In case youre wondering whether A Thousand Splendid Suns is as good as The Kite Runner, heres the answer: No. Its better * Washington Post * A masterful narrative He is a storyteller of dizzying power * Evening Standard * Hosseini has that rare thing, a Dickensian knack for storytelling * Daily Telegraph * A gripping tale It is, too a powerful portrait of female suffering and endurance under the Taliban * Daily Mail * A beautifully crafted and disturbing story As unforgettable as The Kite Runner, this novel places us in Afghanistan with an open heart -- Isabel Allende A heartfelt saga that encompasses romance and melodrama, personal and political intrigue, the onslaught of war and dispossession * Independent * If he cut his teeth by writing about his countrymen, it is the plight of Afghanistans women that has brought him to realise his full powers as a novelist * The Times * A Thousand Splendid Suns has all the particularity of a novel and all the force of a fable It reads, in many ways, like an old-fashioned romance adventure * Mail on Sunday * Hosseini has done it again A Thousand Splendid Suns is a triumph. In Khaled Hosseini, Afghanistan has at last found a voice * Financial Times *

And the Mountains Echoed was chosen for the Richard & Judy Summer Book Club in 2014, and readers voted it as their favourite of all the titles. Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the UN Refugee Agency, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation which provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.
