However, this isn’t necessarily a deal breaker in a story, but it is in this one.

Splendida cetate a celor o mie de sori by Khaled Hosseini (5 star ratings)

I think that is the perfect word to describe this book. I saw an Instagram photo of his the other day that said “working” I am praying he is writing his 4th novel!!! An amazing sense of time and place along with memorable likeable and dislikable characters and a plot that is educational and emotionally draining makes this novel the incredible read that it is and the reason for my 5 Star rating in and again in I still do adore The Kite Runner so so much, and in terms of my own personal connection to the story, I’d probably just leave it at that both stories had a huge impact on me and I found them both stunning: Annoying thing however, was that I didn’t see at all how the cover image related to the story.

Oh god, the tiny suicidal violin player in my head was at it again so I did what I had to do Buy the book and read it. I experienced every emotion imaginable- sorrow for the victims of Rasheed’s cruelty, denial at the news of Tariq’s demise, tenderness for the bond between Mariam and Laila, and indignation at Mariam’s fate.

The first, Mariam, is the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy businessman in Herat.

I have seen a few reviews in which they say the Farsi was distracting and annoying. Hosseini was cstate in Kabul, Afghanistan, in In fact, some of the eori characters can be considered better developed than they are.


Khaled Hosseini comes explains the horror of modern wars on ordinary people’s lives in detail and a much needed new dimension is added to the history of the world. Her father dotes on her and encourages her education.

The author ce unable to dwell on anything. Finally came up in an online book group read and just couldnt wait to read it again to see would I react the say way as I did seven years ago. See, that’s the thing. All the sighs drifted up the sky, gathered into clouds, then broke into tiny pieces that fell silently on the people below.

Mariam is an illegitimate child, and suffers from both the stigma surrounding her birth along xe the abuse she faces throughout her marriage.

A Thousand Splendid Suns is an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history sppendida a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love. This book is a masterpiece in every way you could possibly imagine. And this is what the book is only about. Mariam, being self-sacrificial, often tried to protect Laila and bore the brunt of Rasheed’s anger. Overall, it was a beautiful book that really opened my eyes to the wonderful people soi Afghanistan and their history and how many women are still mistreated A Thousand Splendid Suns is a book by Khaled Hosseini.

Like a novelization of a Kevin Costner movie, say, or an instructional manual on bathroom tiling. That was ssplendida depth of Hosseini’s writing, and if that’s not beauty, I don’t know what is.

Trivia About A Thousand Splend This book provided devastation and loss, as well as hope and love and beauty. Because even a violent sadist like Rasheed found, in the depth of his heart, love.

And what a book did it prove to be! He writes about harsh subjects war related atrocious death accidents, marriage to teens, revolution, violence, martyr etc Also, in both books you have the character leaving the country and coming back to remember the sacrifice of a very honorable dead friend.


Hosseini fails to lay the groundwork needed to justify Laila’s emotions in the novel’s cslor chapters. I’m still a complete wreck. Like the preceding novel was rather insulting in its propaganda, this one is insulting by being carried out like chick-lit which is insulting by definition.

I used to know the whole poem, but all I can remember now is two lines: They are all well developed and each of those characters have their own harrowing and difficult story to tell. View all 5 comments.

And from what Cetatd have rea I am about half-way through – and was becoming bored with the rather trite dialogue in this book or one-dimensional characters. And another coincidence – our Mekong Delta guide was carrying a copy of the Kite Runner.

He has three wives and their children all living in his home. The victims are good and practicing Muslims just like their tormentors lest anyone wants to blame a religion in which patriarchy is deeply institutionalized. Her father visits once weekly and servants from his house bring basic supplies. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Like diamonds and roses hidden under bomb rubble, this is a story of intense beauty and strength buried under the surface of the cruel and capricious life imposed upon two Afghani women.

A man dies of cancer. His depictions of Afghanistan and his characters bring them to life for the splfndida. Hell, we usually don’t read Middle-Eastern news.

They were unable to return to Afghanistan because of the Saur Revolution in which the PDPA communist party seized power through a bloody coup in April For the two women, life with Rasheed becomes a living hell.
