作品紹介

It all starts on the one-hundredth birthday of Allan Karlsson. Sitting quietly in his room in an old people's home, he is waiting for the party he-never-wanted-anyway to begin. The mayor is going to be there. The press is going to be there. But, as it turns out, Allan is not...Slowly but surely Allan climbs out of his bedroom window, into the flowerbed (in his slippers) and makes his getaway. And so begins his picaresque and unlikely journey involving criminals, several murders, a suitcase full of cash, and incompetent police. As his escapades unfold, we learn something of Allan's earlier life in which - remarkably - he helped to make the atom bomb, became friends with American presidents, Russian tyrants, and Chinese leaders, and was a participant behind the scenes in many key events of the twentieth century. Already a huge bestseller across Europe, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared is a fun, feel-good book for all ages.

  • 老人ホームでの100歳のお誕生日にホームを逃げ出した老人の回想録。歴史的な人物と交流していたっていう。あまりに淡々とした人で、感情をあらわにしたのは、猫ちゃんが狐にやられたときだけという・・・。数名都合よく死んでしまって、そこもなんだかなぁ、と。歴史上人物たちとの交流が興味深かったけど、どれも本当都合よくうまく収まって、ご都合主義。2冊目を読むかどうかわからない。

  • 痛快!傑作!とにかく面白かった!ここ数年で1番楽しめた本でした。
