3.0 out of 5 stars Amusing but not hilarious, 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Kindle Edition)
There are over 900 reviews on this book so I will make mine short.

The plot is as per the book description.Old guy disappears from the old folks home and steals a suitcase with valuable contents, falls in with some
strange characters etc. Threaded through the present narrative are chapters from Allan's amazing unbelievable life.

Once I started reading,I thought i had bought a kids book in error.
The writing style is unusual and rambles along with florid descriptions of irrelevant things.
i love black humour, and some of the content is dark, but not particularly funny.
The idea is interesting and it almost works.Almost. Towards the end I found myself wanting to finish it so I could read something else.

If you suspend the rational side of your brain and just jump into the book and go with the story it is an OK read.

Thanks for reading this.
