Could not finish...

A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel - Amor Towles

One of the few books this year I have attempted to read but just could not finish. The writing was good but I felt the claustrophobic setting of the Metropol Hotel in Moscow and the adventures of disgraced Count Alexander Rostov soon lost my attention. It would therefore be very unfair of me to rate this book unfairly as I could not fault the literary style and flow of the writing of Amor Towles....maybe later in the year I will attempt to read again :)
