by Khaled Hosseini

  • SKU: 2030301006773

“A brave, honorable, big-hearted book.”

—The Washington Post

" A Thousand Splendid Suns is an ambitious work. Once again the setting is Afghanistan, but this time [Hosseini] has taken the last thirty-three years of that country’s tumultuous history of war and oppression and told it on an intimate scale, through the lives of two women.” 

—The New York Times.

“Absolutely compelling on every level. It’s nearly impossible for a novel—a work of fantasy and fabrication—to deliver a formidable blow, a pounding of the senses, a reeling so staggering that we are convinced the characters and their dilemmas are genuine. Such a persuasion is particularly difficult when the setting is Afghanistan, a country and culture many see as too strange for recognition, for empathy. But that's what Khaled Hosseini does again and again in A Thousand Splendid Suns.”

—Chicago Sun-Times

“Khaled Hosseini has a storytelling gift...[He] offers us the sweep of historic upheavals narrated with the intimacy of family and village life.”

—Los Angeles Times

“This engaging, heartbreaking novel soars.”

 —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

  2. Excellent price

    I actually have read this book and wanted my own copy. I looked around and found the price a bit high. I thought TBC would be just as high, but the price was amazing and affordable. The next book I purchase, I will check with TBC first.
