it was amazing

This is, without a doubt, the most uplifting novel I have read in years. Beautifully written and engrossing from start to finish, it is the story of a Russian nobleman who is placed under indefinite house arrest in the Metropol Hotel after the Russian Revolution. Over decades of confinement, he finds amusement, friendship, contentment, and love in the most unlikely places. Every twist of the plot - and there are many - is artfully crafted. This is not a quick read, but a book whose delicious use of language invites you to linger. Literary fiction at its best.
