A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roof, or the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls.

*the smol review*


This book freaking played with my emotions. I’m not even kidding guys. It was such a poetic and beautiful story. I simply adored reading it. Hosseini has this rare gift of narrating a tale with ease and it flows consistently and makes the narration even more extraordinary. It kept me reading continuously and I didn’t even notice the time passing so quickly. 

It’s quite difficult to sum up my thoughts after reading this book. Words cannot describe how intricate and beautiful it was. Khaled Hosseini takes no less than two pages to drag you into this fragile, war-torn Afghanistan and every page was a story in itself. 

‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ is one of its kind. One of those very few books that almost made me cry in several places while reading.It was heart touching to see Mariam grow from the innocence of a child into a woman. It was very pleasing to see Mariam and Laila’s friendship develop. Everything was so realistic that it felt as if I were a spectator right in front of Mariam and Laila and Tariq and Aziza. So good, guys. SO, SO GOOD.  
Definitely one of those books I’ll never forget and will surely re-read several times in the future and yet reminisce the story with all my heart.

Hope y’all liked this blog post and stay tuned! -Anj xx
