The bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow and Rules of Civility and master of absorbing, sophisticated fiction returns with a stylish and propulsive novel set in 1950s America

In June, 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. His mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett's intention is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and head to California where they can start their lives anew. But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have hidden themselves in the trunk of the warden's car. Together, they have hatched an altogether different plan for Emmett's future, one that will take them all on a fateful journey in the opposite direction—to the City of New York.

Spanning just ten days and told from multiple points of view, Towles's third novel will satisfy fans of his multi-layered literary styling while providing them an array of new and richly imagined settings, characters, and themes.

    Took a flyer on this one and was rewarded with a great read. Good character development both the good and bad ones, wonderful story about second chances. I will go back now and check out his other books. Mr Towles is an excellent writer.

  • Shirley A.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the story and narration.

  • Carla K.

    I’ve been a listener to audiobooks for 4 years and I’ve listened to some great books but this one!! It hit so many emotions for me. Absolutely my favorite and brought me to make my first remark on here an absolute winner this tale.

  • Rebecca S.

    It's been a while since a book hooked me so completely. I couldn't wait to find excuses to put in my headphones and enjoy the tale for while. Beautifully written and artfully narrated!

  • Alan R.

    i thought it was a great story. very well narrated, I enjoyed the listen.

    Fun with light humor, a bit understated and subtle but as a whole it possesses plenty of depth and profundity. A relatively short novel, worthwhile for sure!

  • Anonymous

    Great book! Intriguing, compelling, heart felt story line. Loved each of the characters! Narrators were great vocal artists. Read listen well worth it.

  • Victoria G.

    The narration was excellent. The plot was entertaining with well-developed characters.

  • Kathy A.

    Sometimes I would get lost and wonder what happened but it was just because they kept switching characters. I enjoyed the book, kept me interested in what was going to happen next, and some statements were very thought provocative

  • Kenneth D.

    Totally different from A Gentleman from Moscow; however, it was just as delightful! A book with seven different “First Person” perspectives enabled the listener to detect how different charters perceived the same experiences so remarkably different. Towels sentence structure and, descriptions and writing in general was a delight to listen to. All of the narrators were FABULOUS! Obviously, I really enjoyed the book!

  • Wanda H.

    Very enjoyable book. The story develops somewhat slowly for my taste but the descriptions and characters are very well described. The author makes them all come to life. Now I would like another book to get the main characters to their originally planned destination. And that ending!!!!!!! I didn't see that coming.

    Amor Towles The Lincoln Highway once again it’s a series of intriguing characters that weave together making it surprising yet somewhat realistic story there’s time to laugh there’s time to cry a time to fbe amazed I love it

  • Bianca1976

    I seem to really enjoy Amor Towles' books a lot. This one not excluded. I really enjoyed this and the narration was great!

  • Brian O.

    Towles knocks it out if the park again. His mastery of story telling and weaving in all the nuanced layers of the story is 2nd to none. Additionally the voice actors lend an amazing realism to the story so much so that you actually feel like your right there in the middle of the action!! Well worth the listen!!!!

  • Eileen W.

    Loved, loved, loved this novel! Great character development-great characters! Could not stop listening. The ending makes me hopeful for a sequel!

  • Renae Rountree

    I am convinced this book will become one of the classics that every one must read in school. The writing style is unique and magnificent. The story provokes every emotion, and the main narrator is the best I’ve heard.

  • Jeanette F.

    I loved the characters

  • Steve M.

    Wonderful book, nice to enjoy a story without any vices for a change. Dullsville is a nice change now and then. Thx

  • Patricia G.

    I really got into the characters, kept my attention all the way through.
