I might be a little weird, but I like reading things about the Holocaust and learning about WWII, and I really enjoyed (if you can enjoy such a thing) reading Elie's experiences in a concentration camp. The book was short, and he went into the concentration camp later on in the war...I was expecting more about the awful punishments and things that went on at Auschwitz, such as the gas chambers, etc. But either he didn't experience that, or he didn't write about it.
Anyway, this book was very interesting, I liked it. Didn't satisfy my curiosity about what life was like in the camps, but it was good enough to make me understand some of it.
