Embers . . . Casanova in Bolzano . . . and now The Rebels: the third of the rediscovered novels of the great Hungarian writer—the jolting story of a troubled group of young men on the cusp of life, and death, in World War I.It is the summer of 1918. As graduation approaches at a boys’ academy in provincial Hungary, the senior class finds itself in a ghost town. Fathers, uncles, older brothers—all have been called to the front. Surrounded only by old men, mothers, aunts, and sisters, the boys are keenly aware that graduation will propel them into the army and imminently toward likely death on the battlefield. In the final weeks of the academic year, four of these young men—and the war-wounded older brother of one of them—are drawn tightly together, sensing in one another a mutual alienation from their bleak, death-mapped future. Soon they are acting out their frustrations and fears in a series of increasingly serious, strange, and subversive games and petty thefts. But when they attract the attention of a stranger in town—an actor with a traveling theater company—their games, and their lives, begin to move in a direction they could not have predicted and cannot control.… (mer)

Well written, well translated novel about a group of Hungarian boys about the graduate from high school and be sent off to war. The boys are at an awkward stage of their lives, mostly boys, but occassionally forced to act like adults. I found this book to be a cross between Donna Tartt's The Secret History, with a little bit of Catcher in the Rye. If you liked The Secret History, I think you would like this. I did not like either.

This was an enjoyably weird little book, which could have achieved the beautifully disturbing quality of Musil's Young Torless, but somehow didn't take things far enough or do it clearly enough. ( )

It's 1918 and a group of 18-year-old boys about to finish their schooling come to start a club where they bond through lying and petty thieving, and of course things come to an unpleasant end eventually. The book had its moments early on, but on the whole this one failed to engage me. ( )

This book wasnt to long which was the only good thing about it.
Bit of a boring confusing book about 4 youths growing up in Hungary and what they get up to.
They steal money, get drunk, hang about with an older actor. He leaves them. They are in fear of their fathers. Sorry but I found this book boring and didnt really see the point of it. ( )

I was referred to this author by George Jonas who stated that an author should make you not want to turn the page the writing is so rich, and gave this author as an example. And I have to agree with him. This richness of this author's prose is wonderful, even if it is translation. ( )
