Week 46 – Shelf Pleasure’s 2016 Reading Challenge
We can’t recommend our latest read, A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles, highly enough. This novel is fresh and new and like nothing we’ve read in a long while. After the Russian Revolution an aristocratic count is forced into house arrest at the Metropol hotel. What could’ve been a horrific ordeal turns out to be one of the best things that ever happened to him. The Count is a complex and interesting character. And the more invested you become in him, the more you hope that he triumphs over his oppressors. It’s historical fiction at its finest.
