My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best].: A
Short description/summary of the book: (taken from amazon.com):In Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel's memoir Night, a scholarly, pious teenager is wracked with guilt at having survived the horror of the Holocaust and the genocidal campaign that consumed his family. His memories of the nightmare world of the death camps present him with an intolerable question: how can the God he once so fervently believed in have allowed these monstrous events to occur? There are no easy answers in this harrowing book, which probes life's essential riddles with the lucid anguish only great literature achieves. It marks the crucial first step in Wiesel's lifelong project to bear witness for those who died.

My Thoughts: I read this book every few years because I think it is a wonderful book about a horrible event that happens to millions of people over 60 years ago. I would like to get the latest edition of this book since it has been translated by Elie Wiesel's wife. I wonder if it is different from the other version.

Books read this year: 30/50. I'm 60% done!!!

Next read(s): I am about to reread The Prestige by Christopher Priest.
