When I read this short book I was in an anxious mood for I would move off to college the next day I was very full of my own thoughts very concerned with how things would turn out for me This book gave me pause and turned my mind toward darker topics Night started out so happily that I knew it had to take a turn for the worse As if the cover portraying a desolate youth surrounded by harsh barbed wire werent enough Id heard from several sources that this thin volume pertained to the Holocaust Id seen pictures of heaps of skeletal figures with shaven heads and been told horrible stories of the hardships of the Jews Since early elementary school we were told of the Holocaust so I thought this would be old news for me Id seen documentaries of concentration camps interviews of survivors read all sorts of short stories on Nazi brutality With all this previous knowledge Night still surprised me Elie Weisels flat portrayal of the facts was coldly shocking He didnt analyze the inhumanity of the acts he was forced to endure He didnt try to make me feel his emotions The reactions were solely up to the reader To read of how he lost touch with his god is perhaps the hardest hitting aspect Elie could no longer draw strength from his family and then he renounced his god This personal strength and self-reliance deeply affected me I dont know if we all have this solid inner core to stand on but Id like to think so
