Thousand Splendid Suns Audiobook Summary
AFTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS ON THE BESTSELLER LISTS, KHALED HOSSEINI RETURNS WITH A BEAUTIFUL, RIVETING, AND HAUNTING NOVEL OF ENORMOUS CONTEMPORARY RELEVANCE.
A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile 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 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.
Propelled by the same storytelling instinct that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once a remarkable chronicle of three decades of Afghan history and a deeply moving account of family and friendship. It is a striking, heartwrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love — a stunning accomplishment.
Thousand Splendid Suns Audiobook Reviews
A great written novel taking us through the lives of 2 amazing and strong Afghan women – Mariam and Laila.
Although they come from different generations, they encounter the same hardship, pain and suffering in changing Afghanistan and it’s brutal and violent history.
I do not want to write more about the story itself, as I do not want to spoil it for anyone who has not yet read it.
After breezing through some of the reviews, I started to read this book with very high expectations. This novel exceeded them and left me completely overwhelmed.
One of the best reads ever, and I do read A LOT. An eye opener. A perspective changer. It made me cry and it tied my stomach in a knot multiple times.
I read through some pages pressing one of my hands on my mouth, wishing for what was happening to end and for the characters to stop suffering.
Although this book was so hard to put down, I did it just to get up at night to hug and kiss my sleeping little daughters. I stayed awake just to keep reading.
With all the noise around flags, to kneel or not to kneel during national anthem etc. this should be an obligatory read for everyone who is privileged to live in a peaceful country.
