Thousand splendid suns (eBook)

Very well written. Characters come alive

Beautiful!

I enjoyed Kite Runner immensely, but this was even better. It is a beautiful story of the strength and endurance of human spirit. It is a heavy read, but the writer takes you right into the homes of his characters. One of my all-time favourite books!

Great!!!

This book is great from the first page to the last. I could not put it down. Its one of those books you wished you never finished. It makes you think twice about life and how we are truly blessed living in a free country.

A must read for all

This is one of those books that leaves you speachless. I couldn't stop reading and afterwards I couldn't stop talking about the story. It will give you insight into a world unknown to many. It made me thankfull for my wonderful husband and that I live in a wonderfull country. You can't put this one down and once it is finished you are filled with a feeling of "I want mor."
