Review: A Gentleman in Moscow

I read A Gentleman in Moscow and gave it five stars.

Here is my review on Goodreads:

A Gentleman in Moscow begins in 1922 with the aristocratic Count Rostov being sentenced to confinement at the Hotel Metropol for the rest of his existence by a communist tribunal. How is he to survive? What is he to become? What follows is a story that is enchanting, intelligent, and one of the best books I have read in several years. Its warmth, humor, and spirit are a wonderful anecdote to the problems of modern living, and the difficulties of performing with grace under pressure. What I particularly enjoyed was the interplay of old and modern Russia that subscribed to different ideologies and methods of attaining similar ends. Neither is wrong, and neither is right. The past cannot be swept aside, nor can the future be ignored, and between the two stretches of time is the task given to each of us of surviving in the present, and how we ought to go about it. This is a tale of living, and I assure you it’s a good one.
