It is a very easy, short read. You will probably recognize many of the proverbs as you are reading it.

What do you think about The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared ?? I've read so many reviews and people seem to have mixed feelings, so many readers who're not quite sure if they liked it or not.
