Eclectic Readers Group
“A Thousand Splendid Suns” by Khaled Hosseini is the Readers’ selection to start off the New Year. The Guardian’s review: “Anyone whose heart strings were pulled
by Khaled Hosseini’s first, hugely successful novel, The Kite Runner, should be more than satisfied with this follow-up. Hosseini is skilled at telling a certain kind of story, in which events that may seem unbearable—violence, misery and abuse—are made readable. He doesn’t gloss over the horrors his characters live through, but something about his direct, explanatory style and the sense that you are moving towards a redemptive ending makes the whole narrative, for all its tragedies, slip down rather easily.” Conversation and brown bag lunch, followed by discussion starting at approximately 12 noon.
