This book was a great read!! It did have over 500 pages but it was worth reading every page. A treme

A fascinating read!!!!!

Well written but safe and pretentious

To begin I will give Towles credit when credit is due, he is an excellent and eloquent writer. However the story itself despite so much promise, remained in the safe zone the entirety of the novel. Every single time the protagonist was faced with a potentially challenging or dangerous situation, the disaster was immediately averted. The safe area that the novel treads water in, soon made the story predictable and boring.

Wonderful novel from cover to cover!

Couldn’t put it down….

Fantastic Book!

Loved this book, start to finish!

I Didn't Want the Book to End

It's rare that I'm captivated throughout an entire book, but such was the case with A Gentleman in Moscow. I miss the Count already! Amor Towles has his own unique formula in the telling a of a story, and I can't wait to read the rest of his books. His choice and delivery of words will cause you to feel very close to the main character. If you're looking for a book to savor, this is it!

A beautifully written, fascinating book

One of those books whose storylines follow after you for months. A beautifully written book. I don't want to spoil the details, because its such a simple story in many ways, but fascinatingly told. Will read it again to soak it all in a second time.

The finest book about nothing ive ever read

I've read this 4 times now and plan on reading it a few more. its a very comforting book being sophisticated, elegant and simple all at the same time. I have yet to see it's equal looking forward to Towles "Rules of Civility"
