His accent and pace of speech were pure perfection for the story and the level of emotion at which it touches a heart.
This should be required reading in history classes!
Heart-Wrenching, Breathtaking, and Intense!
Elie - You get to watch the transition of childhood to manhood, and struggling with his faith. This is the true image of most people.
Also the gypsy rabbi that foretold of the imminent danger yet no one would listen. We have messengers in our lives that try to warn us of danger if only we would listen.
Elie struggling to stay with his father.
Yes most definitely as I did not want to stop.
I have read this book twice already and will probably read it again.
It makes me sick that an entire race.of relatively intelligent people would follow an insane maniiac, but they did. Sickening... I dont have anythinv else I can add...
I am amazed about how people survive the Holocaust. I really enjoy listening to their testimony.
This is one of the most harrowing of stories that I have ever read. It’s a short book, concise in nature and very much to the point. There is no grandiose explanation of the time or of how and why, but an experience of a child who lost his family and faith.
In a few chapters, the horror of the Holocaust is explained in very intimate terms. From the beginnings of disbelief to the painful reality of chimneys and smoke, the horror is unveiled to the masses of the starving, diseased, and helpless souls of the camps. It is the terrifying truth of an abhorrent ideology against basic human goodness.
We have to be thankful for Elie Wiesel and the countless others who survived to tell such stories so we may never forget such evil.
Night was a fascinating first-hand perspective of the holocaust. Though a relatively short book, it was well worth the cost. I appreciated the inclusion of the author’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech and notes at the end as much as the story itself.
The scene in which Eliezer lost the person who brought him through the whole ordeal after enduring so much already.
I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite of my short time.
Night, by Elie Wiesel, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, is great book to read. His words are gentle, but he speaks of destiny, cruelty, disease, death. The ignorance about the diabolic nazi, the ghetto, the deportation, the cattle car, the starvation, the injustice, are still ringing in my ears, as well as to many who had read the book. I've got in touch with the book when I was a naive teen, but the audible version is much, much better.
The narration by George Guidall, at first sounded strange, hard to listen, but, when I got accustumed I reconsidered, and thought that it fitted just right with the gloomy atmosphere of the story.
The crude reality of a tragic war told by a gifted writer, and very much worth listening and never forgotten.
[If this review helped, please press YES. Thanks!]
It is so hard to put into words the horrors that were endured! I have read many books on this subject, my personal favorite is "The Hiding Place." However, I am so glad that I listened to this book. An other view of the atrocities that were committed. My heart ache and inability to comprehend the life in a concentration camp.
Never forget! This translation is terrific and George Guidall is the perfect narrator. This should be required reading for all humans. I cannot say enough but even the Nobel acceptance speech is amazing.
