    A Thousand Splendid Suns is a 2007 novel by Afghan-American author Khaled Hosseini. It is his second, following his bestselling 2003 debut, The Kite Runner. The book focuses on the tumultuous lives of two Afghan women and how their lives cross each other, spanning from the 1960s to 2003. A beautiful account of a country so foreign few care to understand it, this moving tale of family, friendship and faith in Afghanistan is one everyone should open their hearts to.

    This is by far my favorite book, and Khaled Hosseini is my favorite author. A Thousand Splendid Suns portrays one of the strongest and most touching relationships I have read about - the friendship between Mariam and Laila. It takes place in Afghanistan and explores the many struggles women have to go through. I don't want to give any of it away by providing a summary or review, but please just read it! You won't be disappointed!

I've heard people challenging the notion that this book is Science Fiction. If it's not, then it deserves it's own genre. It was so good and so different in so many ways.

If you think Nora Roberts is a bit much and Jodi Picoult is a tad sad then Nicholas Sparks books are the perfect romance novels for you. The Guardian is my fav but all are good if not great reads.

Easily one of my favourite novels. when I read the last line on the last page. I sighed, close the book, and then opened it right back up to the first page and immediately re-read the whole thing.

i will forever love shel silverstein. he was another very very early love of mine. the light in the attic, where the sidewalk ends and so many more. how is so many people have never read the giving tree?

The unforgettable, heartbreaking story that reveals a struggle in Afghanistan that continues today.

Of course this assumes that you only read English...It’s crazy when you put it that way.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini- an excellent book, made my heart break for Afghanistan.

Beach reading essential. Being an English teacher doesn't mean that I read only classics by dead white men.
