New York TImes:
In the New York Times, they called the novel “A slim volume of terrifying power.” The newpaper review goes on to describe how because of Elie’s novel “Night” was one of the main reasons of why, in the early 70’s, universities and high schools started to learn and teach about the events that occurred during the Holocaust. Many different critics have most viewed this book as being the antidote or companion to the story of Ann Frank. Elie is nominated for a Nobel peace prize, as people were saying that his stories that he told were “a messenger to mankind.”
In my perspective, I would have to agree with all of the critics that were spoken about in this article. Elie Wiesel’s novel “Night” was truly a gruesome story where he watches everyone betray his or her own kind in order to survive. His stories describe the way that humans shouldn’t treat one another and that is why he was nominated for a Nobel piece prize. Overall, I think that the article and my perspective of the book fit well together as the article describes the feelings I had towards this novel.
