Poorly written and incomplete summary
This reads like a poor translation from a foreign language. I read Gentleman in Moscow as an audiobook and wanted this summarised version to recap the events of the story. It is poorly written, very, very brief and leaves out many important steps in the story. I’d like a refund.
