Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man.Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

4.5 Heart rending story
This book is beautiful and heartbreaking. I read this book a few years ago, and it was unforgettable. My son was reading this for school, so I decided to listen to the audiobook. The narrator was amazing and the story is touching. This book needs to be read by every generation.

Old Faves in New Flavors The Hobbit Graphic Novel The novel stayed true to the book. However, I wasn't too impressed with the artwork. It could have been more attractive. Given that I've just finished reading Monstress, it is no surprise that everything else looks almost dull in comparison! ...

5.0 Lest we forget
How to rate a book like this? An unflinching retelling of the author's experience in the Nazi death camps. But also a look into a soul tortured to the point of inhumanity by the horrors and deprivations endured. A deeply impressive testimony.
