Rated 2 out of 5 by from Exile Enjoying this book, however it was never edited after it was scanned for e-book. Starting at chapter ten there are numerous typos and errors sometimes even making it hard to understand. A bit of proof reading would raise the rating greatly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pageturner The story took a while to get going, 100 pgs, a lot of background, however, I must say that Patterson did his homework. Exile is almost like a history lesson between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The plot is excellent. A pageturner once you get into it. I read into the wee hours last night just to finish!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exile Truly a thought provoking page turner. Patterson presents life in the middle east fairly having done a good deal of researching. I found there was a little too much legal banter for my liking, and I found myself skipping a bit here and there, but all in all a great story. Even though the ending was predictable, it was interesting to read the facts surrounding the where's and why's. This was an important book to have been written in order for us to understands the conflicts and hardships facing all Middle Easterners. Bravo, Mr. Patterson!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So-So... I was very very interested in this book when i first started to read it. I do not think of myself as a dumb person but i found a lot of the info piled in the book to be very difficult to follow and some very unneccessary to the story. When the author was to the point about the story at hand i enjoyed the book the most. I found the ending to be predictable and unfinishing to the build up of the store. All in all... i just liked it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could not put it down! This book as one of the best books I've read in a very long time and it's themes speak to so many different people. It's about forbidden love, politics, religion and the clash of cultures. The main moral is that you should stand up for what you believe in, and the characters in this book do.
