I recommend you read Khalid Hosseini's all novels, especially "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns" if your genre is Political fiction, War fiction, Domestic fiction, Historical fiction, and classic drama. His two heart-tugging and blockbuster novels, set in his native Afghanistan, offered simple tales of redemption and grace while the ugly realities of war in the country rumbled through the news. He makes you cry. Yes, I bet on this. His debut, 2003's “The Kite Runner”, written in the early mornings before work as a doctor, was followed by 2007's “A Thousand Splendid Suns” and "And the Mountains Echoed". Together they've sold over 38 million copies worldwide. In "A Thousand Splendid Suns", Mariam, an illegitimate teenager from Herat, is forced to marry a shoemaker from Kabul after a family tragedy. "The Kite Runner," tells Amir's story, a young boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul and a Hazara boy Ali. "And the Mountains Echoed" contains personal inter-linked stories of different characters along with the separation of the two siblings, Abdullah and Pari, which is "the heart of the book". Let me tell you what is so special about Hosseini's novels, so once you start reading the story, you will not want to give it a break because his method of fiction make you feel like you are one of the characters of the book. Each of his books hits you hard, pushes your mind outside the limit of human suffering, and opens the door to self and exploration. There is a world where all that we have taken in life are treated as privileges, even the fundamental rights of humans. His stories are incredibly descriptive and maintain the reader's interest throughout the book. He's great with words and produces images that flow like poetry. All his novels have heartbroken and depressing endings. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and click on the attached link and reading in soft copy.
