Summary:

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health—and tomorrow is his hundredth birthday. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested, and he’d like a bit more control over his vodka consumption. So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant.Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed over two million people around the world.

Genres:

    Absolutely delightful and surprisingly hilarious. If you enjoy dry humor you will love it. Has become one of my very favourite books for its wit and lighthearted pleasure. I cannot recommend it enough.

  • Brian O.

    Hysterical premise and the plot was well thought out and prepared. Throughtout the story, the protagonist gets himself, and others, into, and remarkabley out of, all sorts of unbelievable tight squeezes that leave you scratching your head. Although funny, it starts to get a little long in the tooth as we go through another literally unbelievable period of Alan's life and it starts to border on the absurd. The narrator however does a great job reading the manuscript.

  • DK

    Very charming adventure. I loved all of the historical connections.

  • Virginia B.

    A fun adventure!

  • Tim S.

    My kids professor assigned this book, so I bought it for her. Not a book I would have bought otherwise, but turns out it was one of the most entertaining stories I've ever read.

  • Ayela Mujeeb

    Really fun and enjoyable. The narrator is fantastic.
