My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was different then things that I normally read, but I love it. It kept me going back and forth trying to figure out what was going to happen next. This book also had a few different main charters, and at 1st I had trouble keeping them straight. However, once I got about halfway through it got easier. I would definitely recommend everyone to read this book.

First things first! Cliff hangers should be illegal! The cliffhanger at the end of this book spartan kicked me off the cliff with no warning and no parachute to slow my fall. This story has amazing storytelling! I was drawn into the book from page one. From Gigi’s mental disability, to Ellen’s weight loss problem to Lilly’s divorce, each person has something that’s real world relatable and something that at least one person has experience with. The different perspectives were done seamlessly and wonderful. I didn’t get lost on whose perspective I was reading. I was glad you get to see inside Dr. Kite’s perspective. Most of the time you don’t get to see that.
This book did get me thinking. Are we pretty close to achieving this in real life if we keep going? It spurred so many questions about in real life and it made me question “Would I want something like that?
I enjoyed reading this book, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Alterations (Alterations Trilogy, Book 1) by Jane Suen – Review by Krista Vaughan

Dr. Kite can make all your dreams come true… The love of your life, getting over a divorce…and it’s all done with a little chip implanted in your body. Sounds easy, and too good to be true. Mind control chips to give you what you want. Sounds scary to me. An intriguing story about an alternative “medical” treatment to give you your dreams. Or are they nightmares?

Alterations was a very interesting read, while Sci/fi isn’t usually my thing I really enjoyed this short read. While alterations was a short read Jane Suen was able to pack a lot of information into her pages and developed her characters well. Her characters are so well developed and the story so intriguing that you’ll find yourself quickly devouring this book in one sitting. Ms. Suen gives us so much mystery,and drama that she will keep you guessing until the very end. So if your looking for a Sci/fi filled with great characters, mystery, drama and more then you should read Ms. Suen’s Alterations.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alterations is a mysterious sci-fi read that draws you in from the first chapter and holds you captive until the last. What really drew me into this book was the theory of it all. Science is constantly advancing, changing, and things like cellphones, microchips, and robots are ever-changing – the impossible has become possible. So, when the idea of ‘altering’ something on cellular levels is posed in the way that it has been in this book, I was hooked. The events of the book are told in such a way you’re constantly finding something new out – either about the advancements of a doctor’s technology or that of the lives of people he’s directly or indirectly affecting. You can see the intentions of the tech is good, but there’s that little voice in the back of your mind whispering, ‘something’s not quite right here…’.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This original and intriguing story is the first book in a new trilogy and having been gripped all the way through this first instalment I now can not wait for book two. This fairly short but action packed read is a real page turner of a sci-fi thriller and although not my normal genre I was thoroughly immersed in the unique storyline and felt engaged with the main characters. This is a book that really gets the reader thinking. The story is told from three very different but relatable women’s view, Gigi, Ellen, and Lilly all of whom are desperate to change their lives and so turn to the fourth main character, the mysterious Dr. Kite. He offers them a radical new medical procedure, a ‘quick fix’, an implant that can control their mind. The three women are willing to risk the unknown side effects in the hope that they find the happiness they crave. However, will getting their deepest desires become their worst nightmare. A thought provoking read which I definitely recommend and as the story continues in book two I am now eager to read the next instalment.

I enjoyed this book by Jane Suen. Alterations explored the possibility of individuals being able to change aspects of their bodies or minds with technology. The story gave us a glimpse of what the future could be, both the good and the bad should humans try to go down the path of playing god in the attempt to perfect the human body. Jane Suen’s novel provides both hope and caution to humans as we continue to look for easy fixes in a quest to live forever. Jane Suen is a new author for me but based on the book Alterations, I look forward to reading more from her.

Intriguing sci-fi
Alterations is a very intriguing sci-fi thriller. Jane Suen does an excellent job interweaving the character’s stories. The concept of the chip has an originality and drew me in from the start. Easy-to-read and thought provoking I devoured the book. I am really looking forward to continuing the trilogy and seeing what happens with Dr. Kite.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After reading the synopsis, Alterations intrigued me. The author chose to start with a slow build then implementing twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and waiting for more. I appreciated the various characters and their points of views. It was cohesive and while some areas left you with questions, they were answered masterfully later in the story. Some of the events left my jaw hitting the floor. The idea of an implant that the character Dr.Kite made is not far-fetched in the real world, making this story a hair tingling possibility. I am looking forward to reading the next book and follow the trilogies progression.

What would you do if someone offered you a way to lose weight quickly and easily with no surgery and no side effects? How about if they offered to treat a chronic illness that you have? Or maybe help you overcome bitterness and anger towards an ex? Would you do it? In Alterations, find out what three women will choose to do and what the consequences are in their lives. This was a very fast read, and I loved the concept and story. The only thing I didn’t like was that it felt very incomplete due to being the first book in a series. I recommend reading this story as well as the rest of the series!
