I was a bit disappointed in this book. After reading The Kite Runner and seeing how beautiful that book was I knew that I wanted to read this book as well. I really tried hard to not compare this book to The Kite Runner but I just couldn't help it at times. Khaled Hosseini started A Thousand Splendid Suns in the same masterful storytelling voice as The Kite Runner but just couldn't make it last throughout the book. Part one and part two of the book were great and had me hooked on the book. Halfway through the third part is where I lost some interest in the book. It seemed like Hosseini was running out of gas and tried desparately to drag the story on. I have to say that part four was my least favorite part of the book. By then I was just waiting for the book to end. Overall the book was good but not something that I would rave over.
