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?

    "Gripping and powerful. Don't miss it."

    I have read all kinds of WW11 books ranging from non-fiction to historical fiction. More than I can possibly count, but this book still had a significant impact on me. George Guidall does a wonderful job performing the book and it feels like Elie Wiesel is telling you his story firsthand. It is gripping and powerful. Get it.

    "Difficult material to hear about, but so necessary"

    This is a very powerful memoir that should be mandatory reading for everyone. Learn from the past so we don't repeat the horrors perpetrated on an entire people group.

    "Very moving."

    Beautiful written. A heart gripping story of the atrocities of the holocaust. I mourn the senseless loss of those sole who perished. Mr Wiesel, while you are no longer with us, I thank you for writing this book.

    "I wept"

    I had to listen to this compelling story. I kept asking how a world could not recognize this suffering and allow this massive death to happen. I want to go to the Houlcaust Museum, but I would need to carry a box of tissues through it.

    "A necessary read"

    This book reveals the disturbing events of one young Jewish man's life during the later years of World War II. I was impressed by his honesty in describing his experiences and saddened and angry to know that these could occur.

    "Life Changing Book"

    This book shook me to the core. It's concise and to the point. What happened to Elie Wiesel is difficult to accept yet his incisive narration leaves no alternative but to open your heart and mind to the horrific atrocities we are capable of inflicting on each other. I am so grateful Mr. Wiesel was willing to share his story.

    Story
    "Night"
    If you could sum up Night in three words, what would they be?

    Listen To Me!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the son admits his failings (humanity) with his father.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    The son


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    If you're old enough to remember, maybe your grandparents were there or you were taught about it in school.You never forget.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent read. I read this in high school and thought I would benefit from reading it again. Too often we get caught up in "poor me." This book helps to bring that all back into perspective.

    "should be required reading in school"

    I've always wanted to read this book, and I even have my dad's copy here in my own home, but I never got around to it. This was a great book, and it was performed beautifully. The story was written so well, I was envisioning the whole thing as the reader was speaking. This was a truly amazing story about a truly horrifying time in the history of our world.
