    Narration by the author added credibility to what is revealed in this book. I have listened to it several times and am impressed with the way hard to describe feelings are dealt with via metapors and analogies. I highly recommend this book. Luca

    Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional Gold Medal, Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel offers an unforgettable account of Hitler's horrific reign of terror in Night. This definitive edition features a new translation from the original French by Wiesel's wife and frequent translator, Marion Wiesel.

    Story

    Night by Elie Wiesel together with VIctor Frank's Man's Search For Meaning are two of the most important books I have ever read. Whenever I begin to feel sorry for myself, relistening to either helps me keep my life in perspective. These two men together with many of the characters described in their books give new meaning to the term "man's indomitable spirit". Mr. Wiesel was so honest about his innermost thoughts and feelings as he and his father attempted to endure the daily horrors of concentration camp life that I was continously asking myself how I would have reacted under similar conditions. Frankly, I too often found myself coming up short in my comparative predictions. Mr. Wiesel and Dr. Frankl have definitely become two role models that have made me a better man.
