The last book and probably one of my favorite books I read was “A Thousand Splendid Suns”. Unfortunately, I don’t recall the author’s name. I was given this book in junior year of high school. We were currently learning about different cultures/religions and this novel was a prime example of the Afghani/Islamic foundations. I myself am also from a very conservative/religious family (also Muslim) making it easy to relate to the protagonist. And so because of this, I had created this connection.
