New read. It’s nice to jump into fiction after a non-fiction book 📚

Šta reći o ovoj knjizi...
Ako ste opsednuti redom i disciplinom, bićete oduševljeni što svako poglavlje počinje rečju na slovo A. Svako.
Ako volite vina, želećete da probate sve grofove kombinacije glavnih jela i vina.
Povezanost fikcije i istorije je očaravajuća.
A kraj knjige... Nisam očekivala to, iskreno, nisam ni razmišljala o kraju knjige koliko sam uživala u čitanju.
Knjiga je napisana tako da vas postepeno zavodi.
Divni likovi, neusiljeni razgovori, emocije u njenom najlepšem obliku.
I za kraj... U ovo ludo vreme ne škodi podsetiti se kako izgleda gospodin.
📚
Thank you @amortowles for this wonderful gift!

So you now have to live in a hotel...the premise of this is brilliant and it draws you in. It lost me a little toward the end...

처음 봤을 때부터 나한테는 당신 안의 차분함이 보였어요. 사람들이 책에 써놓았지만 실제로 갖고 있는 사람은 거의 없는 것 같은, 내면의 고요함 같은 것. 그래서 속으로 이런 생각을 했죠. 저 여자는 어떻게 저럴 수 있지? 그러다가 저건 후회가 없는 사람만이 가능하다는 생각이 들었어요. 뭔가 결정을 내릴 때 ・・・・・・ 아주 차분한 마음으로 단호하게 결정을 내리는 사람만 가능한 일이라는 생각. 그게 나를 멈칫하게 했죠. 그래서 그걸 다시 보고 싶어서 참을 수가 없었어요.
올 한 해가 지독했던 것은 내 탓입니다. 하지만 아무리 힘들 때에도, 당신은 항상 내가 다르게 살았더라면 될 수 있었던 모습을 언뜻 보여주었습니다.
내가 어디로 가는지는 나도 잘 모르겠습니다. 하지만 결국 어디에 발길이 멈추든 나는 매일 당신의 이름을 부르며 하루를 시작할 겁니다

✒Some years ago, I bought a 19th century portrait of an unknown figure in a Paris arcade. Ever since, that painting has hung on the wall by my desk. So, I suppose the Count is also based a little on him…

'모스크바의 신사' 쓴
에이모 토울스 이메일 인터뷰에서 인상적이었던 건, 작가가 워드로 작성한 인터뷰 답변지에
이 사진을 첨부해 보내줬다는 것.
그리고 위와 같은 문장으로 사진을 설명했다.
.
몇 년 전 파리에서 산 19세기 초상으로, 모델이 누구인지 모른다고. 그러나 책상 앞에 이 그림을 걸어놓고 있었으므로 조금은 백작이 이 인물에서 영향받았을 거라 생각한다는...
.
내 마음 속 로스토프 백작은 조금 더 위트 있는 표정이지만, 선량해 보이는 그림속 인물 역시 백작 캐릭터의 일부이겠지.

This book is one of our all time favs. Count Alexander Rostov is placed under house arrest in the Metropol hotel in Moscow, for the crime of aristocracy. The story weaves through decades of history in Russia and touches on incredibly poignant moments in each of the characters interactions with one another. It is impossible to describe this book and do it justice. A truly joyous read written by @amortowles

Tonight we have the last Buronga Book Club for the year! Remember to bring a plate to share and get ready to listen to our Russian music playlist, featuring the seasonably appropriate Nutcracker from Tchaikovsky. Classic banger.

See you at 6PM, Buronga Library, or face the wrath of the Kremlin.

Prawdziwie smakowita książka z booktouru u @mamopoczytajsobie . Z opisu wydawcy: "Wszystko zmienił jeden wiersz… To przez niego hrabia Rostow musiał zamienić przestronny apartament w Metropolu, najbardziej ekskluzywnym hotelu Moskwy, na mikroskopijny pokój na poddaszu, z oknem wielkości szachownicy. Dożywotnio. Taki wyrok wydał bolszewicki sąd". Czyta się szybko, choć jest dość gruba. Ale jakże przyjemna! Historia z początku XX wieku stanowi ważne tło, ale nie męzy czytelnika. Bohaterowie są wyraziści i ciekawie zarysowani. Dialogi inteligentne, mnóstwo nawiązań do kultury, sztuki, filozofii. Idealna lektura na grudniowy wieczór !

Books I read this year: “A Gentleman in Moscow” written by Amor Towles is a story about a Russian aristocrat who is under house-arrest in a palatial hotel. He’s suddenly left in charge of raising a little girl. The novel is half about aristocratic opulence and half about human emotions. Since I’m not a fancy person I couldn’t relate to all the details about which wine goes with which dish. But the emotional core of the story is moving and beautiful. You can kind of guess where the novel is headed to in the end but still you’ll be happy about the way it ended. #agentleman in #moscow #amortowles #bookcover #illustration #sketch #blackandwhitephotography #books #bookstagram

spending my Saturday afternoon in my favorite chair, devouring A Gentleman in Moscow, the Amor Towles book my gentleman has been wanting me to read for awhile. I dove in not knowing what to expect, and had to stop and take a picture of page 103 because of this paragraph: “For on Christmas Eve, when his father finally gave the signal and he and Helena were allowed to pull the doors apart - there was the twelve foot spruce lit up from trunk to tip and garlands hanging from every shelf. There were the bowls of oranges from Seville and the brightly colored candies from Vienna. And hidden somewhere under the tree was that unexpected gift...Such is the magic of Christmas in childhood...” 🎄🎁 glad my book slump is over. just don’t tell the gentleman he was right. hugs and 👸🏻, dina

Kdybych měla sestavit TOP 5 letošních přečtených knih, Gentleman v Moskvě by tam byl a nejspíš by se tlačil na první místo :-)
V Gentlemanovi v Moskvě se autor opět projevuje jako brilantní romanopisec. Tak, jako se mu v Pravidlech zdvořilosti hravě povedlo navodit “fitzeraldovskou” atmosféru konce 30. let, v Gentlemanovi se ocitneme v moskevském hotelu, který je plný šlechticů jak ze stránek Dostojevského. Jako kdyby měla každou chvíli do haly vplout Anna Karenina… Což je samozřejmě nesmysl, neb se kniha odehrává v úplně jiné době :-) Ale kdo si oblíbil ruský realismus, jistě mě pochopí... Ačkoliv se téměř celý Gentleman v Moskvě odehrává v prominentním hotelu, postava aristokrata hraběte Alexandra Iljiče Rostova nás provede 30 lety dějin Ruska. Od éry vzniku Sovětského svazu v roce 1922, přes válku až k nástupu Chruščova k moci v roce 1953. Dokonalý gentleman hrabě Rostov společně se zaměstnanci hotelu a svými přáteli glosuje prudké změny, kterými si země a její obyvatelstvo prošlo. A i když je uvězněn mezi čtyřmi stěnami, jako “bývalý člověk”, sečtělý a zcestovalý vede dobrodružný a plnohodnotný život.
Amor Towles je velký vypravěč, který si právem zaslouží všechny superlativy, se kterými se o něm literárních kruzích mluví. V Českém překladu jsou dostupné dvě jeho knihy - Pravidla zdvořilosti (Vyšehrad, překlad Julie Tesla) a právě Gentleman v Moskvě (Vyšehrad, překlad Martina Šímová). Otázka do pranice pro @albatrosmedia - dočkáme se překladu i Eve in Hollywood?

Real happy I saved A Gentleman in Moscow until I had finished my Goodreads reading challenge. This way I really could pace myself and savour this beautiful novel. A sure 5 ⭐ read!

“To have even one year when you’re presented with choices that can alter your circumstances, your character, your course—that’s by the grace of God alone. And it shouldn’t come with out a price.”
.
It feels almost providential that I decided to pick Rules of Civility up this month. It would have made a perfect last read of the year, but I won’t complain about reading it in early December. The end of the year always makes me reflective, and that’s exactly what this book is—a reflection on a momentous year for our main character as told from decades in the future. And Amor Towles really made that year—1938—and the main character—Katey Kontent—come alive for me. With beautiful prose, compelling and complicated characters, and snappy dialogue reminiscent of the era’s movies, this book was a true pleasure to read, even if it made me a little wistful at the end.

Definition of a Classic:
Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.
EnglishGrammar.org

In the wake of my first Ann Patchett, today over on my new blog, I am sharing some thoughts about what makes a classic novel and few of my favorite modern examples. Link in bio...

Hint...Amor Towles and Donna Tartt join Ann Patchett.

What are some novels you feel will last the test of time?

Unfortunately I didn't get to finish this book when I started it because life got in the way 🍃 but will definitely pick it up soon 💭 I know I'll love it because I was already loving it the first time and I still remember everything that happened ✨ I also love this time period in Russian history so I always get to learn more.
