We were discussing the book 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Khalaed Hosseini. Our overall score for the book was 8.9 out of 10. This beautifully written book gave us all lots of points for discussion .
"I loved the book" "It took a while to get into but then I was riveted" "You could feel the dust and the heat. It was as though you were there." " The overwhelming cruelty in such recent times" "The descriptions were horrific " " It was written as though it was a real life story"'
“With one exception all the group enjoyed this book. Members thought that it was unusual, well written, and provided an interesting historical portrayal of New York at the time. It was, though, not a quick read and some readers found the italics off-putting”. Average score 7.31. thanks, Karen
