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...

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...

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...

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...

Great book, not to be missed, never!

A sequel to the book The Kite Runner; only this time the protagonist is a girl. Same on the lines of The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns is a work of great repute. I read both the books and I am really happy that I bought them and read them from cover to cover. I strongly recommend these books.

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'.
On a personal ...

Terrific

Can I ever forget Maryam and Laila ? Can I forget smelling the dirt of Afghanistan ? Can I not fall in love with this ?
The answer to all is No.
One of the best books i have ever read in my life. It will take you away to a world where you are helpless yet eating and sleeping with Maryam and Laila. It is the kind of book that will haunt you at nights .. will live you hanging in the edge of destiny and reality.. will transform you into an insomniac.. yet it is all worth it. It will make you va...
