The hundred-year-old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared by Jonas Jonasson [Christina, Takapuna]


Allan escapes from his birthday party at the rest home where he lives.  

At first I thought that he was just a contrary old codger avoiding a tedious and teetotal event. He pinches a stranger's suitcase at the bus station just because that stranger was rude to him, then he travels on, making his plans as he goes.  

This was the pattern of Allan's whole life. He fell into becoming an explosives expert and shared his knowledge with anyone friendly to him, willing to share a drink or a meal. He retains a profound disinterest in politics even as he helps Chinese Nationalists and Communists and American Presidents. While on the run from the rest home, he has more adventures.  

He is a man to whom things happen!
