A Thousand Splendid Suns
A Thousand Splendid Suns | Khaled Hosseini
After 103 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. Propelled by the same superb instinct for storytelling that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love. Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them-in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul--they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival. A stunning accomplishment, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love.

The book was well written and a very fast read, but it was also endlessly heartbreaking. Tragedy after tragedy befalls both the protagonists and their home country. Ultimately a story about the strength of the human spirit but do not read if you aren‘t prepared to be emotionally taxed.

A man's heart is a wretched, wretched thing. It isn't like a mother's womb. It won't bleed. It won't stretch to make room for you.

Mariam and Laila connection bonded by haraami; one is defined by it and the other births it. Khaled does a great job of bringing Afghanistan to life, much like he did with the Kite Runner. The story is heartbreaking and warming of the perseverance of these women characters.

This was the first book to ever bring real tears to my eyes. I could not convince myself that Mariam and Laila‘s suffering was not happening right before my eyes. 415 pages devoured in less than a week. I only wish there were more books like this. Hosseini has the gift of taking an incredibly beautiful story of loss, heartache, and the poverty of the soul, and making it feel as if it‘s our own. What a gifted author.

I bought A Thousand Splendid Suns and Kite Runner from a book sale at about $2 each.This has been one of my best books of the year. It tugged at my heart but also opened me up to a whole different world, it made me appreciate my childhood and peace that I usually take for granted. I always pray for the children in Afghanistan. Can't wait to read Kite Runner more of Khaled Hossein

A captivating story unveiling the lives of burqa clad women in Afghan.Through Mariam & Laila,the splendid Suns that hid behind her walls,the book takes you to the dreams,love & talent that was shelled by the war bombs & the patriarchal men who wore an unseen burqa over their stinking mindset!A tale of great courage,passion & desire of women who are much more than the mere number of husbands and kids they have and how much they were marred for!

What a gripping read. Sometimes I forget what an “ivory tower” I, and many of us, live in. This book is moving from start to finish. The way the author writes kept me reading even when I should‘ve been doing something else. Not the happiest of reads, so be prepared, but definitely a read that causes pause and makes you think, rethink, evaluate, and reevaluate so much. Excellent.

This book definitely broke my heart. The story of two women in Afghanistan, born to completely different circumstances and generations, who end up married to the same man. It is a story of friendship, betrayal, war, loss, abuse and ultimately love. This book will stay with me for a long time and will ultimately be one of my favorites. It‘s ready to travel and hopefully touch another reader. #bookcrossing #bookcrosser #bookmail

A must read! So eye opening. I cried multiple different times. A story about two women....Mariam is an illegitimate child, and suffers from both the stigma surrounding her birth along with the abuse she faces throughout her marriage. Laila, born a generation later, is comparatively privileged during her youth until their lives intersect and she is also forced to accept a marriage proposal from Rasheed, Mariam's husband.

Looking for suggestions. This and one other book on my shelf have printing issues that make them impossible to read completely. I know I can‘t donate or sell them to a used book store.

Do I just put them in the trash? (gasp!) Any crafters want them? Other ideas? TIA

Tamra I might put a sticky note on it and leave it in a place like a laundromat to be picked up by someone. If the book was a good one I wanted to read, honestly I could live with a page of misprint. 🤓 I leave a trail of books on vacation in all kinds of unlikely places. 🙂 6mo
julesG Ask a school/college/arts&crafts shop whether they might want it. Or mail the publishers, they might replace it for a new copy and want the misprinted copy back. 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Tamra Unfortunately, I‘d consider both errors to be on too large a percentage of pages to render the book readable. But I like your suggestions! 6mo

#ReRead Just as good as the first time reading. I had forgotten a lot of the book, so I was caught off guard several times. My heart ached for Mariam and Laila. What a gift for a writer, especially male, to create such beautiful strong, resilient women. I highly recommend listening to the audio. The narrator was phenomenal and her accent added an extra layer of authenticity and originality. #pop19 #40prompts Completed ✅

2019 Book 23: If you don‘t know anything about the Middle East, this book will enlighten you. Reading books like this makes me so thankful to be a woman born in the United States. My heart breaks for the oppressed women who are still suffering this type of abuse, although I am glad to know there are men who value women in those countries. Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

JennyM I must get to this one soon. Great review 8mo

Possibly the only book I've read multiple times...lost count. Have so many emotions associated with this book. Whatever review I come up with won't do justice to this book. To put it simply, I love it and will continue to reread it...
