Third book from Khaled Hosseini. I know the existence of this book for the longest time but never got around to reading it. Not until Ms Green book club was ordering it in bulk and I hop on the opportunity.
Khaled Hosseini does not disappoint!
I love how the novel started with 2 main characters, Pari and Abdullah, and in between all the pages, it weaves through the life of all other characters, giving us glimpse of how the war affected them. Yet he managed to somehow find a way of connecting them together without the feeling of abrupt end and beautifully ending the novel with Pari and Abdullah again. In a way, the storytelling shines a positive light on the war torn country that we know little of.
Of all 3 novels I read from him, I would think A Thousand Splendid Suns remains my favorite followed by this.
Right after I finished this book, I started the next one immediately and it’s a good one! Lets say there’s 300+ pages of it and I’ve bulldozed through 150 pages last night alone.
