    "I read this classic years ago and didn't even know it was meant as young adult fiction. The story of finding your own way, while staying true to traditions and an understanding of where you come from, is still relevant today."

    "Chaim Potok has many book in children's literature but unfortunately he is not famous or popular. The only reason he is known is his first book The Chosen. Read it first or read it to your kids first, if you like it, then give a chance to the The Sky of Now."

    " A very unusual book. I had a hard time reading it at times because the lighting in my room was bad but it's worth checking out. I read it twice it was so good. Lot of great info about Korea and the culture there that most people aren't aware of."
