A trilogy of dystopian novels based on the author’s own experience of commanding a top secret government unit.

What if all brain disorders were treatable? No one would lament the passing of dementia or autism, but what if the twisted mind of a sex-offender or murderer could be cured too? Or how about a terrorist or maybe a political extremist? What if we could all be ‘corrected’?

So, Professor Savage has been unmasked as the monster Alex Salib always knew he was. But what was their agreement and why is she still determined to see it through? The war on terror appears to be back on track but why does President Kalten seem hell bent on ramping it up – are the Americans seriously intent on starting World War Three?

And what of the treatment itself? Despite Savage’s arrest, the ‘corrections’ go on but to what end? The laws of unintended consequences are about to cause a seismic shift in the very nature of our existence. But then our new masters know that and won’t let it happen until we’re ready…

…Ready to accept the unacceptable.

This ebook is the third in the Condition trilogy by Alec Birri. The first two tiles, A Medical Miracle and The Curing Begins, are also available to purchase from all major ebook retailers.

Although I found the first book in the series really intriguing, I started to lose interest with the second, finding it too confusing at times. With this one I was unable to relate at all. I think the fact that the second didn’t move me should have been a signal about the third. It grew more confusing, I couldn’t connect to the characters, and I didn’t care about anything. Birri had finally lost me.

I think the story had great potential but Birri’s storytelling skills need some more polishing. The characters didn’t feel real enough, and the descriptions could have used some more work.

Jonathan Keeble’s narration was very good though, setting the right atmosphere for the story and delivering great characters interpretations.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Alec Birri. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
