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, which spans a period of over 40 years, from the 1960s to 2003, focuses on the tumultuous lives and relationship of Mariam and Laila, two Afghan women. Mariam, an illegitimate child, suffers from the stigma surrounding her birth and the abuse she faces throughout her marriage. Laila, born a generation later, is comparatively privileged during her youth until their lives intersect and she is also forced to accept a marriage proposal from Rasheed, Mariam's husband.

santa's gift

LOTR is known to be mother of fantasy genre since a very long time. Being a fan of Harry Potter series it was a pleasure to read this. I was always skeptical about buying online books and that too only from the sites of online shopping which were too costly but santa belives in gifting rather than making profit and this site is real santa for me. Thank you Santa and as always love your gifts. You are the most trustworthy.

The Life Changer

A Thousand Spendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini definitely is an epitome of love in paper. It makes the reader live several lives simultaneously. The feelings and emotions of the characters are so vividly expressed. The book is itself an institution preaching the values and the ways to deal with the difficulties in life. On a personal level, it has made me change my mind about various aspects in life. Tariq's love for Laila, Mariam's selfless affection towards Aziza and Laila have such deep impressions in my mind. If I were to suggest one book for anyone to read at any point in their lives it would be this epic.
