A Thousand Splendid Suns
Khaled Hosseini
I've read a lot of books that use a whole lotta words and never really say much. *cough cough twilight* But the images and scenes from the book stayed with me for a long time.
Woman in Afghanistan during the war. The recent recent war.

Through the wreckage and chaos and violence of the country, the beauty of this world is conveyed.

Every street of Kabul is enthralling to the eye
Through the bazaars, caravans of Egypt pass
One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs
And the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls
