The Plastic Seed

Two schemes uncoil—and, very quickly, begin to unravel—on the same day in the Australian town of West Glassport…

Jean Hima isn’t happy with the way her life has been going. First, her husband leaves her. Then, she loses her job as a midwife at the local hospital, over the easily-fixed misplacement of a baby or two…

Now, Jean is sure a snooty real estate agent is blocking her efforts to find a rental in a nice part of town.

Given possession of a batch of incriminating photographs, who wouldn’t begin thinking about a little life-restorative blackmail?

Written in three acts and covering a quarter of a century, The Plastic Seed is an environmental thriller that explores the hypocrisy of some aspects of the philosophy of wellness. This novella is part satire of the human potential movement, and sincere testimony to the ability of humans to face facts when given no choice.

Review The Plastic Seed by Fany Van Hemelen:
The Plastic Seed is a novella from multiple perspectives and several timeliness.

Through the book a lot of special and twisted characters tell their story. Jean is sure that Carlana is the reason why she didn’t have more luck in life. As a former midwife, with an addiction to alcohol, she lost her job when she made mistakes.

Carlana is now a wellness- practitioner and Jean is jealous at her “perfect life”. The bitter woman has some plans with her.

The truth is that in this book nobody can be trusted and that the reality is different then it first looks. The characters in this book are not charming, even bad or weird, but indeed the novella is well-written.

The Plastic Seed gives interesting ideas about being the best and the business to accomplish this. The Plastic Seed is not a fast read, but the plot is definitely interesting. If you love thrillers, then you have to read this book.
