A Gentleman in Moscow

By Amor Towles

        Review by: Betsy

Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced to a life of house-arrest at the Metropol Hotel in Moscow for the crime of being Alexander Rostov, basically. Although it's a lovely hotel with interesting guests, he's given to understand that he's not to leave its walls for the remainder of his days; so without fuss or fanfare, he proceeds to adapt to his suddenly constrained circumstances. Over the next several decades, Alexander forms fast friendships, adopts a child, procures employment in the Metropol's famous restaurant, and learns every millimeter of his luxurious prison by heart. When years later his adopted daughter is in danger, the seemingly vapid prisoner-aristocrat springs into action, risking his life to secure her freedom.
