Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Par Audrey B TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Un des rares livres que je finis sans savoir si je l'ai apprécié ou pas.

L'idée de départ m'a beaucoup plu. Vu les commentaires sur la couverture je m'attendais à un récit au ton globalement humoristique. Voire même "les Visiteurs" mais version Hitler au lieu de Godefroi et Jacouille.
Du coup je suis restée un peu sur ma fin. Certes beaucoup de situation sont drôles, surtout au début quand Hitler est désorienté par le nouveau monde qu'il découvre. Mais je trouve que l'histoire a peine à avancer. Il ne se passe rien de fabuleux et j'ai trouvé que l'auteur lui même avait du mal à se situer.

S'il voulait une histoire humoristique, pourquoi ces longs (archi longs) passages dans lesquels Hitler ressasse le passé. J'avais l'impression de lire mon livre d'histoire géo de première et très honnêtement j'ai souvent sauté ces passages dans lesquels j'avais du mal à tout suivre.
S'il voulait faire plus sérieux, pourquoi ce scénario très simpliste aux grosses ficelles (personne ne se soucie de faire une recherche sur la véritable identité d'Hitler , tout s’enchaîne très très facilement...)

Certaines incohérences m'ont empêchée d’apprécier pleinement le livre. J'aurais aimé voir Hitler ridicule dans ce monde auquel il ne doit pas comprendre grand chose, désespéré de remonter le temps pour changer l'histoire à sa manière, bien plus virulent dans ses propos (le Fuhrer du livre est très très soft, voire même sympathique), provoquant des quiproquos, finissant devant une cour de justice, démasqué, bref je reste sur ma faim.

Controversial.
I have read this book with mixed feelings.
It is bizarre, maybe. But there were moments that this book made me laugh loud.
The book managed to shine a light on the more ridiculous aspects of modern life and in particular the media and the deification of celebrity.
Despite the strange subject matter, Timur manages to make Hitler seem almost likeable.
Excellent satire and very thought provoking.

L'idée est excellente
Rien à signaler sur le style même si je n'ai pas le vocabulaire artistique pour le qualifier (léger ?)
Les idées satiriques sont bien vues et pertinentes
...
MAIS :
J'arrive à la fin du livre en ayant l'impression de ne pas avoir quitté l'introduction
Hitler, humanisé, devient un personnage banalisé, alors que l'auteur ne veut visiblement pas en faire l'apologie
=> pour moi, bonne idée gâchée, œuvre inachevée

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Satirical indeed. 31 mars 2014
Par Liz Barnsley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Thank you to the author and publisher for the review copy. **3.5 stars***

Summer 2011. Berlin. Adolf Hitler wakes up on a patch of 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, though – as a brilliant, satirical impersonator who refuses to break character. The unthinkable, the inevitable, happens, and the ranting Hitler takes off, goes viral, becomes a YouTube star, gets his own TV show, becomes someone who people listen to. All while he’s still trying to convince people that yes, it really is him, and yes, he really means it.

There have already been mixed opinions on this one – basically surrounding the sense or not of writing what is basically a comedy of errors and making one of the most villified characters in history – Hitler – its main protagonist. Before I dived in, I read several online discussions, a few non-spoiler reviews and was intrigued to see just what all the fuss was about…

How did I find it? Well I laughed a lot, sometimes in a vaguely guilty way admittedly. Mainly in the portions that dealt with Hitler’s interactions with the media – where they are assuming he is an impersonator, of course, and he is solidly and absolutely himself. Add to that, especially in the early chapters, his despair at the state of the world – and his discovery of television cookery shows – and the whole thing is ironically amusing.

I can see it would be fairly easy to find a reason to be offended by this book but I see no need. The author never tries to make Hitler likeable (or unlikeable for that matter) or offer excuses for his actions, nor does he pretend that this is anything other than exactly what it is – a darkly imaginative fantasy tale with perhaps a touch of social commentary.

The only small downside for me was perhaps that this is aimed very much at the German audience – I’m sure a lot of the satire went straight over my head, especially with regards to the pop culture of that country – there were media releases and tv shows that I was obviously expected to know about that I assume would have made certain portions of the book more humerous – but mostly I would say I tootled along fairly well.

I also think that people with a better knowledge than I possess of Hitler’s period of history would get more out of it – when he is talking about his political party and the players in the war I was often a bit lost because my education in this matter stops with the big stuff (the horrific treatment of the Jewish community) and I also knew the name of Hitler’s mistress. Apart from that I am actually quite ashamed to admit I know very little detail. A fact I should perhaps rectify…

Overall though this was an intriguing, humerous and fascinating reading experience which I enjoyed very much. Beautifully translated as well. Kudos.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Novel set in Berlin, Germany (he’s back; he’s führious) 4 janvier 2015
Par TripFiction - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is such a hard book to review! Translated superbly by Jamie Bulloch (whose work we have encountered in the Mussel Feast by Birgit Vanderbeke, also set in Berlin) it has a wonderfully fluid writing style. It also has a cover that is so eye catching and raises a few eyebrows when folks catch sight of the stylised hair; and, really, is that the matching moustache? I KNOW the question you are dying to ask and it certainly is who you think it is delineated on the cover! Is this a risky book cover???? Would love to hear what you think!

It’s 2011 and (the real) Adolf Hitler awakens from some unaccounted slumbers and finds himself in a park in full regalia. A newspaper vendor, who has a kiosk in the park, takes him under his wing and soon sets up a meeting for him with a TV production company. They are fully of the belief that this Adolf is clearly a committed Method Actor who takes his art super seriously and pretty immediately they give him a slot on the Gagmez TV show. Adolf’s media presence balloons, just as it did in the 1930s. He soon insinuates himself into the public eye, and his appearances become the hot topic for discussion across society.

In essence this is a satirical look at celebrity and the role the media plays in bringing and then maintaining certain people in the media spotlight. It’s comical side in part stems from Hitler observing 21st century German (and international) culture through the lens of someone who has missed the build up to the modern day for the last 50 years or so. He cannily observes the politicians, there are wry comments about Chancellor Angela being a shapeless old trout; or Putin being a sop to his fellow countrymen by posing without his shirt on (remember those photos?). Hitler goes on, for example, to have an internal dialogue about how Putin can justify these snaps, and imagines he might have said “Look, my dear fellow countrymen, I have made the most extraordinary discovery: my policies look better without a shirt on.” There are ramblings and observations aplenty – he comes back time and again to all these women in the park who pick up the turds of their pet dogs (perhaps they have been sterilised, muses Hitler to explain their apparently errant actions).

So, how well does this book work for an English audience? If you are into German culture and enjoy exploring German quirkiness through fiction, then I think it will hit the spot. Bild Zeitung gets a good mention and that is a newspaper worthy of a book itself. However, there could be many references that might pass over the heads of those who know little of German mores and this may feel unsatisfactory.

But the final, over-arching question has to be: how comfortable is it that Adolf Hitler is the main protagonist? The author is skilled at walking a knife-edge between humour/satire, and bad taste. But there are occasions where I could feel the prickles of discomfort just beginning to bubble. It has its amusing moments which many will enjoy, yet it will be appalling to others, this, a satirical book about one of the most evil men who ever lived… but this, Adolf, curmudgeonly as he is in 2011, can still garner acolytes, and one has to wonder what that says about all of us who buy into the cult of celebrity.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Try it with an open mind 24 avril 2015
Par Sergiu Pobereznic (author) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Brief synopsis: Hitler wakes up in 2011 wearing his recognizable uniform (a time traveller perhaps?) unaware that the war finished many decades ago. As you can imagine, there is lots of room for interesting ideas to be developed as he wanders around Berlin trying to make sense of his surroundings, the modern technologies readily available, while still holding on to his old values, ideologies etc. Hitler is the narrator and the image that is painted of him is that of the Everyman. The dialogue in some places is reminiscent of Mein Kampf, which lends more credibility to the narrator's speaking voice.
I can (kind of) see why some people found this work in poor taste and questioned whether it was all right to tackle such a subject for the purpose of satire or comedy. The truth is there is no real need to feel this way. There will always be arguments from both sides. Personally, I am of the belief that we should remember what happened but we should also not lose our sense of humour.
I have read a tremendous amount of literature on the Holocaust and instead of looking at this book as though the author were making fun of something terrible in our human history why not change the perspective and look at it this way: This is a book about Hitler's perspective of our world today. Surely not such a bad thing. I think that this was the author's actual intent. It is certainly a clever idea and that alone was reason enough for me to give the book a try.
Yes, Hitler was, and still is, in this novel an ill-mannered, boorish and odious individual, but the world is filled with such people. Not all protagonists have to be likeable.
There are many, truly funny scenes, but there are also some sections that may be hard to comprehend because the story is directed at a German audience, with references to German culture that many people have not had contact with. Even so, the book was a good and easy read.
Being that it is a translation, I think that it reads extremely well.
Give it a try.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The German Kindle edition has been abridged by at least 30% as I learnt from German reviews.
So please stick to the printed edition if you prefer the real thing!!!

HARDCOVER

Unbelievably ingenious satire by Timur Vermes, born in Nuremberg to a German mother and a refugee Hungarian father, refreshingly non-pc and thus apparently meeting the contemporary needs and demands of the German speaking readership

This book was a No 1 bestseller in extremely politically correct Germany for months on end and received 1913 reviews to this day, which speaks for itself.

More than 700000 copies of "Er ist wieder da" were sold until June 2013 and it was translated into 27 languages. I sincerely hope the translations do justice to the original German edition, because the whole story lives off typical German connotations, puns, the current bizarre political drama and its preposterous protagonists.

Highly recommended to everyone who appreciates an intelligent, brilliantly witty, priceless read.

German wikipedia says it will be shot in 2014, which in fact says nothing ;-) and I doubt the film will live up to the book.

(Btw, relatively authentic background knowledge e.g. Hitler's Table Talk, 1941-1944: His Private Conversations might increase the pleasure of this treat)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Biting Satire With A Troubling Message 4 juillet 2015
Par Joe K - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Look Who’s Back is biting satire with a provocative-teetering-on-actually-offensive premise: in the summer of 2011, Adolf Hitler mysteriously wakes up in Berlin with no memory of his death and no knowledge of what happened over the last six decades. He sets about trying to regain power, is mistaken for an extremely dedicated Hitler impersonator providing satirical commentary on the state of German politics, culture and society in the 21st century (like a sharper and much, much darker Colbert Report) and becomes a star. And the story is told by Hitler himself.

It’s a sharp look by author Timur Vermes at the media and the nature of celebrity, at the contradictions and failings of modern democracy and the frustration of the people with their leaders, and how these elements can be exploited by malign forces. He sends up the showmanship and sensationalism of the news, the emptiness of popular culture and the television industry, and the cloying and pandering of political parties to great effect and terrifying impact considering whose knives are doing the cutting.

There was a great deal of discussion in Germany and literary circles as to whether or not it was actually okay to write a comedic novel starring Adolf Hitler, which as a Jew from a family who was not all able to flee Germany during Hitler’s reign I certainly understand. Having read it I would argue Vermes makes a strong case for himself.

The evil and brutal violence and bigotry of Vermes’ Hitler are very much on display, and very much part of the point. His narrator is pompous and egotistical to the point of ridiculous, with a tremendous capacity for self-rationalization and self-delusion, and very often the butt of the joke, so much so that it’s hard to take him seriously, a sort of charming cluelessness that almost borders on sympathetic. And then, slowly at first but more as the story moves forward, Hitler reminds us of who he really is, throwing in some reference to the monstrousness of what he accomplished “last time.”

Combined with the very real – and from what I’ve read very historically accurate and appropriate – insights that Hitler offers by applying his way of thinking to our century, what we end up with is an albeit humorous warning that we cannot leave Hitler in the past, much as we would like to. Vermes paints a picture of the darkest shades of angry populism, and how a charismatic leader speaking to the frustrations of a society that feels it’s not being listened to can unleash terrible consequences.

In short, this is a book very much concerned with how people like Hitler gain control in the first place, and how they could again. As one of the few characters to (temporarily) see him for what he is points out, people laughed at him then, too – and much like the characters in the book, ignored the disturbing elements of his program because he seemed like the only one talking about other issues.

The humor also does work, particularly as Vermes is wise enough to note when the “1940s man is confused by 21st century technology!” bits start to grow tired and reduces their frequency. And as a literary effort, it’s an interesting example of a particular kind of unreliable narrator – the narrator who doesn’t realize they’re unreliable where it’s central to the story that the audience, from the beginning, does.

One comment I would make is that while a great deal of the satire hits home across the developed world, this is very much a German book by a German author with something to say about Germany. The analysis offered by Hitler on cell phones and on the frustration of the people with governing elites reads well to a wide audience, but despite the provided glossary I spent a lot of time Googling names and references and a lot of time throwing up my hands at jokes and commentary that just didn’t translate. With this sort of satire, you need to know more about what’s being satirized to get it than I do about Germany in 2011.
