How to describe Hosseini's second novel... great, fantastic, amazing, wonderful, any other word of praise will suffice. It was one of those bittersweet novels that leave you feeling uniquely satisfied while also feeling incomplete. Hard to describe. I keep wanting to say it was as good, if not better, than The Kite Runner, but that's not true. For me personally, it felt just shy of being equal to The Kite Runner. Maybe it was because I was so busy while reading this book and never really had time to really sit down and enjoy it. I know that can often affect how great you think a book is. The only other small problem I found was that it dragged in the middle a bit. It didn't seem to have any thread pulling it along and keeping it anchored to the beginning and solidly tying it to the end. Besides that the book was awesome, especially the ending. Be warned where you finish this book because you will get teared up if you're not already crying. The part that really did me in was Jalil's letter. It was heart-breaking to read. The end also fills you with a sense of hope and rebirth. I hope Hosseini continues to write about the Afghanistan and people that most Americans down know. It's not just some far away land on a map full of gun-toting people. It's a homeland for many people who just want peace, they want things the way they once were. Are we helping them achieve that dream? Or are we just another of an endless cycle of outsiders? Like Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns opens our eyes and makes us see the true face of Afghanistan, and if there's only one reason to read this novel, that should be it.
i really like this book if you really want a good book to read get these books
