I had to read this book for summer reading. I read the first chapter and thought that it was an awful book. I didn't want to continue reading, but I knew I had to have it finished for school. I trudged through the next few chapters and found that I actually was enjoying the book. I was captured by the Danny and Reuven characters and their blossoming relationship. I really never thought that I would enjoy this book as much as I did.

I got in to tis series by chance wanted a new book and the covers drew me now I am hooked. The fact that Zoey is torn between her boyfried Eric at the night house  and her old high school boyfriend is somethiong one can relate to wither is is a teen a young adult or even a mother of teens.I love how Zoeys betfriend coimes back to life but she can't tell any one for fear of opf not only what Nefftie may do but rejection of her freinds .It shows what all teens go through in real life. I never relized that a charter in a book could be so like people in rel life. I loved this series

The Chosen is about two boys who meet one day in New York to develop a friendship. The strange thing about the two boys is that they would have never met if it were not a baseball game. The boys come from different backgrounds, especially religion, and so it's amazing to see how they become friends.

When I first read The Chosen, I had a hard time trying to understand it. It has some terminology that requires the knowledge of the Jewish religion, and also is not the type of book that has a lot of action. It's a simple story that just looks at the lives of these two boys.

This is a timeless book of friendship between teo boys by Chaim Potok. The book hits home to all families of all religions and the universal theme of wisdom runs rampant through the book.

The book is set in a sensitive time when the stories of the Holocaust surface in the Unites States. This is truly one of the deepest and one of the meaningfull books that I have had the pleasure to read. It is a very emotional piece but everyone should once in their lifetime read this book.

What does friendship mean? How does it survive through family issues and outrage? How strangely can a friendship start? The book The Chosen by Chaim Potok explains this. The Chosen is about a Jewish boy, Reuven Malter, and his friendship with another boy, Danny. Their respective parents have different beliefs on many things, but the two boys stick together to help solve many conflicts. I enjoyed the great ideas and themes of friendship but disliked the lack of action in the book. There were too many descriptions in general, which was not to my liking. If you want to hear about this friendship, go out and read The Chosen today.
