A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel by Amor Towles - Book Summary - Abbey Beathan (Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.) A novel about Count and how he was ordered to spend the rest of his life inside the walls of a luxury hotel. In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov was condemned to spend the rest of his life in the Metropol, a luxurious hotel. A Gentleman in Moscow feels like an emotional trip, where we empathise with Alexander Rostov's situation. At first, we feel impotence, due to the fact that the protagonist is locked in an attic room while the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are passing outside of the hotel's walls. But that's just the beginning, the interest part is what happens next. (Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Abbey Beathan. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way) "If a man does not master his circumstances then he is bound to be mastered by them." - Amor Towles The second part of the emotional journey alongside Rostov is one that was generated due to the solitude of being locked away with nothing to do. It gave him time to look deep within himself and enter a state of emotional discovery, one that would change his life for good. Amor Towles did a masterful job of describing intangible things in the most accurate and humane way. Filled with humor and an interesting cast of characters, dive into this unique novel that gives you a deeper understanding of what it means to be a person of purpose. P.S. A Gentleman in Moscow is an outstanding novel that stands out from the rest as a unique book. P.P.S. It was Albert Einstein who famously said that once you stop learning, you start dying.

Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Amor Towles's A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. PREVIEW: A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles is a novel about Count Alexander Ilyich Rostov, a Russian aristocrat who is condemned by Communists to spend the rest of his life confined in the Metropol, the capital's most glamorous hotel. The story opens on his trial in 1922, where he's shown leniency as a reward for having written a revolutionary poem that pre-dated the Russian Revolution. The only catch? If Rostov ever leaves the hotel, he will be executed. The novel unfolds over the course of the thirty-two years that Rostov spends under house arrest. The first thing to know about Count Rostov is that he didn't write the poem; his best friend Mishka did. The pair conspired to publish it under Rostov's name because, at the time, Mishka-who was not an aristocrat like Rostov-would have been murdered by the czar's regime for dissonance. (Rostov, in sharp contrast, was then a member of the protected class.) By the time the revolution began in 1918, Rostov was living in Paris. In the face of certain danger, he returned to Russia to help his grandmother shutter her estate. When that task was complete, he took up residence in one of the Metropol's finest suites.
