A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You have been blessed if you have ever had one of those meals that stays with you. The food excelled, friendships strengthened, strangers intrigued, and you learned valuable insights. The warmth and comfort of the experience sustained you when times were difficult.
Reading A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel By Amor Towles is just such a feast. The language is wonderful, rich and expressive. The story is deeply satisfying. The characters are deep and attractive. The observations are subtle and yet powerful. And when you finish the book, you will be sad that there is not more to be read.
The good news is that the story is good enough that in a year or so, you can come back and take the journey all over again.
