'This novel is astonishing, uplifting and wise. Don't miss it' Chris Cleave

'No historical novel this year was more witty, insightful or original than Amor Towles's A Gentleman in Moscow' Sunday Times, Books of the Year

'Charming ... shows that not all books about Russian aristocrats have to be full of doom and nihilism' The Times, Books of the Year

'[A] supremely uplifting novel ... It's elegant, witty and delightful - much like the Count himself.' Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year

On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov - recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt - is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol.

Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval.

Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?

A Gentleman in Moscow
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 04.04.2018

Sometimes there are books that are so well-loved by customers that they recomend them to you for a change and this is one of them. After a nice chat with a lovely lady, who told me that she buys this book for all her friends and left with 3 copies... Sometimes there are books that are so well-loved by customers that they recomend them to you for a change and this is one of them. After a nice chat with a lovely lady, who told me that she buys this book for all her friends and left with 3 copies yet again, I just had to get one myself and see the magic myself. It's easy to say that I had really high expactations and this book still blew me away. Lyrically written, witty, charming, enchanting, I can't praise Amor Towles enough for this masterpiece. A treasure to be remembered! 5 stars
