Christoph is amazing! I am glad he has decided to do another historical novel! In this book, we meet Zacharias, a young man from a wealthy family, and his best friend, Angsar who is the son of a pig farmer. The story takes place between Denmark and Finland at the time of WWII. These two unlikely friends both want the best for their people. Zacharias believes everyone is equal and is quickly enchanted with the ideals of communism by his charismatic teacher Beck. Angsar wants the monarchy to continue and bring peace. Zacharias goes to Finland to help the Red Guard fight to create a communistic state in Finland. The White Guard wants to return to the monarchy and has asked Germany to aid them to defeat the Red Guard. We meet Raisa, a Finnish nurse, when Zacharias is injured during the Red Guard's defeat. She just wants to live in peace and have a home. She tries to seduce Zacharias and he tells her that he will never love her. Angsar comes to Finland because of a scandal he is involved in after he joins the army in Denmark. He finds Raisa and moves in while Zacharias has returned home to Denmark to find his way.

The story unfolds as each man faces the truth of their convictions and realizes there is no right answer. Amazing detail about the times and the pitfalls of blindly following any ideology.

Great book!

In Search of a Revolution is another great work of historical fiction by the brilliant, Christoph Fischer. In this book he expertly weaves thirty years of history and conflict into a rich, beautiful tapestry that educates and inspires. In my opinion, it could easily give War and Peace a run for its money. As always, Mr. Fischer developed memorable characters whose fictional lives leave a permanent imprint upon the hearts of readers. Zacharias, Ansgar and Raisa will forever be a part of my world. Their experiences and struggles, victories and losses, joys and sorrows have become my own. This story was told with such depth and poignancy that having read it, I will never be the same again.

I came to love history late in life, owing in large part to a failure of my social studies teachers to bring the past to life for me. Because they couldn’t, I figured bygone eras were pretty much dead to me. That combined with the fact that I’m more of a forward leaning guy than a backward leaning guy, might also explain why I write so much science fiction. But with the advent of TV period dramas like The Tudors, The Borgias, and lately, the Starz channel’s Outlander, I’ve decided I can’t get enough of historical fiction, even if history in its nonfiction context is still a bit of an uphill climb. Admittedly, these shows all have a cheesy, night-time soap opera quality to them, despite the overall quality of the production values. But whether it’s the lush photography, the engaging costumes, the incredible set work… the point is by visualizing history so well, and making it something other than dry facts and figures, these TV series are able to get me to connect with history like never before.

But what about novels? Historical fiction, after all, takes many guises. To my surprise, provided the storytelling is superb, here too I’ve been able to discover brave new worlds, or more appropriately, rediscover brave old worlds. And that takes us to a discussion of In Search of a Revolution. I was blown away by this author’s last book, The Healer, and so figured I wouldn’t be going too far out on a limb to presume his storytelling prowess followed him wherever he went. And that included genres I rarely read. I gambled well with my time, because this book is every bit as remarkable as the last.

One of my favorite things about this writer is the subtle, nuanced, layered way in which he writes, that leaves the book open to multiple interpretations.

Historical fiction with some relatively unknown pre and WWII history of the northern European countries. Story and plot is thin and contrived. Pairing two women and two men with differing views could have been an interesting formula for reading. But, the pair opposing Stalins communism in Russia and favoring Hitler's Nazi socializism with a pair of opposite views got worn out quickly. The author also paired the two highly sexed females with two men who have little to no interest in sex. Put them all in one tiny apartment, even the same bed, and emphasize the lack of sex confused the entire already weak story line. I'm surprised I read 3/4 of the book before giving up. A snoozer for sure.

This is a fantastic piece of historical fiction, definitely one of my favorite periods in world history and certainly one of my favorite themes.

Two young men believe that old refrain, "You must stand for something, or you will fall for anything." These two friends come from radically differing backgrounds and those backgrounds help to form their varying world views. The story follows their attempts to forge a new future and it follows their competing love interest. This is a study in human nature at its best and it's worse.

Christoph Fischer has delved back into his impressive knack for historical fiction with In Search of a Revolution. This time, he tackles WWII from Finland- an area not usually included in WWII fiction.

We meet Zacharias, a wealthy man who just happens to be friends with Angsar, the son of a pig farmer. The two friends are at odds with each other because of their different beliefs. Angsar is in favor of the monarchy. Zacharias is interested in communusm and its promise to make everyone equal.

Both friends end up fighting in Finland, but things are never very easy.

Fischer has such a way of weaving a tale. Each character screams of realism as you celebrate both their joys and sorrows.
