It's mini-review time again!
Ever wondered what the world would be like if Hitler and World War II hadn't happened? Stephen Fry explores this question in this great book, which shows us that things can always be worse and reminds so to be careful what we wish for. It left me thankful for the freedoms that I have in this world. And what a great idea for a book, a fascinating question. Be warned though, this is nothing like the comic side of Stephen Fry that you may already know and appreciate!
A light, quick read about Ellen, a single woman who desperately wants a child - so desperately that "Big Bird is looking like a better candidate for fatherhood every day: he's tall, affectionate, and steadily employed" (from back cover). Those who were ever desparate for children will be able to relate and those who have children will certainly laugh at some kid-related bits. But if you're not really into this topic then you probably won't enjoy this as much as I did.
