To avoid drinking now a days i read a lot, in the last one month i finished 5 books, 2 of which i loved very much and m sharing it with u all here....


A Thousand Splendid Suns-Khaled Hosseini. I completed this book in just 2 days, such fast and interesting it was. The author has used two different girls to narrate the story. The backdrop of the story is afghanistan before the russian invasion and then taliban ruled days. It narrates how a female still faces humiliation in every aspects of life even in this so called modern world.






Train to Pakistan-Khushwant Singh. I loved this book, not for the political reason involved with the partition which happened in 1947, The author has used some common people as his characters and narrated the chaos that happened during that time. It sort of brought back the memories of the stories my grandpa used to tell us when we were very small, how during that time he had to leave his job in Lahore and come back to his hometown...

Btw now my next book is The Kite runner by Khaled Hosseini.
