Publisher's Summary

With the coming of dawn is the coming of death for a captured English officer in British-controlled Palestine. Elisha, a young Israeli freedom fighter, is his executioner. Ordered to kill the officer in reprisal for Britain's execution of a Jewish prisoner, Elisha thinks about his past, a sorrowful memory of the nightmare of Nazi death camps. As the only surviving member of his family, he dreamt of a wonderful future in his promised homeland. But instead, he finds himself closer to committing heartless murder with the approach of daylight. Dawn presents a haunting glimpse into the soul of one man and a budding nation.

Better that DAY - but not as good as NIGHT.

This was a book I purchased because I liked his first book NIGHT. This is nothing like NIGHT - has a different character - the story line is OK - but not what NIGHT was.... It's a short read - and George Guidall is spectacular as always..

Deeply deeply felt words that pull you back and forth with the character's conflicting thoughts and seeing the real meaning and the raw consequences of war.

All over

This book could not decide if it was a story, a poem or a metaphor. Is it possible to be all three? Not in this story. I felt like the author weaved in and out of good ”sounding” word combinations instead of connected thought.

I had no idea what this book was about.

The only reason this got 2 stars instead of one is because I know this man went through horrific things in the prisoner camps. But, I have no idea what this book was about. I read the first book 'Night' but stil have no idea what this book is about. Sorry, this one missed the mark.

An interesting, short novel.

An interesting, short read/listen, from the perspective of a soon to be executioner. The inner struggle that took place within Elijah kept you on the edge throughout. I love Elie Wiesel's writing and George Guidall does a superb job narrating.

Misleading and Dull

I read Night in one sitting. I literally read the tangible book crying and sobbing. Could not put the book down. Dawn was a long drawn out 12hrs of a guy pretty much reminiscing and talking to a couple of people. It's like a "what if" kind of story. What if I joined the military. And what if I did this. Or what if I did that. All fictional. Not sure how it qualifies as a sequel. I feel like I would like to have my time back. Not worth it at all. But at least I can say I know it and speak intelligently when discussing the trilogy.
