After a lot of grim crime novels, it was time for a change in tone (albeit I read yet another grim crime novel concurrently). This whimsical, humorous Swedish import fit the bill perfectly.

As the title indicates, a 100 year old gentleman escapes his nursing home and proceeds to encounter zany characters and have zany adventures. Along the way, we are treated to flashbacks that relate scenes from the old man's remarkable life(those who dismiss it as far-fetched are of course correct, but are also totally missing the point). He has been integrally involved with all sorts of crucial events throughout 20th century history such as the Manhattan Project and the nuclear arms race, became best buddies with Harry Truman while escaping from a gulag, crossing the Himalyans on camelback, consoling a young Kim Jong il, etc.

I was all set to come on here and drop the insightful comparison to Forrest Gump, but I see loads of other readers have already done that so my great "insight" wasn't so original after all :-) It is an apt comparison though. I was amused, I laughed out load several times, it was nothing I'll probably find all that memorable or re-read, but I did enjoy it. ( )

After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health. A big celebration is in the works for his 100th birthday, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his alcohol consumption), so he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey. It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: he has not only witnessed some of the most important events of the 20th century, but actually played a key role in them. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed readers across the world

Since so many of you have already read this, just going to say why it " didn't do it for me".

I am guessing that my dark and warped sense of humor has a lot to do with why this book did not make me laugh. I could count on my fingers how many times it made me even smile. I did like Allan, I liked the characters that he ran around with. I did not even mind the outlandish flashbacks to all the fab people we encountered in his life. However, that reminded me too much of Forest Gump, which I absolutely loved.

I was hoping for a book to jar me out of my self-inflicted "poor me" mood-this just did not do it for me.

I am raising it up to 3 stars as Jonasson can tell a story, I just wish it had a been a better one. ( )

This book had a great start but by the end I just wanted to be done with it. 
I got “The Hundred-Year-Old Man” a long time ago and had been sitting on my shelves ever since. A friend of my mother knew how much I like to read. After see was done with this book and enjoyed it so much she gave it to me as a present. After seeing her enjoying it so much I decided to give this one a try on Storytell an audiobook provider. This book was kind of a big deal the first couple of years when it came out. I remember everybody talking about it. There were television shows being made and a movie. A lot of buzz surrounded this book.

Synopsis:
This book is about Allan, He lives in a retirement center and turns 100 years old on the day we met him. He’s done with the retirement and wants to go on an adventure. Without telling anybody he steps outside his home and makes his way to the bus stop. After that he finds himself in all kinds of ridiculous adventures some of which include, a murder, an elephant, money and the cops. While reading this book you get all of Allan’s backstory. You get to know what it was like when he grew up, living in a small town in Sweden. How he managed to get out of that little town and all the people he met along the way.

Now for my opinion. The book started really strong, I liked the idea of an old guy who just had enough of the old life style. As the story started I didn’t really like the present parts, they were too ridiculous for my taste. What I really liked were the bits and pieces of story that explained where Allan came from and what he learned along the way. That enjoyment lasted very shortly. Around the 25 percent part the “history” bits were getting more and more weirder. The constant name dropping, the strange steps he made, all the people he met and how he responded to them all so calmly. All was just too extravagant. Around the 50 percent mark I wanted the history pieces to end just so I could get to the present parts. Which was strange because I didn’t really like the present parts to begin with. The characters were very stereotypical -usually not really a problem with me- but there was something going on with them. They appeared very stereotypical at first but they didn’t behave like his or her trope. Usually this would appear as good writing, don’t judge a book by its cover. This book on the other hand was poorly written which made the characters one dimensional and not fleshed out.

Overall I would say don’t waste your time on this one. I gave it 2 stars just because I’ve read worst books.

An absolutely stunning book which tickled my funny bones a lot! I'm in awe of Allan's wonderful journey and the famous politicians he met during his adventure! Definitely an awesome read!

Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny, the novel quickly develops into a romp that takes in all the major events of the 20th century. . . the plot is pleasingly nimble and the book's endearing charm offers a happy alternative to the more familiar Nordic noir.

Stalin synger svenske drikkeviser, og Truman blir dritings .Forrest Gump som hundreåring i ny bok.
ANMELDELSE: Han redder general Franco, riktignok etter først å ha plassert en bombe for å drepe ham. Han avverger et attentat mot Churchill, og gir Oppenheimer den endelige løsningen på formelen for atombomben.

Det rene soap altså. Samtidig er det — på sin høyst skakke og fantasifulle måte — en fantastisk reise gjennom forrige århundre.

Jonas Jonassen er intelligent, vittig og systemkritisk, der han harver over alt fra fjollete politifolk, rasehygienikere og despoters ideologiske paranoia. I en bok som gir håp om at alle har en fremtid, også hundreåringer.

Nästan frustande av alla förvecklingar som ryms i debuten släpper jag snart taget en bit in i läsningen. Jag inser att precis vad som helst kan hända och kommer att göra det. Författaren tycks bubbla av infallsrikedom strösslad med lite sensmoral.

Ingen kunde trollbinda sin publik bättre än morfar där han satt på ljugarbänken, lätt framåtlutad över sin käpp och med munnen full av snus.
– Nej men... är det sant, morfar? sa vi häpna barnbarn.
– Di söm bara säjer dä söm ä sanning, ä inte vär' å höra på, svarade morfar.
Den här boken är till honom.
Dedication on first page: Ingen var bedre til at trykkebinde sine tilhørere end morfar, som han sad der på skrønebænken, lænet frem over stokken og med munden fuld af snus."Jamen ... passer det, morfar?" måbede vi børnebørn."Dem, der kuns siger noget, der passer, de er itt' værd å hør' på," svarede morfar.Denne bog er tilegnet ham.Jonas Jonassson

You might think he could have made up his mind earlier, and been man enough to inform his surroundings of his decision. But Allan Karlsson had never been given to pondering things too long.
Man kan mene, at han burde have bestemt sig noget før, og at han burde have været mand for at meddele omgivelserne sin beslutning. Men det havde aldrig ligget til Allan Karlsson at gruble for længe over tingene.Altså nåede tanken kun lige at slå rod i den gamle mands hoved, før han åbnede vinduet til sit værelse i stueetagen på plejehjemmet i Malmköping i Sörmland og kravlede ud i bedet.
