"...I received a book as a present. It was Shlomo Kalo's 'The Chosen'. I read this master-piece just as slowly as I could, hoping I would never finish it. The book which is based on the Biblical book of Daniel deals with love: A love of a human being to another human being, of a man to a woman and mainly, with the love of God who is Love". Yimna Galore, Maariv, Israel.
"It is indeed an epic-like novel filled with drama and passion. Mr. Kalo weaves together the political, personal and spiritual with great skill." G. Glijansky, HarperCollins, US.
