    Elie Wiesel is one of my favorite authors. I read Night last year for a class and fell in love with his writing. It's set up in such a real way that it's almost like the author is talking in the room directly to you. Elie Wiesel is one of my favorite authors.

    This was a very challenging emotional read that made me want to stop and think for hours yet at the same never put it down. So many books have been written about the Holocaust but nothing compares to reading the personal testimonies of the people who actually lived through it.

    Elie Wiesel(author of the Holocaust classic "Night") posits musings and selections from his journal in this easily read book. Haunting. Recommended.

    Though I claim no religious affiliation, I can't deny my lineage. Eli Wiesel makes me feel connected to all that when I read him. (Moreso than I already do. Hence my extensive list of Holocaust/WW2 literature) He is completely accurate in describing a collective consciousness of sadness among Jews. This book also went on to illustrate how horribly post-war Holocaust survivors were treated by the rest of the world. Not to mention how the rest of the world treated them mid-war.

Speaking of Celan gave me chills.

    This is one of those books that's hard to read all at once. After reading this I feel like everyone trying to understand the continuing Palestinian/Israeli conflict needs to read it for some perspective. That includes today's Israelis because after reading this I think they've lost track of the original desire. This is one of those books that's hard to read all at once.

    this book of essays is perfect "pick up a read a bit" book. and really, wiesel is beyond what my small opinion and words can express. read him if you never have, doesn't have to be this book--he's got plenty of good choices, you don't have to be Jewish--i read him before i ever converted, that just makes it more special for me, just read him. this book of essays is perfect "pick up a read a bit" book. and really, wiesel is beyond what my small opinion and words can express. read him if you never have, doesn't have to be this book--he's got plenty of good choices, you don't have to be Jewish--i read him before i ever converted, that just makes it more special for me, just read him.
