The Rules of Civility, video review

I just finished reading The Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. Here’s my book review video:

It is a shame for this book. The writing is truly brilliant, but it was squandered on a meandering, myopic, mélange of a story lacking enough plot to keep the reader engaged. Sure, the descriptions of New York, the set pieces of the rich and famous partying are intriguing in themselves, but without building toward anything, they fall flat.
