Is it sutable for 13year boy
    A:It is. The novel contains some 18+ plot scenes but the author has written them in an innocent manner, without going much in deep. But, I think this book should be read by 15/16+ (:
