A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

This book is a beautiful insight into the lives of some pretty inspirational women. It goes to show that no matter what hardships you are facing, people have more strength than you could ever think possible. That women, and particularly strong female friendships, can weather any storm.

My Recommendation

If you are a woman, read this book. If you are a man, read this book. When your children are old enough, read them this book. It has so much to teach us all within its pages.

Not For Everyone

The book has scenes of cultural domestic violence, but in a way that forces you to examine the cultural aspect of it and focuses your attention on the acceptance of the women.

To The Author

How one person can be so insightful is beyond me.

If You’ve Never Read The Book And Want To Say You Have

Don’t. I urge you to read this book for yourself.

Academic Prompts

The hiding of female suffering.

The strength of female friendship.

How governmental/societal shifts change the domestic landscape.
