Book Overview

Not since Albert Camus has there been such an eloquent spokesman for man. --The New York Times Book Review

The publication of Day restores Elie Wiesel's original title to the novel initially published in English as The Accident and clearly establishes it as the powerful conclusion to the author's classic trilogy of Holocaust literature, which includes his memoir Night and novel Dawn. In Night it is the 'I' who speaks, writes Wiesel. In the other two, it is the 'I' who listens and questions.

In its opening paragraphs, a successful journalist and Holocaust survivor steps off a New York City curb and into the path of an oncoming taxi. Consequently, most of Wiesel's masterful portrayal of one man's exploration of the historical tragedy that befell him, his family, and his people transpires in the thoughts, daydreams, and memories of the novel's narrator. Torn between choosing life or death, Day again and again returns to the guiding questions that inform Wiesel's trilogy: the meaning and worth of surviving the annihilation of a race, the effects of the Holocaust upon the modern character of the Jewish people, and the loss of one's religious faith in the face of mass murder and human extermination.

   Hero--A Piece for Thinking
One of my heroes is Wiesel. This is a great piece to make you think, me. Like some others who escaped the Holocaust, reading his work makes me think. The horror of what the Nazis have done will never be forgotten with voices like his to remind us of the extraordinary evil and the incredible insight and humanity of those who have fought and/or survived the genocides. I hope that the world becomes more successful in not letting something like this happen again. The first step is to recognize genocide, human mutilation, rape and other violation of genital rights of girls and women everywhere. Because of the beginning of time, the subjugation of women and the abuse and killing of women and girls is unsurpassed in number and horror.
   Elie Wiesel is extremely credible
I can 't say that I enjoyed these books, as I don 't see any enjoyment in reading a Holocaust story. The first is Elie Wiesel's story and is a true story. God was good to him in having him in the right places at the right time, so that he escaped being assassinated in the camps. The first book is well written and ended in the joy that he escaped. The second and third books deal with the subject as historical fiction. The truth is told well in the fictional characters. These books moved faster than the first, although that is not a criticism of the first book. I recommend these books if you are interested in knowing more about this terrible time in world history. Mr. Wiesel has lived a courageous life and kept this part of our history alive for those of us who have no real comprehension of the terror and evil of that period. I '' ; I.e.
Though all three sections of the book are massively different from each other, the reader is drawn by his use of words into the depths of the writer's soul.
   Gut-Punching Emotion
Wow, I was there. Though I had not read the previous books in this trilogy, it did not seem to hurt the story and I enjoyed it a lot. Well, I don 't know if enjoy is the right word. Every time I saw the cover, a feeling of dread came over me, and my mind came with ten other things I could do just then. I pushed it away, then binged it up, forcing starvation. I groaned and fretted over it. In the end, though, I can 't stop reading it and I come away feeling glad that I picked it up. The emotions in this story are so raw and the experiences of the narrator are heart-breaking. I saw the horrors of that concentration camp with him and had my family, too, torn by war and time. I loved it all the time and hated the narrator. I definitely recommend this book and read the previous two in the trilogy as soon as I can find the time for them.
   Builds to nothing but it still haunts us after we are done
There is not much to this novel, but it is effective when you finish it. When I finished reading the book, I thought about what really happened, what was the point of the book and I came to a cunclusion, it is about life and how a memory will haunt you the rest of your life, if we can forgive God and see if we live in God. Not much ahppend through out the book, I enjoyed the Hollyost flashbacks. Overall, it is not as good as night and I havent read dawn yet so i can not say, but it is enjoyable.
   Elie Weisel fan
Elie is such a powerful writer... or is it that the topics he writes about are powerful? I have not yet read this book, but after reading Night, I have no doubt that the book will be a life changer.
This second book of the trilogy kept me spellbound throughout the entire time. Afternoon replaced the morning as I couldn t put it down!!! Play It Now! ''
   Day: A novel by Elie Wiesel
Though it was very depressing, I found it very well written, mainly because death was so often mentioned. It was also interesting that some dead people showed up to the protagonist.
   An authentic account
Didn 't take me as all that great of a read, but still significant in a sense of illuminating how much we can take Naivley for granted a God who loves us when we have not been through so many of the horrors that life has presented to others. I notice that he does not deny God or love. Their existence, but his perception of each is markedly different from what society and many popular religions purport today. And of course, they spread a message different from his experience, his is a hard life to live each day. As it says in the book, it is the burden of the living to suffer because they are free, yet the dead are free from suffering. Therein resides a tenacity, a resiliency of which I hope never to know.
   Captivating! Powerful read.
I enjoyed reading the three books in this series and I read them all. Elie Wiesel is a kind of magician. When I look at this man's talent, what he shared with the world... with his powerful, gifted writing, it makes me wonder how many others like him who were lost during the Holocaust and could have brought something meaningful to this world we live in. Terrible because we would not have any writing if it claimed Elie Wiesel as well. But would he have had the catalyst to share his gifted writing with the world if it hadn 't happened the way it has? Who knows? However, I really enjoy reading his books and this one is no exception. HIGHLY recommend ANYTHING he has written, because I enjoyed reading everything I have thus far from him.
