What a tale!
There were moments throughout where I felt lost in a way. With the story flipping back and forth between then and now, it got a little confusing at times. Still, in the end, it was brilliant and I get it.
This is a story that has to be told the way it is for you to understand who the 100 year old man is, and how he came to climb out of his window. You needed to go back and forth between his life, moments he won't want to forget, and once you read, neither will you. His moments are incredible. That putting it mildly too.
Yup, truly a wonderful story.
Did I like it better than the other book I have read? No, but close.
