Amazon Editorial Review

Since its publication in 2007, A Thousand Splendid Suns has shipped over three million copies. The bestselling adult novel of 2007, it spent fifteen weeks at number-one on The New York Times bestseller list and remained on the list for an impressive forty-nine weeks. Propelled by the same superb instinct for story telling that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and salvation to be found in love. Now, in this lavishly designed edition of the novel, the narrative is enhanced by expressive photos that capture the people and culture of the region in vivid detail and reflect the book's powerful themes, so apt for our times: the passionate search for family, home, acceptance, a healthy society, and a promising future, regardless of the obstacles. Together with The Kite Runner illustrated edition, the illustrated A Thousand Splendid Suns creates a beautiful matched set.
