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 Führer 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.
Customer ReviewsSee All
This book is excellent. The text flows smoothly and easily, considering it is translated from its original German. It is very satirical, but also ironically serious. It is hilariously funny in places also, but with a sophisticated humour, where you are never quite sure if you are laughing at the wrong things for the right reasons - or vice versa. Highly recommended.
Funny, then boring
What is it with publishers these days? Their authors and staff obviously know how to write good books, because I've read so many good first chapters recently. But then I'm let down by the rest of the book, which drags.
So anyway, as you've probably guessed, this is one of those books too. It starts off brilliantly, and it's a really good concept, but it descends into endless inconsequential musings. And it gets boring. It would have been better to halve the size of this book, and concentrate on making it better with a driving plot and more humour. So, overall, just download the sample and only read that, it's the best bit. You'll thank me!
