Journal Entry 1 by miertje from Houten, Utrecht Netherlands on Monday, November 24, 2008 Review
Few stories offer more warmth, wisdom, or generosity than this tale of two boys, their fathers, their friendship, and the chaotic times in which they live. Though on the surface it explores religious faith--the intellectually committed as well as the passionately observant--the struggles addressed in The Chosen are familiar to families of all faiths and in all nations.

In 1940s Brooklyn, New York, an accident throws Reuven Malther and Danny Saunders together. Despite their differences (Reuven is a Modern Orthodox Jew with an intellectual, Zionist father; Danny is the brilliant son and rightful heir to a Hasidic rebbe), the young men form a deep, if unlikely, friendship. Together they negotiate adolescence, family conflicts, the crisis of faith engendered when Holocaust stories begin to emerge in the U.S., loss, love, and the journey to adulthood. The intellectual and spiritual clashes between fathers, between each son and his own father, and between the two young men, provide a unique backdrop for this exploration of fathers, sons, faith, loyalty, and, ultimately, the power of love.

Wat een prachtige boek!
Chaim Potok is een geweldige schrijver.

My goodness, a second book from miertje! Thank you very much indeed, I have read a few by Potok, and really enjoyed them, but I haven't read this one yet. Looking forward to it!

Edit 17/03/12: And it didn't disappoint. A truly wonderful story, I very much enjoyed it.

Een Potok kan ik niet laten liggen.
Mee naar huis en deze gaat in mijn permanente collectie.
Ik had het boek al eerder eens gelezen in het Nederlands en wil het graag nog eens lezen; nu dus de engelse versie.
