A Thousand Splendid Suns

A Thousand Splendid Suns

This weekend I’ve rediscovered the pleasure of reading. I’ve experienced how incredible it feels to hear a character’s voice, smell the food on their table, walk the streets slightly behind them.

For those that haven’t read Khaled Hosseini‘s A Thousand Splendid Suns I urge you to do so. It’s shaken me from my reading rut and filled me with wonder. It’s magical to catch a glimpse of another world, and it’s reminded me that fiction can be transformational.

Reading it was an emotional journey so I’m not quite ready to get started on The Kite Runner, his first novel. Until then, any recommendations of what to read next?
