A good clear, basic summary of how to write an essay. Concentrates on the actual process of creating an essay rather than getting caught up in trivial stuff like grammar. Especially helpful in covering the necessary stages before actually writing -- brainstorming, outlining, etc. -- and in giving you a basic format to follow for any essay.

This is great for high school students and to an extent for Freshman in college. The contents are organized in an efficient way and the book gets to the fundamentals directly, focusing on the basics in hopes of instilling the grand idea behind the essays and what teachers look for. It's not detailed and complicated and shows a step by step process to writing essays in which all students can appreciate in my opinion. The exercises in each chapters are also a great way to get one's feet wet so to speak!

The novel Night is an autobioghraphical written by Elie Wiesel. Night is about his experiences during the Holocaust.The Holocaust is a period in time when Germans were ruled by Adolf Hitler. Hitler made the germans believe that Jews were the cause of all of their problems. They sent Jews to concentration camps where they had to work or they were killed. Women, children, and the elderly were killed because they couldn't work as well.While Wiesel was at Auschwitz he witnessed numerous deaths. He was seperated from his mother and three sisters, whom were most likely dead. His father and him were the only members in their family to remain. During his stay he once said, "How could i say to Him:Blessed be thou, Almighty, Master of the Universe, who chose us among all nations to be tortured day and night, to watch as our fathers, our mothers, our brothers end up in furnaces"(67). He began to wonder why Jews and no other were being punished. Elie saw babies being thrown into furnaces and it sickened him. "Why should I sanctify His name? the Almighty, the eternal and terrible master of the Universe, chose to be silent. What was there to thank Him For"(33). They were only fed a ration of breadand soup for dinner.For lunch they had a cup of coffee and a ration of breadfor breakfast. After a bout a year of laborious and maltreat he started to accuse God for putting them through hell. He said himself, "I was the accuser, God the accused"( ).On the Eve of Rosh Hashanal all of the Jews 'celebrated' the last day of the year. Elie said, "How do You compare to this stricken mass gathered to affirm to You their faith, their anger, their defiance(66)? After a few years all of the Jews were on the run because the Germans didn't want them to be rescued by the Americans. They were soon deported to Buchenwald. His father had gotten Dysentery and was eventually taken in the middle of the night and burned. WQhenn his father was gone he told hiself, ".....I was alone, terribly alone in a world without a god, without man"(68).
