  1. Ett mästerverk!
    Birgitta Agazzi, 4 maj 2021

    En sådan konstig historia tyckte jag först när jag hörde om denna bok: en rysk greve blir under Sovjetunionens första tid dömd att tillbringa sitt liv på ett lyxhotell. Hur sedan författaren lyckas berätta om detta, så det blir både dråpligt och ibland lite sorgligt och av och till spännande är ett under. Hur han lyckas beskriva inte bara den nya politiska situationen utan också hur en enskild individ av den forna överklassen klarar av att möta detta. Han visar sig vara en livsfilosof och fr...

[A] supremely uplifting novel ... It's elegant, witty and delightful - much like the Count himself. * Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year * A comic masterpiece . . . very funny, tender and as laughably accurate an account of the dismal nature of life in Soviet Russia as one could hope for . . . Quite apart from the ingeniously ludicrous plot and the acutely drawn characters, what adds to the joy of this book is the precision of Towles style. Again and again he conveys exactly the right impression with a deliciously surprising choice of words . . . a sheer delight. -- William Hartson * Daily Express * A work of great charm, intelligence and insight. -- Nick Rennison * Sunday Times * No historical novel was more witty, insightful and original * Sunday Times, Culture Magazine * Elegant sentences, wonderful characters and inventive storytelling . . . This is everything a novel should be: charming, witty, poetic and generous. An absolute delight. * Mail on Sunday * This novel is astonishing, uplifting and wise. Dont miss it. * Chris Cleave * I just reread A Gentleman in Moscow ... It's a wonderful book at any time, and this time it brought home to me how people find ways to be happy, make connections, and make a difference to one another's lives, even in the strangest, saddest and most restrictive circumstances. -- Tana French * Good Housekeeping * I think the world feels so disordered right now. The counts refinement and genteel nature are exactly what were longing for. His world was also in shambles but he maintained his grace and humor. There is so, so much to love in this book as we keep company with the endlessly entertaining Count . . .[This] novel is wistful, whimsical and wry and elegantly captures that most apposite of lessons: 'By the smallest of one's actions, one can restore some sense of order to the world'. Brilliant * Sunday Express * A Gentleman in Moscow is a tale abundant in humour, history and humanity, with a poignant message about time passing. That Towles also makes this rollicking good fun is no mean feat. * Sunday Telegraph * WINNING . . . GORGEOUS . . . SATISFYING . . . TOWLES IS A CRAFTSMAN * New York Times Book Review * Towles use of language is an absolute pleasure to read and you cant help but savour every last word . . . What makes it a great work of historical fiction is the apt creations the author builds outside the hotel walls in a truly tumultuous time. Towles creates such a memorable character in Rostov and this book brings something for everyone - humour, history, friendship and philosophy * Irish Times *
