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. 

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.

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.

    By ayoungmother
    This book was a quite different read from what I'm used to. I stepped outside my comfort zone and I have never been happier about it. I was able to experience another world from my own through the writers words. It was so beautifully written. Wonderful story. Heartwarming and heartbreaking. A balance of life and death, struggle and perseverance, love and hate. I loved it.

    This book keeps the reader captivated from start to finish while teaching the reader about Afghanistan and its culture. You can feel the love and hatred and how it envelopes the characters so that you feel what they do. There is no better book that places you in the character's shoes than A Thousand Splendid Suns.

    This story is touching yet haunting. I was so eager to find out if Laila and Tariq would eventually see each other again. I could not put the book down! The story makes you feel mixed emotions, romance, hatred, revenge. It has some jaw dropping moments that make you want to read more! Absolutely my favorite book I've ever read! You won't regret buying it!
