Alas, I have finally finished this debut novel by Swedish author Jonas Jonasson! Firstly, this book was the first that I have ever laughed at! This book definitely has its moments!
The book itself follows Allan’s life after he jumps out of that very window, but also occasionally flashes back to his past, showing how much he has influenced historical events.
When the book focussed on the present, rather than Allan’s past, the book was easier to follow for me. Unfortunately, I felt as though you needed a bit of political and historical knowledge to enjoy this book altogether. No spoilers, but the book ends weirdly too…
But, that said, a fun book to read! 3 out of 5 stars for me!
