"Look Who’s Back," by Timur Vermes

Novel, 2012

A book about Hitler’s exploits after the Fuhrer wakes up on a patch of ground in Berlin in 2011. This is a confusing and frustrating book, translation or both; the early scenes and situations flicking too awkwardly between those where Hitler realises nearly 70 years have passed since his incarceration in his bunker to those where he forgets. The satire picks up as the book goes along and delivers a cautionary tale – it just doesn’t seem particularly well written, which dampens its impact.
