A Thousand Splendid Suns
No. of Pages,
The characters here feel so human. Khaled is brilliant in bringing them to life - he's an amazing author, words fall short on what to praise him with. Brilliant writing and quotes. Honestly one of the best I've read so far. If anyone still has doubts about buying this book, please let this be the review that pushes you to go ahead and do it.
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.
Khaled is an amazing author. This book helps us to look at the other side of the world without any prejudice
