4.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous entertaining fantasy!, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Kindle Edition)
This struck me as the sort of wild yarn you might be spun by some ripe old lad whom you had the luck to sit next to in the pub. He knows you are going to lend a kindly ear to such an ancient codger so does not hold back as he unfolds his unlikely adventures that seem more like wishful thinking for the exciting life he would have liked to have lived. In the main tale the old boy has escaped with some athleticism from the care home in which he lives, to avoid a ghastly 100th birthday party in his honour, then embarks on a series of wild escapades in the company of some disparate characters he meets along the way. Interlaced with this is another story about his past life comprising far-fetched chapters involving some of the most famous and infamous leaders of our time. In fact this could have made a separate book. Forget about believing any of it - just enjoy it!
