Khaled Hosseini has become one of my favourite authors. Since reading his books, I’m more interested in Afghanistan history and culture. I’m hoping that my university has a 3rd year history class that covers some of the historical topics/references that are depicted in the book. It is honestly impossible to choose which one I enjoyed more as both had incredibly executed themes. The Kite Runner focused on friendship, family redemption, discrimination and nationality, whereas A Thousand Splendid Suns focused on gender role, shame, human endurance, oppression/hope and also friendship. I often value books that are centralized around friendship and family ties much more than love stories. Both are great reads, but as I lack the skills to provide a proper book report, I’ll just direct you to Amazon [The Kite Runner], [A Thousand Splendid Suns] if you want to know more specifics about the plot. Next I’m going to read Angela’s Ashes.
