Book Review: A Gentleman in Moscow

Book Review #25: A Gentleman in Moscow (Amor Towles)

*****

An amazing book. Really the type of book you want to devour while drinking coffee on the Orient Express, but equally absorbing during the dog days of summer. Cozy, creative, feel-good, it takes a light view on Russian history from the Communist revolution to the 1970s or so as seen by a Count sentenced to house arrest within the premier hotel of Moscow. It’s such a creative premise for a book and while you would think the plot would become stilted due to the lack of movement, it absolutely does not. A++
