    Beschreibung von Audible

    Editors Select, September 2016 - When we had our first child, my husband and I sullenly moved out of Manhattan, but Amor Towles was there to nurse me through that heartbreak with his debut novel and love letter to the city, Rules of Civility. Despite my perhaps unhealthy attachment to that book (I read it, then re-read it, then listened to it, then re-listened to it), I can say objectively it was one of the most crisp and intelligent books I've ever encountered. It's common to worry that a second book can't match the brilliance of a debut, but A Gentleman in Moscow doesn't disappoint. Though vastly different in tone and style, the same intelligence pulses under the surface. Continuing in the same epiphany-rich vein, keen observations, quotable moments, and tremendous insights emerge nearly every other paragraph. Long story short - and seriously there is so much more to say, but that's for my later review - don't miss this one. (Emily, Audible Editor)

    Inhaltsangabe

    The mega-best seller with more than two million readers, soon to be a major television series.

    From the number one New York Times-best-selling author of The Lincoln Highway and Rules of Civility, a beautifully transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel.

    In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

    Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “The book is like a salve. I think the world feels disordered right now. The count’s refinement and genteel nature are exactly what we’re longing for.” (Ann Patchett)

    “How delightful that in an era as crude as ours this finely composed novel stretches out with old-World elegance.” (The Washington Post)

    “Marvelous.” (Chicago Tribune)

    “The novel buzzes with the energy of numerous adventures, love affairs, twists of fate and silly antics.” (The Wall Street Journal)

    Philosophical and warm-hearted

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. The characters are brought to life through the author's vivid description on the one hand, and through the amazing speaker on the other hand. There are many philosophical thoughts and questions, some very useful for daily life and interaction with fellow men and society.
    You should not expect a dramatic climax, for, the story is told in a very calm and natural way (which I also appreciated very much).

    das Zuhören ist ein Vergnügen

    Wie schafft es ein russischer Herzog nach der kommunistischen Revolution trotz Anordnung von Hausarrest ein erfülltes und interessantes Leben zu führen. Durch Intelligenz, Einfühlungsvermögen, Wissen um Stärken und Schwächen der Menschen, mit denen er zu tun hat. Während es über weite Strecken einfach nur erfüllend ist, dem Lauf der Dinge zu folgen, wird es zum Schluss noch spannend, mit einer Wendung, die dem Charakter eines überzeugt russischen Heimat verbundenen Aristokraten voll gerecht wird.

    Wonderful story

    The story is really special and beautiful. The speaker has a good voice, the only thing that bothered me a little was that sometimes in dialogues it was hard to discern the characters, since he speaks everyone with the same voice and doesn't take long enough breaks when another person says something.

    Loved loved loved it!

    Geniale Geschichte, die sich genüsslich langsam entfaltet. Man lernt die Hauptfiguren in ihren Facetten kennen und lieben (oder auch hassen), bekommt ganz nebenbei ein bisschen was mit von der Geschichte und Kultur Russlands und fühlt sich von vorne bis hinten absolut entertained.

    absolutely fantastic

    the book highly refined, wonderfully written, subtle sense of humour, valuable insight of those times, intense without even noticing.
    the narrator couldn't have done a better job: exceptional by all means.

    Superb

    A very enjoyable tale, magnificently told, answering in the end, the question we ask all along. From beginning to end non-stop subtle suspense.

    Pity: Wrong Pronounciation of Russian Names

    I presume that many of the listeners are familiar with things Russian, so why have someone read the novel who can‘t pronounce Russian words properly?
