A Gentleman in Moscow
A Gentleman in Moscow By Towles, Amor Audiobook CD - 2016 | Unabridged

It's 1922 and Count Alexander Rostov has become a former person assigned to live out his days in the Metropol Hotel. As the decades pass, Rostov observes the historic changes in Russia through the eyes of the hotel's staff, guests, and ever-changing parade of government officials. As the outer trappings of his former aristocratic life are stripped away, the Count discovers his real purpose when fate delivers a young girl into his safekeeping. As much a study of Russian history, philosophy, and literature, this detail-laden novel takes you into lost eras from the the late 19th to the mid 20th centuries.
