Product description

Review

‘A beautifully crafted and disturbing story of two women victims of the wrath of men. As unforgettable as The Kite Runner, this novel places us in Afghanistan with an open heart' (Isabel Allende )

‘I loved this book - I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. It is incredibly moving and a real insight into the madness and suffering of Afghanistan - in particular its women' (Fiona Bruce )

‘Hosseini proves his credentials as a superstar storyteller. This follow up to The Kite Runner will have fans rampaging into bookshops desperate for their copy. Yet again he weaves a masterful story around the lives of two extraordinary and compelling characters brought together in adversity' (Mariella Frostrup )

‘From further east comes, at long last, Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns in which the universally adored author of The Kite Runner returns with a study of love and self-sacrifice in a modern Afghan family' (Sunday Telegraph )

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'

Just when i thought that nothing could top the Kite Runner i read this. If you liked the kite runner, you are gona love this. This is the first time i have spent 5 hours in a day just reading a book. It had me hooked and oh did it make me cry. Its one of those stories that stays with you for a while after you finished it. Touched my heart in so many ways.

I devoured this book within a week. It is an incredible and often harrowing account of life as a woman in a war zone and their amazing ability to endure. I would thoroughly recommend this book.

Really engaging until you get towards the end. Knitting up loose ends too much seems to be an annoying habit of Khaled Hosseini

My first book by this author but definitely not the last! A book to be enjoyed by both genders, I found it hard to put down.I've since gone on to read his two other books and thoroughly enjoyed them but not quite as much as this one.
