A little disappointing
What did you like best about The Rebels? What did you like least?
A riveting piece of historical literature.
A story about a useless, good for nothing drunk, which drove me nuts.
Anne's story shocked me and made me sad.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Talk more about the historical significance of the war and how it affected society as a whole instead of just a few people.
Have you listened to any of Marc Vietor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
The same high performance as the last time I listened to him.
Do you think The Rebels needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No I think author struggled with the material as it is.
Any additional comments?
About 65% of the book focussed on the daily nightmare that was life of a common drunk and how he tortured himself and the people around him, I got really fed up with the whole thing- I hope the next book is better.

Regret and hopelessness
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The series is largely dark, with disappointment, failure and character weaknesses. The series is not uplifting and the many that enter the timeline breed hopelessness. The worst tragedies possible happen on a frequent scale that leaves one frustrated. When the listener just starts so admire a character, the story line trashes them into bleak shamefulness.
Has The Rebels turned you off from other books in this genre?
The historical context is good.
What about Marc Vietor’s performance did you like?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
