    Intertwined Individuals

    In his "Night" Trilogy, Elie Wiesel explores a lot of the human psyche - and he does not fail to do so in this book either. The lives of five characters are pulled together in a stranger's house, and each character's background is slowly brought forth. At some points the characters' stories get slightly dull, but destiny, metaphysics, and personal significance are all touched upon. However, it is hard to tell just what exactly the book is a metaphor is for - the characters, the situation, and the judges are a bit hazy and left me intrigued, but also a bit confused. All and all, I would recommend this book, but do not expect the same drama and emotional impact that many of his other books deliver.

    interesting concept

    I just finished reading night, Then saw judges on the book shelf. This is the most different kind of book I read. and loved the book though for the concept. I have a feeling that Elie Wiesel, who I have great respect and love.I cant describe it but if you are a religious Jew you will underrstand at the end. In jewish thought we have no right to judge and no one has the right to judge you only god. The book was slow but you have to savor up to the end. But I loved it.

    Wiesel presents a gripping tale from the first page.

    If your quest is mystery, this is it -- via the enfolding of this gripping story and the characters portrayed. As a bonus, there are philosophies expressed by several of the characters that provide challenges to our way of thinking of the meaning of life. Re the latter,with the High Holidays coming in a few months, this book makes for timely reading as an exercise in reviewing our personal thoughts.
