A Thousand Splendid Suns

This book is about love and war, about self-sacrifice and devotion, and about the power of women. For all its seriousness, the book gives us hope  as light as a feather; a hope that everyone will be okay — the characters, the reader, and all of us.

Love in the Time of Cholera

Is it possible that a person, having fallen in love in their youth, will carry it always and forever? Will this love guide all of the person’s actions? Yes, it will. Years will go by, the boarders will   change, and you will still love her. Or him. Because there’s nothing more difficult — and at the same time easier — than love.

The Gadfly

This book is not only about love; it’s also about friendship, mutual understanding, growing up and making a choice. The revolution   grippedItaly,   and life became too hard to love someone. On one hand, love gives us strength. On the other, it ties our hands. The book is full of light and the bitter sadness of unrealized dreams.   People say almost everyone who reads it cries. There’s so much   recognizable emotion hiding between its pages.
