'The hundred year old man who climbed out of a window and disappeared' is a thoroughly enjoyable book! A very light read, very dry humour, utterly unbelievable plot, but fun all the same!
As the long title implies, it is the story of Allan, who climbs out of the window of his nursing home on his 100th birthday, and goes on an adventure. The plot divides itself into Allan's history and the present day. Allan's history takes us through all the major events of the 20th century, and features comical scenarios and situations with all the major political figures!
I particularly enjoyed
the history parts of this book, and hearing Allan's
very relaxed, unfazed take on the major events of the 20th century. Not
really a favourite-book-ever type of read but I would recommend it as a
light-hearted, easy-to-read holiday book.
