    "This book is rather short, but extremely powerful. It's amazing how the author was able to summarize his "life" in concentration camps so succinctly. The emotions came through as I read it. I was sucked into his world, but yet could not imagine the true horrors of such places. Every human on this planet should read this book! "

    "Elie Wiesel's writing is powerful and empathetic, and some of the best literature about the Holocaust that I've ever read. When listing the best non-fiction books about World War II, it would be a shame not to mention "Night", if not at the very top of the least, at least near it. This is one of the best books I've ever read, let alone about the Holocaust; I highly recommend it for fans of the genre."

    "This another story about Nazis. I never get tired of stories about Nazis and the war. It's like they're the evilest people to ever live, so you really have to keep reading about how awful they were. This book really talks a lot all the bad stuff they did to the Jews, just so tragic."

    "This historical book is so real, and it describes what happened in those horror years and how people forgot about humanism and started to destroy each other, this is a real story that tell people not to repeat this cruelty anymore . "

    "Night is a great autobiographical look about Nazi death camps. It follows the story of a teenager who had survived the Holocaust and retold the story in eye-opening detail. It's an extremely interesting read and really keeps readers engaged in hearing a real-world account of how things were instead of reading from a history book. This is 100% worth a pickup!"

    "Night is a powerful book and one of the best books by a Jewish author. It is humbling, horrifying, and honest. Night is a must read for anyone wanting to know what the Holocaust was like for the Jewish people."

    "This book is chilling and tells of some of the horrors during one of the worst crimes against humanity in human history. It tells about how people can break when put under such horrible conditions, and how even the one's you should trust the most can turn their back on you in an instant."

    "This book is very graphic, so if you don't like violence, don't read this book. For me, it was a great experience reading this book. I like the setting and the characters were interesting. I'd recommend this book if you like World War II fictions."

    "Night (The Night) is a must-read among non-fiction books. The book while set during the time of the Holocaust really focuses on the bond that people create in times of crisis. I referenced the book for a class project and it really added a lot of depth to the study."

    "This is a classic which should be read by everyone. It is a crucial look at an historical event from a very human perspective. It is a brief read which makes it accessible to many, many age/reading levels. It packs such an emotional punch because everyone can relate to the main character to some degree. "

    "I first read Night when I was in high school. Although I felt the story was sad, because it was a personal account about the Holocaust, I did not fully grasp the depth of the human experience and polarity of such a horrible time in history. The struggle to survive and, later thrive, after witnesses depravity, loss and evil, speaks to the strength of Elie Wiesel's holocaust survival."

    "Set during the WW2, the story of a family surviving in the harrowing concentration camps of the German occupied Europe. This story of survivors and strangers shows a side of humanity that is compassionate, emapathetic, but also horrific and harrowing. Each member of the camp has their own unique characteristics and it's how these people band together to make the best out of a horrible situation, that shines the heroics on their plight."

    "Captivating! The description says it all. This story recounts the extreme side of humanity which may not be prevalent in today's world. If you are a human being who cares about how the world works, this is a must have for your library. "

    "Definitely a beThis book although short is packed with a powerful message. Elie Wiesel was sent to the concentration camp at a very young age and survived. At age 15, his captors told him he was 18 and separated him from his mom and sisters. This book details his life in the camp as well as surviving until it was liberated. It's a hard read, but I think it is a book everyone 16 or over should read."

    "I recently bought the book "Night (The Night)" as a birthday gift for a friend of mine because, beside the sad story treated there (the Holocaust), my friend is really interested to that historical period. In the book is described the horror of the second world war, of the concentration camps, and all the negative feelings accompanying them. Very intense one, not for children."
