First published in English under the title The Accident, Elie Wiesel's third novel in his trilogy of Holocaust literature has now adopted Wiesel's original title: Day. In the opening scene, a Holocaust survivor and successful journalist steps off a curb in New York City directly into the pathway of an oncoming cab. As he struggles between life and death, the journalist recalls the effects of the historical tragedy of the Holocaust on himself and his family. Like the memoir Night and the novel Dawn, Wiesel again poses important questions involving the meaning of almost an entire annihilation of a race, loss of faith in the face of mass murder and torture, and the aftermath and effects of the Holocaust on individuals and the Jewish people.

    " Day was about a Holocaust survivor who got ran over by a taxi in New York, and while in the hospital he reflected on his past in the concentration camp. This book kind of started out boring at first, but as time went on, it progressively got more and more interesting. Also as time went on in the book, the memories got more and more deeper into thought and it really got me interested in the book, and after a while, I could not stop reading it. The book was related to Elie Wiesel's other books Night and Dawn, so I had a background as to what the book was about before reading it. I love Elie Wiesel's books because they are really good and he goes into depth about what's going on in his stories. "

    " Of course it was awesome, just like Night. And of course it made me depressed, but a must read. "

    " One of those books that you read and feel heartbroken while reading it. I felt for him as I read and continuously wished I could reach out and help. Great read and quite interesting. "

    " The last in his 'trilogy' of stories meant to catapult one ungently into the world of grief that is an often overlooked but unforgettably powerful left over casualty of unspeakable tragedy like the Holocaust. This novella in particular, previously entitled The Accident, speaks to survivor guilt. It strikes you subtly at parts and sharpy at others with investigations of the self, the ability we have to destroy ourselves and others and where we can find the desire not to, or if we indeed can.
