Look Who's Back
Lost in translation.
This book is well written and the premise is great, however, the story mainly just involves Hitlers musings on the modern world and many of the German cult... READ MORE

Great, but difficult to love
The thing I love most about a first-person narrative when it comes to fiction is the feeling of comradery you have with that character. You laugh, cry, and... READ MORE

A witty, wry, thought-provoking read
While the concept for this book sounds highly controversial and not the most obvious basis for comedy, Look Who's Back is a very readable and amusing satir... READ MORE

While I did enjoy this book and found it quite funny as well as thought-provoking, to be honest I felt it didn't live up to the hype. It's predominantly ab... READ MORE

Wow, I'm tempted to call this book genius. When you're talking about Hitler rising to fame in modern Germany you have to be pretty deft. Some things are no... READ MORE

Impossible yet imaginative
The premise seems impossible yet imaginative. Hitler is in the present, and how does one regain power in 2011? Becoming an internet sensation, of course! I... READ MORE

Synopsis

The smash-hit satirical bestseller, more than 3 million copies sold worldwide

Film a box-office hit in Germany, now available on NETFLIX

A two-part BBC Radio 4 Dramatisation directed by and starring David Threlfall (Shameless)

Berlin, Summer 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of open ground, alive and well. Things have changed - no Eva Braun, no Nazi party, no war. Hitler barely recognises his beloved Fatherland, filled with immigrants and run by a woman.

People certainly recognise him, albeit as a flawless impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable happens, and the ranting Hitler goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own T.V. show, and people begin to listen. But the Fuhrer has another programme with even greater ambition - to set the country he finds a shambles back to rights.

Look Who's Back stunned and then thrilled 1.5 million German readers with its fearless approach to the most taboo of subjects. Naive yet insightful, repellent yet strangely sympathetic, the revived Hitler unquestionably has a spring in his step.
