Another wonderful story from Hosseini---moving and engrossing.

From the back cover:

"Khaled Hosseini's novel "A Thousand Splendid Suns" is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan's past thirty years---from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban, to the post-Taliban reemergence---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 all. A Thousand Splendid Suns is a striking, heart- wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructable love."

Picked up this book from cafe segafredo (Dushanbe) on 18 January 2011.

Although I am usually a bit wary of bestsellers of this magnitude this is a very moving book. Easy to read but never cliche or simplistic Khaled Hosseini has greatly to give a great insight into Afghanistan's struggles of the past decades through the eyes of two women. Sad but rich.

Soon to be released into the wild in another corner of the world..
