*A Thousand Splendid Suns (TSS) follows the much-acclaimed Kite Runner (KR) from Khaled Hosseini (KH). The almost autobiographical narration of KR pulls your emotional cords like never before. The book made me guilty of childhood meanness meted out to lesser fortunate of the group, then. Growing...Read More
