Look Who's Back - Timur Vermes

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.
