The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
The adventure begins when Allan Karlsson climbs out the window of his nursing home to avoid his 100th Birthday party. He proceeds to cross paths with gangsters, petty criminals and a rogue elephant. All of this would be exciting enough, but the story also flashes back to events of Allan’s life to date. These adventures record meetings with Stalin, Churchill, Truman and Mao. You will be amazed at the situations he gets entangled in and at the way he manages to sail through unscathed. I laughed out loud more than once while reading this book.
