A ‘Splendid’ Read Indeed

kite.jpgI don’t know how many times I’ve been at River City Books and heard a customer walk in an ask an attentive bookseller: Do you have the next book by the author of The Kite Runner? The folks at RCB always have had to pat the kind soul on the back and break the bad news because, well, one hasn’t been published. But that’s changing — and soon.

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini will be on the shelf later this month. Click here if you’d like to re-order the follow-up effort from what has been a huge seller at River City and a book that has sold several million of copies nationally.

Mrs. Raven recently read a galley copy — advance copies sent to booksellers — of “A Thousand Splendid Suns” and simply loved it. Though it’s no sequel to “The Kite Runner,” she said she might have taken even more from this book than she did from the last one. The writing is absorbing and the story so consuming that she devoured it in a weekend. No, we don’t get out much.
