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 The book is at least as surprising and original as its title.

Allan Karlsson is a wonderful character you can't help to love as you get to know about him and his crazy life throughout the book.

I liked the setup with chapters alternating between past and present. The fine line between facts and fiction was very entertaining and I often had to laugh out loud while reading. This fact alone makes it worthwile to compare it with [b:The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy|11|The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide, #1)|Douglas Adams|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327656754s/11.jpg|3078186].

Really enjoyable and relaxing read. Recommended to everyone needing a break! :-)
