First, this usually isn't my kind of book. In fact I picked it up a bit begrudgingly because it was for book club. It sat around a week, maybe two before I actually started reading. But, but...

The lives of these two girls who became women held me in a tight fisted grip. The story flows easily while being honest, heart wrenching one moment and heart warming the next. Hosseini drew the emotions out of me with very little effort.

I found myself thinking of the women in my life. How they have shaped my growth and personality and wondered what sacrifices they've made. In the end I cried and hoped all the women in my life find their own thousand splendid suns or at least the peace of know their sacrifice meant something to someone.
