this book will break your heart,
This review is from: A Thousand Splendid Suns (Paperback)
This book was recommended to me by a friend, and at first I was thinking 'oh god this isn't what I'd usually read...' and got a little panicked. I opened the first page... and that was it. This book is an absolute and utter masterpiece, I felt everything from elation to despair to anger. When a book can make you feel all those things so passionately, you know it's well written. As a Western woman it really opened my eyes to the struggle of Eastern women. Most of the problems I was feeling in general were quashed, even though this is a work of fiction. It really opens the world up to you and I can safely say, it is one of the most influential books I have EVER read. I'd highly recommend it, but it really will break your heart.
