Not much of a point, I guess. The whole book revolves around a young man who was raised by the parental method of silence. His father never ever talks to him directly. Whenever his father wants to tell him something, he always tells another person to relay the message even though the young man is standing right there. The "chosen" is another young man whom this young man's father thought was sent by god to fill in the whole he has created in his son's life.
