Description

Description: So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one... Afghanistan, 1952. Abdullah and his sister Pad live with their father and step-mother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To Adbullah, Pad, as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named, is everything. More like a parent than a brother, Abdullah will do anything for her, even trading his only pair of shoes for a feather for her treasured collection. Each night they sleep together in their cot, their skulls touching, their limbs tangled. One day the siblings journey across the desert to Kabul with their father. Pad and Abdullah have no sense of the fate that awaits them there, for the event which unfolds will tear their lives apart; sometimes a finger must be cut to save the hand. Crossing generations and continents, moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos, with profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion, Khaled Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways that we help our loved ones in need, how the choices we make resonate through history, and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us.

Good emotional read

The book is good emotional read which keeps you captured. But I felt out of 200 pages, last but second 50 pages were just for delaying the end and unnecessary. It was then when I waited the book to end! This book is definitely not as good as Thousand Splendid Suns by the same author, but still it is very good, worth reading once!

Nice book, but one time read

After reading "The kite Runner" , "One thousand splendid Suns" went for this book without a words thought. on searching snap deal gave the best deal in books so went for it at once. Product delivered in excellent condition. Encaptivating book. Loved th e way the author made us visualize the world through the eyes of character. Though not as good as the previous two books, but its definately worth giving a read. Thanks Snap deal, you helped me save a bit of bucks.
