BOTW (Book of the Week) - A Thousand Splendid Suns

If you've read and enjoyed Khaled Hosseini's Kite Runner, this is even better than his stunning debut. This is a moving story that follows the lives of two generations of women in Afghanistan, and it gave me a glimpse into a culture that I knew so little about. This is a tortured, beautiful and powerful love story, an emotional tear jerker and a majestic historical novel all rolled into one fascinating and mind gripping read. I read this book in one day and it has stayed with me for several years now. A must read.
One of the best books I have ever read.
