✍ REVIEW & OPINIONS Khaled Hosseini’s book A thousand splendid Suns
Ever since I read Cometas en el cielo last year, everyone was saying to me: “You have to read a thousand suns, it’s better”.
And from my point of view, yes, it’s better. Much better.
Without detracting from the previous one and without detracting from it, it seemed even more intense to me.
They are two almost parallel stories whose point of union is cruel, hard and difficult to assimilate. I didn’t stop liking him because of it, but I needed to keep reading.
I see it as a necessary book, a book in which so many different points of view are presented in such a complicated country that it helps a lot to get an idea of what Afghanistan really is for its inhabitants.
Right now in 2019 it is very difficult to think that Kabul or Herat were prosperous cities, where women were not mere objects, where the culture of male chauvinism and oppression was what only a minority thought.
After decades of war, with different open fronts, with countless changes of government…it is always the civilians who in the end suffer the hardships of this situation.
Told in a marvelous way, it catches you from minute one, and once Marian and Laila unite their destinies it is impossible to stop reading it and I personally, who have read it to myself in only 3 days, when I was not reading, I was thinking about what I had left halfway without being able to imagine, or without wanting it in many cases, to what I was going to find when I returned to its pages.
With very hard or even cruel moments or scenes, I highlight one of Laila’s births. While I was reading it, I was clenching my teeth myself.
On the other hand I think it has a brutal documentation and such a visual way of telling everything that it conveys a sense of closeness that has left me overwhelmed on many occasions.
The end, obviously I’m not going to tell you, but I can tell you that I finished it with rage, tears in my eyes and slowly, without wanting to get to the last page.
And when I finished it, I really realized that it was a book that left a mark on me and that I would recommend reading to many people who, from my point of view, have a very closed mind and would need their eyes to be opened.

✍ SUMMARY & SYNOPSIS of Khaled Hosseini’s book A thousand splendid Suns
We were in Afghanistan in the early 1960s.
On the one hand we know Marian, a harami, illegitimate daughter, of a rich merchant in the city of Herat. She lives with her mother in a narrow house in the middle of the countryside away from anyone who can see her close to her paternal family. Her father visits her on Thursdays and for her that is the best thing of the week, from her childish mind she understands that this way he shows her that he loves her and keeps her on a pedestal. But soon he’ll realize his sad reality.
On the other hand we will meet Laila, daughter of educated Afghans, who are not wealthy, the youngest of three brothers. They live in Kabul and dream, thanks above all to their father, of becoming whatever she wants to be. Her father is a professor of Farsi at the university and her mother is a cheerful and funny woman.
Until the war begins. The lives of Marian and Laila will cross thanks to Rashid, an old and grumpy shoemaker who thinks he knows what they both need and want.
