First allow me the indulgence of repeating what I said in one of my status updates on this book as it still holds true and sums up uite well how much I enjoyed the book Okay this book is AWESOME It s got a kickin pace cool ideas and likable characters even the bad guys it s a whole bucket o funIf that tells you what you need to know you can stop here Now I ll say what I really want to say which has very little and very much to do with the book at hand I finished Bitter Seeds in July 2010 and originally posted a placeholder review with a promise to write a real review when I got back from a ten day vacation Then I didn t write anything and Ceridwen got pissed so here I am posting a real review But I want you and I mean you Ceridwen to understand what happenedI finished this book in the car on the road from Sacramento to San Diego It s a good 8 9 hour drive with the kids in the minivan At the time we lived in Sacramento and were planning a move to San Diego in late 2010 or early 2011 and we were driving to San Diego to look for a place to live to tour our kids new school meet up with some old friends and hit Disneyland on the way back Hence the placeholder review Then life happened In a big wayWe went to San Diego and realized we belong there now San Diego is here I have a nervous system disorder that literally feels better in sunshine which is abundant in San Diego my kids fell in love with the Catholic school in which we wanted to enroll them my old friends in San Diego needed some people they could lean on Plus there s the fact that I got my undergrad degree at San Diego State in the mid 90 s and left my heart there err here Most importantly however was the fact that my wife and I needed a fresh start in a new place you cannot discount the importance of geography the much than symbolic effect of leaving behind the place that contains the bad memories of making new memories somewhere else where you must rely upon one another and nobody elseWe realized that our kids would be better off starting in their new school at the beginning of the school year rather than coming in mid year when they would be the new kids when all the little cliues and alliances had already formed We realized also that we had nothing to lose that as a couple and as a family we needed this move because we had to drop our baggage and run far away and the only thing stopping us was us So I told my employer I was moving and I d really like to work for them from our San Diego office and my wife told her teacher credentialing program she d like to finish her courses by correspondence My employer and my wife s school both said yes The key to getting such people to say yes to such things is convincing them that you re going to move regardless of what they say It was easy because we weren t bluffingOn or about July 10th we decided to move to San Diego ASAP and on August 16th we moved It was the second best decision we ve ever made as a couple the best being our decision to stay married in the first placeGiant tangent right Right So beyond explaining why it took me so long to write a review what does any of this have to do with Bitter Seeds In one sense nothing that s merely what was going on in my life when I read the book In another sense everything because that s what was going on in my life when I read the bookSee here s the thing And I know you know this but I m going to make it explicit just in case how you feel about a book how the book touches you what you take home from a book all that stuff it s all tied to the context of your life at the time you re reading We re each touched in different manners and degrees not merely because we each have a uniue set of neurons that fire differently but because we re coming to the party from different places in our lives My feelings about Doomsday Book for example were heavily influenced by what was happening in my life at the timeLooking back on reading Bitter Seeds some six or seven months ago and having read several books since then I have trouble recalling many specific plot points and can t recall being touched or surprised or made to think in any particular way What I can remember is having a whole heckuv a lot of fun reading the book and what I was doing at the timeMy wife and I were involved in our own private war one which we first thought was against one another but which we realized about the time I was reading Bitter Seeds was us against not us You see the seeds of victory against one another would have grown into bitter fruit had one of us won that war in the long run it would have been a defeat for both of us and for our childrenFor me then Bitter Seeds is as much about fighting the wrong war as it is about fighting Dubya Dubya Two Bitter Seeds is about going all out for victory against one enemy while failing to recognize another Bitter Seeds is about taking shortcuts that produce a victory that tastes as bitter as defeatThank God Fate Providence thank Whatever for my wife and I realizing these things before it became too late We realized the true war we were fighting was the war against failure and separation We dug up our bitter seeds and threw them out We took no shortcuts to victory in the wrong war Instead we rediscovered our love for one another our own inner courage as individuals and as a couple and our common faith and relied on those values to see us throughThink of the things that we in 21st Century Western Civilization use as shortcuts past love and courage and faith Money is the obvious example not to mention the stuff that money can buy We sometimes ironically unfortunately use relationships as a shortcut this may not be obvious but think about it think about real friendships vs the appearance of friendships true human connection vs merely going through the motionsIn Bitter Seeds both sides tried shortcuts to victory superhuman creations and supernatural visitors They lost their values Okay I know that sounds odd saying the Nazis lost their values But they did The Germanic people were supposed to be the Master Race not merely the seeds of an artificially enhanced master race And well if it s not clear to you how the Brits lost their values then I don t know how to explain itI suppose I better address some of the foreseeable objectionsI m not saying the US in the actual WWII stuck to its values terribly well we had our dark side too but we ultimately weren t held hostage by our fire bombings of civilian populations the way the Brits were held hostage by their aliens in Bitter SeedsI m also not trying to say that you must have my notions of love courage and faith in order to successfully fight your own private wars You have your own values don t shortcut themNor am I saying that if you act in accordance with your own values everything will turn out fine for you None of us can predict the future None of us can entirely avoid forces outside our control Still you will have your values and as stronger sense of who you are to fall back on Is that small consolation if your loved one is killed in a car wreck Yes abso fucking lutely it is But if that happens I have no answers for youFinally I know you re thinking that dumping all our problems in Sacramento and moving to one of the most beautiful cities in North America sure sounds like a shortcut to you All I can say is that for you maybe that would be a shortcut for us it was not It was much about leaving our shortcuts behind than where we ended up We went to San Diego because we were already pretty familiar with the area had some friends there and my employer has an office there err here I m still getting used to it My family and I moved to a gorgeous new city but we didn t shortcut the important things our love for one another our inner courage as a couple and our faith in a spiritual calling Whatever else might still go wrong with our journey together we have those things to fall back on because we didn t shortcut themSo all I m saying is that taking a shortcut around your own innate human ualities will ultimately become a longer road as you will have to fight to recover the world you have lost the values you have lost and if you re unlucky the people you have lost The Matchmakers Apprentice us parts of this story but Bitter Seeds shows The Saint Peters Plot us how GMOs are destroying an ancient way of life along with the hopes and dreams of generations of farmers Bitter Seeds by Ian Tregillis | LibraryThing The bitter seeds from the title could entirely be planted by those pluc.
