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...

A book to remember

This book is a must for those who have read Night and Dawn. Night and Dawn were both extremely powerful, but Day truly was the highlight of Wiesel's wonderful trilogy. A must for everyone of all faiths.

The Dawn and Day review

The books Dawn(Second book in trilogy of Night) and Day(Third book in trilogy of Night) are written by Elie Wiesel and they are both about life after the holocaust which was the worst thing that could ever happen in my opinion. Dawn is the second book in the trilogy Night by Elie Wiesel. Elisha is the main character in this book and he is actually living as a terrorist in British-controlled Palistine. The scary part is that he is ordered to kill an English officer. He can't choose between horrors of the past and dilemmas is the present. You have to read to find out what he does because I don't want to give it away. The book Day is the last book about the Holocaust by Elie Wiesel and it is a very strong ending to the three books I think. One of the main questions that Elie asks himself throughout the book is "Is it ever possible for Holocaust survivors to create new lives for themselves without remembering their old ones?" and I personaly think that it is a great question to ask yourself because it might be possible to but it is probably really hard to do that if you want to forget your past but remember people in it. All three of the books should give you an idea of how lucky you are to live in this time period and give you a strong idea of what life used to be like and what life is like for Holocaust survivors now.

Truly Heartfelt

I disagree with the other comments. Of course, this may not be for everyone. It was full of self and ramblings. I, however, felt very much connected to this story. Especially with all its confusion. I think that was the point. He wrote this story so beautifully, I couldn't put it down.


I do not agree with most of the other reviews. The greatness in this book lies Elie Weisel's ability to come so close to answering unanswerable questions. He has a perspective that none of us will ever attain. An unspeakable suffering is captured in mere words. Living is the horror, not death. The living mourn the dead; the dead mourn no one. The main character sees every aspect of life from an unnatural perspective. He cannot love, he sees death in everything, he yearns for silence, he lives in his past. We are jealous of his severance from a pitiful humanity. He is almost a true stoic. As a technical note: No, as the other reviews stated, the character did not try to commit suicide. Suicide is killing yourself. He was walking a few feet behind his girlfriend, and although, out of the corner of his eye, he saw a car speeding toward him, he did not try to save himself. This is not suicide. It is an indifference toward life. Death was his only chance for freedom. The true accident was that the doctor was able to save him.

Absolutely magnificant!

This book is good as it examins theory of god as far as medicine is concerned. It is one of my favorite books by Wiesel, and I've read 24 of them
