Tapi hari ini, di detik saya mengetik posting ini, saya lagi kepingin buku seorang Khaled Hosseini (aih berima loh #halah)
And The Mountains Echoed
Blurb di TBD:
So, then. You want a story and I will tell you one...Afghanistan, 1952.
Abdullah and his sister Pari live with their father and stepmother in the small village of Shadbagh. Their father, Saboor, is constantly in search of work and they struggle together through poverty and brutal winters. To Abdullah, Pari - as beautiful and sweet-natured as the fairy for which she was named - is everything. More like a parent than a brother, Abdullah will do anything for her, even trading his only pair of shoes for a feather for her treasured collection. Each night they sleep together in their cot, their heads touching, their limbs tangled.
One day the siblings journey across the desert to Kabul with their father. Pari and Abdullah have no sense of the fate that awaits them there, for the event which unfolds will tear their lives apart; sometimes a finger must be cut to save the hand.
Crossing generations and continents, moving from Kabul, to Paris, to San Francisco, to the Greek island of Tinos, with profound wisdom, depth, insight and compassion, Khaled Hosseini writes about the bonds that define us and shape our lives, the ways in which we help our loved ones in need, how the choices we make resonate through history and how we are often surprised by the people closest to us.
Seumpamanya saya nekat beli atau ada yang dengan suka cita mo beliin (siapa pula!) pilih cover yang mana yaa.. Hmm.. Hmm..
Saya sih suka yang edisi British dari Bloomsburry yang biru-ungu itu, selain lebih serene, juga ada bulu-bulu sesuai sama Pari yang hobi koleksi bulu burung dan Abdullah yang rela menukar sepatu satu-satunya demi memberi Pari sehelai bulu merak (so sweet ga sih ini 2 bersodara T_T).
Tapi yang edisi US juga 'dapet' ya..
Atau yang edisi bertanda tangan yang cantik ini...?
