i've only gotten a chance to read night and dawn, but have not read day. however, that was in eighth grade, which was eight years ago. i remember them being great, but i couldn't tell you any specifics. they're fairly common though, so i'm sure someone has read them.

I've read Night, but I have not read the others. I'll be sure to do that when time permits. Thanks.

I never knew it was a trilogy. I read Night my freshmen year of high school.

To be honest, it was only okay. I wasn't horrible. The problem with it is to someone like me who reads a lot, it brings nothing new. It's another genocide survivor story, it has the same themes and the writing isn't specular. If I was to read this to a ten year old, whom doesn't know history well and doesn't read much, it would be good for said child.

thanks for everyones feedback.
i've read the back of night and, like some one said, it has that same story.
like, has anyone read The Book Theif?
that takes the same setting and story and changes it to something different.
the book thief, to be frank, is better than night [in my opinion].

:roll:

I love book theif it was a regret that i read night afterwards, i think i would have like it much more had i not already read an alternate version in the book thief.
do not mistake me each is its own book and each has its own view but in the eyes of the reader i do believe they are similar enough to have a common line and each present minor if any real difference for the other.

***Spoiler Warning***


Like I said above same story, however, I did like one thing. Night had a somewhat happy ending. He remembered what happened, when he sees the pennies being thrown, but the horrible time didn't take over life life. He still tries to live his life.

Thief is a great book. I approve.

i just recently read night, somewhat reluctantly since it didnt seem to me to be that great. obviously it will have the same theme as other survivor stories you cant really change that. but some of those type of books written by various survivors have something more to it. to me night seemed as tho he was trying to make you feel something almost as if he wanted to sell the book more rather then tell the story. i found the book by primo levi very insightful because he wrote from a philosophical and intelligent point of view rather then emotional, iv read plenty of those type of books and this one by primo levy was different more objective then subjective gave a different perception of humankind.

I have just recently read Night...in fact, I had to read the book for school..

But anywhos, I would suggest you buy the Trilogy on Amazon or Barnes and Noble or something.

Let me know how Dawn and Day are, won't you
