  1. Do you recall a time, however brief, when some people, some places and you seem to converge with a sense that something special was happening that could go on and on And yet, you were so caught up in the effortless unfolding of events that you were unaware of the magic until it was gone.Amor Towles 2011 novel, Rules of Civility , is his homage to 1938 Manhattan, its environs and a few youthful inhabitants It blends sly humor with engaging discovery about each other and themselves And leaves at l [...]


  2. Rules of Civility 2011 is set over one year in America in 1938, during the Great Depression and after the 1937 Recession.On the last night of 1937, poor 25 year old Katherine Katey Kontent, and her friend Eve Ross, meet rich Theodore Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, at the Hotspot jazz club Katey, the philosophical bookworm, has competition for Tinker Grey the energetic, beautiful Eve Ross Just as Tinker is getting closer to Katey, he becomes even attracted to Eve after a car crash, fueled by his [...]


  3. All praise to Towles he writes just the way he wants to He allows words to do amazing feats and thoughts to live just as they are What a joy, what a provocative joy I still have 19% to go on my Kindle, but I just had to stop to savor It s one of those books which makes you feel you will never find a suitable one for you It fits me just right It allows me to be free to write as I want to write It s Katey s life she gets to lead it.I had just finished A Gentleman in Moscow I thought well for somet [...]


  4. This book was laughably bad The author s attempt to tell us about early 20th Century New York full of silver Bentleys and beautiful rich people arguing in club rooms about how to make a gin fizz is laughable It s as if I wanted to write a book about slaves living on a plantation and I did my research by watching Shirley Temple movies or Gone With the Wind I don t know nothing about birthing no babies Seriously I no believed or cared about a single character or any one of the lines coming from th [...]


  5. I just finished , A Gentleman from Moscow It does not seem possible the same man wrote this book The narration was dreadful, I stopped listening after half an hour One should never assume anything, but, after reading the other book, one expected a similar form of writing It was not so His narrator in the other book was fabulous I could not wait to shut this off Had I read this one first, I never would have bought, A Gentleman in Moscow, which is a superb book.


  6. After reading A Gentleman in Moscow , which I thoroughly enjoyed, I sought out other works by Amor Towles Rules of Civility like his other work is beautifully written and draws you into the epoch with engaging characters that you create a connection with.Overall I enjoyed A Gentleman in Moscow Indeed I d rate it as one of my favourite novels alongside William Boyd s Any Human Heart However this is a cracking read and highly recommended.I look forward to reading future works by this talented stor [...]


  7. Over written, grotesquely improbable and without any discernible merit This was a shock having read A Gentleman In Moscow I looked forward to this book It was frightful The characters were utterly implausible not least the lead femal character whose inner musings have the authors male thumb print all over them This is not to say that the male characters are three dimensional They are non dimensional as they exist in no universe known currently to man or to science Could this have been written wh [...]
