review 1: absolutely loved Night and thought I'd love this book, but sadly it's not to be the case. Maybe it was because I carried this book around for months, hence a lot of stopping and starting.

It got more interesting in the last 50 pages or so when he started to delve into his childhood a little more with his therapist and what really happened with the character on trial, but wish it hadn't taken so long to actually start to become interesting.

Great prose as it is usual with Wiesel. Interesting plot and surprising and meaningful ending.
Very good novel about a Jewish journalist who was an infant during the Holocaust.
Not as much as his some of his other work, although also better than some too.
