    It's been a while since I've been so infuriated by a read I am pissed this morning after finishing Bitter Seeds because the book is so fucking uneven The highs are very high but the lows tend to be abyssal I considered giving it five stars at a couple of points vowed to give it one star often and finally decided that I had better split the difference Here goes for the Highs and LowsHigh #1 The conceit of Nazi engineered superheroe

    If you have to give the Nazis credit for anything note you do not have to give the Nazis credit for anything it’s their thoroughness In addition to fighting a massive war on several fronts and systematically eliminating large swaths of the population in Europe they also managed to conduct enough bizarre experiments to launch a thousand works of speculative fiction that basically boil down to wow those guys were totally fucking crazyIt

Ky English chaps I particularly liked the mix of uasi Cthulhu Eidolons as a substitute for demonic contracts and the traditional stick those wires in the brain awakenings I mention these things first because I found them fun but than that I really enjoyed the story and the characterizations I kept wanting to Bitter Seeds Milkweed Triptych couk Bitter Seeds shines in its characters about which we get to care a lot and in the style which is just superb the one novel of I would recommend to anyone who believes that speculative fiction cannot compete with literary novels FANTASY BOOK CRITIC A damned entertaining novel If Bitter Seeds is any indication of what's to come then Tregillis will have a fertile writing career How to Plant Bitter Melon with Pictures wikiHow Purchase bitter melon seeds from your local nursery or online Plant to seeds in the same hole ⁄ in mm deep in the soil Plant the bitter melon directly outside Poke a hole in the soil with your finger and drop the seeds inside Cover the hole with topsoil If you plan to plant than bitter melon plant space the holes to inches to cm apart direct. I don t always get behind alternate histories There s something in me that screams for the truth These are definitely not the truth look in a history bookYeah that s from the guy who reads 99 fantasy books out of 100 Oh and one of my favorites is Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell though that s much magical and fairyland ish But once you change the past that just throws me off too much I don t know why Still haven t read a thing by Harry TurtledoveBut throw superheros into an alternate World War Two and for some reason that just clicked with meI had a great time with this book I guess it doesn t hurt that I lived in Germany for a while speak German and all that It did kill me during a part where the English speaker gets by speaking flawless German which is just close to impossible without speaking it as a child but otherwise I enjoyed this from start to finishI got this as a review copy on audio but publishers have this problem with not sending the seuels ever I know wo is me I have to buy a book but that explains why I haven t made it any further Got sidetracked with other books while waiting for the seuelKevin Pariseau did an excellent job on the narration did a fine German accent which is what really counted in this one 4 out of 5 Stars highly recommended

I m sad to tell you that this book was not for me I m unabashedly fickle and self centered with my star ratings so I have to give this book only three stars when objectively it s probably a four star book Ian Tregillis is a GR author and friend of our beloved Ceridwen and Sock Puppet Sock Puppet even designed Mr Tregillis s beautiful website So what I m telling you is that this book is objectively awesome and you should read it even though it s not my personal bag of treats Also what beautiful cover art rightIf I were in a movie I would want to be the jargon talking tech guy You know that s why Morgan Freeman wanted to be in the new Batmans he gets to say things like Here it is the nomex survival suit for advanced infantry Kevlar bi weave reinforced joints and later Memory fabric dual layer polymers with variable alignment molecules Flexible ordinarily but put a current through it So badass And who even cares if it means anything This book is full of stuff like that It s page after page of things you d want to say if you were a sidekick in a movie And not just the dialogue either the descriptions are all pretty badass too even if I don t really get what some of them mean at first glance Here are a couple of examples Reinhardt strode across the munitions range while two technicians readied the bipod of an MG 34 machine rifle He cloaked himself in flames and motioned for them to beginReinhardt stood at attention head high and chin thrust out unfazed by the ammunition vaporizing against his chest The bullets disappeared as violet coruscations within a man shaped corona of blue fireAnd And so the ravens stayed and watchedTwined contrails traced sigils in the bright blue sky over the island The attackers swarmed around the lattice masts dotting the coast like honeybees drawn to sunflowers One by one the towers fell rendering the defenders blind It was as though their eyes had been plucked out in homage to some ancient mythThose are just examples that I randomly picked flipping through the book It would all be fun to read out loud This story is an alternate history of WWII describing the war through fantastical scientific magical events in England and Germany Unfortunately I think I missed a lot of the WWII references and manipulations because I don t know much detail about the actual war and its battles I think it would be completely valid to say that I can t properly appreciate this book because of that I only have two actual criticisms of the book and I hope they don t get into your head if you decide to read it Especially if sci fi and WWII are some of your raisons d etre you should definitely purchase this book at a local retailer regardless of what I have to say In general I d call it a grown up disillusioned take on the themes of A Wrinkle in Time and I mean that description as an unualified compliment But now for the criticisms First the tech specific sidekick speak was fun and creative and even beautiful at times but it added to this general sense I had that all of the characters were sidekicks and there was no real protagonist or antagonist in the story There might have been four anti heroes who were the protagonists but they all match up to some pretty stock sidekick characters so it s difficult for me to think of one as central or of them as a central group Those four characters were the loveable misanthrope Cassandra the henchman and the guy who says When I get out of this war imma go home and kiss my wife right before a bomb hits him They re good stock characters and the touches Tergillis put on them were all pretty sweet Like the misanthrope was also a wizard and Cassandra was and evil plotter but well respected Smart But the purpose those characters usually serve in a story is to foster a sense of foreboding or to be expendable Ultimately using these characters for me created a gloom over the entire story like the ubiuitous ravens circling over anticipated carrionFYI I googled misanthrope because I was suddenly not sure if that was what I meant and this amazing blog came up I thought you would want to knowSecond it is very likely that the sense of impending doom was purposeful but for me it made it so that when tragedy did occur in the story I felt so thoroughly warned that I had no emotional connection to the actual event Every tragedy or shock came with very clear and straightforward foreshadowing and rather than create suspense this only served to tell me not to get emotionally involved That might have been a very personal reaction to the story or it might have been a very conscious choice on the part of Tregillis but it makes me uneasy And that s not spoiling the story to say that I don t think because it was my reaction from first being introduced to the characters and doesn t necessarily reflect what actually happens to them I felt detachedOne last thing that makes me feel uncomfortable isn t a criticism but just something I have to ask about am I supposed to know who the appearingdisappearing dude is Why was he appearing and disappearing Not knowing this makes me feel like either I missed something vital to this entire story or the book was actually an episode of LOST and I m supposed to wait for the seuel I really hope the answer is behind door number oneSome books I bump up a star because of personal taste this is one I bumped down a star for that reason I feel like it s a problem that I referred to this book as sci fi and am going to do so again when really it s of a magical realismsteampunkalternative historywar memoir but it s easier that way I m bad at reading good sci fi and fantasy because I m really good at suspending disbelief but if you ever start to explain to me why I should suspend disbelief I automatically disbelieve you If you say to me God created the world or An explosion created the world I m there But if you try to prove to me why it s only logical that one or another happened because of molecules or gamma rays or other phlebotinum I not only don t believe you I ve started trying to lawyer you and I ve probably gotten distracted from what you re actually telling me That s not how you should read good sci fi or fantasy You should be happy that the author created reasons and systems for the fantastical elements It s a curse So read this book It s new and fresh and smart Don t get distracted by my problem with well explained phlebotinum because you d be missing out on some beautiful writing
