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?

    "OUTSTANDING!"

    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.

    "Sad story well told"

    This was a well written and read story about a very sad subject. It was not told in a way that was too dramatic and I'm glad I listened.

    "Buy this now"

    I scanned some reviews here and I see that others have said it more eloquently than I can, but I had to post my five-star review. I just finished this and it was an absolutely stunning book. I wondered ahead of time if such a very short book would tell me anything about this time that I hadn't heard before, but indeed I've never heard anything like this. Short, eloquent, and narrated by a voice that was absolutely perfect, it packed a huge punch, and left me thinking deeply about my love for my family and for others. As the author says, no one who has not experienced something like the camps can imagine it, but the book gave me a hint of the limits of human endurance, and left me thinking about how to better love my fellows in this world. One of the best listens/reads of all time for me.

    "In the Night"

    This Novel is like no other. Although the experiences described were felt by many, each story is uniquely different. That is certainly the case for Elie Wiesel and his account of Night. I was hooked on the narrator's voice immediately. I was brought to that moment in time and felt as if I were right beside Elie and his family. The words and stories are real. He has chosen the right words to express the horror of Auschwitz. It is a master piece in its own right. The victims and survivors and their families of The Holocaust will NEVER be forgotten.

    I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.

    "astonishing"

    This book is astonishing in its ability to capture the horror of Nazi occupation and the life of the people whose lives and spirits the occupation threatened to destroy- but also a glimmer of hope that kept some spirits alive. Hard to stomach but well worth the listen.

    "Completely Captivating"

    I just couldn't stop listening to this incredible story....I found it was a memoir that was sensitively written and will no doubt be painful for many to listen to. Beautifully narrated by Guidall, it's a compulsory read so we may never forget the atrocities that occurred to so many.
