A Thousand Splendid Suns: Book Review

A Thousand Splendid Suns Book Cover
Published: May 22, 2007
A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's last thirty years that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a tale of two generations of characters brought jarringly together by the tragic sweep of war, where personal lives—the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness—are inextricable from the history playing out around them.

  1. Wow, this sounds like such a great book! I’ve been in isolation for about 6 weeks and I’m in need of some new reading material. I’ve read a few classics and even some new releases but this one intrigued me. I like books that you cannot stop thinking about once you put it down, and if it’s easy to ready, that’s a bonus. I checked the price and it seems well worth it, thanks.

    1. Hello Brandon! So glad you’re considering purchasing this novel – it definitely seems like something you would really enjoy! Thanks for taking the time to comment!

  2. This was a great review, I will definitely be adding this to my read list now. Although I can’t read in a vehicle like you without getting motion sick I do enjoy listening to books while I drive. Do you know if this is available as an audio book? Do you recommend any other novels by Khaled Hosseini?

    1. Hi Tyler! I’m so glad you are going to give this amazing book a read! I would recommend The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini as well, it’s his most popular novel and it’s beautifully written 🙂
