A Sweet Silly Tale

The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson

In this sweet silly tale, I liked the present day storyline much more than the back stories although the adventure in Russia was great. Jonasson's characters remind me of very mild Carl Hiassen ones and his back stories are like Peabody's Improbable History -- if anyone remember's it -- a part of the televisied cartoon The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. If not that, then for those younger, Forest Gump's way of getting into history's big moments.
