A Thousand Splendid Suns

Book Cover


Favourite line from the book: …… a look passed between Lila and Mariam. An unguarded, knowing look. And in this fleeting, wordless exchange with Mariam, Lila knew that they were not enemies any longer.

I believe that the suggested title by the author represents the many hopes of the Afghanistan women. It is a beautifully written book about betrayal, forgiveness, love and most amazingly the willpower of women and what women can do despite being subjected by men.

This book is relatively easy to read and I finish in about a week. It is really addictive too.

By the way, do have a box of tissue with you (if you are someone who crys easily), while reading this book.
