5.0 von 5 Sternen Ripples and Repercussions, 25. Juni 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Time to Let Go (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
Simply put, this beautiful book should be read by everyone who has so far and yearns to go back.

Bitter-sweet in tone, we follow Hanna as she returns home to assess her life following a crisis at work.

But this is no longer the home of her childhood. Her parents are not the immortal gods of her childish memory, and she is forced to confront the brutal reality that frailty and infirmity comes with age.

Her mother’s Alzheimer’s is wonderfully described and beautifully treated, and her father is grieving for the loss of his wife who is not yet dead. A man of his time, his obtuseness is a stark contrast to Hanna’s progressive and more left leaning values, and his daughter is left to struggle to do what is right by her mother, and honoring her father.

Whilst this is a fantastic tale of relationships, the real joy is in the subtext; through Hanna we are shown what our modern living costs us – how city life moulds us into people we do not necessarily want to be, and divides us from both ourselves, our friends, and the land.

This is a tender story of love and loss, but also of hope that, if we really want to, we can change who we are to become something altogether better.

A wonderful read and an enduring tale.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A moving story., 2. Juli 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Time to Let Go (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I loved Time to Let Go by Christoph Fischer! As we witness a family in crisis and the changes that occur when Hanna has to deal with problems centering around work that become magnified when having to cope with a mother (Biddy) caught in the cruel grips of Alzheimer’s. A slice of life that feels all too real. As a reader gets to know Biddy in the good moments and Hanna’s father (Walter), we become part of the family. The dialogue is often bittersweet, at once heartbreaking and humorous. There is a scene where Biddy reads from the paper and then tries to understand who the Taliban are that reminded me of my own grandmother – touching and hard, and yet I smiled. The author has done a great job making it realistic. He’s handled this difficult, and all too common, issue superbly, weaving it into an entertaining and important story. Simply wonderful. Highly recommended – 5 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Winner From Fischer, 14. Juli 2014
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Time to Let Go (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
Another amazing read from one of my favorite contemporary authors Christoph Fischer. Based on the reviews, the subject matter of this novel clearly speaks to people who have had the misfortune to experience AD but it is also a moving read for anyone who is a son or daughter. Fischer's characters and stories have a universality that makes them easy to relate to. This is probably his strongest piece yet. The writing has become quite spare, with no words wasted. The mood is often somber but everything always feels authentic. 'Time To Let Go' is an intense, well executed exploration of family dynamics under pressure. Highly recommended.
