Unbelievably believable

This was one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a long time. The adventures of the endearing old man were unbelievably believable.

You'll fall in love with the life story of Allan Karlsson.

What a wonderful book! You'll fall in love with the life story of Allan Karlsson. For a man with no interest in politics, he meets nearly every world leader of his lifetime and effects them all. This charming, well-written, humorous tale follows Allan's life from the day he turns 100. Such adventures await him in his future and rest behind in his past.


This such a wonderful story. The book goes back and forth on time in Allan’s life. Allan meets world leaders and finds himself in crazy situations. His beautiful outlook son life is refreshing. A really lovely book.

The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window

I was put off with this story by page 50-60. I only forced myself to finish the book because it was our book club choice. ( locally) I have described the book to others & some think it sounds interesting. I thought it was to far fetched. It sets the reader up and has odd happenings. I did buy the book but it's not one I'd ever read again. Don't waste your time. Book club is tonight. It will be interesting what the other's think of this book.

Entertaining Reading

This is one man's adventure of meeting/dealing with presidents/dictators through 80 years of travel and meanwhile becoming involved with several characters who keep reappearing in his stories. Light and fun reading.
