The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared Book

Anonymous17 January 2018
I really enjoy the narrative and the protagonist character. The idea of telling key moments of global history through the experience of an unassuming 100 year old man really worked for me, although some may think it became a little corny that he happened to meet all the major political influences. There were a editorial lapses but this may have been related to translation from Swedish to English. It didn't spoil the experience. However, Although I respected Karlsson, it is interesting that I didnt particularly like his character but it did make me think that he has some recognisable traits to people I know who have made it to their one hundredth year, including the need for a daily tipple of their favourite spirit and an inability to be inactive.
