A Thousand Splendid Suns (Unabridged)

by Khaled Hosseini

 

Propelled by the same superb instinct for storytelling that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of 30 years of Afghanistan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love.

Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever-escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival.

A stunning accomplishment, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love.

Enjoy the Ease of Downloading Your Next Book

Audio Book A Thousand Splendid Suns  Listen to AudiobooksDownloading is by far the most convenient approach to your audiobooks subscription. There's no waiting for mail deliveries or availability of popular titles, no scratched or dirty discs, and you can download audiobooks as often as you need. In addition, downloaded audiobooks are easier to manage on your computer and mp3 player/iPod/iPhone and include chapter breaks and bookmarking capabilities. Finally, when you download a book, it's yours to keep. This is ideal for those who want to build their digital library and like to reread their favorites. And you can always go back to your online library and download titles again and again at no additional charge.

 

Should I Purchase/Download or Rent Audiobooks?

It really depends on your reading habits and budget. Many find downloading most convenient for the reasons discussed above.

Audio Book A Thousand Splendid Suns  MailboxOn the other hand, if you're accustomed to Netflix, you already know how Audibook rentals work. You create a list of titles you want and the next available title is automatically shipped to you. When finished, you return it. No late fees and shipping is prepaid in both directions. Though you'll have to wait for the mail and, in some cases, availability of popular titles, you can enjoy audiobook CDs in your car or on any CD or mp3 player/iPod. If you rent books on CD, however, remember that a single book may require 8 or 9 CDs which will take time to rip onto your computer and then transfer to your mp3 player/iPod. (Some audiobooks are available on MP3-CDs which can hold much more than a standard audio CD, often an entire book.) While not as convenient as downloading, renting audiobooks can be more economical.
