If I had anything bad to say about it, it would be this: I thought the story was a bit short. If there was a sequel to the book, it would be much more satisfying.
Overall, this was a great fantasy with a unique setting, and one that I enjoyed reading. I would highly recommend this for a good read.
I really enjoyed many aspects of this book with the information on Atlantis being a neat addition. The pacing of this book was pretty good with twists coming at the appropriate times to spark another level of interest. The technology exhibited by the Gaians was great and had some very intriguing applications, especially the variety of changes the houses were capable of affecting.
There is a little something for everyone in this book. There is crime to solve, futuristic technology, young love, sports, action, intrigue, thrills, conspiracies, and more. If you pick up a copy of the book for yourself or your child (I'd guess middle school and above but I'm pretty bad at guessing reading levels) you won't regret it.
I received a copy of this book from a literary publicity agent in exchange for a review.
It's a mix of of Jetsons and Avatar, with a very futuristic touch and also very suspenseful - things get slowly reveled throughout the story. You end up finding out that not all the Gaians welcome the Chosen ones and that the utopian society is not as perfect as it seems. The story gets quite interesting when the Kleins get accused of a shocking crime.
The book made me wonder... If I had the opportunity to live on Gaia, just like Ruth, with a closet that allows me to design my own clothes and a bedroom that gets cleaned by itself, would I really be okay leaving behind all the good memories of my past and dear friends? t's an intriguing question!
A surprise ending and a very Brazilian detail at the end! I recommend it!
extraterrestrials "seeded" or influenced the first great ancient
civilizations on earth.
The Chosen Of Gaia is an interesting twist on the theme, as it
describes a world where ancient human people colonized another planet
while maintaining a complex relationship with those left behind.
This first time novel by a Brazilian playwright alternates fantastical
thrills with goofy humor and sympathetic portrayals of realistic
coming of age feelings and social dynamics.
Like the Hunger Games it aspires to cinematic pretensions, and much
like Harry Potter it's fast-paced plot line should appeal to readers
all the way from older child to young-at-heart adult.

I loved the concept when I read the description of this book, and was sorely disappointed when it turned out to be a dud. Shallow storytelling, at best. Read morePublished on July 27, 2013 by Michelle
