Dy's Take

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

I’m sorry Candy, but it was just a book.  Not a bad book, but certainly not worth all the hype.

I will say, though, that I thought the line of poetry that the title is derived from was used poorly.  It would have resonated with me more had it been used all throughout the book, but it was missing completely from the 1st section, and horribly overused in the last.  But maybe that was just me.

It was a book.  Not sorry I slogged through it, but won’t read it again (and doubly glad now that I skipped The Kite Runner !)

  1. I forgive you… mainly because I know you read “crap” and “writing books” and I think you are crazy. LOL. I didn’t like the first half of the book the first I read it either. On further readings I understood it more. But you know me, I’m pretty shallow. LOL 😉

    Candy, who reads her fair share of “crap” books 🙂
