ok. so i doubt it took me a thousand minutes to read A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, but I'll tell you this: it was incredible. There is something about this author that really is amazing. His stories are heartbreaking (yes, I cried for the last hour of reading) and enchanting, especially considering they happen in a world that I don't even begin to want to imagine what its like.
To anyone looking for a book to read - I highly recommend this. If you liked The Kite Runner at all, you'll enjoy this one as well.
I'm in that period where i just want to lay in my bed, cry and think about this book. I love books that do this to me. I hope you enjoy, also.
I think what I'll do instead is go to his website (linked above) and read some of the question and answers & discussion group questions...
