Publisher's Summary

First published in English under the title The Accident, Elie Wiesel's third novel in his trilogy of Holocaust literature has now adopted Wiesel's original title: Day. In the opening scene, a Holocaust survivor and successful journalist steps off a curb in New York City directly into the pathway of an oncoming cab. As he struggles between life and death, the journalist recalls the effects of the historical tragedy of the Holocaust on himself and his family. Like the memoir Night and the novel Dawn, Wiesel again poses important questions involving the meaning of almost an entire annihilation of a race, loss of faith in the face of mass murder and torture, and the aftermath and effects of the Holocaust on individuals and the Jewish people.

Nothing like Night

I bought this book because I enjoyed his first book NIGHT so much. This is not an extension of it. It is another character and has a fictional twist to it. It was OK - but would not listen to it again - as I would NIGHT.

A fitting close to the Holocaust trilogy.

The Madness and Death he witnessed inhabit and infect his life and relationships. What will freedom mean to him? Will he ever attain it? “God is dead but Man is alive”.

A powerful story.

Day was my least favorite part of the Night Trilogy, but it is still worth a read. The story is of a man who struggles to love again and find happiness after such terrible suffering. The message was powerful, but it wasn't as gripping as Dawn and certainly wasn't as powerful as Night. George Guidall is wonderful as usual.

Performance is good, story is powerful

I enjoyed this book. I listened to it pretty much all in one sitting. My only complaint is that the chronology can be a bit hard to follow. Also, this book is very "literary" for lack of a better word. Even the dialogue is consistently too eloquent to be believed. Still, a great book with a powerful message though.
