Project Description

by Amor Towles

This book is so lovely. It definitely falls into the genre of literary fiction.

The language is so exquisite. It flows and feels much like poetry at times. I would often have to stop and just savor phrases before I moved on. It definitely makes you think about life, yearning, freedom, friendship and love. It makes you think of love a little bit of the romantic kind, but mostly love that you choose, whether that be special life-long friends, or children, biological or otherwise.

The Count is a gentleman indeed, and one that I felt privileged to be able to spend some time with.
