Cute isn't the right word for this book but alas, it's the one that is coming to me right now. The Hundred Year Old Man is sort of a Swedish Forrest Gump in that he meets and advises people (like Presidents) but does it for a variety of reasons. I found the book charming. Yes! That's the world. I spent most of it smiling at the antics of Allan and his gang. Not a quick read but definitely worth the time.
