    Come gestire benissimo una premessa apparentemente banale: tornare indietro nel tempo e fermare Hitler. Stephen Fry lascia i panni da attore e indossa quelli da romanziere, trovandosi perfettamente a suo agio. Ottima variazione sul tema, che non si limita a raccontare una trama, ma prova anche a suggerire qualche riflessione in più e mantiene un ritmo incalzante, bravo.

    All this crowned by Fry's supreme writing skills.

    Sono una dalle letture spurie e per le contaminazioni di generi. Questo romanzo ne è un notevole esempio. E' una storia fantacientifica con ambientazione storica e ritmo thriller. A tratti è commedia pura e in altri persino filosofico. Insomma, ce n'è per tutti i gusti ma soprattutto non guasta. Si legge una meraviglia e la suspense funziona davvero. Una vera chicca poi per gli appassionati di Hitler e della seconda guerra mondiale.

    A young history student meets an old physicist, whose father spent time in Auschwitz. Together, and thanks to a miraculous device built by the scientist, they devise a way to modify the past and get rid of one of the most dark chapters in history: Adolf Hitler and the rise of National Socialism.
    What they didn't foresee is that...

    Alternate history stories are among my favorites, providing there's no Gwyneth Paltrow in them. I am fascinated by the possibilities of a single action becoming uncontrollably magnified by the context, much as the protagonist of this book is shocked by them. How often we thought "if I did that way, things would have gone that other way!". This book shows that things aren't always that easy.

    I advise this book to everyone, as other than Fry being a joy to read, it offers a fresh view on a dark period of human history.
