Reviews

Gr 7 Up-The Jewish enclaves of Brooklyn, NY, form the backdrop for Chaim Potok's classic novel (Fawcett, 1975) that begins just before D-Day and traces the unlikely friendship of two Jewish teens as they watch World War II draw to a close and the new state of Israel emerge. The story revolves around the evolving, and sometimes painful, relationships between these boys and their fathers, and the conflicts the young men must face as they come of age. Jonathan Davis narrates with a gentle touch that warmly conveys the book's serious, and occasionally playful, text. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

"Anyone who finds [THE CHOSEN] is finding a jewel. Its themes are profound and universal...It will stay on our bookshelves and be read again."
"It revives my sometimes fading belief in humanity. Works of this caliber should be occasion for singing in the streets and shouting from the rooftops."
"Perceptive, touching, exquisite...This is a most profound novel."
