This is not my usual 4 novel Really, it deserves less, but I smiled most of the way through it The story is convoluted and completely mad but was easy to read The characters were so off the wall, they made the story possible A totally nonsensical book that holds within it some interesting pictures of human nature and humanity. I am giving the book a rating of 3.5 I had started the book with very high expectations Why shouldn t I The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared had raised my expectations to another level For the most part the book did not disappoint.I became a fan of Nombeko Now who is she She is the protagonist of this novel the girl who would ultimately save the king of Sweden She is a remarkable character Born in abject poverty in South Africa, she had to relentlessly I am giving the book a rating of 3.5 I had started the book with very high expectations Why shouldn t I The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared had raised my expectations to another level For the most part the book did not disappoint.I became a fan of Nombeko Now who is she She is the protagonist of this novel the girl who would ultimately save the king of Sweden She is a remarkable character Born in abject poverty in South Africa, she had to relentlessly fight against poverty and prejudice By dint of her extraordinary intelligence and guts she would survive one of the most lethal secret service agencies of the world and end up in Sweden, where a new adventure would follow.The story is full of eccentric and colourful characters anarchists, secret agents, Chinese sisters and the list goes on The King and Prime Minister of Sweden would themselves be drawn into the adventure.You will enjoy this book if you like the author s brand of humour You need to suspend your disbelief and enjoy the show One thing I liked about the story was how the ideology of the characters would change triggered by certain events and experiences Even die hard believers in a cause might change My gripe with the novel is that the narrative lagged at certain places and things sort of stalled The book could have been shortened without impacting the narrative However, the end was satisfactory.This is a decent novel, but in my opinion not up to the standards of The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and DisappearedWas I a bit too lenient in my rating then Probably a bit The character of Nombeko and her triumph over adversities was the major reason why I liked this book.If you like absurd adventures with a tad dark humour then I would highly recommend The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared If you are a fan of Jonas Jonasson then you can give this book a try #FREE é Analfabeten som kunde räkna ì Hon b rjade arbeta som fem ring, blev f r ldral s vid tio, verk rd vid femton Ingenting tydde p annat n att hon skulle leva ett tag i sitt skjul i Sydafrikas st rsta k kstad och sedan d , saknad av ingen Om hon nu inte varit den hon var, men det var hon ju Nombeko Mayeki var analfabeten som kunde r kna det tillsammans med hennes talang f r henne bort fr n Soweto, till internationell storpolitik, till andra sidan jordklotet, till tv identiskt lika och v ldigt olika br der Under resan lyckas hon reta upp v rldens mest fruktade s kerhetstj nst innan hon en dag finner sig sj lv inst ngd i sk pet till en potatisbil D r och d r v rlden som v rlden k nner den hotadI Analfabeten som kunde r kna g r Jonas Jonasson upp med fundamentalismen i alla dess former tillsammans med vanf rest llningen om olika folks olika v rde Han g r det med humor och v rme Och sl r en g ng f r alla h l p myten om att kungar inte nackar h nsAnalfabeten som kunde r kna r Jonas Jonassons andra roman, efter v rldssucc n med Hundra ringen som klev ut genom f nstret och f rsvann At almost exactly halfway through the book, it became taxing to read The wit and quirky characters were replaced with improbable scenarios It was as if a lazier, time crunched writer completed a very well begun piece of literature. This book suffers a bit from comparing it with The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared which was delightful in all respects This follow up is also entertaining and quirky but never quite as charming It is also quite a lot too long and the middle section is very, very slow I especially enjoyed Nombeka and sometimes felt there was not enough of her and too much of others Nevertheless I did enjoy much of the book and can imagine it being made in to a movie like it This book suffers a bit from comparing it with The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared which was delightful in all respects This follow up is also entertaining and quirky but never quite as charming It is also quite a lot too long and the middle section is very, very slow I especially enjoyed Nombeka and sometimes felt there was not enough of her and too much of others Nevertheless I did enjoy much of the book and can imagine it being made in to a movie like its predecessor What do you get when you combine a South African woman named Nombeko who is born into the slums of Soweto only to be smart enough to make fools of her oppressors with her intelligence and finds her way to Sweden When there she meets a man who theoretically does not exist and who has a twin brother with the same name who is inspired to complete what his late father could not do and kill the king of Sweden Throw in the crazy brothers equally crazy girlfriend, the Prime Minister of Sweden, Chines What do you get when you combine a South African woman named Nombeko who is born into the slums of Soweto only to be smart enough to make fools of her oppressors with her intelligence and finds her way to Sweden When there she meets a man who theoretically does not exist and who has a twin brother with the same name who is inspired to complete what his late father could not do and kill the king of Sweden Throw in the crazy brothers equally crazy girlfriend, the Prime Minister of Sweden, Chinese officials and bumbling Israeli secret agents and you have a story that seems absurd and ridiculous but thanks to the author is instead totally hilarious and madcap Oh and Nombeko also made it to Sweden with a nuclear bomb that also does not officially exist.I am not going to go intodetail then what i have said in regards to the plot If you have read Jonasson s debut novel The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared then you will know what to expect with laugh s a plenty to be had while being imaginative and maybe even far fetched and if you have not then why not The center piece of the story for me is the larger than life characters including the brainy Nombeko, the Swedish twins Holger one and Holger two who are so far apart in there beliefs you can t help but chuckle, three Chinese South African sisters with brilliant art forgery skills and a penchant for poisoning and a South African engineer who is an idiot and you have to wonder how he ever got the job in the first place This one is a comedy lovers delight and is well written and observed Second novel is rarely as good as the first one Khaled Hosseini is the exception as publishers expect too much and there is a special pressure on the author if the debut novel is great success Sheila O Flanagan wrote the good, honnest review I support 100%.

heroine, Nombeko, is remarkable And despite this being a farce, it s completely believable that remarkably intelligent people are born into all circumstances, and some find ways to thrive The circumstances of Holger s life are also believable And whether the events that bring these two together are remotely possible in a real world, they make for a fun ride, complete with all the errors in logic sheer laziness that accompany most human failures.Probably not for everyone, but lots of fun for those who like it Analfabeten som kunde r kna The Girl Who Saved The King of Sweden , Jonas

the best of her situation, and eventually saves the world The novel takes us from 1970 s South Africa to 21st century Sweden.In a picaresque novel, it is paramount to have a captivating group of characters, and nimble writing that compels the reader forward Jonasson s talent is magnificent, and his largesse and wily wit, as well as his ability to create a thrilling plot, kept me in suspense until the very end Nombeko is both humble and noble, a mathematical genius who lives by her wits and her virtuous cunning Then there are the twins in Sweden, Holger One and Holger Two But only one of them exists on paper The Holgers father is a fanatical republican who is determined to depose the monarchy When his wife gives birth to twins, he decides that he can keep one hidden at home, while one goes off to school Unfortunately, the one in school is none too bright, but is a fanatic like his father, while the non existent Holger Two is both intelligent and principled Inevitably, the Holgers and Nombeko cross paths All these people found themselves in nuclear weapons free Sweden Right next door to a three megaton bomb As it says in the intro, The statistical probability that an illiterate in 1970 s Soweto will grow up and one day find herself confined in a potato truck with the Swedish king and prime minister is 1 in 45,766,212,810 This, according to the calculations of the aforementioned illiterate herself One of my favorite sections of the novel is when Nombeko is forced into indentured servitude She is run over by moronic engineer, Westhuizen, in Johannesburg after a long journey on foot from her shantytown her goal is to make it to the National Library of Pretoria The judge decided in favor of the alcoholic engineer, who made it through engineering school through nepotism and cheating He is now in charge of a secret nuclear weapons program in South Africa Because of his stupidity and constant inebriation, and because of Nombeko s mathematical brilliance, she becomes his right hand man Officially, she is the cleaning woman This episode in Nombeko s life puts her in contact with Mossad Agent A, Mossad Agent B, and three Chinese woman skilled at making ancient, fraudulent pottery and in the poisoning of dogs also in forced servitude to Engineer Westhuizen Nombeko imagined that the engineer might soon be able to devote himself to his brandy full time he could sit and dream his way back to the years when it was possible to convince those around him that he had a clue As zany as this novel may sound in description, Jonasson s finesse in making this believably unbelievable story engrossing is because of the characters, particularly Nombeko and the Holgers His moral compass is a ticking time bomb, and he connects with the reader rather than condescending, so that I was in on his humor, and charmed by his narrative The translation from Swedish by Rachel Willson Broyles is luminous and lyrical I can t believe that the original text wasn t in English.Holger Two s problem of non existence, as well as the lack of birth certificate paperless Nombeko, provide for a deep and provocative philosophical theme in this novel about identity and permanence, as well as some fascinating real world questions.I can t recommend this unforgettable, supple, radiant novel enough
