A Thousand Splendid Suns — 3 years ago
A read of such terrifying pathos.. Couldn’t even begin to visualise some of the acts of some of the (more extremist-minded) characters, at some points.
And admittedly, there were parts of Hosseini’s novel that I was just telling myself i had to get through to reach what came next.
But, the novel is a recommended read surely, just for its beautifully poignant closure – that merits (almost) all of the horror that precedes the denouement.
A beautiful homage to the sheer courage and faith of womankind, in times that suffer from a dearth of compassion and humanity.
