A Thousand Splendid Suns
Share this product:
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, heart-wrenching novel of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love -- a stunning accomplishment.
