Description

Una conmovedora historia de amistad entre dos mujeres afganas de or�genes muy dispares.

Superando con creces el rotundo �xito de Cometas en el cielo, la segunda novela de Khaled Hosseini salt� de inmediato al primer puesto en todos los pa�ses donde se ha publicado. Nueva demostraci�n del asombroso instinto de gran narrador de que goza el autor, el libro cuenta la historia de amistad entre dos mujeres cuyos destinos se entrelazan por obra del azar y de las convulsiones que ha sufrido Afganist�n en los �ltimos treinta a�os.

Hija ileg�tima de un rico hombre de negocios, Mariam se cr�a con su madre en una modesta vivienda a las afueras de Herat. A los quince a�os, su vida cambia dr�sticamente cuando su padre la env�a a Kabul a casarse con Rashid, un hosco zapatero treinta a�os mayor que ella. Casi dos d�cadas m�s tarde, Rashid encuentra en las calles de Kabul a Laila, una joven de quince a�os sin hogar. Cuando el zapatero le ofrece cobijo en su casa, que deber� compartir con Mariam, entre las dos mujeres se inicia una relaci�n que acabar� siendo tan profunda como la de dos hermanas, tan fuerte como la de madre e hija. Pese a la diferencia de edad y las distintas experiencias que la vida les ha deparado, la necesidad de afrontar las terribles circunstancias que las rodean, har� que Mariam y Laila vayan forjando un v�nculo indestructible que les otorgar� la fuerza necesaria para superar el miedo y dar cabida a la esperanza.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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 thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love.

After 103 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and with four million copies of The Kite Runner shipped, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel that confirms his place as one of the most important literary writers today.

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.
