A thousand splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini
I discovered many good authors last year. Linwood Barclay, Simon Kernick, James Siegel and Khaled Hosseini. I read Hosseini's the Kite Runner and a thousand splendid suns. I liked the latter more. It tells the story of two women Mariam and Laila from different times, different personality, and different outlook in life from Afghanistan, who come together for a cause.

Hi. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I haven't read this one though I have read The Kite Runner. That book was so fabulous that I've become a little apprehensive of picking up another book by Hosseni lest I be disappointed.

Hi Neer,
I loved the way Hosseini etched out the characters and the special bond that develops between Mariam and Laila. If you loved the kite runner you wouldn't be disappointed with This one.
