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

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

Read by Vincenza  - An incredible epic tale.  The book begins with Allan Karlsson, the soon to be one hundred year old inhabitant of the “old folks home”, stepping out of his bedroom window to escape the “bad tempered” Director Alice, the staged birthday party with the Mayor and members of the press.

As the story progresses the adventures become larger than life and reveal a man who has followed his own path meeting great leaders and influencing history.  It is very Forrest Gumpish!!!
