The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden, Jonas Jonasson
There are too many funny and wonderful quotes to be found in this novel by Jonas
Jonasson. The whole book grabbed me from the very first sentence.
I don’t want to ruin the plot, although at times it’s too ridiculous to be believed anyway! Suffice it to say, this was a winding rollercoaster of a read which kept its momentum to the very last line.
The character of Nombeko is written with the most parched dry wit I think I’ve ever read, so much so that I enjoyed that feeling of laughing out loud, all by myself in a crowded cafe.
Her interactions with those she meets along the way are both hilarious and real, and I waited with belief suspended to see what disaster would befall them next.
I can’t wait to read more by this author but thinking about it, I probably need a rest first!
