Product description

Review

`Explores the turbulent history of modern Afghanistan through the lives of two young characters' -- Marie Claire

`Hosseini has stuck with his winning formula: compelling, unflashy storytelling centred around two sympathetic protagonists struggling in difficult times ... nothing beats a good story' -- London Paper Book of the Week

`The novel offers extraordinarily harrowing insights into the lives of Afghan women over the past three decades .... If he cut his teeth by writing about his countrymen, it is the plight of Afghanistan's women that has brought him to realise his full powers as a novelist' -- The Times

`A gripping tale ... It is, too, a powerful portrait of female
suffering and endurance under the Taliban' -- Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail

`A view from inside the burqa of the nightmare of Afghanistan's
history over thirty years ... grippingly told' -- Alan Marshall, Daily Telegraph

`Anyone whose heart-strings were pulled by The Kite Runner should
be more than satisfied with this follow-up' -- Natasha Walter, Guardian

`Hosseini has that rare thing, a Dickensian knack for
storytelling. He excels at writing suspenseful epics filled with compelling
characters' -- Lucie Young, Daily Telegraph

`Hosseini illustrates beautifully how ordinary people are capable
of great things through the power of love' -- Shauna Bartlett, Glamour

`Hosseini is at his best in some of his description of the landscape and his account of the developing relationship of the two wives, which begins with hostility and slowly blossoms into a concord ...'
-- Observer

The Times

`The novel offers extraordinarily harrowing insights into the lives of Afghan women over the past three decades .... If he cut his teeth by writing about his countrymen, it is the plight of Afghanistan's women that has brought him to realise his full powers as a novelist'
