  • "A very guilty and entirely disconce..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I have very mixed feelings about this book. Written in the style of Mein Kampf (so I understand, although I haven't read it), this book finds Hitler awaken on a football pitch in contemporary Berlin having apparently time-travelled there and consists of his musings on modern life and the people he encounters. He is universally regarded as an ironic, satirical Hitler impersonator and builds a new career on this basis, which he mistakes for an opportunity to espouse his ideals for Germany's future. However, this misapprehension is never quite dispelled and like a lot of things in this book, I found it irritatingly glossed over. There are some genuinely funny moments as one would expect from examining what historical figures would make of the modern world, especially from an extremist such as Hitler - there are plenty of opportunities for Vermes to poke fun at his protagonist and he greatly takes advantage. However, apart from my discomfort that arose from the 'should I be laughing at this' sensation, what I also found problematic was that Hitler was often sympathetically portrayed - almost an endearing and insightful 'old Uncle Adolph' - which was for me, very difficult to deal with.
    I would recommend this on the basis of its comedic and thought-inducing elements and for Julian Rhind-Tutt's excellent narration. However, my recommendation is very cautiously given.

    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.

    Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.

    1913 - Suffragette throws herself under the King's horse. 1969 - Feminists storm Miss World. Now - Caitlin Moran rewrites "The Female Eunuch" from a bar stool and demands to know why pants are getting smaller. There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain.... Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina?

Read unabridged by the man himself, the audiobook edition of The Life of Lee is an utterly hilarious and very moving autobiography, charting his ups and downs on the way to the top.

    Possibly the only drawback about the best-selling How to Be a Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. Moranthology is proof that Caitlin can actually be 'quite chatty' about many other things, including cultural, social and political issues which are usually the province of learned professors, or hot-shot wonks - and not a woman who once, as an experiment, put a wasp in a jar, and got it stoned.

    A guy walks into a bar.From here, the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humour and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been called 'A humorist par excellence, he can make Woody Allen appear ham-tongued, Oscar Wilde a drag' (Observer).

Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.

    There is a tragic epidemic going on around us - a dreadful disconnect between human beings and the real world we live in. We are paying frightfully little attention to our real-world surroundings. We are addicted to digital devices. It's time for us to swallow a healthy dose of reality and find balance between our digital lives and our flesh-and-blood relationships. Steve Krupnik's satirical analysis of "digital junkies" makes a clear case that technology is advancing much more rapidly than its users.

    God Is Disappointed in You is for people who would like to read the Bible...if it would just cut to the chase. Stripped of its arcane language and interminable passages, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each. Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers.
