Book Ponderings

I've been trying to get into any of Elie Wiesel's books other than Night and I have to say so far they are just all weird. I hate to say that but I'm just not getting it.  I've read several so far and they are just weird. And that is about all I have to say right now.  Just weirdness. I've finished 4 books in the past week, almost through the 5th and his was the only one leaving me just baffled.  But I'll have to assume it is just me.

Which one are you trying to read?

I just finished The Forgotten. I've also read Dawn and at least one other one. Not quite sure why they just all seem slightly weird to me. Like I said, it's gotta be just me.

Are you planning on reading Night? If you do tell me what you think.

Read it twice already. Loved it but I am weird and really get into ww2 books of that sort. Something about actually visiting Dachau and seeing it myself leaves me just in awe of what so many suffered. Some place you simply cannot visit without it leaving a mark on your soul.

I read Night asw ell and felt the same as you but I also have ALWAYS had a weird fascination with a lot of WWII stuff. Mostly the social issues, the Concentration camps, survivor stories, etc.

I have a book to send you regarding your dark night. I will put it in the box. With that said, now watch, i won't be able to find it. However, loom at Wyatt North books. He often puts an email out for a link to a free book and the books are on a Saint, or something else highly intellectual, they're all Catholic stuff too. But St. John of the Cross wrote the book Dark Night of the Soul. i believe i have a hard copy I can send you.

And when I go to Adoration this week, I will absolutely be lifting you up in prayer.
