Khaled Hosseini is one of my favorite writers. I just couldn’t put down A Thousand Splendid Suns. The story of Mariam and Laila is overwhelming. It made me thank God for giving me such a beautiful and peaceful life. I enjoyed reading “The Kite Runner” and that’s why I was waiting for “A Thousand Splendid Suns”. I enjoyed both his novels equally.
After reading this novel, the story of Mariam and Laila was constantly in my head for a week. I kept thinking about them and wondering how many of them are there in this world. My heart never felt more compassion and urge to help.
