AFTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS ON THE BESTSELLER LISTS, KHALED HOSSEINI RETURNS WITH A BEAUTIFUL, RIVETING, AND HAUNTING NOVEL OF ENORMOUS CONTEMPORARY RELEVANCE. A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years -- from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding -- that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives -- the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness -- are inextricable from the history playing out around them. Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heart-wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love -- a stunning accomplishment.

Talk about A Thousand Splendid Suns: A Novel

To be honest, I didn't think I would finish this book. I got through perhaps the first 50 pages and thought, there is no way I can finish this. I got through the first 100 pages and thought, I definitely will have to stop reading this. But, as you can see, I did finish it, and feel compelled to rate it 5 stars.

This is *not* light reading. It is extremely heart-wrenching from start to finish. (I would also say that, if you are a survivor of domestic violence, be prepared for very descriptive passages of beatings, rape, strangulation, isolation, and other horrific abuse.) From the horrors of abuse to the horrors of war, this book does not leave any dark part of the human heart unexplored. And that is why it is so difficult to read.

At the same time, it was not a book I could give up on. The character dynamics in the book are so complex that, after a while, they truly seemed like real people. The enduring power of Mariam's spirit is, all at once, beautiful, inspiring, and heartbreaking. And, even in a time of war, love and friendship ultimately survive.

This story also gives some insight to Western readers about what Afghanistan was like, pre-9/11.

I highly recommend this book and will be reading more by this author.

A great written novel taking us through the lives of 2 amazing and strong Afghan women – Mariam and Laila.
Although they come from different generations, they encounter the same hardship, pain and suffering in changing Afghanistan and it’s brutal and violent history.
I do not want to write more about the story itself, as I do not want to spoil it for anyone who has not yet read it.

After breezing through some of the reviews, I started to read this book with very high expectations. This novel exceeded them and left me completely overwhelmed.
One of the best reads ever, and I do read A LOT. An eye opener. A perspective changer. It made me cry and it tied my stomach in a knot multiple times.
I read through some pages pressing one of my hands on my mouth, wishing for what was happening to end and for the characters to stop suffering.
Although this book was so hard to put down, I did it just to get up at night to hug and kiss my sleeping little daughters. I stayed awake just to keep reading.

With all the noise around flags, to kneel or not to kneel during national anthem etc. this should be an obligatory read for everyone who is privileged to live in a peaceful country.

A MUST read.

My heart was torn to pieces and put back together again several times throughout this book, with my heart ending in a state of contentment that is shaded with sadness with the passing of clouds. A wonderfully written tale of tragedy and the endurance of love for one's family members. I did not know how deep love could run, especially when laced with such extreme circumstances and incredible cruelty, and I'm so very grateful for what this tale has taught me about the human spirit and the lives of those of whom I'll never know. This tale surrounding historical events in Afghanistan is superbly written and conveys such a deep degree of emotion that I found myself several times wracked with sadness that has now and will forever leave its mark upon my heart, as it goes out to the people who have had to, and still do, endure pure acts of evil that are unfathomable to me. Aziza's character will now always be with me, because I was born in the same year as she was, and it was harrowing to think about how incredibly different our lives were from each other. They were parallel in many ways, but worlds apart in the end, and I'm pained to think of how my life would be if I had not been born as an American. A sad but wonderful tale that I think any reader would enjoy and grieve over.

This book was not an easy read - not because it was poorly written, indeed the author did a masterful job. But this book brings history to life in a very personal way, and so many things were really hard to read about. It is astonishing how Afghanistan went, in a relatively short period of time, from free to Communism, to civil war, to religious oppression, and now, hopefully, back to freedom. The things these women went through is incredible.

I applaud this author for his courage in taking what we hear about in the news, and turning it into something we can feel. Only then will people take action to help.

Ah, Hosseini is a master storyteller. His characters almost feel like you know them and you get into their lives and their thinking and feeling. This book is mostly about the women in the country and what life for many of them is like: difficult, repressive, unjust. Yet the women continue on, they persevere and make the most of what they can get but it has to be a very sad life, maybe making death a welcome relief. Just plain living for them is hard, then you layer on the Taliban, and the warring. Ugh. I wish it were otherwise for these women but until the people change their mindset, things won't change much for them.

I love Khaled as an author, I have just about all his works. This book was a little difficult to read. It didn't appear in the same writing style as the Kite Runner. However this was an amazing story as well. It was also difficult to read because of the story line itself. It was hard to read the things the characters were going through, some of it was heart breaking. Nevertheless He hit another home run with this book because I couldn't put it down. The story told here is vivid, and terrifying, but simply amazing. Khaled is one of my favorite writers and this book is now one of my favorite stories told.
