Love this series!
Classy 1930's NYC - great characters and story.
Descriptions of New York City - in its "black and whiteness" - offering insights - Christina's voicing of the characters (especially female characters) was excellent.
Katie's friendship with Wallace - and the day-days they spent together at the Hunt Club and Shooting and etc., clearly the "melding (?)" of two very different worlds.
No basis for an evaluation
The death of Wallace - and her realization that her circle of "friends" in New York City was rapidly decreasing - which was/is the "way of life".
You can see that Amor Towles is "learning" how to create a great character - I've read his "A Gentlemen in Moscow" - and I think Katie is a very very early version of the Count. Great narrative and great human insights in both novels.
