Propelled by the same superb instinct for liar that made The Kite Runner a cherished classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at formerly an inconceivable chronicle of thirty times of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, fellowship, faith, and the deliverance to be set up in love. After 103 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and with four million clones of The Kite Runner packed , Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, engaging, and hanging novel that confirms his place as one of the most important erudite pens moment. Born a generation piecemeal and with veritably 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 raising troubles around them- in their home as well as in the thoroughfares of Kabul- they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mama - son to each other, and that will eventually alter the course not just of their own lives but of the coming generation. With heart- wrenching power and suspension, Hosseini shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of tone- immolation, and that in the end it's love, or indeed the memory of love, that's frequently the key to survival. A stunning accomplishment, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling story of an enduring time, an doubtful fellowship, and an imperishable love.
