So i've just finished reading 'A thousand splendid suns', another marvellous artwork by Khaled Hosseini. Sungguh aku tersentuh how everything was about hardship. The entire story was about torments and sufferings, that i was so eager to find out when will the rainbow or the happy ending comes. it is so not a mere story of fairytales, how one would face a little obstacle in life then be happy again. The way he unravels the awful but true difficulties the afghans faced during the soviet ruling, the war between mujahideen themselves, and later the taliban, is so compelling. The few urdu vocabs learnt from nur also helped me to engage more to laila jan and mariam jo.
I guess reading the book would definitely make one prays for peace and be grateful for whatever he or she has. O Allah, protect muslimeens in palestine, and all around the world. Conserve our imaan, and let us die in husnul khatimah.
"I'm sorry," Laila says, marvelling at how every Afghan story is marked by death and loss of unimaginable grief. And yet, she sees, people find a way to survive, to go on. (Hosseini, 395)
