L'esperienza religiosa giapponese of Hitlers thoughts and the ignorance towards those coming from anyone else than Hitler himselfOr just thene who s regarded as someone elseBut f course people can lie So what does the book sayHey book is your author a Nazi Book Are you fucking kidding meSorry book I just had toWith all I have stated above does anyone really think it s possible that the author f this particular book is a Nazi Can you really think that someone who shows how Hitler would be very willing to exterminate at least a few millions Bad Land ofur fellow citizens who are Lettere: 1942-1943 of foreign descent that someone who warns us to be careful forur fellow human beings all L'ipocrisia dell'Occidente.

look if everything s allrightHitler Yes I m all right 45 starsI can guess what you re thinking That cover is that And then But it says it s funnyI can see from somether reviews and comments around that this is appalling to some that the concept Goodbye Marianne of a comedic book aboutne The Maxx: Maxximized Vol. 3 of the most evil men who ever lived is abhorrent I can understand that But I also think that comedy and satire in particular has a great dealf value in making us think about situations and people in ways we might not have beforeI imagine a few people like me will consider themselves irreverent and try this because Il cacciatore of the shock value I know I saw the fantastically simple but instantly recognisable cover and was sold Thing is this isn t written for its shock value At least I don t think that s it s major point It s not disrespectful It s certainly not cheap laughs and stereotypes This is a well thoughtut witty and very relevant satire The Unscratchables on modern lifen the media Therapy onur The Hug own sensef humour At times it s frightening how like sheep people can be were then still areWe have to take The Resurrection Tree and Other Stories one giant leap for it to work Adolf Hitler from 1945 suddenly wakes up in modern day Germany We never findut how even he doesn t spend too long uestioning To immerse yourself in what happens after you just have to accept it Initially disorientated he doesn t let his unfamiliar surroundings faze him for long A kind hearted newspaper seller takes him under his wing and is the first Autostop con Buddha: Viaggio attraverso il Giappone of many to see the F hrer as a fully in character comedy impersonator Soon TV producers come calling and a slotn a comedy show beckons What was Speak the Ocean once a hypnotic despot is now a hypnotic comedy performer Is this the point That we cannly laugh at the ravings Newark's Little Italy: The Vanished First Ward of a madman now now thatur society would not take him seriouslyHowever much the F hrer rants raves and talks politics his new contemporaries applaud his brave comedic insights into the current world climate and his witty utlook f Germany s past It s something you think you might find appalling After all this is Adolf Hitler But even the Jewish uestion is well handled I was worried about that Of course racist sentiments are spouted by Tolstoy Lied: A Love Story our protagonist and we never ever feel sympathy for him but with the first person perspective and everyone constantly reminding him that as a comedy topic the Jews are no laughing matter and Hitler agreeing that they are absolutely right the author gets away without making his leadverly repellent as a fictional F hrer you do keep wanting to see what will happenThe modern world finding Hitler a comedy genius is itself pretty funny as we are meant to find it in some ways it is frightening can we not see Evil in front Second Sight (Circle of Three, ofur faces It does say a lot about the world today that we would very likely find this kind Strife of thing post modern ironic and thinkurselves very witty for declaring it so How clever are we that can laugh at his comedic genius In many ways this makes us no different to the many who followed blindly back in the 20s and 30s Which Only a Few Bones: A True Account of the Rolling Fork Tragedy and Its Aftermath of course makes it all the funnier in the book Hitler s speeches are hilarious at times hisld trademark style Baby Colossus (Short Story) of speechmaking hisld speeches and phrases themselves used but to a vastly different audience But maybe not such a different Roy Al one in many respects Gullible in a different way I did think reading this if a man appeared claiming to

Panzer Baron: The Military Exploits of General Hasso von Manteuffel one scene when Hitler gives a speech though I m not certain I believe it s a direct copyf a real Apple Training Series one he gave

generational thing There s been a rather heated argument with anlder female reviewer Let It Be Love (Effingtons, of this book and I figured I d ask my grandparents about theirpinions Daniel--Malachi on the book My grandmother was born in 1937 in northern Germany my grandfather 1933 eually in nothern Germany As my grandpa was at that pointld enough he had had to join the Deutsche JugendGerman Youth the group you entered before you entered the Hitler Jugend They send me a letter and I will directly translate what my grandma wrote I am sorry but I couldn t warm myself up to the book albeit being amused sometimes I can imagine that it s like that for anyone who comes back into Love is Like a Hurricane, Volume 01 our world after 66 yearsThe arguments about certain people inur country have disgusted me so much that I have not ended the bookAN I assume my grammy links the character s Advertising Copy opinion with the author spinion I hope most f you don t make that mistake Then grandpa read it and well you see in the addition what he thinks about itI am born in 1937 and know the story nly by having it told to me for which I am gratefulI hope that you forget it soon and that you can engage yourself with nicer subjectsWell yeah not really eh D And now for my grandpa s thoughtsIt s so cute he even added a subject title at the beginning Ah Swami Vivekananda in America: New Findings

of all timeGr faz is ironically used mostly At least I never heard anyone not using it for mocking purposes and it s fun yeah Adolf Hitler was in the timef 1924 1945The book is written humorously in some passages but Cowboys Indians only understandable ifne shoves the gruesome events during the leadership Mac Detective Series 04: The Mean Streets of the Nazis asideAN Grandpa spinion Lonely Hearts obviously I disagree This in turn insults in the most awful way that partf the people who were directly r indirectly affected by the unimaginable schemes Even today there are survivors who can report n this convincingly I am convinced that this book at best had never been written The Good Earth (The Good Earth Trilogy Book 1) or after heavy editing measures in many parts separated serve as a

young to remember anythingborn in the 40s and for second I can t just walk around asking lder people to read this book and if I did so with my landlady I m not so sure if that would end wellIt stays however that An Apple A Day: Health in Every Realm of threelder people who have come across this book ne dismissed it almost instantaneously and the ther two tried to read it and gave up somewhere midway through And also they have given almost the same reasons as to why they did so Which I understand really since yeah that generation is far likely to be so Cairo opposed even towards a satireBut that brings up what is in my mind so important with the author and manyf the readers We are not from that generationWe are younger We nly know about the events by history lessons because no people don t talk about it in their families I grew up without knowing that a man named Hitler ever existed had it not been for school lessons I wouldn t have known Which again brings up a point We need to STOP the silence We need to adress those issues The wounds have mostly healed the current young generation is far enough apart from this history to still feel connected to it and therefore to feel the duty to think about it while being far enough apart from it to not have the emotional ballast f the Il fuoco della redenzione older generationWe are now We are reflectingn Když duben přichází ourselves And we are not silent sorry grams This is a very difficult book As much as I would like to give it a humorous review I can tSo let s start from the beginning What do we know about the plot Hitler wakes up in modern Berlin in the summerf 2011 is uite confused at first but as he so proudly points El Supervivient outRepeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly he s the kindf guy who s so focused Desiderio conosciuto on achieving his goal that he ignores the fact that 1 heughta be dead 2 he traveled through time He goes Willoughby and the Terribly Itchy Itch on exploring the new world and gets a careern TVNow the very premise يوميات هيروشيما of this work does turn many peopleff immediately I have seen that uite ften both in private discussions and reviews but also in interviews commentaries by journalists and in ne german talk show The uestion many people ask is this Is this book pro Hitler It Raised from the Ground often is paired with another uestion Is the author a Nazi01 Is this book pro HitlerIf you ve read the blurb you could say Maybe If you ve read the book you should say No Because it s very very direct in that aspect In fact it s so direct that the very fact that Hitler is not a cuddly neighbours dog jumps in your face with rocket speed and breaks your noseDon t be mistaken It is not impossible that this work brings across the wrong message But mind you this needs something to already be there in the reader Pro Nazi sentiments Anti semitism Racism Ignorance towards logic and empathy Still That is not the faultf the author Also those cases are the minority I am not making this up pretty much every reaction towards this book can be categorised in two ways 1 Oh God it s Hitler I hate it The Reason for Roses or 2 This is satire criticism and a well deserved warning against Nazi ideologyWhat I essentially want to say is this If it so happens that someone gets the wrong idea then that s not the author s fault simply because he made it so apparent that you should not like the protagonistLet s take a closer look So there are jokes involved There s humour in many things Hitler does and gets confronted with Try to cut that allut nobody would read it Seriously Vermes managed to grasp Hitler s style so wonderfully it could be Hitler himself writing were it not for the lesson in it Have you dear readerAnd I know you re reading this ever tried to read Mein Kampf I tried I failed It s just unendurable No kidding a law textbook reads like a children s book compared to that The sane mind cannot endure Hitlers very The Failure of Evangelical Mental Health Care: Treatments that harm women, LGBT persons and the Mentally Ill own book for longer than a paragraph Trust me I triedDoes the humour in this book make Hitler look good It doesn t make him look bad I assure you until he says something misogynistic racistr anti semitic right after thatAn example There s a point where Hitler complains about the Selections from Science Fiction

La realtà dell'immaginario of the book that show Hitler s reaction to contemporary society are in fact uite funny He s appalled by the profusionf newspapers purveying mindless dribble Television that splendid propaganda tool shows gardening shows and melodramas Mobile phones the internet and chain stores are all developments which a transplant from the first half The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 1 of the twentieth century finds wondrous and monstrousBut as the book goesn you realise what Vermes is doing You ve started to like Hitler He s a stroppy avuncular highly articulate tee total

als h tten damals einige berzeugte zum letzten entschlossene Nationalsozialisten ein ganzes Volk bert lpelt Und das ist nicht ganz falsch es hat diesen Versuch in der Tat gegeben 1923 in M nchen Doch er ist unter blutigen Opfern gescheitert Die Folge war ein anderer Weg 1933 wurde kein Volk mit einer Propagandaaktion berw ltigt Es wurde ein F hrer gew hlt auf eine Weise die sogar im heutigen Sinne als demokratisch gelten muss Es wurde ein F hrer gew hlt der in unwiderlegbarer Klarheit seine Pl neffengelegt hatte Die Deutschen haben ihn gew hlt Ja sogar Juden Die Partei hatte damals schon vier Millionen Mitglieder Und auch das nur weil ab 1933 keine weiteren Mitglieder mehr aufgenommen wurden Es h tten 1934 auch acht Millionen zw lf Millionen sein k nnen Ich glaube nicht dass eine der heutigen Parteien nur ann hernd diese Zustimmung genie t Es gab entweder ein ganzes Volk von Schweinen Oder das was geschehen ist war keine Schweinetat sondern der Wille eines VolkesToday you like to portray things as if back then a few utterly fanatical Nationalist Socialists duped an entire people And that is not entirely false in fact that attempt was made In Munich 1923 Yet it failed in a bloody martyrdom Conseuently another way was taken In 1933 no people was Anarchist Education and the Modern School: A Francisco Ferrer Reader overpowered by a propaganda action A leader was elected in a manner which even now would be considered legitimate democratic process A leader was elected who setut his plans Murder's No Votive Confidence openly with crystal clarity The German people elected him Yes even Jews The party at that time had 4 million members Andnly because from 1933 no further memberships were accepted It could have been 8 million 12 million by 1934 I do not believe any More Secondary Starters and Plenaries of the parties today enjoy anything near such popular support Either there was an entire peoplef swine Or what happened was no swinishness but the will Champagne Kisses of a people As the book closes Hitler is beginning to establish a new mass movement As allver the world the political centre Doodles Unleashed: Mixed-Media Techniques for Doodling, Mark-Making Lettering of gravity drifts to the extreme right this is a warning we would do well to heed I read an excerptf this book and I talked at length with someone who has read half It's Wrong for Me to Love You, Part 2 of it before tossing it with disgustThis book may read funny but to make a somewhat likable comic figuref the most cruel mass murderer the 20th century has seen is not Dreamseller only tasteless but dangerousShamen anyone who writes a positive review Apothecary Melchior and the Mystery of St Olaf's Church on this book Shamen anyone who buys this book Grave Expectations or asks for

they ever Tia Júlia e o Escrevinhador owned The murdererf all these people is not a comic figureLearning that this book has become a bestseller in Germany makes me ashamed The Aftermath of being German PLEASE NOTE This review was also postedn in October 2013 rejected it stating that it did not meet s regulations and guidelines When I asked which changes were reuired to make this review meet regulations and guidelines replied after When It All Falls Down one week apologizing and saying that the rejection had been a mistake then published this review without changes However in spring 2014 when the English versionf the book came n the market removed my review without notifying me I have so far refrained from writing and posting a castrated version f my review UPDATE Dec 19 2014 I have just posted an entirely new 1 star review Fantastic Four on I will see tomorrow whetherr not has accepted itUPDATE Dec 20 2014 My review n went live today It reads as follows10 ut The Devil's Elixirs of 5 stars 70 million dead are soooooo funny Come to thinkf it my 1 star review Stolen by the Highlander of the book which took down when the English versionf the book came Miss Prim's Untamable Cowboy out has indeedverlooked some My Friend the Boogeyman of the book s merits Howbtuse must I have been to Chobits Art Book: Your Eyes Only overlook how the younger generationsf the stupid masses could benefit from this book This book can teach them a lot So for instance1 Hitler is not a scary fairy tale figure He has really existed This is important to know particularly since it has been doubted even denied that the Holocaust ever happened From there it would be BABI YAR - A document in the form of a novel onlyne step to assume that Hitler hadn t existed either2 Hitler was not an alien He was human that s what so many reviewers Beauty Pop, Vol. 1 of the book have concluded after reading the book Besides there is documented proof that Hitler was born to a no not a virgin but to an earthly woman3 Hitler was not a monster that s again what so many reviewersf the book have pointed ut And I can confirm that Hitler had two arms and two legs and even some kind f a head he didn t have horns nor did he spit fire and he didn t even have an euine club foot Thus Hitler was lucky Because had he been deformed in any way he might have felt compelled to have himself euthanized4 Hitler was somewhat likable at least that s what so many reviewers took from this book Well I don t uite understand why anyone in his right mind might want to portray a mass murderer Longshot of unimaginable dimensions likable Yet it says in the bible to love thee neighbor And since after WWII with about 70 mio people dead let s forget about the uestionable Holocaust which manyf the readers قراصنة وأباطرة : الإرهاب الدولي في العالم الحقيقي of the book might not believe in most readers would find it somewhat difficult toutright love Hitler the author might have wanted to compromise and portray Hitler as at least likable Either that r maybe the author did not think f the bible at all but rather Il pianeta delle scimmie of the average intelligencef his potential readers and A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali of his bank account For commercial reasons it is always advisable to have a likable protagonistne that readers can relate to5 Contemporary German politicians are stupid Yet in Machinal order to learn this true fact readers could have saved themselves the expense for this book Some might have already known and those who didn t I could have told for free And notnly GERMAN politicians are stupid politicians Biostatistical Analysis ofther countries well never mind this is Caught on a Train off topic6 Celebrities are not always what the public thinks they are Good to know Yet this knowledge could also easily bebtained Der Bruder otherwise7 It isk to turn each and every mass murderer into a comic figure Having people shot blown up hanged Pruning the Fourth Branch or gassed is soooooo funny Besides humor is the best weapon for stopping evil tyrants This is how Hitler and Stalin were stopped from murdering many millionsf people Wait a moment I got a little confused here Allow me At age 75 I am entitled to a little Wait a moment I got a little confused here Allow me At age 75 I am entitled to a little fog So forget it Hitler and Stalin WEREN T stopped but they might have been stopped had people been able to read Timur Vermes s book Or maybe not Never mind Anyway it is k to write a humorous book about every evil murderer8 It is possible to make a fortune writing funny books about evil mass murderers While not every wannabe bestseller author may be successful with such a book it is at least worth a try Advice to fledgling authors Don t start with a big mass murderer
LIKE HITLER OR STALIN START SMALLHitler r Stalin start small a serial killer Bona Dea: The Sources And A Description Of The Cult or a school shooter with no less than 12 and no than 50 victims If this worksut you can always advance to bigger book you can always advance to bigger book such as making an avuncular likable protagonist Domino outf Saddam Hussain Rivelazione /2 or Nero Nero I said not Nehru stupid 9 People can return from beyond Yet here I have to admit that it was a disadvantage not to have read the whole book I don t know how it explained how Hitler managed to perform this task But I am sure that the smartestf the not so smart readers will have figured Anamorfosi, o magia artificiale degli effetti meravigliosi out a way how this could be done even though as I have heard the author did not bother to elaborate10 Someptimistic reviewers have suggested that this book might induce so far uneducated and ignorant readers to follow up with advanced reading And this may be true Mein Kampf is available here Les années d'apprentissage de Wilhelm Meister on and has huge numbersf wonderful reviews just as Er ist wieder da However for those with somewhat elevated brain function I would recommend a few A Beautiful Bowl of Soup: The Best Vegetarian Recipes other books insteadf the above mentioned For instance Hitler The Memoir Guardian of Lies of the Nazi Insider Who Turned Against the Fuehrer by Ernst Hanfstaengl Berlin Diary by William Shirer Survival in Auschwitz by Primo Levi The Reawakening by Primo LeviStill Alive A Holocaust Childhood Remembered by Ruth KluegerAnd if something humorous is desired by all means look for a different topicNote for those who are a bit slown the uptake If this review confuses you please look up the words satire sarcasm and irony Although I read this book in German there are already lots f German reviews and it may get published in translation so I ll review auf Englisch The title translates as He s Back and it s about Hitler who mysteriously reappears in Berlin in 2011 and becomes a TV star His audience apparently believes him to be some kind f method actor r nth degree Stephen Colbert character and is alternately discomfited by his unironic profession f Nazi ideals and interested in his updated ideas for example about how protecting the German homeland environment should be a highest priority which makes him a strange bedfellow Fields of Peace: A Pennsylvania German Album of the Green party Meanwhile Hitler himself remains resolutelyblivious Heroes Are My Weakness of how reviled he is by nearly everyone in the modern world which sets up many scenesf dramatic irony when his modern producers and viewers are too polite to call him My Father's Notebook outn his Limbo occasionallyutrageous statements which they believe are part The Little MongoDB Book of his act What makes this the book somewhat groundbreaking is that it s a German comedy about Hitler This doesn t feel special to Americans and British people who have been making funf Hitler since Charlie Chaplin but in my experience even when Germans do want to be funny anything around Nazism is the last place they would go rather like the German tourist who tells Basil Fawlty that his goose stepping is not funny Not for us Not for any German people That said this book isn t a straight up laugh Dormir Sans Larmes out loud kindf comedy A lot f the the time the emotion the reader experiences is the kind f cringe that The Office British version evoked so relentlesslyAlthough I enjoyed reading the novel for my The Omnivore's Dilemma: The Secrets Behind What You Eat own purposes to exercise my German and findut what all the talk in Germany was about I m not sure I d recommend this to American readers It relies From Grub Street to Fleet Street: An Illustrated History of English Newspapers to 1899 on a pretty detailed knowledgef contemporary German society its immigrants laws against promoting Nazism Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows other TV shows that I doubt many Americans are up to speedn Also much f its style stems from the author s mimicry f Hitler s Snail oratory which involved torrentsf high flown hyperbolic Oro rapace old fashioned language in this book applied to suchbservations as the fact that there are lots The Essence of Jung's Psychology and Tibetan Buddhism: Western and Eastern Paths to the Heart of Starbucks aroundr that reality TV shows are repetitive and insipid Brain Wave or that Ikea furniture is madef firewood It starts to be funny and then you realize you re being amused with Hitler and you want to stop Ultimately what made this book satisfying can Monarch only be described in German Schadenfreude It turnsut that watching Hitler lost diminished irrelevant a joke but not a good ne is a little thrilling Not everyone would agree with me but as an American I think the Germans especially f my generation are better at confronting their historical demons than we are and I m not surprised that this book both for the symbolic reason Project Duchess of finally making Hitler a subjectf comedy and for the thematic reason Darkness Everlasting of revealing the panoramaf a pluralistic German society became a bestseller there However the book ends n an eerie warning note as Hitler moderates his rhetoric to match the times and uses his power f personal fascination to rebuild a circle Worth The Trade of followers and fans. Geval heeft Timur Vermes een van de grappigste boeken van het jaar geschreven Hij neemt de media en de cynische massa genadeloosp de korrel zonder aan spanning in te boeten Slaagt Hitler gesteund door YouTubefilmpjes en vind ik leuks dit keer wél in zijn pzet. .
