A Thousand Splendid Suns

by Khaled Hosseini

Description:

It is a breathtaking story about events of Afghanistan's last thirty years, from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding, that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. It is a story about two generations who lived in the awful period of war, where personal lives, the struggle to survive, raise a family, find happiness, are inextricable from the history playing out around them.
