"Count Alexander Rostov lives in the Metropol Hotel, then he is put under house arrest in 1922 and told not to leave under threat of death.  The Count's life appears to be constricted and he does despair for a while, but life is what you make of it and soon his life has expanded far beyond what he ever imagined.  Towles takes what seems like one man's misfortune and spins a charming, marvelous tale that far exceeds the walls of the Metropol Hotel."--Reviewed by Percy
