The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson

This was a recommendation of one of my book clubs recently.  It's an entertaining tale, tongue in cheek, of a 100 year old man who leaves his nursing home on his birthday.  He runs into trouble at the train station but its nothing new for him as we soon find out.  He's been in the middle of a lifetime of historical events.  His laid back "let's see what happens" outlook gets him into and out of precarious situations and provides the reader with a lesson in some 20th century conflicts.

The writing reminds me of an English version of the author Carl Hiaasen
