    This short novel is powerful, at times harrowing. The writing is compressed, the tone conversational. One would not think the language capable of handling so many large themes--God, the Holocaust, Hell, Suffering, Love--that the author freights it with. Yet it is the very lightness of the language t... more...

    The last in his 'trilogy' of stories meant to catapult one ungently into the world of grief that is an often overlooked but unforgettably powerful left over casualty of unspeakable tragedy like the Holocaust. This novella in particular, previously entitled The Accident, speaks to survivor guilt. It ... more...

    Day was about a Holocaust survivor who got ran over by a taxi in New York, and while in the hospital he reflected on his past in the concentration camp. This book kind of started out boring at first, but as time went on, it progressively got more and more interesting. Also as time went on in the boo... more...

    Used this book to ease myself into reading Night by Elie Wiesel. Powerful illustration of how difficult almost impossible is it for a victim of absolute horror to recover from it.

    Not as difficult to read as I thought it would be. Now to attempt Night.

    Update after thinking ... more...

    Oh, God, why, why, why... why would someone given the option to create a fictional universe make one so... so... depressing, with seemingly no reason to it?!â€â€that's the deal you see, I can handle depressing. The Road is depressing, so depressing it actually depressed my wife. But it has a message: i... more...

    This novel was a bummer after "Night." To me, "Night" seemed to be one of those rare books who's creation was not due to a fanciful idea to create, but rather a deeply rooted need to document and process an experience. Perhaps if I read it 4 months after "Night" I wou... more...

While recovering from his injuries, he is left with time to think about his relationships during the war, and how he could possibly co... more...

    This was an interesting piece of work. The book centers around a young man who is at a crossroad in his life. He has not accepted or forgotten his past and cannot move into the future or enjoy the present. Only after he is involved in a serious accident and in the hospital for weeks is he able to ge... more...

    This is decent, but Wiesel really should stick to his non-fiction writing, like Night. He has an incredible life story that is so powerful that makes his fictional works seem a little lackluster. Day (while better than Dawn) is confusing, repetitive, and ends too "easily." I would recom... more...

    I followed the suggestion of others, reading "Night" and then "Dawn" and then this book. I did this in a relatively short time, so each prior book was still fresh for me. I am not sure how I would have felt about "The Accident" (Day) if I had read it before the other ... more...
