Teaser Tuesdays: “The Night Trilogy” by Elie Wiesel

Thanks to MizB at Should be Reading for hosting Teaser Tuesday! Here’s mine:

“I saw the legs running like frightened rabbits and I found myself utterly hateful. I remembered the dreaded SS guards in the Polish ghettos.” From: The Night Trilogy: Dawn, by Elie Wiesel, page 165.

Oh, if only I could post the rest of that paragraph! What a heartbreaking, and thought-provoking paragraph it is.

    good teaser; but, I tend to shy away from book about the SS and the Third Reich (too brutal and REAL, I guess)

    I say that, but this week’s book takes me to the Nazi’s, as well! (altho, my read is VERY “fiction”!) lol

    Have a great weekend, and happy reading!

  2. Betty Says:

    Oh, please post the rest of that paragraph! I’d really be interested to know what it says!

    This sounds interesting.

    I read Night — he is amazing author writing about unbelievably difficult events. My mother and brother were lucky enough to hear him speak a few months ago.

  5. Wanda Says:

    I really must read this follow-up to Night!

    I have not read Dawn yet, but I may now have to add this to my list. Thanks for the teaser!

  8. Sherrie Says:

    I haven’t read this book but it sound interesting. I just finished The Boy in The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. It was so sad! Have a great day!
