Night is such an amazingly vivid, compelling, and tragic story about the Holocaust. It’s a memoir (of a sort) about the author’s experience during the Holocaust. The author Elie Wiesel is the narrator throughout the book and explains his journey with his father as they go through the unimaginable horrors of the Holocaust.
This book is just so detailed and introduced me to more details about the Holocaust that I have never heard of before. I still can’t believe that I’m just hearing about this book now as I am very interested in historical events like the Holocaust. I feel like this book should be read just as much as Anne Frank’s Diary! It’s a very eye-opening book where the author really didn’t sugarcoat (or censor) any of the graphic events that happened during the Holocaust.
I am really glad I read this book, but it was definitely really tragic and heartbreaking (and a bit gory/gruesome) so if you don’t like those kinds of things then I don’t recommend this book for you as much. I recommend it to those who are very interested in the Holocaust and those who wish to know the dead hard truth about all the terrifying things that happened in the Holocaust.
