Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is the now-classic story of two fathers and two sons and the pressures on all of them to pursue the religion they share in the way that is best suited to each. And as the boys grow into young men, they discover in the other a lost spiritual brother, and a link to an unexplored world that neither had ever considered before. In effect, they exchange places, and find the peace that neither will ever retreat from again....

Review:

"Anyone who finds it is finding a jewel. Its themes are profound and universal." The Wall Street Journal

Synopsis:

The story of the friendship that develops between two Jewish boys in New York City.

Monika of Ms. Chan's global class, May 11, 2006 (view all comments by Monika of Ms. Chan's global class)
The Chosen by Chaim Potok will hit home and it is a book you will never forget. It is about two very different young men becoming very good friends. It was a heart warming story for me and I couldn't put it down. Potok gives you clues as to what goes on but you don't fully understand until you finish the book. This is definitely an emotion-stirring novel that you will want to read again and again. It also includes historical references to World War II and the formation of Isreal.
I loved it and found the facts very interesting. This is a book to share with family and friends.
