A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini

Mar 20

This journey into tragedy is by Khaled Hosseini.  It is the tale of two amazing women in modern Afghanistan.  I don’t believe I have ever finished a book and said to myself, “Thank God I am an American woman”.  The story follows Laila and Mariam..two very different women who seem to have everything horrible that can happen to a person befall them.  Their lives end up intertwining.  The result is a beautiful friendship.  This story exemplifies that a woman’s actions know no bounds…if she loves.  Mr.  Hosseini is a vivid writer and he clearly paints a picture of Afghanistan.  Not anyplace that will be moving to the top ten of my travel wish list any time soon.  This is a great love story, but super depressing.
