Reviews & Ratings
In one of the most anticipated novels of the year, best-selling author Khaled Hosseini chronicles forty-five years of Afghanistan’s volatile history in a deeply moving and compelling story of family, friendship, compassion, and love. Set in Hosseini’s native Afghanistan, A Thousand Splendid Suns depicts the country’s evolving ideas about women showcasing the people and culture of a country that has been thrust into the international spotlight. Hosseini’s first novel The Kite Runner spent more than 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers list with the film version being released later this year. In 2006, he was named a US Envoy to UNHCR, The United Nations Refugee Agency.
