A Thousand Spendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
I read this book when it first came out and enjoyed it even more than The Kite Runner. I was prompted to write about it today as there is discussion in the news of a law being processed in Afghanistan which would, in contravention of the country's constitution, reduce the rights of women. A book like this reminds us how poorly women rate in many parts of the world.
