I've not read Splendid Suns yet, but I thought The Kite Runner was a wonderful book and am sure that this will also painfully beautiful, can I recommend those that were left wounded by this story that you read Three cups of tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin.
I read "A Thousand Splendid Suns" a few months ago and thought it was fantastic. I read "The Kite Runner" but to me this book didnt come close. Can anyone recommend a book that would hold me the way the first one did. I have read alot of Muslim books since then and have been some what facinated by the tales and just cant believe the harrowing tales that some of these poor women have had to live through.
