The story starts with a bang. A car driving at full speed towards a concrete wall, mysterious operatives cleaning up after the crash. As the mystery unfolds, we follow the life of three women irreparably altered by reckless experimentation. Be prepared for a short and fast-paced page turner you'll probably be able to read in a single setting.

Alterations by Jane Suen is a short novella about the price of getting what you always thought you wanted, but will the price be too high. This story centers around three women – Gigi, Lilly and Ellen – all who are looking for a miracle to give them the life that they think they need, enter Dr. Kite who is so much more than that miracle giver that he seems to be in the beginning. While all three women get what they thought they wanted, when the bill comes due will they be willing to pay the cost for it. While this was a really short read, at 110 pages, I found it really engaging and that Suen made sure to grab you from the beginning and didn’t let go until the end. If you are looking for a good read for a weekend snowed in than this is definitely the book for you.

Alterations by Jane Suen – 4 OMG I NEED MORE!!!! STARS Have you ever been happy with some aspect of your body or your life and you would do just about anything (but the work needed to change it) to change it? Have you ever wished there was a quick and painless solution? “Alterations” is almost a syfy take on the wizard, the tinman and the lion, except it’s about three women who are looking for an easier way to life. This is a cautionary tale about being careful what you wish for. I really, really enjoyed this story and would love to read it as a full length novel with the characters completely fleshed out and more development to the events. At 110 pages, I was able to rip through this quickly as I was frantically flipping pages to read more. I will now stalk Ms. Suen and look forward to reading more of her work.

Alterations by Jane Suen was a short novella that left me shocked! It's a science fiction story with lots of suspense and mystery. The storylines are compelling. The three lead females are each going through things and each character is unique. The author does a great job going between each character's story. I think my favorite storyline was Ellen's. I can relate to her struggles with losing weight and wanting badly to be able to lose it. It is amazing that one day we could be doing similar things that happen in this book. These women are so desperate to change their lives they go to this doctor kite and in the end have to deal with the consequences. I found this book to be interesting and unique. I was pretty shocked by the doctors methods and how he did things. Overall I liked it ok. I think this would make for an interesting and weird tv show and would rate it 4 stars.

Alterations by Jane Suen 5 Stars Ok my first book by this author and my mind is blown. This is about three women, each with a different issue in life. This is also about one man, “Dr.” Kite, who set out on a mission to help these three women with their life issues by offering them an answer using an implant that can control their minds. A very quick read which definitely left me wanting much much more. I could have read the stories of these three women and Dr. Kite for many more pages. Although short, the author fit in enough backstory for each character that I was able to understand and fall in love with each one. It brought up questions in my own mind, if I could pick the one issue in life I struggle with would I take the same risks these three women took? Especially knowing that when something seems too good to be true, it could be just that..too good to be true…. I actually loved this book, her writing had me wrapped from page one, and I'm now very curious about her other books and will be checking those out as well. This will definitely leave you thinking and wanting more.

Alterations by Jane Suen is a short novella that is full of suspense and mystery. This is my first book by this author, the twists and turns that she takes you on will keep you engaged until the end. You will enjoy her writing skills and the creation of characters that are true to life and connectable. This book will leave you with questions on if things like the situation in this book can really happen. Find out what happens with these characters, 3 women, want different things but will they have the same outcome? This story is about three women who all have different lives but one thing in common, they want something changed. What will happen to them when they turn to Dr. Kite? Will he give them what they each desire? How much are they willing to risk to get what they want? What they desire, could be their deepest nightmare. Each of the three characters in this book have their own personalities and their own issues. They all have some type of insecurity that is making them unhappy. They just want to be happy but at what cost will they come? Everything has a price, are they willing to pay to get what they want? This story is a little different but I found it enjoyable and will read more from this author. I would like to see more or a few more details from these characters but you can keep up with the flow. The secondary characters play important parts in this story that without them the story wouldn't flow as easily. I highly suggest you read this short novella by Jane Suen. It is fast reading that you will be able to lose yourself in. You will be able to relate to these characters and they have a way of pulling you into their messed up lives. This story will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat in parts, turning pages just to see what will happen next. I can't wait to read another one of her books. Find out what happens when someone tries to take control of these women's brains. Will they find their happiness?
