The most important thing about this novel is how deft it is. The ways the women change are very clever, but the reasons are not obvious at first. As a woman moving into this phase of life, I found the author's characterizations complex and nuanced. I will admit that I cried several times while reading because the characters' inner struggles spoke to me. There is a whole lot more going on here than some women with powers running around. One might even use the term "symbols." I really related to Linda, and I am still processing what I read.
I would not recommend this book to someone looking for a comic book in novel form. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to women who find themselves in a place where they don't know what their bodies will do from day to day and also to the people who love women in that state. The powers might be exaggerated, but the emotions are all right on the money.
The writing is juvenile, in style and content, but i read it to the end and did want to see how it wrapped itself up. I love superheroes and had no trouble imagining myself in cape and boots. It just seemed that maybe it couldnt decide if it was an overly serious comic or a silly drama.I can't say i recommend it, exactly, but i do think other women of the same age may find its premise engaging.
The book has no ending. NOTHING gets resolved. In fact, we are left in the midst of a crisis.
That's cheating the reader. I don't like to be cheated. Perhaps the author thought this was a "comic book cliffhanger," but no. It's a cheat.
The book has a good enough "logic" going for it with its mad scientist and four women affected by her machinations. But viewpoint keeps skipping from one to another, which makes for much confusion and lack of focus. (Especially if you put the book down for a few days as I did. When I returned I tried to recall which character was which.)
None of the women seriously consider going to a real doctor concerning their problems, which slides them dangerously close to TSTL territory. Linda's husband is the only likable male in the story, and he comes across as the world's most perfect husband… At least he is until near the end.
So ordinarily I'd say that this book was worth a potential try-out, but the non-ending negates that. Nope, I can't recommend this book. I don't see how an actual publisher would okay anything like this. I'm so angry at the author for doing this!
My only (small) gripe is that the story ended on a cliffhanger. I did not realise this was a series. Normally I don't start reading an unfinished series, being of a completionist nature myself. That said, I'm looking forward to more novels featuring this amazing realistic group of women with enhanced powers. Thanks!
I will be purchasing copies of this novel for everyone on my holiday list this year. <3
All in all, this was a fun, original read and I look forward to more of the superhero adventures in this series.
