    1. This is a great read It would be 2 or 3 AM and I didn t want to stop reading It s engaging, unexpected and informational It gives so many different perspectives about a very true and unfortunate policy problem that most people don t even know about.

    2. I had to give this two stars because although it was very informative and revealing of our broken immigration policy here in the U.S and was full of statistics, history and policy, I found it rather a bore to read The multitude of stories of transnational love and the trials of self exile and couples and families separated by immigration policy lacked any sort of heart or real ability to move this reader I could have dealt with much less of the saga of Salgado s memoirs of self exploration and f [...]

    3. Disclaimer I bought this book via an Indiegogo campaign.This book was a unique take on the broken immigration system rampant within the United States Hoffman s journalistic style certainly shines through in his chapters the narratives are woven together well and the politics are researched quite thoroughly Salgado s perspective was certainly valuable, but after a few chapters almost seemed to border on redundancy Regardless, it was a nice read The book served as a compelling reminder and call to [...]

    4. sustenancescout 2AMOR EXILE effectively contributes to the ongoing discussion of U.S immigration issues while it also reveals how related and often very personal and painful dramas play out across the country, usually far from any border It s an important read for anyone interested in fully understanding the impact of our country s immigration policies on everyone involved.

    5. i liked the personal parts and sort of glazed over in the political legal parts But overall i learned a lot and am glad I read it What a screwed up country the US is, I m glad my home is Mexico now.

    6. The stories of love and commitment are beautiful I was surprised by my misinformation regarding immigration and marriage This adds a whole new layer to the discussion around immigration reform

    7. A personal, insightful, and thought provoking book that presents this complicated issue in an accessible manner that makes you read to the last line.
