REVIEW OF CONDITIONS: Delves into the Fragility of the Human Spirit

Conditions Book by Christoph Fischer
This is the kind of book that one reads in two or three sittings at most, it flows with ease and as a reader I wanted to hold the hand of the characters, help them and see what happened.
The choice of title is very clever as the book deals with Charles and his Illness or Condition. The author is very clever and uses in his storyline every form of condition except for weather conditions, anyone could imagine.
I had fun looking up synonyms of the word because I really enjoyed how the title of the book could be applied to so much in the storyline, here are a few so I don’t ruin the story for would be readers.
Circumstances; those conditions are used in exploring each character and the circumstances of their life, how they became who they are, this is done with clever descriptions, actions and the help of a psychic character.
Situations; the author explores through setting and environment a wide variety of situations, by giving the protagonist Charles an array of very unique and disconnected friends, all of whom are linked simply by their relationship to Charles.
Stipulations; the conditions in a will or contract through the storyline affect the relationship between different characters.
I found the writing captivating as Christoph Fischer gave a storyline with stormy relationships, exploring the fragility of the human spirit from such different angles by giving the characters their own set of shortcomings.
Every character in their own way tugged at my heartstrings, I really enjoyed this read. And I wish I had more than FIVE STARS TO GIVE!PhotoFunia-1406e95f

Conditions

When Charles and Tony’s mother dies the estranged brothers must struggle to pick up the pieces, particularly so given that one of them is mentally challenged and the other bitter about his place within the family. The conflict is drawn out over materialistic issues, but there are other underlying problems which go to the heart of what it means to be part of a family which, in one way or another. has cast one aside. Prejudice, misconceptions and the human condition in all forms feature in this contemporary drama revolving around a group of people who attend the subsequent funeral at the British South Coast. Meet flamboyant gardener Charles, loner Simon, selfless psychic Elaine, narcissistic body-builder Edgar, Martha and her version of unconditional love and many others as they try to deal with the event and its aftermath.
