Night Intro

Night is a novel by Elie Wiezel (why-zell) about a Jew in a WWII concentration camp.

The protagonist is Eliezer.  Know the difference between the character and the author. The book is reflective and very sarcastic without being blatant.   He takes his emotions out so you can put in your own.

Wiezel uses time very interestingly in Night.  He flashes forward and back, coming up for air on occasion and then plunging back into the story.  He is able to do so without the story feeling clunky.

Read 22 pages tonight.
