Ry of family friendship faith and the salvation to be found in loveBorn 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. AmazingHeart WrenchingImportantIn a world where people tend to make assumptions about people and places based on the news preconceived notions prejudice etc this book needs to be read I think a good portion of the American population hears “Afghanistan” and they think it is a country full or terrorists and unreasonable Muslim extremists who all band together to plot the downfall of anyone not like them A Thousand Splendid Suns shows the progression of life in Afghanistan from the Soviet takeover in 1980s through post 911 Taliban control All of this is through the eyes of two women trying to live a normal and peaceful life just like anyone in the world wants You will see that despite the extremists and unreasonable values of some most of the Afghani people are no different than you and meHosseini is a fantastic writer Not only is the story enthralling but the way he writes is engaging and easy to follow I was never bored or confused When I was not reading the book I was thinking about the book and could not wait to get back to it and find out what happens Sometimes you find the perfect book where the writing just falls into place with a click – that happened with this one While the story takes place far away and the life discussed unusual for me he made it very approachable and understandableThe characters were great The ones I was rooting for I was REALLY rooting for The ones that I despised I REALLY hated When I get this invested in the characters it is a sure sign of a great bookI will end with this warning while a great and interesting book it is at times difficult to read There are situations and scenarios that are upsetting and may trigger lots of emotion If you are extremely sensitive it may be difficult to make it through But if you can I think it will be worth it in the endIf you have not read this book yet I think you should give it a try The experience is very likely to be eye opening and maybe even life changing

August 2007I was riding in a cab in Bombay recently and a bookseller on foot approached me at a traffic light with a stack of books I did my best not to look at the boy but I couldn't help it He was waving several books in my face and something caught my eye I thought my glance was discreet but he saw me look and it was game over The light turned green right then and the boy starts running with the cab yelling 'Memsahib Memsahib' We're picking up speed I'm so scared he's going to get his foot runover so I grab whatever I could from my wallet and somehow get it into his hands In return he tosses a random book at me through the window as he's getting further further away from the cab I look to see what I ended up with It was A Thousand Splendid Suns which I was planning on buying anyways The cab driver asked me how much I ended up giving the boy 'A hundred and fifty rupees' I said which is barely 4 The cab driver says in return 'You paid a hundred rupees too much' Hardly I thought to myself That boy worked his butt off The best part is because the book is bootlegged it's full of typos and random fonts Love it In case I ever discuss the book with you and my recollection of the story is completely different from what you read you'll know whyJanuary 2008Read the book on my way to Vietnam a few days ago Loved it although it was missing a few pages here and there Coincidentally the friend I'm traveling with brought the same book on our trip so I had access to the missing pages And another coincidence our Mekong Delta guide was carrying a copy of the Kite Runner We were like some sort of Hosseini fanclub floating down the Mekong in our longboathaha I have a few thoughts on this book I'll write them out in detail soon I'm heading back to Bombay in a few daysmaybe I'll run into another bookseller on foot
