The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson I have only read two books by Swedes. One is 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,' and this is the other one. I've noticed that they tend to have a long narratives for their novels.

Though this is not exactly a page-turner (I've been reading this for almost a month!), I enjoyed Allan's life, better yet, 'ridiculously lucky life.' From presidents to physicists to revolutionaries, he witnessed and SURVIVED them all.

The story alternated between the present and the past circumstances. I must say, I am more inclined to the voice for the past. Then the next chapter comes and I was, like, jerked back to reality. The flow of the story wasn't as smooth, for me.

There is a lot to take away from this, really.
