Im loving reading The Gentleman In Moscow. I usually wait to share until I have finished a book. But hey, Its my blog and I wanted to share.
Im still trying to figure out her message. I love the writing style. Her main character isn’t in many ways at all what the story is about yet she plays a central role.
In this story, A writer, off to participate in a panel, meets along her way various characters. Just as in outline, the stories they relay are the novel.
What happens when a novelist travels from Britain to Greece to teach a week-long summer course on writing? Not a whole hell of a lot. Fear not, there is a quite a lot packed in these pages. The narrator, Faye, is a very good listener and we are treated to all she takes in: from her neighbor, an older gentleman, on the plane; from fellow workers, friends, students in her class. All have interesting stories to tell.
