really liked it

I'm always intrigued by "what if..." and love history so this book with it's "what if Hitler could be stopped?" was always going to appeal to me. It is clever and while often I did think as I read it "which of this is true in our world and which isn't" it wasn't necessary to have a good knowledge of 20th century history to enjoy it.

I was worried that Stephen Fry's "voice" would be overly intrusive as he is so well known and distinctive but I needn't have worried - within a very short time I was no longer reading it in my head in his voice!

The one thing that was a little irritating was when scenes were written as a movie script - it didn't really work for me but it was only mildly irritating.

A very satisfying read.
