The Return | Vicki L. Allen
post image

I have been through a whole roller-coaster of life events in the last few years which forced me to come off Litsy. But now I feel that things are stable enough for me to come back. I can't wait to catch up and re-integrate back into the Litsy community. I missed y'all!

I finished the book wishing it didn't end. Amor Towles makes you feel like you are inside every moment of the book. I love the way he writes. Of course I read most of the book as I myself moved to Manhattan so I am biased and that is my very own G&T in the picture 😉but still the story is wonderful, about love, loss, relationships and full of really amazing characters all set at the end of Depression in New York. Such a good book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

cariashley So you just moved into Manhattan? Welcome!! 🤗 2y
Reading_E Thank you! I am loving it! Especially the book stores! 😊 2y

Mehso-so

This was an impulse buy and a bumpy ride. the description on the back does not really match the plot but as I forced myself to keep reading I did get attached to the characters. For my liking the book jumps around too much and the delivery of the plot through one character telling a story to the protagonist is a little stale but I'm glad I finished it. Unfortunately I still wish I had read something else from my endless TBR instead. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have been away from Litsy for too long - life has thrown a few curveballs! Here is to me coming back in full swing! I am making a move to Manhattan in a few weeks and I'm incredibly excited that my apartment is walking distance to this bookstore! They admit they don't have anything to do with the original Shakespeare and Co but still :) I just have to work extra hard on that self control when I walk past... 😉😳😋🎉🤡📚

Dogearedcopy I'm so excited and happy for you! 😘 2y
Reading_E @dogearedcopy thank you!! I am excited and terrified at the same time! 2y

This is one of those books that made me sad because it had to end. I loved every word, every character, every little detail! The language is sharp and yet so vivid and the plot is really gripping. And as a Russian I also really appreciated the historical accuracy. I can not gush enough about it! One of my rare 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Eliza-beta Oh so excited to read it - thank you! 3y
Suzze Loved it. I have it sitting here trying to decide who to make read it first. 3y

As a Russian reading this, this really hits a nerve. While may be harsh, it is very accurate in observation.
