At the end of another weekend, just completed something worth reading.
Having got my mind into a lot of reading lately. Not a bibliophile though, but I love to read as and then whenever I get a good book.
Currently out of the three Khaled Hosseini books I’ve got,the best as far as I consider;
“The Book which disturbed my soul like never before”
A Thousand Splendid Suns.
“With the passing of time, she would slowly tire of this exercise. She would find it increasingly exhausting to conjure up, to dust off, to resuscitate once again what was long dead. There would come a day, in fact, years later, when [she] would no longer bewail his loss. Or not as relentlessly; not nearly. There would come a day when the details of his face would begin to slip from memory’s grip, when overhearing a mother on the street call after her child by [his] name would no longer cut her adrift. She would not miss him as she did now, when the ache of his absence was her unremitting companion–like the phantom pain of an amputee.”
“She wished for so much in those final moments. Yet as she closed her eyes, it was not regret any longer but a sensation of abundant peace that washed over her. She thought of her entry into this world, the harami child of a lowly villager, an unintended thing, a pitiable, regrettable accident. A weed. And yet she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. She was leaving it as a friend, a companion, a guardian. A mother. A person of consequence at last. No. It was not so bad, She thought, that she should die this way. Not so bad. This was a legitimate end to a life of illegitimate belongings.”
Enjoyed reading the Book thoroughly,amidst emotional downpour.Hope you would enjoy too.
Much Love xxx
