Elie Wiesel tells the story of his childhood; touches upon his life in the concentration camps; and recounts his subsequent efforts and successes as a writer, journalist and novelist. Wiesel tells the story of his life, dreams and explorations in a quiet, even voice. His European accent adds a rich flavor that would be missing if another had read this tale. Background music accents the dramatic events in Wiesel's life. Heart- and soul-rending, the narration fits the tale perfectly, bringing tears to the eyes of the listener. Unfortunately, the abridgment, while not affecting the story, does a great disservice to the life and memories of this influential writer. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 97]
