Excellent read. Highly recommend.

It was a powerful and mesmerizing story of Afghanistan. One can feel the pain of the young girl who torn from her family and is forced to marry a cruel, old man - when he throws the burka at her and informs her that she is to wear it. Her later friendship with a neighboring woman gives her some relief from her daily hardships.

Together, they work to find a way to exit their miserable existences. It is one of my all-time favorite books - it might become yours as well. Like As the cliche goes, "torn from the pages of today's headlines".

A Thousand Splendid Suns Illustrated Edition

Like s sbohon Aug 29, I have never given a book 5 stars. This one I would give 6, if I could. Definitely the best book I've ever read! Even better than The Kite Runner.

Like f firebird Aug 06, Born in Afghanistan a generation apart, Mariam and Laila are brought together by war, by loss and by fate. Delia Owens. And the Mountains Echoed site Edition. The Goldfinch: Donna Tartt. Editorial Reviews site. As special as The Kite Runner was, those readers said, A Thousand Splendid Suns is more so, bringing Hosseini's compassionate storytelling and his sense of personal and national tragedy to a tale of two women that is weighted equally with despair and grave hope.

Atossa Leoni, who is German-born of Afghan ancestry, was clearly chosen because she can pronounce all the Afghan words—a big plus, but it's the only plus in this bad reading. See all Editorial Reviews. Product details File Size: Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

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

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. 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. 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.

About A Thousand Splendid Suns

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: 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. I wish it were otherwise for these women but until the people change their mindset, things won't change much for them. Want to read it again!

I didn't think he could outdo Kite Runner but this novel was eye-opening, breathtaking, heartbreaking all in one.

Highly, highly recommend! Mariam, lives with her mother out in the middle of nowhere. Her father is a rich businessman, Jalil, but he does not live with them, seemingly ashamed by his illegitimate daughter, but still comes to see her - almost weekly.

But then tragedy strikes and Jalil in turn forces Mariam to move to Kabul and marry an older, cruel man named Rasheed. Laila, who is raised in Kabul but grows up in a life very different than Mariams. Her family is loving, and her father loves her very much, and is always present. She has friends and a boyfriend and a wonderful life. Layla and Mariam lives are eventually woven together in an intimate, tragic and emotional way.

All the feels for this book!

The emotions will hit you hard and it's a testament to Hosseini's incredible storytelling that to me, has no faults. A must read. See all 4, reviews. site Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

He was Mariam's link, her proof that there existed a world at large, beyond th ekol- ba, beyond Gul Daman and Herat too, a world of presidents with unpronounceable na- mes, and trains and museums and soccer, and rockets that orbited the earth and landed on the moon, and, every Thursday, Jalil brought a piece of that world with him to th ekolba.

After weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and with four million copies of The Kite Runner shipped, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel that confirms his place as one of the most important literary writers today.
