A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

A Gentleman in Moscow

I will be totally honest with all of you. This is the best book I have read in at least 20 years!!! I have given a lot of books 5***** ratings, but all of them pale in comparison to this lovely, literary tome by Amor Towles. If you enjoy well written books, if you enjoy a book that makes you think about issues as you are reading it, and if you enjoy a fine story then this is a book for you.
No sense going into the plot since it spans decades and involves a man who is put under house arrest in the Metropole Hotel in Moscow. His friendships, his relationships, how he copes and the connections to the past, present and future are all explored with absolutely beautiful prose and dialogue.
I will not go back and change my ratings on previous works, but nothing I have read compares to the beauty of this work and the sheer joy I experiences while reading this book.
I have already downloaded Rules of Civility by this author and look forward to another lovely reading experience!!
