Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: The most harrowing experiences can renew our faith in life, and Elie Wiesel's autobiographical novel does this, even as it provides an explicit and terrifying account of humanity's darkest hour. George Guidall's steady and and evocative narration works beautifully with the text. –Corey Thrasher

Publisher's Summary

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.

Night is an unmistakably autobiographical account of the author's own gruesome experiences in Nazi Germany's death camps. Told through the eyes of 14-year-old Eliezer, the tragic fate of the Jews from the little town of Sighet unfolds with a heart-wrenching inevitability. Even as they are stuffed into cattle cars bound for Auschwitz, the townspeople refuse to believe rumors of anti-Semitic atrocities. Not until they are marched toward the blazing crematory at the camp's "reception center" does the terrible truth sink in.

Recounting the evils at Auschwitz and Buchenwald, Wiesel's enduring classic of Holocaust literature raises questions of continuing significance for all future generations: How could man commit these horrors, and could such an evil ever be repeated?

    Story
    "Probably the most important book of my life."

    I am left trying to understand. Not the words or even any hidden meaning. The truth of this narrative does not require over-wrought symbolism. This narrative, the impossible account of man's inhumanity to man, is straightforward enough to gut your dreams. No, I am left trying to understand ... simply that. The man I want to be. The terrible demons in a human experience. I am left longing to understand the true nature of God and man, of heaven and endless night. This may yet be the most important book of my life. For now, it shall remain deeply haunting, moving, and bare. It is simultaneously a window and mirror to the very collective and individual soul of man. Riveting. Spellbinding. Vital. It is all of this and more. A must-ponder book. One to cherish and yet loathe in fear. Above all this, somehow I feel hope in knowing this man survived and carried with him the voice of millions now gone, but not lost forever. For in God, nothing is lost forever, I pray.

    "Lest we forget"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Night to be better than the print version?

    Yes! The reader, George Guidall, evokes our passion as he read the history of Elie Wiesel in some of the darkest day of recent history.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book that should be required reading for anyone studying the history of the 2oth century.

    "Excellent book!"

    It was a page turner in the sense that it was fascinating to get somewhat of an inside look of how the Jews were rounded up and the nieveity of what was being done, and ultimately was done. Recommend book!

    "Real, touching, and cold"

    Elie's memoir of discrediting warnings, living in Auschwitz when man has nothing to live for, and being rescued as a lifeless, hungry being stripped of humanity's intrinsic reaction of revenge is short and somber. Worth the read/listen for everyone to understand the atrocities that humans are capable of.

    "Everyone should read this book. #Alllivesmatter"

    This was a powerful story that shook me yo my core. I clung to every word waiting for more news of yet another senseless death. Hard to believe this happen not so long ago. I'm amazed at how soon we forget.

    "Nigjt"

    To comprehend unscaled horror from a child's viewpoint brings tears and sorrow to my body and soul. No man, woman or child should have to see such suffering. I admire your father greatly for suffering so much for you. Surely he longed for his wife but knew his young son still needed guidance. He did endure to the end for you. There are many on this earth who do not have even that in their young lives. Your story stays we me now forever.
