His Writing Puts You There

I loved how Amor Towles writes. His vivid descriptions of the period, his knowledge of the history and how its woven into his writing. I first found Rules of Civility when trying to find audio CDs to make my long commutes tolerable. I actually began looking forward to my drives knowing that his wonderful storytelling was awaiting me. I can also highly recommend what I think is his only other book A Gentleman in Moscow...simply wonderful!
