On his one-hundredth birthday Allan Karlsson makes his escape from the old people's home and embarks on an unlikely and momentous adventure. The international bestselling phenomenon by Swedish sensation Jonas Jonasson.
I have been meaning to read this book for ages and I was so glad I finally did. It is an entertaining book that links various events across the last 100 years in an alternative history. I was tempted (Oh, the curse of the modern age!) to check if some of the "facts" were true! Allan is a likable, if somewhat two dimensional character, that carries the book - a must for all farce fans!
