Has he finally met his match? Meanwhile, Hitler himself remains resolutely oblivious of how reviled he is by nearly everyone in the modern world, which sets up many scenes of dramatic irony when his modern producers and viewers are too polite to call him out on his occasionally outrageous statements, which they believe are part of his act. Wer krasse Satire und schwarzen Humor mag: Hitler’s speeches are hilarious at times – his old, trademark style of speechmaking, his old speeches and phrases themselves used but to a vastly different audience.

Yes, he portrays Hitler like a human being, like a person very close to the original. Zudem ist die Sprache einfach wunderbar. It’s not that this Hitler says the bad things. What makes this the book somewhat groundbreaking is that it’s a German comedy about Hitler. Yet his campaign of racial purification continues: Klar, auch dieses Buch geizt vor Allem anfangs nicht damit den Protagonisten in groteske Situationen zu bringen, die einen, sofern der notwendige emotionale Abstand gegeben ist, zum Schmunzeln anregen.

Review of a Netgalley advance copy. So, our most-hated-dictator ends up becoming a famous comedian. As Herr Hitler broadcasts his creepily familiar hopes for the German future, everyone just keeps laughing at the amazing impersonation. Selten hat mir eine Einbandgestaltung derart gut gefallen. Hitler’s observations of modern life and technology were hilarious. That is what Timur’s book is about.

But for the love of sanity, look at what the author does. He’s a stroppy, avuncular, highly articulate, tee-total vegetarian who loves children and loves nature, loves order and discipline and wants his country to be strong and successful. Kein einziger Moment tlmur of character”. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The analogy that springs to mind right now is the situation in The Crimea and the Ukraine vs Russia.

Er ist wieder da

In many ways this makes us no different to the many who followed blindly back in the 20s and 30s. The problem is that we have Hitler has the main character, and the solutions for the problems we face, are not solved with his drastic measures, thank God!

So much that they fail to notice his misogyny.

He’s appalled by the profusion of newspapers purveying mindless dribble. Untermenschen, perhaps, who can barely read and write, but besides them?

I am not making this up, pretty much every reaction towards this book can be categorised in two ways. Well, then I can’t help you and you should really check in with your doctor just to be sure.


I assume my grammy links the character’s opinion with the author’s opinion; I hope most of you don’t make that mistake Then grandpa read it and, well, you see in the addition what he thinks about it. He talks about some subjects using this character, and not just stupid subjects, really important things that are happening nowadays.

It made me wonder, how I’d have reacted to such a character in her place. View all comments. Refresh and try again. And, also, they have given almost the same reasons as to why they did so. The novel was adapted into a German movie of the same namewhich was released in At least, I don’t think that’s it’s major point.

The rest is taken care of by history — or the TV ratings. In he started to ghostwrite books, including a bo Vermes was born in Nuremberg in I wonder whether these thoughts do not, in the end, essentially miss the point. Der Humor dieser Satire ist oft pechschwarz und es bleibt einem das Lachen im Halse stecken, aber oft genug kann man auch einfach herzlich lachen.

I have to say it again, I appreciate how this Hitler was written, he isn’t being presented ua us like some comical monster nor a clown. I just wished I liked this one more, because it’s pretty genius. Sep 02, Alexandra rated it it was amazing Shelves:
