A Gentleman in Moscow

91tmjsgemwlA Gentleman in Moscow by Amir Towles was neither an easy nor quick read. It took me longer than most books I have read of late. This followed a false start with 5 other books that I started and abandoned, which is why I have not posted in some time. The book tells the story of Alexander Rostov who is under house arrest at the Metropol in Moscow. While there, he befriends Nina, and ends up, years later, as Nina’s daughter’s guardian/father. It is a slow and sentimental book, which was enjoyable, but slow. Did I say it’s slow??
