A Thousand Splendid Suns is the tale of two women. From an outsider’s point of view, these women could be looked upon as two separate oceans. However, if you looked deeper, you could find the great similarities they share. This novel takes you back to the cold war in Iran and Iraq. The author portrays his characters with immense love and loyalty. This book is one of a kind. It will literally move you to tears! I recommend this novel to all teens and adults. It has something to offer to everyone and anyone! My favorite parts were the childhood sequences; they really are heart wrenching.
