Review: A Gentleman in Moscow

A Gentleman in Moscow A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is 1922 when Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov's life is spared, and instead he is sentenced to spend his remaining days inside the walls of Moscow's Metropol Hotel. Over the next 30+ years, through the Count's daily interactions, love affairs, friendships, and even service as head-waiter, readers are given glimpses of history unfolding even as time somewhat stands still within the luxury of the Metropol. Through witty tales, charming encounters, and sly maneuvers, Alexander Ilyich finds purpose in what was intended to be purgatory.

Stick with this one to the end and you won't be disappointed!

Since the coal mining days, the landscape has been restored, providing a scenic retreat from urban Korea with plenty of recent air. Beyond snowboarding and golf, climbing is a popular for those not on the casino table. The company can also be|can be} building a suspended glass walkway to enjoy the mountain vistas, a luge track, a performance fountain and “cultural park” recreating the coal mining neighborhood lifestyle.
