    1 thought on “Conquest”

    1. The tagline for Conquest, Vik Rubenfeld’s new novel, says it all: “The hardship and triumph of following your heart.” Told in a strong first-person voice by bass player Reid Taylor, Conquest is the story of a band’s rise from its stalled and humble beginnings to fame as live performers and recording artists. When the story opens, Reid’s girlfriend has just dumped him, and he tries to combat his anguish by going to an audition for a new band. By the end of the auditions, Reid is the new [...]

    2. ’ve thought in the past about how cool it would be to be in a rock band. Imagine being young in a group like The Beatles where you don’t just wake up to fame and adoration but your every song is writing another chapter in the glorious history of music. Vik Rubenfeld’s Conquest tells the story of four young guys who form a band and find themselves hitting the big time, but with so many pressures for rock groups can they stay together and remain successful?The novel is told from the perspect [...]

    3. Conquest is the story of a band. It's also about love. Reid Taylor plays bass and tells the story. When he meets Kristy, he knows she's "the one." Barry is the role model leader and main guitarist. When he meets Risa, they think they might be soul mates. Clay is the drummer, who lives with his high school sweetheart. They might not belong together, and can't take care of each other. Link is the singer, who never commits to one girl, and never wants to be married, settle down, or have kids. They [...]

    4. Originally posted on Nov 26 2012 at Butterfly-o-Meter Books:I'm not a memoir passionate, that's the first thing I'll tell you. There was one memoir-like book I was ever tempted to read, and that was Steven Job's, but I never got around to actually reading one either. I've read some memoirs that I connected with, but not many. Like maybe two.The make or break for me is character, I'm either going to connect with the main in the first five lines of the book or not at all. I've always been a 'first [...]

    5. Reviewed on Alexa Loves Books.The novel was interesting, though it had a semi-unreliable narrator in Reid. Because everything was told solely from his point of view, we only see things as he saw them or as defined by his relationship with the other characters. Reid certainly had strong opinions and an interesting thought process though.I liked reading about the life of a band - how things started, what dynamics might exist between the members, and what happened on tour. I feel like it would have [...]

    6. A bands rise and fall. Story told by bass player Reid. Reid leaves girlfriend behind as he goes with a band he joins. Guitarist Barry is the songwriter. Falls in love with Risa. Takes her on the road with the group. Clay is the drummer. I f there is to be trouble it would be with him, he is not to be trusted. Link is the vocalist. He has no ties to anyone or thing, and wants it to stay that way. Along the way up they make a record and they rise to fame and fortune. With this mix of individuals t [...]

    7. Conquest. If you only read one novel in a year, read Conquest, and read it now. Why?Conquest on the surface is a simple rock-n-roll band story, but, fact of the matter is Vik Rubenfeld has added character and emotional depth (aka insight) to a simple "rock-n-roll makes it band" story.I enjoy reading what is being said and what is not being said. I enjoy a good simple read, especially a story with depth. What pleasantly surprised me is Vik Rubenfeld accomplished depth, character, plot, and most o [...]

    8. An interesting view from the eyes of a bass player who has just joined a band and all the steps leading up to a tour, album(can I still say that)release and first taste of success. I really liked the character Reid. He reminded me of many musicians that I have known in my lifetime all rolled into one. Those early struggling artist yearsI know so well. I was able to relate but for a reader who has not gone down this particular path it is an honest insight. The story has a steady rhythm without a [...]

    9. The descriptions are very good and is something worth say. However, there was something, I'm not entirely sure why I simply stayed out of the story. The male characters stand out, have the force and that motivated me to keep reading. The ending was not what I expected yet I liked the story.

    10. This was not my favorite but it was enticing. I lived in the 80's with the sex drugs and rock and roll. It was interesting to review another side of this life style.
