The part of the book I found to be most interesting is in chapter 4, when Elie starts loosing faith and questioning God because in the beginning of the novel Elie used to be a religious person, Elie used to pray like how he would breath and now Elie's just questioning Him. Also it made me wonder, why was God staying silent during the Holocaust, it made me wonder, was it right for Elie not to fast.
