A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

This has become my favourite all time read, given the space of time it covers from 1922 up to the 1950’s. It’s so well written.
The Count (who just wraps you round his finger) is just the supreme gentleman, and the picture in the back of the book just puts me in the mind of how he should be.
He was a thoughtful, caring person who was denied his freedom and kept under house arrest in a hotel for over 30 years. Even under these circumstances, he stretched his thoughts to do what he could to help others.
The final chapters left me reeling – it was so practical that he and Sophia came to the happy conclusion they deserved.
