About the book

image4.3/5.0

The mega-bestseller with more than 2 million readers, soon to be a major television series From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Lincoln Highway and Rules of Civility, a beautifully transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.

Such a brilliant read!!! I thought that this would be a slow and slightly uneventful book. I was greatly wrong and I'm so happy for it!

I just have the soft spot for the gentleman character. I kept reading because of the main character. The story isn't that great great but still interesting at some point and still a good read.

There was a point in the middle where I put this book down and had to force myself to pick it back up again. Glad I finished, but "Good" is as good as I can say about it. Liked his other book much better.

The name and the first few pages sound a bit bland and I wouldn't have persevered if it hadn't been a book club book but I am so glad I did as it was excellent. The language is evocative the characters well drawn and the politics nuanced. Enjoy!
