Book Review: Look Who’s Back by Timur Vermes

look who's back

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! It’s a fascinating experiment and exploration into today’s attitude towards politics. It pushes the limits of satire and questions who is at fault: Hitler for holding these views or the people that gave him a voice? An understanding of World War Two enhances the reading as our protagonist reflects on decisions he made and colleagues no longer alive.
