reviews of The Rebels

The Complete Review: "overheated, but effective period-piece."

Los Angeles Times: "Márai paints his characters so convincingly that, scene after scene, the story remains tense with suspense."

New York Sun: "The novel is marked by passages of bleak elegiac grandeur."

The New Yorker: "Back in 1930, though, he was still writing books that were merely very, very good."

Sorry--you have to paste that in your browser. There is also a review as well.

I also mentioned it on my own blog, if you want to check that out.
