{ The Accidental Further Adventures of the 100-year-old Man - TLC Book Tour } 

• Hardcover: 448 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow (January 15, 2019)

The hysterical, clever, and unforgettable sequel to Jonas Jonasson’s international bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

He’s back. Even older. Even funnier.

It all begins with a hot air balloon trip and three bottles of champagne. Allan and Julius are ready for some spectacular views, but they’re not expecting to land in the sea and be rescued by a North Korean ship, and they could never have imagined that the captain of the ship would be harboring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un. Yikes!

Another hilarious, witty, and entertaining novel from bestselling author Jonas Jonasson that will have readers howling out-loud at the escapades and misfortunes of its beloved hundred-year-old hero Allan Karlsson and his irresistible sidekick Julius.

My Thoughts:

I think this may actually be the first book that I have read in a while, that I didn't enjoy.  I am not interested in anything political and I stay away from politically heavy news, books or shows.  There is far too much of that all around us, constantly.  I read to get away, to have fun, to enjoy something that will take me on a trip somewhere without actually leaving my 4 walls.

I didn't read the first book in the series, so I can't say if it was the same, or if I would have felt towards the story the same as I do in this one.   in that one, but for me, this just didn't work.

There are some comical moments, some funny dialogue, and the fact that Allan the main character is 101 years old, is interesting, but aside from that I really didn't care for the story and the setting, it didn't do it for me.

I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to review the book, by TLC, but unfortunately, I did not like it.

I'm glad I found your review. I was thinking of reading this but think I'll take a pass now. I have way too many books on my pile and on my lists and this doesn't sound like it would be my cup of tea either.
