A Gentleman in Moscow
- Written by: Amor Towles
- Narrated by: Nicholas Guy Smith
- Length: 17 hrs and 52 mins
Soon to be a major TV series starring Kenneth Branagh. On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov - recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt - is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol. Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval. Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?

Utterly beautiful and charming. Transported to the Metropol at the very first listen and gladly remained checked in for the entire duration. The Count and the entire cast of supporting characters are extremely endearing and memorable.
