Sitting quietly in his room in an old people's home, Allan Karlsson is waiting for a party he doesn't want to begin: his one-hundredth birthday party. Escaping through his bedroom window, into the flowerbed, Allan makes his getaway. And so begins his picaresque and unlikely journey involving criminals, several deaths, a suitcase full of cash, and incompetent but very human police.

I started thinking, 'This is going to be funny'.
Less than half way through the drawn out story I struggled to keep up with who was who.
At chapter 15 I couldn't stand listening to anymore foul language and the absolutely rubbishy story

Nabeel Qureshi describes his dramatic journey from Islam to Christianity, complete with friendships, investigations, and supernatural dreams along the way. Providing an intimate window into a loving Muslim home, Qureshi shares how he developed a passion for Islam before discovering, almost against his will, evidence that Jesus rose from the dead and claimed to be God. Unable to deny the arguments but not wanting to deny his family, Qureshi's inner turmoil will challenge Christians and Muslims alike.

Having a most loved granddaughter, who became a moslem a few years ago and is now married to a moslem.
i am a very devoted follower of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ seeking to share the gospel as GOD enables me. We still have a loving relationship. I wanted to read this book as with this knowledge of Islam I look to GOD to guide me in my conversations with Naomi & her husband Mahmoud. I would say I found the dialog was abit long winded at times
