Elie Wiesel’s Night and Dawn

Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night, went from #56,439 on Amazon’s BestSeller list to #21 in one day. It’s now at #1. Why?

It’s Oprah’s next book.

The copy everyone’s buying

The one I recommend.

What’s the difference?

Well, you’ll pay about $4 more for mine, but you’ll get the entire trilogy: Night, Dawn, The Accident. It also won’t have the “Oprah’s Book Club” stamp on it.

As eloquent and as important as Night is (and a great choice for Oprah), Dawn packs an equally disturbing emotional wallop. And some could argue the questions raised by Dawn are more timely today. What makes one a terrorist or a freedom fighter? If you were assigned the duty to kill someone, for your country/cause, would you want to get to know that person first?

The Accident? Not nearly as powerful as the other two. Not bad either. But both Night and Dawn together are easily worth the price alone.
