    Summary of the Book


    This book tells us a breathtaking story of the unstable events that happened in Afghanistan over the last thirty years - from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban and post-Taliban rebuilding. It recounts a tale of two generations of characters who are brought together by the dire consequences of war where their personal lives are entangled in the history playing out around them.


    About the Author


    Before turning into a full-time writer, Afghan-born American novelist Khaled Hosseini was a physician. It was Hosseini’s debut book The Kite Runner, which was set in Afghanistan and featured an Afghan as the protagonist, that brought him fame and urged him to retire from medicine to pursue writing. Apart from The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini has written three other books - A Thousand Splendid Suns (2007), And the Mountains Echoed (2013) and Sea Prayer (2018). Currently, he lives with his wife and two children in Northern California.

    Enlightening story about women of Afghanistan, love, loss, war and hope!

    I'm so glad that I read "A Thousand Splendid Suns". I learned about so many things about Afghanistan I wasn't aware of like Soviate invasion, mujahideen, taliban & then cleanup by America.

    There is heartache, joy, tenderness, pain, regret, sacrifice,..so much enfolded into this masterpiece and told with such depth you can almost feel the oppression that the women lived through.

    "A man's accusing finger always finds a woman."
    -Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns

    Overall, it was a beau...

    Super!

    Today I finished reading "a thousand splendid suns" by Khaled Hosseini. The book is amazing. It is so beautifully written that it touched my heart and Khaled Hosseini became one of my favorite authors. The character of Mariam will always shine in my heart like the thousand splendid suns. The first part of the story is about the bonding between Mariam and her father Jalil. Second part is about the bonding that grows between the two wives of Rasheed who has a age difference of about 18 years. T...

    Worth every penny

    I got the book soon as promised, I was delighted by the quality of the book. Now let me talk about the book. When you listen to the rhythm and harmony of threads of thoughts from a blessed author your mind soothes. I loved the way Khaled Hosseini exclaimed his emotions. I loved his writing style to the moon and back. The book is not at all draggy. If you read the first page itself you will be trapped because, you won't be able to leave the book and go. And the story move in the novel is high...

    this book can rattle you!

    You are one person before you read this book. And you are a fully changed person AFTER you complete the book. Having a poignant plot, this book will make you appreciate every little thing, & will make you realise just how fortunate you are. The pain, the suffering and the sacrifices described in this book truly provide a great insight into the depths of courage and love. Unlike THE KITE RUNNER, in this book, you will be unable to figure out the aptness of the title, until you reach the very l...

    One of the best books I have ever read. Truly Magnificent !!!

    “One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs,
    Or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls.”

    As a kid Mariam's heart is broken by a person whom she adored the most, then loses the Nana who cared only for her....
    Rasheed is the cunning, manipulative devil who makes the lives of Mariam and Laila a burning hell...
    Tariq is the Love Laila yearns for in pain and smiles...
    Laila is the daughter who sees her mother's pain and father's helplessness
    All these people endure...
