Day 08 – A book everyone should read at least once

Night, by Elie Wiesel. By far, it is one of the most powerful books I have ever read.

It was the second book I ever read about the Holocaust (Schindler’s List being the first) and it was something of an eye opener. History books and the The History Channel (which I never had access to until after college) only reveal so much and are sometimes dry facts. Night painted a stark and cruel reality and described a palpable helplessness. It detailed both the cruelty and strength of the human spirit.
