This review is from: Night (Paperback)
I thought that the book Night was really good. The author, Elie Wiesel, told his story so well that I could picture everything in my mind while I was reading. I'm glad I read this book because it was about the Holocaust and I have learned about the Holocaust, so it was interesting to read.
The book is a true story about the author, Elie Wiesel, and his life before the Holocaust and in the Concentration Camps. He was thirteen years old living in Sighet, Transylvania when the Hungarian police set up two ghettos for the Jews. Elie and his mother, father, and two sisters were in the last group to be taken from the ghetto to the concentration camps. Elie describes his train trip and what he sees at Auschwitz. When they arrived at Auschwitz, Elie and his father were separated from his mother and sisters. After that you heard nothing more of the mother and sisters. Elie and his father spent two years at Auschwitz then went to Buchenwald. He was at Buchenwald until it was liberated.
The book is very good, but I wouldn't recommend it if you get grossed out or upset easily because there is a lot of detail in the book. If you like history and you don't get grossed out or upset easily, then I would recommend this book. If you read this book there is a second book called, Dawn that you should also read.
