RE: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

I downloaded this too, but haven't got around to reading it yet. Quirky title attracted me.

Confession: I have a lot of unread books stored on my Kindle... makes me wonder if this is the dark secret of ebook sales?

Mrs Syd liked it; but she laughed a lot more in the first hundred pages than the last.

Well, if Amazon allows resale of Kindle books, one of you can sell me yours for 10 p. Now I know I'm NOT going to fork out $ 10 for it.

As the book club discussion has been preemted, we will need to move this thread to the book club and start it before it's due to start (on 14th), I think joo will do this as I'm on my Fire and it's not so easy to do from here.

Ooo I too missed it was the book club choice. I might have to make an effort to read it now, as it seems so 'Marmite' it would be good to read at the same time as others.
