"A Gentleman in Moscow immerses us in another elegantly drawn era with the story of Count Alexander Rostov. When, in 1922, he is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the count 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 a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery..."--… (mere)

4.5 stars

This is beautiful, thoughtful and entertaining. After huge change ups in the Russian government, he is given house arrest in a hotel indefinitely. Despite being stuck there for decades, he doesn't seem to miss out on much. Someone is always visiting. Something is always happening. Even when he can't leave to witness an event that would mean so much to him, he stays positive. This could be a tale about being miserable and missing out on life, but he always has the very best outlook. I recommend it for sure. ( )

I wish I could give this 10 stars to make up for any unfortunate soul who rated it lower than 5. It is simply one of the greatest books I have ever read. I haven't read Towles' first novel, but the idea of this one intrigued me--a nobleman (a Count) sentenced to life in a luxury Moscow hotel in 1922. What Towles does with this constrained existence is simply marvelous. Count Rostov is one of the great characters of fiction. A man who we all should emulate. It wouldn't do to give away any of the plot, for it is each small development, each character as we come to know them over the 3+ decades that the story encompasses, that makes this such an unforgettable novel. You'll never imagine what happens, and the story could hardly be told more perfectly. It will make you smile, it will bring you to tears on more than one occasion, and it will even leave you with a bit of hope for the survival of the human race. Topping it off, Towles is an incredible writer. There aren't necessarily passages you'll be quoting, but almost every paragraph is a gem. The story is told at exactly the right pace. There is never a dull moment, and the ending isn't dragged out. This is a classic for the ages. ( )

This one of the most beautifully written books I have read. There are pieces that could be stand alone poems. This author has a wonderful gift of descriptive and emotive writing. The story was a bit slow then gets moving. Only reason it didn’t get a 5 from me. I would definitely encourage anyone who enjoys historical fiction to read this. ( )

This book is excellent. It is believable and has historical information that makes it interesting. The main character is admirable and consistent in persona. I liked the philosophical considerations in the book, which consider various aspects of life. The depiction of Russia over the years of the story is logical and insightful. I strongly recommend this book. ( )

The book, set in Moscow between 1922 and 1954, focuses on one hotel that is miraculously preserved, a protagonist and his side kicks who are carefully protected and excluded from the history happening outside the doors - it is a fun read in a magical realism kind of way, with lots of interesting tidbits. But I found the book too far fetched in parts. ( )

In his remarkable first novel, the best-selling Rules of Civility (2011), Towles etched 1930s New York in crystalline relief. Though set a world away in Moscow over the course of three decades, his latest polished literary foray into a bygone era is just as impressive. Sentenced as an incorrigible aristocrat in 1922 by the Bolsheviks to a life of house arrest in a grand Moscow hotel, Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov is spared the firing squad on the basis of a revolutionary poem he penned as an idealistic youth. Condemned, instead, to live his life confined to the indoor parameters of Metropol Hotel, he eschews bitterness in favor of committing himself to practicalities. As he carves out a new existence for himself in his shabby attic room and within the magnificent walls of the hotel-at-large, his conduct, his resolve, and his commitment to his home and to the hotel guests and staff together form a triumph of the human spirit. As Moscow undergoes vast political changes and countless social upheavals, Rostov remains, implacably and unceasingly, a gentleman. Towles presents an imaginative and unforgettable historical portrait.--Flanagan, Margaret Copyright 2016 Booklist

Hoe goed weet ik nog

Dat het ons te voet kwam bezoeken
En een tijd onder ons heeft gewoond
Een melodie in de gestalte van een poema

Welnu, waar is ons doel nu?

Als zovele vragen
Beantwoord ik deze
Met afgewende blik een peertje schillend.

Ik wens goedenacht met een buiging
En loop door verandadeuren
De glorieuze eenvoud binnen
Van weer een gematigde lente.

Maar dit weet ik wel:

Het is niet verloren geraakt tussen het herfstblad op het Petersplein.
Niet tussen de as in de asbakken van het Athenaeum.
Niet in de blauwe pagodes van fijn Chinees porselein.

Het ligt niet in Vronsky's zadeltassen;
Niet in Sonnet XXX, strofe een;
Niet op nummer zevenentwintig rood...


                                    Waar is het nu? (regel 1-19)
                         Graaf Alexander Iljitsj Rostov    1913
