Saturday’s Book: The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared

I read this book in less than a week. Perfect book for a vacation. Could be dangerous to read when you have a lot of work to be done – it is quite hard to stop reading!

If you had been able to see me while reading you would have mainly seen a huge grin plastered over my face. Wild book, amusing and sometimes downright laugh aloud¬† funny. The cover quotes are so apt, such as:¬† “A Swedish black novel that reads like a road trip with Forrest Gump at the wheel”. TRUE!

The only thing that is a pity is that it is a bit too long. The author, Jonas Jonasson writes beautifully with a clever storyline.I think it would have been better with a few of the twists of the plot (particularly in the last part) left out. It just can’t remain as funny and surprising (which the book IS!) with so many twists of the plot.

This book seems to beg for a movie version. Can I pre-order tickets?

  1. Hi Naomi!

    As soon as you posted the blog post, with the description of the book and your enthusiasm about it, I immediately checked my local bookstore (well, my favourite one!) online and they HAVE IT!!! Whoop! Ordered. I will let you know as soon as I read it. The title sounds so interesting (and very original!).
