    "Khaled Hosseini's Thousand Splendid Suns was not an easy read. Frankly, I thought it was boring and hard to follow. The only reason I finished it was because I was reading it for my book club and didn’t want to be the only one that couldn’t get through it. As it turns out, I was not the only one who thought it was overrated. I wouldn't recommend this book for other book club's. It just isn't good enough."

    "I wasn't as big of a fan of this book as others. I think it's plot is loosely knit and sparse at best. The story also seems lengthy for what it accomplishes. I feel like a lot of fat could have been trimmed from this, but it was an average read in my opinion."

    "A spicy throwback to yesteryear! A well thought out book centered around a family in Detroit in this thriller of imagination. It's weaving of storytelling and the end result of a not so subtle twist will leave you grasping for more. It paints a bleak picture during the harshness of the Detroit and Michigan time in the 60's and 70's. It's a gender defying generational saga that hooks you in. "
