A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
A Thousand Splendid Suns

LASALLE12456, January 1, 2013

The second offering for Hosseini. The Kite Runner was spectacular. This second book was even better.
It offers a personal view of the life of women in Afghanistan. A great read. The story of a young girl who is "orphaned", then shortly married off into a harsh life. It is the story of women bonding in a harsh country.
Don't pass this book up. You will be challenged by it's brutality. A page turner to the conclusion.
