Book Summary: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini A Thousand Splendid Suns is a breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years—from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding—that puts the violence, fear, hope, and faith of this country in intimate, human terms. Inseparable identical twin sisters ditch home together, and then one decides to vanish. The talented Bennett fuels her fiction with secrets—first in her lauded debut, The Mothers (), and now in the assured and magnetic story of the Vignes sisters, light-skinned women parked on opposite sides of the color line. Desiree, the “fidgety twin,” and Stella, “a smart, . After the unexpected success of his first novel, The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini decided to focus his second book on a part of Afghan society often obscured from public view its women."There are women characters in The Kite Runner, but I wouldn't describe any of them as major characters," he says."So there was this entire aspect of Afghan society and Afghan life . I want to do something splendid before I go into my castle—something heroic, or wonderful—that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead.
