One common thread I noticed in this book was that as difficult as pain is to endure, it is almost always the needed catalyst for growth and change to occur.
If you are looking for a book to hijack your emotions and pull your heartstrings, then Conditioned is the book for you.
In all his books he manages to force the reader to think about the human condition and how we all behave with one another in difficult and sometimes unacceptable circumstances. In this particular story, he further demonstrates his ability to interact with his characters’ minds, as they cope, struggle, and overcome bias, judgemental, and intolerant persons – but not in a glossy or fairytale fashion – no, there are many facets to Mr
Fischer’s writing and storytelling abilities, and he displays these with realistic and complex situations.
I found this second book every bit as compelling as the first. The pace was slightly livelier, and the characters’ development from the first book, Conditions, made them even more believable and ‘human’.
In each chapter we move into the head of a different character and gain an appreciation of their interpretation of the upcoming event. The story becomes progressively more complex and interwoven as each character’s back stories, interactions and thoughts are developed until it’s a living, throbbing web of intrigue. Christoph Fischer’s talent lies in the way he makes you see a character but then shifts the perspective to reveal other facets of their personality and background, making you question your previous thoughts, beliefs and judgements about them. His characters are well developed with an array of interesting flaws. He explores many human conditions and failings such as addiction, domestic violence, judgement, intolerance and depression. I especially liked the way the author examines his characters’ assumptions—where people develop ideas in their heads about the motivations of others for their behaviour when the reality can be totally different.
This was a fascinating and thought provoking read.
The colorful cast all struggle with their own dramas: A long forgotten heartache is coming back into Simon’s professional life, Martha’s relationship with Clive is still rocky, Catherine has a case of cold feet…
Fischer’s strength is writing realistic characters with issues we all can relate to and reflections that make you think. As in life – some characters get redemption and denouement, others will keep on struggling. A juicy slice of life in all its flavors. Moving, thought-provoking and entertaining.
