Hannah was thoroughly annoyed with the way Grandpa Will told the story. She thought it might have been interesting if someone else did the telling, but Grandpa Will's voice "buzzed like the plague of locusts, and he made sour lessons at every pause" (Chapter 3). Because of his experiences in the concentration camps, Grandpa tended to rant in fits of rage, and Hannah couldn't understand why. She looked forward to celebrating Seder again the next day with her other Grandpa, Grandpa Dan, who hadn't been in the camps and told stories between the readings with gentleness and humor.
