A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

born in Afghanistan

Review: I listened to this as an audiobook. I enjoyed it. The woman who read it had a gentle accent which helped to relate to the story, but wasn't strong enough to be distracting. I think that I would not have liked the book as much had I read it, I don't think it would have kept my interest. The way that he spanned the decades pulling the most important incidents was great, it prevented the story from getting too stagnant. I felt a little lost with the political factions, perhaps because I couldn't go back and reread, or check past pages.

36119 Hi I asked a question a couple of weeks ago.
Did it get missed?
Thanks :)

36119 Hi I want to claim Pinocchio.

It was originally serialized but then published in its entirety in February 1883. Does this work for 10.7? Buy Nothing Christmas

Also, am I correct in assuming it wouldn't get style points?

36119 So I just finished A Study In Scarlet, and though none of the plot takes place in Utah, there is a Large flashback section at the beginning of part 2, definitely more than 10%.

So I'm going to read The Sign of Four by Conan Doyle for 15.1 (it was published FEBRUARY 1890)
and then carry on with The Picture of Dorian Gray (Published JUNE 1890).

Is that okay?
