You are always worried when someone comes out with a best seller right out of the gate. Maybe it was just a fluke and the second book won't be as good. Not so, if you liked Kite Runner, go ahead and pick this up. Same underlying theme about life in the Middle East but this time written from women's perspective and a perspective from a person who chose to stay behind instead for fleeing.

A book about the strength of women in a place where they are disregarded as human beings. And how to find hope when there is nothing but despair. This book is a keeper.

Joann Cotelesse Denise, Is this book really good. If so what do you want to swap it for. I have no idea what you read. I am a thriller, mystery person, but I do like a good read that is not in that category once in awhile. Love ME

Denise Hi, I would recommend that you start with The Kite Runner first just to see. Not that you need to, to understand what's going on but since 1000 Splendid Suns takes place in the Middle East during war it does have a few graphic parts with killings and violence. It's relevant to the story and I don't regret reading it but I would hate to have you feel differently. Kite Runner has less and I loved it just as much.
