I decided to read Dawn as soon as I finished Night because I was interested to see what Wiesel was like as a fiction writer – and it was less than a hundred pages long. While I didn’t think the writing was particularly spectacular in Night, I appreciated it for its historical significance. Mr. Wiesel continues to do a great service to us all by doing his best to educate people about the Holocaust.

Dawn was worth the read. The writing was much more enjoyable and the characters were richly developed. There was an interwoven theme about the history that goes into making a man, the implications of murder, and the mindset of a terrorist that I found fascinating. It is set in Palestine under Britain’s rule; a period of history that I don’t know much about, so that was an added bonus.
