The day is here for our Rules of Civility discussion! What did you think of the novel? I waited until four days ago to start the book, and while I finished it with time to spare (yesterday, just after lunch) I won’t do that again. I felt rushed and didn’t take the time to enjoy the dialogue, which was really quite good. I’m going to start reading next month’s book straight away.
I do not want to taint the conversation with my opinions before it even gets started, so let’s meet in the comment section and get this Rules of Civility discussion going. I am curious to see if you gave it the same rating I did.
Update No. 1
The discussion was more than I dreamed possible. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on what made this book special.
Update No. 2
We discussed this book years ago as a new release. Much has happened since then! If I am perfectly honest, I do not remember much of the book! There is a lot of activity online about Rules of Civility and there is more talk about seeing this book on screen. I may pick it up and do a reread. A studio optioned the rights to the movie and chose two popular writers known for successful adaptations to handle the script.
The movie was in development at Lionsgate for some time, but it looked like it would never make it to the big screen. Then, long-form TV shows on cable gained acceptance (made studios a lot of money) and the project shifted over to cable. Amor Towles, the author, is happy about this development, and so should be the fans. There is an opportunity to keep more of the book when projects shift to cable. I am looking forward to watching the final product!
