I was recommended "The Immigration Lawyer: Asylum (Volume 1)" by a friend and I have to say that I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. Shah Peerally provides a uniquely compelling look into the immigration progress and the atmosphere for immigrants, drawing the reader in and helping them to see through different eyes of the struggles that immigrants face. It's well-written, vivid in detail, emotionally captivating and uses strong dialogue and narration to bring the subject of immigration into focus. The book has a distinct edge to it that never waivers from providing a poignantly brutal honesty of what those who come to this country face. From asylum to marriage petitions and more, this is the kind of novel that sheds light on a system that many people give little thought to and it really is a wonderfully dramatic story. Overall, it's engaging, fast-paced, insightful and thoughtful... well worth the read.
