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.

#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 ✅

Although I liked The Kite Runner better, this was really good. My heart was with and ached for Mariam and Laila. 😢 It was a story of endurance, hardship, rejection, love, and friendship.

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! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

This portion of text made me realise how true these words were. Boys, and by extension most men, usually refrain from saying stuff like 'I miss you' but show their care through actions while most women express their love through words as well. Such wonderful and realisitic writing from Khaled Hosseini! ❤️

“Who created death and life that he may try you.”

Thank you Khalid Hussein‘s for an amazing piece of literature. The woven verses from the Quran into the story make this book so special. I will never forget Mariam and Laila, and how close I felt to these two characters.

As a veteran of the war on terror, I continually pray for peace in Afghanistan, and this book, in its own way brought me closer to my own closure. That‘s all for now.

I can‘t remember the last time a book made me this emotional. I was shocked to realise it was by a man because the women were so vivid and psychologically realistic, I felt I knew them so well. I‘m excited to see it on stage but I‘ll have to bring tissues and have something funny to listen to after.

A lot of the uk rn could do with being exposed to complex, touching stories like this from the Islamic world.

So I‘ve thought about this prompt all day and night as you can see! It‘s 2 am... This book totally wrecked me... these two women and the terrible things they had to go through just to stay alive. At first Mariam resents Laila when she comes to live with her and her husband Rasheed, but then they become best friends as they shield each other from his abuse. This book and these characters have stayed with me so I‘ll call them #BestBookFriendship

I was sobbing uncontrollably by the end of this book. The rare instance when a male author does justice to female characters. The journey of two women through the violence of war and life, and the solidarity and comfort they find in each other. I loved the emphasis placed on female friendships. It's impossible not to feel for these characters.

A masterful work of literature by Hossein, "The Thousand Splendid Suns" moves the reader with vivid descriptions of war in Afghanistan and the life of common folk caught up in the conflict. Mariam's tale is especially sad starting with the illegitimacy of her birth and a chilchood laced with longing to live with her father. What follows is a tale of hardship, endurance and survival which highlights human resilience.
