REVIEWS FOR THE NOVEL, "THE REBEL SON"

 

Thoroughly enjoyed the book. For fiction, there was lot of checkable facts and the story was a great combination of a love story steeped with action and adventure.

Having read some of Guy Quigley's former books, I decided to acquire a copy of his latest novel, “A Rebel Son” and I was not disappointed. It is a great love/adventure story that will appeal to both sexes. It spans continents and has more twists than a dangerous alpine road with descriptive passages of the African landscape that are breathtaking and transport you there. It is a compelling page turner so fellow readers get this one: you won’t be disappointed. And if it is ever made into a movie, I’ll be the first to queue for tickets.

I would recommend Guy’s book, “The Rebel Son,” to both men and women. It is not only a love story, which most women enjoy, but quite an adventure also. For those of us who will never experience the sites of Africa, this book transports you there. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and urge anyone to venture within its pages and see the beauty it has to offer. This book was written by my friend, Guy Quigley. Nice job, Guy! Please continue writing.

This was the first book that I’ve read by Guy Quigley. I truly wasn’t sure what to expect. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Guy has a great way with words and drawing you into story as if you were there.You could almost hear the cascading falls and feel the heat of Africa. I thoroughly enjoyed the love story, with its history and saga of a time we all remember. I couldn’t stop turning the pages to see how its twist and turns would end. I highly recommend this book to both sexes as it is filled with enough suspense and drama to hold you captive! I know this book would make a great Christmas gift! Thanks for such a wonderful read! Keep up the great work. Looking forward to your next book!

This is an action packed book in every sense of the word. To me, the best, most interesting passages take place in Africa; details flow, that intrigued me, making me want to read more. I wondered how anyone could casually walk through a field in Africa and not get eaten by a lion, or walk through a tunnel of vines knowing a poisonous snake was waiting to attack? Thrown in the midst of the the Bush War in Rhodesia, the hero, a Vietnam vet, once again finds himself the target of enemy fire. But this book is not just about war, it is about the triumph of love, spanning two African countries, two continents and two races. A great book, the dialogue is solid, and real. Read it. You’ll enjoy it.

I just finished the book The Rebel Son and wanted to express my delight in it. I have always had a fascination with Africa and was brought into the country with all its magnificence through this book. I enjoyed learning about the characters and the plot kept me interested page after page. I definitely think this book needs a sequel. I enjoyed it very much and would highly it recommend it.
