Night is one of my favorite books. I read it for the first time in eighth grade (it was a rare highlight in what was otherwise a pretty dismal year at school–more on that some other time, perhaps in a future memoir?) and adored it. If you haven’t read it, you definitely should. If you have, I feel compelled to share that my favorite bit was what I term the “violin incident,” described on pages 88-91 of my copy.
Anyway, I have acquired this excellent book на русском [in Russian] and am looking forward to reading it. Wiesel’s style of writing is very easy to follow and understand, so I hope to focus on acquiring new vocabulary (that’s always the most difficult part of learning a language, at least for me).
