Making Hitler Funny... Kind Of...
Review of Look Who's Back - Timur Vermes by chrisandmark_is_here

Advantages: The naughty feeling you get from finding something amusing which really isn't...!
Disadvantages: Not as groundbreaking as it could have been (maybe)

~x~x~x~ A comedy book about Hitler. OK. ~x~x~x~ I'm the first to admit I don't know a great deal about Hitler, 'the war' doesn't interest me particularly and while I know the same basics as anyone else I've never looked to learn more than those ... Read review

'This isn't a very healthy spot,' he replied
Review of The Unreturning Army - Huntly Gordon by 2mennycds

Advantages: Easy to read, moving, frank but unsensational personal account
Disadvantages: None - but subject won't appeal to all

The title of this book caught my eye. That, and the subtitle “The Classic Memoir Of A Field Gunner In Flanders”. I’ve mentioned in other reviews of war books that my main interest in the subject isn’t so much the big picture of battles or engagements as ... Read review

Love Brings Us Together
Review of Come Together - Emlyn Rees, Josie Lloyd by Soho_Black

Advantages: A different and interesting narrative
Disadvantages: A weak ending and some weaker parts throughout

Reading Mike Gayle’s slightly disappointing “The Stag and Hen Weekend” earlier in the year reminded me of the original, and so far best, book written from the points of view of both sexes, Josie Lloyd and Emlyn Rees’ “Come Together”. It may be more than ... Read review

Disadvantages: This isn't Fowler's best collection by any means
