The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh my, what a wonderful story this is. What starts as an attempt to escape the festivities for his hundredth birthday turns into quite an adventure for Allan Karlsson but it turns out that it is pretty mild compared to what he has done in his life. In the manner of Forrest Gump being at several big events in history and meeting various presidents and world leaders, we learn what Mr. Karlsson has been doing in his hundred years. Quite an enchanting tale and a fun read that had me laughing out loud several times.
