It all begins with a hot air balloon trip and three bottles of champagne. Allan and Julius are ready for some spectacular views, but they’re not expecting to land in the sea and be rescued by a North Korean ship, and they could never have imagined that the captain of the ship would be harboring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un. Yikes!
Soon Allan and Julius are at the center of a complex diplomatic crisis involving world figures from the Swedish foreign minister to Angela Merkel and President Trump. Needless to say, things are about to get very, very complicated.
Another hilarious, witty, and entertaining novel from bestselling author Jonas Jonasson that will have readers howling out-loud at the escapades and misfortunes of its beloved hundred-year-old hero Allan Karlsson and his irresistible sidekick Julius.


Jonas Jonasson is the author of the novel The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, which has sold more than eight million copies worldwide. He was a journalist for many years, then became a media consultant and later the founder of a sporting events production company for Swedish television. After selling his company, he moved abroad to work on his first novel. Jonasson now lives with his son on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.

My review for The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared


REVIEW:
I loved the other two books of Jonassons' that I've read, but I didn't love this one.
The old man was back, turning another year older, and running into to antics along the way. There was a couple of cute moments in the story, but for the most part, it was the authors' thoughts on politics and other worldly events. At least, that's how I took it.
So, because of how it made me feel in that way, I wouldn't recommend it to fans. Don't bother with it, it's really not lif-changing if you skip it.
Or don't, and maybe you will feel differently and be excited by it. To each his own.


2/5

    1. I say, give it a try. Each person interprets differently so what may not be for me, might be for you.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
