1.0 out of 5 stars Bum note, 27 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Kindle Edition)
There is much that I could write about this book. I wasted time reading to around page 150 before realising that it had progressed from irritiating me, to annoying me. I could give examples of the leaden, twee prose, the self-regarding air of the whole thing, the juvenile plot. However there is only one thing you need to know about this lame, simpering, self-regarding book to help you decide if you want to read it or not: It has the word 'Bum' in it. The word 'Bum' should never appear in a book written by an adult, for adults. That tells you all you need to know. That, and the fact that an elephant kills someone by sitting on them. That also tells you something - it tells you that the author thinks that you will find that funny. As before, an elephant sitting on someone should never appear in a book written by an adult, for adults. That's the first rule of literature. (OK, second rule, if you include the 'Bum' rule).
