    In his first major work of fiction in more than a decade, Norman Mailer offers what may be his consummate literary endeavor: he has set out to explore the evil of Adolf Hitler. The narrator, a mysterious SS man who is later revealed to be an exceptional presence, takes the young Adolf from birth through his adolescence. En route, reavealing portraits are offered of Hitler's father and mother, sisters, and brothers.

    Overall

    I was very disappointed in this book. I started the book hoping to gain another perspective about the most evil person in history. Instead, the book was written from the standpoint of a devil. To explain Hitler's behavior that "the devil made him do it" is an insult to the six million Jews he murdered, not to mention homosexuals and mentally challenged people whom he and his cronies tortured and killed. Additionally, I felt the book dragged. The focus was on Hitler's father and little about the young Hitler's makeup.
