I couldn't stop thinking about the novel, it's character, the events .. MUST READ,
This review is from: A Thousand Splendid Suns (Paperback)
Kabul... One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs,
Or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls..
A powerful, energetic, compulsive, heart breaking, well-researched, fast paced and a simple novel by Khaled Hosseine.
A Thousand Splendid Suns tells the tale of Kabul and Afghanistan using storyline around of lives of two tormented women (Mariam and Laila) from different perspective but similar fate..
This heartbreaking but enlightening and eye opening story takes you through recent history of war torn nation, the suffering it's people lived though these unforgiving ages of war, it's culture and it's destruction.... soviets, mujahideen, taliban, americans, pakistanis... 9/11.. all aspects of Afghanistan captured through the eyes of "Mariam and Laila"..
A Thousand Splendid Suns is a story about family, joy, love, friendship, agony, sufferings, sacrifices, betrayal, hardships, despair and triumps... I couldn't stop thinking about the novel, it's character, the events I knew and tried to related with what Khaled portrayed... MUST MUST READ..
