Kinga's Reading

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson Allan Karlsson leaves a nursing home on the day of his 100th Birthday and gets himself in all sorts of complicated situations. This was a humorous (notice: I did not say funny) book that had a lot of the "slapstick" element to it. Allan's life seems to take him into amazing adventures from which he mostly escapes unscathed, including a dinner with Stalin that goes wrong. It is an amusing and light read, but I did not laugh out loud even once.
