A Thousand Splendid Suns

When I read a good book by a new author, I always have mixed emotions when anticipating the next book.  Because I enjoyed The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hossseini, I eagerly awaited the release of A Thousand Splendid Suns.  And, I purchased it back in 2007 shortly after it was released.  But here's the problem:  I always worry that I won't enjoy the second book as much as the first.  So, even though I had heard excellent reviews, I left the book laying on the to-be-read pile beside my bed for nearly two years.  Well, I finally picked it up...and to my delight, A Thousand Splendid Suns was even better than The Kite Runner.  I highly recommend it!
