LACPA’s Spring Book Club Meetings
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

Based on a compilation of Amazon reviews:

A Gentleman in Moscow is an utterly entertaining novel by Amor Towles.  It is set in The Metropol, the famed Moscow hotel, where wealthy Count Alexander Rostov lives under house arrest for a poem deemed incendiary by the Bolsheviks.  There he meets Nina, a precocious young girl who holds the keys to the entire hotel, wonders what it means to be a princess, and will irrevocably change his life. Despite being confined to the hotel, the Count lives an absorbing, adventure-filled existence, filled with capers, conspiracies and culture. Alexander Rostov is unflinchingly (and hilariously for readers) devoted to his station, even when forced to wait tables, play hide and seek, or confront communism. Towles magnificently conjures the grandeur of the Russian hotel and the vibrancy of the characters reside or work there.  As decades of Russian history are occurring, Rostov finds ways to make his life purposeful despite his confinement with wit, intelligence and humor.  Wonderfully written, the adventure-filled plot and rich characters are engrossing and intriguing.  One Amazon reviewer cleverly described it as “‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and ‘Eloise’ meet all the Bond villains.” 


Incidentally, on Amazon the novel received a score of 4.7 of 5 stars, 79% of readers give it 5 stars and 13% gave it 4 stars.
