Dock had recently bemoaned the lack of activity in this book section. The sad fact is that since my increased leisure time I haven't  read  a single novel, biography or anything other than a couple of history books. Until recently that is.  So here's three.

Look Who's Back, Timur Vermes

Present day Berlin and somehow the Fuehrer awakes from a mysterious 70 year slumber as Germany forays into the 21st century.
Cue amusing observations on modern life and post war Europe as he is somehow taken for a post ironic Hitler impressionist whilst plotting another world dominance.

Mildly risible but the standing joke wears a bit thin at times. Believable on a gossamer like thread of disbelief suspension but still provocative enough for the reader to think twice about this parallel internet world we have built to dump our mental waste and gather our cheap entertainment.
