Latifa Boughaba, mother of students the center, we recommend Thousand splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini.Editorial Salamandra, Barcelona, 2007. Having read “The Kite Runner” by Afghan author Khaled Hosseini, then I thought, if this book fascinated me his second novel will not disappoint me. Indeed, “A Thousand Splendid Suns” is a wonderful book, written with a transparent language, lyrical and elegant. It mainly emphasizes the barbarity against Muslim women. The author, while in exile in the United States, describes life at home and tells of hatred, violence and fanaticism as currency in Afghanistan. He focuses his story on the lives of two women: Mariam, an illegitimate daughter of a wealthy businessman, lives with his mother and can not understand the hatred she feels toward her father Leila instead is a girl of 15 who has been surrounded by an overflowing love, but one day is alone in the street. The fate, the lives of these two women were crossing and living under the same roof and share the same husband, Rashid. I personally am very glad I read it, I really enjoyed and I also excited to see how unfair life has been like for these women and in general for all afgnanos who have suffered from wars and invasions since the Russians until the bloody Taliban . I detest its cruel for trifles, ranging from amputation of hands to stoning. Again, is a book that will rock you and make you see the world differently.Get us feel a little fortunate to live where we live and the way we are. I hope one day to touch them as they live, and an end to all this! Therefore, I recommend this book and more works by this author.
