Announcing a new Meetup for Book Club London East and Essex!

What: A Thousand Splendid Suns - Khaled Hosseini's

When: February 1,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
I have put the address in the write up below as Meet up often adds inaccurate postcodes

Some reviews of the book to entice you:

'In case you're wondering whether A Thousand Splendid Suns is as good as The Kite Runner, here's the answer: No. It's better' Washington Post

`The novel offers extraordinarily harrowing insights into the lives of Afghan women over the past three decades .... If he cut his teeth by writing about his countrymen, it is the plight of Afghanistan's women that has brought him to realise his full powers as a novelist' The Times

??at long last, Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns in which the universally adored author of The Kite Runner returns with a study of love and self-sacrifice in a modern Afghan family' Sunday Telegraph

'A masterful narrative ... He is a storyteller of dizzying power' Evening Standard

?Hosseini does not challenge the usual western view of Afghanistan, but he does enrich it - he adds greater knowledge and understanding to it, and makes the Afghans come alive as loving, feeling individuals. There is something marvellously hopeful in this process? ? Natasha Walter, The Guardian
