      I was okay with The Kite Runner, but I LOVED this one. | A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. The story of two women, of different generations but married to the same man, and how they become friends in Afghanistan. Spans from the 60s through the Taliban's rise to the US invasion in the early 2000s.

      "A Thousand Splendid Suns" Khaled Hosseini. His novel "The Kite Runner" is more popular, but this is wonderful story, and in my opinion the better book.
