The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson


I know this is an international humorous bestseller but it just seemed underwhelming to me. It's an emotionally detached fable about a man who accidentally influences 20th century history, handily unencumbered by romance or self-awareness. Lots of political history cleverly hidden in the narrative but I don't think I'll remember much about it tomorrow.

And if you're going to the trouble of translating something, can't you make the title grammatical?
