A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini

splendidsunThe will to survive and accomplish is stronger than the oppressing forces.
Another brilliant book from Khaled Hosseini. This is the poignant story of two women who live in a society where they have no power of freedom. It is a vibrant tail of survival and what one has to do to protect oneself. Sometimes, one ends up hurting others in the process. It is also a wonderful love story between two women who become like mother and child, and the ultimate sacrifice that Myriam does to protect her “daughter”. It is a tribute to mothers and how they are willing to let go of everything for their children. But this story is also a vivid reminder of the daily struggles of women who live in an oppressive society, where they have been stripped off their rights to speak up, work, and just be. The amount of sacrifices the characters have to make throughout the book is heart-breaking. The ending is a happier one, of hope and resilience, of achievement and belief that one must not give up at their chance of happiness.
