    Mariam is only fifteen when she is sent to Kabul to marry the troubled and bitter Rasheed, who is thirty years her senior. Nearly two decades later, in a climate of growing unrest, tragedy strikes fifteen-year-old Laila, who must leave her home and join Mariam's unhappy household.

With the passing of time comes Taliban rule over Afghanistan, the streets of ... Show more

Another masterpiece

by Smitty237 on Apr 18, 2013

Excellent literary piece from one of the best authors of this generation. This book is every bit as good, if not better, than his previous work, The Kite Runner.

khaled Hosseini does it again with Splendid Suns

There are many authors who launch with a bang, and then fizzle out with their second publication. Khaled Hosseini is an exception in that respect. His second novel is as gripping as his first. Agreed, he is an author of the masses and both his novels are equally successful in drawing attention of the ... More
