5 out of 5 stars.
It was our book club selection for this month, so I was power-reading it last Sunday AT THE BEACH.
Where it was sunny.
It (the book) is set in Moscow, and it's about a gentleman. A count.
Who is under house arrest in 1922 and must stay inside the Metropol Hotel or he will be shot.
The sentences are works of art to be savored.
And the story is compelling and delightful, as are the various characters who visit and work at the hotel.
On the drive home, I pointed my camera out the passenger side window:
I love BC.
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Writers. Especially those who write good books.
2. All the benches at White Rock. SO many places to sit and read. Or people watch.
3. It's Spring.
