A look into what's to come.

In this we meet Dee, the main character for The Calm Act series. This is a prequel to the series and gives us a glimpse of what's to come. Dee has been forbidden by her employer to attend any of the rallys happening. Interested to see exactly what is happening, she attends one anyway.

This was a quick look into what's to come. It gives us a taster of the world and characters in the Calm Act series and is intriguing enough to make me want to read book 1 and see what happens next. It's a quick and easy read!

The author narrates this and I will say that she is clear and easy to listen to, but she didn't really perform this, she just reads it. Her tones are very similar for each character and was often hard to follow who was talking.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Excellent prequel to Calm Act series

If you could sum up Civilly Disobedient in three words, what would they be?

very well done

What did you like best about this story?

As a big fan of the entire Calm Act series, this was great fun. It's a perfect prequel because it's a snapshot of the protagonist and her world just as everything was about to change; you can see the "genesis" of later events and themes. It would probably hold up very well as a standalone novella as well.

Have you listened to any of Ginger Booth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, and I was a little nervous since I don't usually enjoy authors reading their own books. But this is a fine, intelligent, understated reading. Booth has a lovely voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, I just thoroughly enjoyed it in the context of the series, which I'd already read.
