This book is a follow up to Conditions, it takes place a year after the initial book and gives us a few answers that were left. I love that the author took so many issues that truly do fall under mental health, addiction, abuse, depression and brought them to life with characters everyone can relate to. there's no one alive that can't relate to at least one character and the issues that they are currently going through. the story is very heartfelt and really brings to light issues people do not want to talk about. I was shocked at how the book ended, it ended rather quickly. I have grown quite attached these characters and hope there is another installment.

Conditioned is a character-driven, emotionally charged, and well thought-out novel. The story focuses on several flawed people, defense mechanisms, and destructive behaviors, such as alcohol abuse, infidelity, narcissism, abusiveness, manipulation, co-dependency, lying, and low self-esteem. The book also covers dysfunctional relationships and mental illness. Conditioned, captured my attention and emotions as the author brought me into the intimate lives of his characters. One of my favorite characters was Martha. My heart went out to her as I witnessed her continually give of herself, to her narcissistic alcoholic husband, only to have him abuse her, and her family and friends shun her. Martha was so obsessed with being the perfect wife that she lost herself in the process. The author does a superb job describing human behavior patterns and imperfections. He places the reader into the mind of several of his characters, one of them being Martha, where he clearly describes Martha’s denial and co-dependent thought process.

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.

Conditioned is the second book in the series about Charles and Tony, family and relationships. In the first book these two characters unite for their mother’s funeral, but in this one we begin on a happier note with the Catherine and Robert’s impending wedding. Having read Mr Fischer’s other books, I had high expectations. He is a master of highly descriptive passages, which delve into complex character situations and relationships and, in one word this author is literary authenticity in its purest form.

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’.

‘Conditioned’ is a fascinating psychological study of a group of friends who are anticipating a seemingly happy occasion, the wedding of Catherine and Robert, but for many of them, their lives seem to descend into personal hell.

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.

A very enjoyable read with deep undertones. The bunch of friends from Conditions is back. A lot has changed for bipolar Charles since his mother’s funeral. We experience his medically conditioned state mostly through the eyes of his friends, all of whom come together at a wedding this time. It’s a fascinating play with perspective, which is all the more rewarding when we get one chapter seen from his point of view.

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.
