A Thousand Splendid Suns
10 New from
After reading the Kite Runner, I could not wait for Hosseini's next book, and I wasn't left disappointed! This portrayal of life in Afghanistan, which I knew nothing about has truly inspired me. The female characters portrayed in the book come to life, and the book deals with the difficulties that Afghan women experience in a culture way beyond what one could imagine. The story is descriptive and well written. The historical details of latter day Afghan history, only helps to enhance the story. I knew nothing of the history or culture of Afghanistan and found myself drawn into this book and it's characters. Hosseini writes so well, that I couldn't put this book down. I read several books in a year and this one was by far the best I have read in 2007. I just can't wait for his next book.
The Kite Runner
I have read this book twice now. The author writes so descriptively you can almost feel yourself being there. He brings his characters to life and you feel like you know them personally. This is a great story about a cultural and class divide. How one boys perception of life is influenced by those around him. Only hope the film is as good as the book
