To say I enjoyed this book is to disregard the subject matter entirely. I think it's difficult to label what reading a piece of non-fiction on the Holocaust makes you feel. Did I enjoy the book? No. But I was totally captured by Wiesel's experience and the way he told his experience. Absolutely. Therefore this is less of a review and more, hey look what I read.
This semester I'm taking a module called Descent into Hell focusing on Holocaust testimonials, so expect a lot of discussion of this kind of literature.
Night is a very short book and one of three. I'm undecided if I will continue to read the next two, simply because I have a lot of Holocaust literature to work through over the next few weeks. I imagine in the future that I will pick them up but, not for a long while.
This, and I predict the following books I read for this course will stay with me forever. If you are wanting to learn more about the experience of Holocaust survivors I highly suggest reading Night.
