I acknowledge the inherent importance of these books. It's not overstating things to say that this is as important as any subject area in literature. That said, I only think one of these books is well written. 'Dawn' is a fantastic piece of literature: thoughtful, precise, wonderfully plotted. 'Night' is an excruciating read, and a very impactful one, but I don't think it's terribly well-written. (Can anything so emotionally wrought be well-written?) 'Day' just seemed indulgent. I could have done without it, but I'm glad that I read the other 2 and would heartily recommend each of them, though for different reasons.
