Who'd a thought it? A book written in the first person by one A. Hitler.
It seems he didn't shuffle off this mortal coil after all, he was only sleeping. He wakes up in Berlin in 2011, not a day older, but hey, just go with it.
Some of 21st Century life he find's baffling,,but he picks it up quickly enough, and it's clear that the world needs him again, and yep, he's ready and willing.....
But, those around him think he's the best Hitler impersonator ever - they see him as a comedian who truly 'lives' the part. Meanwhile, he's just being himself. What's interesting is how plausible and reasonable some of his pronouncements appear. And his 'thoughts' too.
I've given it 4 stars not 5 (4.5 if I could) because (spoiler alert!) ....
....no-one twigs that he's serious / challenges him. One or two get close, but he's allowed to get away with it every time. Obviously the story would pan out differently if they did get it, and the author clearly wanted him to get away with it,...but I wanted to see how the author would handle the dialogue at that point of discovery, e.g. if the journalist got it....... but I guess it's ultimately more scary this way.
'Cos yep, he's back!!
