5.0 out of 5 stars Read on your own, 26 July 2013
This review is from: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Paperback)
For anyone sharing the same room as you the constant giggling and unexpected bursts of laughter can be very irritating. My wife banished me to the patio where the neighbors started complaining.

Having previously read "The unlikely pilgrimage of Harold Fry" and really enjoying it I thought I would embark on a campaign of choosing books with silly titles and titles don't get much sillier (or better) than this.

This is like no other book I have ever read and I loved it from beginning to end. They say that the main character in a book should be likeable and I defy anyone not to fall in love with Alan Karlsson. OK when he has had a few drinks too many he does have a tendency to help unstable nations to develop nuclear weapons but nobody's perfect.

A fantastic book from a writer with an extraordinary imagination, although part of me wants to believe it is a true story.
