Alterations (Alterations Trilogy Book 1) by Jane Suen – Review by Erica Shoebridge

Alterations (Alterations #1)Alterations by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a good book with an interesting premise. A magic little implant to solve your big problem, what could go wrong? A topical story premise in this age of science, where editing DNA is possible and carries with it a big debate of ethicality. Dr. Kite is as you would expect, smart but a little fanatical and rushing progress in spite of problems (and let’s not forget his questionable title of “Dr.”). The women are desperate for a change. A heady combination. The story moved along well and I liked seeing the perspective from not only the doctor’s eyes, but the patients as well. However, at times it felt like an omniscient narrator barged in to make observations that were not in line with the character’s voice. It would have been even better if the characters just spoke for themselves, not being overridden with interjections about them. Something about that felt a bit inauthentic to me. However, besides that, I thought the book was well-written and worth a read.
