I have been spending my evenings, mornings, parts of my days and sometimes the wee hours of the morning with Alexander Rostov. He’s a gentleman through and through. He’s kind, a father figure to some. He’s smart. He’s adaptable — he has to be. I don’t want it to end, but end it must. I’m 70% the way through A Gentleman in Moscow.

The book reviewer assures me that you will be relieved to escape the Count at the end of your time together.
The book reviewer was wrong.
This sounds wonderful. I’m realizing that a whole month of books is going to result in me having a very tall pile of unread books beside my bed.
Haha, I know! I finished it at 4 a. m. (woke up at 1 and couldn’t sleep). It is a delightful book.
I have been meaning to read this because a friend of mine told me that the main character is without question our deceased beloved friend Gordon (https://indigobunting.wordpress.com/2014/10/02/notes-to-gordon/, https://indigobunting.wordpress.com/2013/10/04/a-series-of-things-the-bow-tie/).
You really should read it, especially if the main character is the spirit of your friend.
Also — funny, I remember reading all your posts about Gordon but never commented on them. I am ashamed!
But yes, Alexander Rostov is most certainly Gordon.
