I finished reading the book "A Thousand Splendid Sun" by Khaled Hosseini this weekend.
I had heard such rave reviews about the book but somehow I never expected such intensity which I felt when reading the book. It was so engrossing, so captivating that putting it down for sleeping at night was so difficult.
And once I finished the book, hubby asked me how was it. And I didn't know whether to call it awesome or to say that I felt so sad inside after reading it.
And I thought how can someone be so inhuman towards the women. I know this is not something new that I was reading or hearing about but the way the author had described scenes and situations, I could feel my blood boiling at those moments. As if I was there and seeing all this happen in front of my eyes.
This was the first book I read by the author. And am definitely going to read his other one, "The Kite Runner", as well.
