    SPLENDID INDEED :)

    A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of the best books that I have ever read in my life. I bow down to Khaled Hosseini in respect and admiration for the wonderful story that he has written.

    This book is a beautiful, heart-wrenching and heart-warming depiction of the power of hope, faith and love. It tugged at my heartstrings in a way I never thought possible. I had never felt so numb in my life as I had felt after I completed reading the book. This story is going to stay with me FOREVER; it is s...

    Worth the time!

    The book is worth giving time to. It has all elements that a book talking about atrocities should. There's a perspective to life that liberated women are alien to, a way of life they consider moments of history. Shameful yes, but there still exists such a society where inhuman acts on women are endless all in the name of "naag namoos". It is not to far from the ones who are liberated.

    Sure to touch every heart......

    Truly the most amzazing book; blend of emotions, drama and truth.
    Khaled Hosseini just captivates the heart of readers... he makes us laugh, he makes us cry. “Like a compass needle that points north, a man's accusing finger always finds a woman. Always.”

    It is a page turner -- you won't want to put it down once you start reading. Every character in this book is perfectly described.

    This one is a must read.

    Amazing!!

    After the kiterunner, i never thought that khaled hosseini could get more depressing. but he did. and what's more, this book is even better than the kiterunner. it has more gore and violence, more emotions and is more heart-wrenching. it's extremely pathetic the way the antagonists treats the two protags, and how they still manage to cope up!! but i guess that's what afghanistan was, during the taliban regime.
    this book deserves all the accolades it has received. five stars!!!

    He simply has that thing of touching our hearts..

    I have already read "The Kite runner', so had high hopes of this book. Simply put my hopes were not let down. This book leads us through the difficulties of Afghan people, esp. women, and you just can't help but feel really bad for the women there.. The speciality of Khaled Hosseini's books are that he explains the character's emotions in detail that we can literally picturise it or empathize with the character. Kudos to Khaled Hosseini for this book and for 'The kite runner'.

    Puts things in perspective. A must read.

    Mr. Hosseini does a great job of speaking out for a class of people that has no voice of its own. One after another, the facets of life as a woman in a greatly patriarchal and repressive society left me astounded. Afghanistan was in many ways a slowly liberalizing society as recently as the 1970s. This book describes, through a human perspective, how the nation became a veritable hell for its own people after the usurping of power by the Taliban. How the people had to survive with restriction...

    Heartbreaking -->yes , masterful--> may be

    It is a story of two Afghani women(Mariam and Laila) to exemplify the status of women in Afghanistan spanning 3 decades --starting from soviet invasion then mujaheddin fight after that Taliban take over and finally US invasion(to find Osama).
    The first part of the book starts with introducing a little girl Mariam. Her father is a rich and respected man of Herat(a city in Afghanistan) but her mother was a servant in his home, which led to the pariah of her and her mother. this also entitled he...
