      A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini: my new favorite book

    • Ann Holden

      A Thousand Splendid suns, great book... I haven't read the kite runner, but a thousand splendid suns by khaled hosseini. Spanning 3 decades of life in afghanistan, this story is full of love and betrayal, hope and despair, friendship and pain, terror and joy. So believably told from a woman's perspective, remarkable that the author is male, highly recommended, but be prepared to cry.
