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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
