In seinem neuen Roman erzählt Khaled Hosseini wieder eine zutiefst bewegende Geschichte aus seinem Heimatland: vom Leid und der Ohnmacht, aber auch vom außergewöhnlichen Mut zweier afghanischer Frauen. Die unehelich geborene Mariam wird mit fünfzehn ins ferne Kabul geschickt, wo sie mit dem dreißig Jahre älteren Witwer Rashid verheiratet wird. Zwanzig Jahre später erlebt Leila, ein Mädchen aus der Nachbarschaft, ein ähnliches Schicksal. Auch ihr bleibt keine Wahl: Nachdem ihre Familie bei einem Bombenangriff getötet wurde und sie erfährt, dass auch ihr Jugendfreund Tarik, den sie seit gemeinsamen Kindertagen liebt, angeblich ums Leben gekommen ist, wird sie Rashids Zweitfrau. In dem bis dahin kinderlos gebliebenen Haushalt bringt Leila nacheinander eine Tochter und einen Sohn zur Welt. Während der Taliban-Herrschaft machen Bombardierungen, Hunger und physische Gewalt das Leben der Familie zur Qual. Die Not lässt die an sich so unterschiedlichen Frauen zu engen Freundinnen werden und ihre Stärke schließlich ins Übermenschliche wachsen. Khaled Hosseini gelingt es wie beim Drachenläufer auf unvergleichliche Weise, seine Figuren so lebendig und authentisch werden zu lassen, dass der Leser sie lange nicht vergisst.

Mariam is only fifteen when she is sent to Kabul to marry Rasheed. Nearly two decades later, a friendship grows between Mariam and a local teenager, Laila, as strong as the ties between mother and daughter. When the Taliban take over, life becomes a desperate struggle against starvation, brutality and fear. Yet love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.

After 103 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and with four million copies of The Kite Runner shipped, Khaled Hosseini returns with a beautiful, riveting, and haunting novel that confirms his place as one of the most important literary writers today. Propelled by the same superb instinct for storytelling that made The Kite Runner a beloved classic, A Thousand Splendid Suns is at once an incredible chronicle of thirty years of Afghan history and a deeply moving story of family, friendship, faith, and the salvation to be found in love. Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them-in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul-they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation. With heart-wrenching power and suspense, Hosseini shows how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival. A stunning accomplishment, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling story of an unforgiving time, an unlikely friendship, and an indestructible love.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,7, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (Lehrstuhl Fremdsprachendidaktik), course: Seminar "Young Adult Fiction," language: English, abstract: Teaching English as a foreign language means a great challenge which would certainly be answered by all English teachers in the affirmative. Today every school in Germany offers English as school subject, even the primary schools. Consequently it must be put great emphasis on teaching it accurately by taking into consideration any aspect of English language acquisition when learning it, for example the acquisition of a distinctive vocabulary, the ability to use grammar rules correctly, the ability to spell correctly, the ability to understand what is been said when native speakers talk in English which we call listening comprehension. Another very important part of learning English as a foreign language is undisputedly reading comprehension. The ability to read out correctly, to understand what is been read and to be able to work with a text effectively is not only a competence that should be concentrated on in the foreign language but also in the mother tongue. The PISA Study is a perfect proof of this which will be mentioned later on. In this paper I will try to accentuate the importance and significance of reading in the English class. In order to illustrate this I will introduce the novel A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, an American author and doctor with Afghan origins, and use it for the elaboration of the importance of reading activities in the English class. Initially I will focus on the didactic analysis which includes the reference to the syllabus. The syllabus is of course the signpost in terms of guidelines when planning the lessons, choosing age-appropriate media and methods. What role does reading play in this context? What is said in the syllabus when it comes to reading? The next

The script for the stage production of the bestselling Khaled Hosseini novel A Thousand Splendid Suns, as adapted by playwright Ursula Rani Sarma. Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate.

With heart-wrenching power and suspense, playwright Ursula Rani Sarma reimagines Hosseini's novel to show how a woman's love for her family can move her to shocking and heroic acts of self-sacrifice, and that in the end it is love, or even the memory of love, that is often the key to survival. A stunning accomplishment, this reimagination of A Thousand Splendid Suns is a haunting, heartbreaking, compelling production about unlikely friendship and indestructible love. This adaptation was first performed by the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco in February 2017.

There is a distinct and definite link between the novelistic themes presented in A Thousand Splendid Suns and those covered in The New York Times stories. With the knowledge that much of what is being written about Middle Eastern women's issues within the journalistic community is reflective of concepts presented in a specific groundbreaking novel, it can be assumed that future works of fiction will have a similar relationship to coverage of controversial and timely issues.

Research Paper (Pre-University) from the year 2013 in the subject Literature - Comparative Literature, grade: A, - (Buckswood School), language: English, abstract: The aim of this essay is to discuss the notion that the representation of female oppression in literature transcends cultural differences by looking at The Bell Jar and A Thousand Splendid Suns. In order to discuss this notion I researched background information about the representation of female oppression in literature and the different cultures represented in the texts. The essay focuses on female sexuality and the position of women in relationships as indicators for oppression in society. In order to further compare the differences in the nature of the oppression of women, other works and literary critics have been considered. Furthermore the use of literary techniques such as stylistic devices and symbolism has been examined to trace connections between the works. The conclusion that was found was that both, The Bell Jar and A Thousand Splendid Suns comment on female oppression in their cultures. The different ways of discussing and presenting the oppression were found to be due to the different contexts of composition.
