"The Thirty Years War continues to ravage 17th century Europe, but a new force is gathering power and influence: The Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the town of Grantville, West Virginia. Grantville was hurled from the year 2000 to 1632 by a sort of cosmic joke or accident and has become, under the leadership of Mike Stearns, the embodiment of American Freedom: Liberty, with a sword in her hand." "In Franconia, whose peasants have revolted several times, even before the arrival of the West Virginians, the living example of American freedom and justice has inspired the rise of an independent revolutionary movement, flying the banner of the head of a ram. The West Virginians fully approve of liberating the peasants from the nobility, but they are also aware of how revolutionary movements can lead to bloodbaths. And avoiding that deadly possibility will require all of their future knowledge plus all their plain old American horse-trading diplomacy."--BOOK JACKET.… (mere)

As Eric Flint says himself, this is an odd novel. It's a novel with short stories included. The book starts in 1631, shortly after the ring of fire and goes all the way to 1634. There you get to follow various people in the Grantville vicinity when they try to build a new life. A new life as auditor, ballet instructor or sheep farmer.

It is interesting in a different way than the books that try to describe the big picture and I like the book, but I missed a few thread endings. Maybe they are in a different book, but as this feel like an odd bird I am not so sure about that. ( )

I liked The Ram Rebellion on its own merits - I'm not at all sure I believe 17th-century European peasants would have successfully overthrown the aristocracy had they only had good printing presses, but whatever - but it's primarily interesting because of its structure. It's basically a set of short stories written around a theme - the aforementioned peasant rebellion - with framing sections interspersed to give it something like a narrative flow. The individual sections are a trifle uneven, but it works surprisingly well. ( )

Here is my review. This book is better described as an anthology than a novel. ( )

A collection of short stories from various contributers which hang together to create a novel. The overall writing was not as engaging as others in the Assiti Shards series because of the disjoint nature of the presentation. We see vignettes of a 'Committee' tasked to bring the Franconian--a pre-German area where villagdes and areas are under a mishmash of Imperial Knights, landlords, and other variations of ownership and land useage rights--together under the USE poilitical body. The Committee is a group of bureaucrats trying to introduce a concept ot individual rights which recognized both the peasant and the noblility, including the minor land barons. The tension of the main plot lines is based on the peasant wars of the era and area where the common farmers, villages, and minor craftsmen were on the verge of rebellion. The problem for the Grantsville uptimers was to make the revolution coming a relatively peaceful transition of working accepting govemment of the people by the people under the USE rather than another power grab by the winners in the coming conflict.
