dillydallygames - Lots of loose ends
A story wonderfully told but it left a lot of loose ends.
srormy1 - Lincoln Highway
Such a great book! So we’ll done, a good story, humor and a marvelous reflection on life. Couldn’t put it down
djames1959 - More good stuff from Mr. Towles
Easy, breezy, twisty, and misty. Draws you into the characters with an easy prose while still surprising you with each plot twist.
Loyola’67+‘70 - A Fun Book
Towles gets better with each book. Not only is this Lincoln Highway story engaging, fun and exciting, it’s a very easy read…the words pop off the pages. I wish there was a sequel for the Lincoln Highway.
DirtPeddler - Wineluffer
A great storyteller that weaves people together in the most captivating way. I couldn’t put it down.
3Mbysdad - Boring
Ironic that the characters talk about the glacial pace of The Count of Monte Cristo. This book is flat-out boring and the characters are unbelievable. The meditations of 18-year olds on life’s great truths and the profound dialogue of an 8-year old become grating. I don’t get why people like this book. Gave up on it.
gypsyflutterby - Tales of human nature
This story was mesmerizing. I couldn’t put it down. The characters and individual stories of each person intertwining with each other wove a spectacular tapestry of the human condition.
musicsaver - Lincoln Highway
Another magnificent albeit more complex tale by the talented Mr. Towles.
cjtrips - A wonderful read!
I first found Amor Towles when I read A Gentleman In Moscow. I loved his writing. I loved his way with words and expression and flow. I felt as if I were right in the middle of his story, watching from a distance. This book, The Lincoln Highway is now my favorite book of Towles! Such a journey. Again, his way with words is so exceptional and so rewarding to read! I can’t wait for his next book and my next adventure!
Jundygirl - The Lincoln Highway
Towels does not disappoint. Written beautifully, with his subtle style of humor and excellent character development, “The Lincoln Highway “ is a trip definitely worth taking!
itsmsnotmrs - The Lincoln Highway
What a fabulous page turner of a book… in a fun, non horrific Steven King type of nostalgic romp with some not so typical young people and an eight year old boy, this story covers a lot of ground. Wonderful read!
Jim Corbin - An absolute delight
The adventures of Emmett, Billy, Duchess, Wooly, and the rest of the characters take twists and turns on many levels … some of them humorous and some profound. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Jerrman - Somewhat Unexpected and Different
Having read Towle’s other books with great satisfaction (particularly A Gentleman from Moscow), I found this novel to be very different in tone and far less compelling. I found the jumping of narrative from one character to another distracting. Also, the young protagonist’s language, thoughts and actions seemed beyond his years. The boy was either a budding genius or a mystical, unexplained figure that I, being neither, couldn’t quite grasp. But, the author certainly has a way with language that often requires further thought.
cannedarts - Lincoln Highway
Thoroughly enjoyable book for the interesting characters and the Odyssey of a cross country trip in 1953. Towles has a wonderful way of expressing thoughts and ideas that caused me to want to highlight sentences on nearly every page. Am not sure I enjoyed this as much as Towles other two books, but still wouldn’t have missed this journey with an ace storyteller. Highly recommend.
Cut wood - Very enjoyable
One of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in the last couple of years. Beautiful writing and fun story.
catsandreading - Amazing
An amazing book! Going to read his others now.
nkatz1 - Wonderful characters
I loved this book! Such an amazing and entertaining cast of characters whose travels take them to unexpected places in a turning twisting journey. Highly recommended, along with Towles’ other books, which are VERY different - from how book and from each other.
My2Cens - Perfect
A beautiful, evocative, and perfectly crafted story in which the characters drip with humanity. This book, like A Gentleman in Moscow, is a treasure.
B Fog - Great novel
Stick with it, you will be rewarded
ljb24! - Fabulous
Thank you, Mr. Towles. The development of character, the depiction of events and changing morality…absolutely a wonderful enriching read.
OriginalRB - I rarely give 5 stars.
I liked this book because placed the characters in realistic tough situations. And I liked the fiction that everything always worked out okay.
deckelb - The Lincoln Highway
I just can’t get into this book and don’t see what the hype is about.
highlander198 - Wonderful writing and characters
I just wish it didn’t end as it did. I wanted so much more. Maybe there will be a sequel?
KVicks27 - Best Book I have read this year!
What a wonderfully written book. I fell in love with the characters and didn’t want the story to end. I can only hope to have a sequel one day so I can spend more time with Emmet, Sally and Billy. This is hands down the best book I read in 2021.
Caitaz - Loved this book!
Adventurous, exciting, beautifully written. One of my favorite books of 2021!
"Mr. Jerry" - The Lincoln highway
Interesting book with an awful and disappointing ending. As though the author just got tired and called it quits to get it over with it
JimS5 - Lincoln Highway
Genius as always.
Cindyhon - Shocking ending
The Lincoln Highway is one of the best books I’ve read! All the twists and turns kept me wanting to read more! I’ve never read any books by this author, but I’ll definitely read more of his books!
Mumford an zac - Read it!
Great storytelling with deep characters and interesting settings. Method of telling the tale was outstanding.
JNoinDC - Disappointed an awful follow up
I loved A Gentleman in Moscow. This an awful follow up. I couldn’t care less about the characters. They all seem rather slow witted. And if another book I read has a precocious child in it…I guess Covid had something to do with that.
TCJ320 - Perfect Book
Fantastic book by one of the greatest writers alive.
waldhaus1 - A retelling of a classic myth
The reader is left to figure out which classic and to enjoy the telling in all it's delightfulness. It is said the are really only a few plots with all stories and all literature being variants, retellings. Towels is telling us that by making professor Abernathy's book a main character.
Reading this was rewarding and I suspect rereading will be even more rewarding,
The characters all come to life for me. In my mind that is the Mark of a well written book. Each character follows the trajectory of their destination. The ending is fulfilling as the characters have followed their personal roads to their destiny.
At first I think they don't all live happily ever after but then I realized they do.. Each characters ever after is his or her place in the story, in the tellers mind and the lenders imagination. The characters of the great myths come back to life in each retelling. They are a form living in our imagination waiting to be recalled.
ibooksprefered - Don’t bother
SLOW! Couldn’t get through it. Story could be told in half the length. Do not recommend.
di pinto - Disappointing
Towles’ erudite and elegant writing style could not save this book. While the narrative seemed promising at the outset, it became repetitive and fragmented by the constant shifts in point of view. The character portraits were good, and their backgrounds somewhat interesting, but the main characters were odd and difficult to relate to; nor did they change or grow. I just couldn’t get into this book. The completely unsatisfying ending was the final deal breaker for me. The ending of the story was a return to the beginning – like the Odyssey that the book continuously references. It left numerous unanswered questions that I won’t mention so as not to be a spoiler. The book was unique, but otherwise not up to the high standards of Towles’ earlier works. I give it three stars. Although this book was disappointing I look forward to Towles’ next endeavor, for he truly is a gifted writer.
Run escape - Excellent read
Amazing character development. So we’ll written. I didn’t want it to end.
jankbar - The lincoln highway
This book reminds me of a bad dream.
The characters are always trying to get to California but things just keep prolonging their plans.
The ending was very disappointing. Jankbar
JgTaste - 2 for 3
The Lincoln Highway was long on miles, long on words and short on what had been the eloquence of masterful story telling in his first two wonderful novels.
juliusa - Eh
Much less than I expected. Never vested in the characters, superficial view of NYC, episode upon episode cliffhanger style with no return on your investment of time. Some moving moments but all too rare. At the three quarter point it got boring. Good writing, poor storytelling. I’d say stay away.
MWXIV - Three’s a charmer
Towles’ style is an entertaining ride of a read. Each of his 3 books tells a unique story. Wishing his 4th book was out tomorrow!
Six rivers red - Long way from home
The same circumstances, settings and happenings repeated thru the eyes of the 4 main characters over and over. The author is very proud of the learned Greek mythological characters as they are incorporated and used for comparison way too frequently. Funky ending - read it and wept for the money spent.
d8th - One to Savor
Took my time with one because I didn’t want to miss a thing. Characters and settings both developed with exquisite care. Wish it came with a study guide. Wonderful book.
Appropriate Abby - Adored Lincoln Highway
Another genuine read overflowing with raw authenticity and pure honesty. Absolutely adored previous 2 novels and Lincoln Highway did not disappoint. Gratefully awaiting the next engaging Amor read with thanks.
ck0102030405 - Sooo good!
Best book I’ve read in a long time!! Love it!
Breaggeb - Beautiful
Towles writes humans the way I want them to be. The way I want them to think and feel.
suhollan - A unique yarn
A wonderfully suspenseful “escapade” full of life lessons and lovable characters. Amor Towles delivers again.

progers71 - Amazing Characters as Towles Does
There is not an equivalent to the Count from Mr Towles last book. However the characters and the story are very compelling and wonderful. Strongly recommend.
Norma&Zoey - Bravo!
Another great book by Mr Towles
Karmikarmimi - Book of the year
Engaging and masterful storytelling. Competes with A Gentleman in Moscow for favourite book read in the last decade.
