"The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared" - what a title! This book features a more-tell-than-show writing style. It’s as though the author is telling you a story, the way a parent would tell it to a child. I didn’t mind it myself, perhaps because I’m used to Polish books written this way, but I can imagine it might annoy a reader who’s not used to it. I would advise you to persevere, because the story is hilarious – a Swedish Forrest Gump of sorts. I totally enjoyed it and want to see the movie.
