A Thousand Splendid Suns has made me really appreciate the life I lead and the choices I get to make. It may be a novel, but how often do we get a story told to us from the eyes of the abused housebound women of Afghanistan. There should be more books written like this, but the authors should be women and the stories should be autobiographies.
Set in Afghanistan.
