    Wonderful read

    I had to slow myself down with Amor's Towles book. It was so delicious in its language and imagery, that I needed time to let the story unfold slowly. Terrific narrative and I was completely immersed in the characters and timeline. I took some time to look up pictures of New York City in 1938 to give me better perspectives of the places and people. I highly recommend this novel. Well done!

    Elegant Writing

    Mr Towles writes in flowing sentences using beautiful language. That aspect of his novel is much appreciated. The plot is less interesting and often confusing. It is not a spell binder, but this period piece was, nonetheless, entertaining.

    Slow

    A slow account of a womens life in new york starting in the 30s. Boring amd slightly depressing. Although a few decent takes on the quirks of life.

    Rules of Civility

    One of those books that you think about between reading sessions and can't wait to return to.
