wishful wednesday

Haiii… selamat datang lagi di hari Rabu.. Setelah beberapa minggu belakangan ini diisi dengan heboh-heboh seputar Pilpres, minggu ini yukk kita balik lagi bermimpi tentang buku πŸ™‚

Wishful Wednesday saya minggu ini super duper telat sih sebenernya, karena bukunya udah beredar lama, udah diterjemahin pulak. Tapi entah kenapa baru penasarannya ya sekarang ini πŸ˜„ Gara-garanya, minggu lalu mampir ke Periplus waktu ketemuan sama Essy dan Ferina, dan baru nyadar kalau buku ini sudah difilmkan, sudah terbit dalam berbagai jenis cover, tapi cover yang paling keren harganya malah paling mahal, hikshiks!

The Hundred-Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Jonas Jonasson). Panjang yaaa judulnya…

It all starts on the one-hundredth birthday of Allan Karlsson. Sitting quietly in his room in an old people’s home, he is waiting for the party he-never-wanted-anyway to begin. The Mayor is going to be there. The press is going to be there. But, as it turns out, Allan is not… Slowly but surely Allan climbs out of his bedroom window, into the flowerbed (in his slippers) and makes his getaway. And so begins his picaresque and unlikely journey involving criminals, several murders, a suitcase full of cash, and incompetent police. As his escapades unfold, we learn something of Allan’s earlier life in which – remarkably – he helped to make the atom bomb, became friends with American presidents, Russian tyrants, and Chinese leaders, and was a participant behind the scenes in many key events of the twentieth century. Already a huge bestseller across Europe, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared is a fun and feel-good book for all ages.

Dan inilah versi cover yang bikin pingin, meski harga mass market paperbacknya udah nyaingin large paperback:

100 year old manSemoga bisa cepet masuk rak diskon deh πŸ˜„
