My Review of "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini
Disclaimer: I cannot judge this book fairly because I hated a lot of what the author wrote about in the story as far as domestic abuse.
So this is the same author who wrote "The Kite Runner," which is an incredible book. He has a good writing style that is very easy to read, and his stories are incredibly easy to see in your mind's eye. The way he describes his characters and settings is vivid and amazing. The story itself had a lot of husband beating the shit out of wives and sometimes daughter. This marred much of the book for me to where I actually hated it. Like "The Kite Runner," the story itself is very upsetting, so beware!
