Ordinarily I might give this a 3.5 star rating for the book's earnestness, but I really want to give it a zero, since I just "finished" reading it.

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!

I really Wanted to love this book.  Thought I was going to hate it, then ended up wanting to read the next one.  It was a serious flip flop of opinion but it did happen.  I was admittedly thinking this book would be a no star but now I can at least give it a three.

The premise is good.  Four women going through menopause who change into supernatural beings because of a certain woman's products.  There's a lot of fun to be had here.  It's not your typical superhero fare.  One woman becomes a villain and the other three become the heroes and the race is on to catch the evil product making villain who made them this way.  Granted this isn't the most amazing plot ever, but it works for the story.  The action scenes were fun to read and the settings where easy to picture in my mind, even the characters were clearly defined.  This book was just awesome…. in the second half.  That was the problem I hit 55% or so on my reader before it got this amazing, and was completely bored to tears with the dragging plot development slow-paced blah.

The writer writes well, the introduction to all characters clearly mapped who they were out very well individualy and in context with the people in their seperate story lines.  And this was done in good time.  But after that the check list is like, background stories--check, villains and heroes clearly identified-check, character personalty types identified-check, story moving forward-no.  Pages and pages of figuring out stuff none of the characters where designed to be stupid enough not to figure out.

For example how do you live your life the same everyday, change one thing in this case a tea, start flying and never quite literaly until the third act question why you are floating.

Right off the bat, I want to address the other reviews that call the ending a cliffhanger. It isn't a cliffhanger like a serial novel's. It is more like the end of Star Wars: A New Hope. The immediate concerns are addressed, but you know the bad guy is coming back. It is not as bad as some have made out, but it definitely makes you want the next book.
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 book has no ending. It is like reading a book and in the middle of the climax of the story you turn the page and someone ripped out the last chapter. I liked the characters, especially Jessica and Linda. but this is not a TV series that you leave at a cliffhanger and wrap it up on the first program of the next year's TV season. This is a book you need an ending. It's not a timed essay question and the time is up and you have to stop writing, Finish the story. I feel as though hours spent reading were stolen from me, THERE IS NO ENDING. Will never read anything by this author again. My time is worth too much to have it stolen from me, If I could I would have given it zero stars but one is the lowest accepted.

This book provided exactly what I expected. I enjoyed the romp but kinda struggled through it, too. At one point i nearly gave up, but i did want to see it through. The idea is creative... Menopausal women who develop super powers based on whatever menopausal symptom they were trying to relieve. It reads pretty much like a graphic novel, but without pictures, if you can imagine what I mean. Comic book heroes, in print. Not much depth... But i didnt expect depth, so that wasnt a problem.

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.
