      MENOPAUSE SUCKS! That's why these women in this book all need a bit of extra help.Linda starts using Dr. Cindy Liu's soap. That lackluster skin dryness, it goes away. Then Linda wakes up with a different body part one morning.She's a dude. Now I knew this was fiction because she did not poke her husband with it or shake it in his face. Because that's what I would have done. Anyways, she is now a big Hispanic guy instead of the sweet little lady she once was. Her husband is floored. Her kids are [...]

      Going Through the Change is about four women who develop superhero powers via naturopathy and pseudo-science. Can you tell the problems I had with this book? There were lots of things to like about it as well, but this is one of those 'you touched all the wrong spots' books for me.The book opens with Linda turning into a man. This scene is done well, and it stays on the light-hearted side of body transformations. Of course, I loved American Werewolf in London, so I clearly have a preference for [...]

      This book was a fairly entertaining fast read, but it wasn't quite what I expected. The whole premise cried out for more humor, which would have made it much more enjoyable. Sure, there was a tad, but the story leaned much more toward the science fiction side than it did the funny laugh-out-loud romp I was hoping to read. Still? The idea of menopausal women gaining super powers is inherently funny. I mean, why NOT harness those annoying hot flashes, and turn them into fireballs a gal can throw a [...]

      Going Through The Change is contemporary fiction most suited to women who want a light read about the menopause. Meet Linda a woman going through the menopause who has been trying Ms Lui's Chinese herbal products to help her with her symptoms. She's been using "Nu Yu" soap and it really has helped her become a new person, in fact it's promoted such a change in hormones that she has turned into a man.Patricia is an old friend of Cindy Lui, she's suffering from itchy skin as part of her hormonal s [...]

      This is an interesting and original take on the superhero genre. As a fan of comic books, I'm used to the origin story cycling around characters who are young, just entering into adulthood, but what if the changes happened on the other end of the spectrum? What if the knowledge of years of living could be brought to a whole new experience? This is what the novel focuses on, and does so brilliantly.Knowing my tastes, I instantly gravitated to Linda. She could theoretically be seen as the characte [...]

      I selected Going Through The Change to be my first beach read of the season. I wanted something light, but not cotton candy fluff. I had so much fun reading Going Through The Change. I myself chuckling quite a bit. It's basically a story about women who get superpowers while going through menopause. If that sentence alone doesn't sell you, then something is wrong with you. The story is funny and clever, and Bryant did a great job creating colorful, dimensional characters. Perfect for a light, fu [...]

      Disclaimer: I received a free electronic copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.Going Through the Change by Samantha Bryant follows five seemingly-normal women, all of whom happen to be going through menopause. However, "the change" isn't all these women have in common -- all of them have undergone inexplicable bodily alterations that have left them with unbelievable new abilities. Eventually, the women cross paths and three of them team up to figure out what has happened to them. O [...]

      Combining complex characters, some of whom happen to be women experiencing the menopause, with the engaging simplicity of a classic ZAPPOWW! to the face, Bryant creates a world that offers both escape from reality and an insight into very real issues. Both light-hearted and serious, this novel represents a growth in superhero fiction.Four women with very different lives are undergoing the menopause. But, in addition to the change and disruption they expected, it brings superpowers: Helen keeps s [...]

      I'm a fan of superhero prose, and I know the author slightly through social media, so I bought this (while it was on sale, I will admit). I find superhero prose interesting in large part because it can spend more time in the heads of the characters, and on their relationships, rather than feeling the need for a continuous visual spectacle of superpowered fights. For my personal taste, this particular book tips slightly too far over in the direction of thoughts, feelings and relationships versus [...]

    • C. Purtill says:

      I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this book. Normally I'm not attracted to books that have bright yellow covers and sort of scream "chick fiction!" But this story was both funny and a little heartbreaking and I heartily recommend to women whether they are "of a certain age" or merely just enjoy a good tale with some fun characters.Each of the 4 "superheroes" are women who have gone through menopause at various ages and for various reasons and who, at one point, used skin products created b [...]

    • N.N. Light says:

      As a woman who is going through the change, this book appealed to me. I enjoyed it and it had me laughing out loud. It's very creative and there's nothing like it on the market. Well written and highly enjoyable, I recommend it to all women everywhere! My Rating: 4 stars

    • Barb Taub says:

      I was excited to read the blurb for Samantha Bryant’s Going Through the Change because I thought the concept was simply wonderful. Take a bunch of relatively normal post-menopausal women and give them superpowers. What sort of awesome things would these middle-aged superheroines get up to? With great powers, what would be their great responsibilities—gun control? Health care? Education? Ashley Madison adultery websites? Would they need bifocal face masks? Forget each other’s superheroine n [...]

      This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]

      First off, menopause makes me nervous. Why? Apparently, ALL women go through it eventually. It hits you between 45-55 years old and it could last at least ten years, if not longer. Seriously, that's just cruel. I'm already heading into the age that dictates I should be experiencing some of these symptoms right now. All my friends around me, have been zooming through hot flashes for years, piling on the clothes because they are freezing, then sweating, then quickly stripping off their clothes and [...]

    • Naturalbri (Bri Wignall) says:

      Though I haven’t reached Menopause yet, I have seen others go through it and, just like all women, I dread the day. This brilliant book has put a lighthearted spin on the whole drama of The Change, and made it something new, exciting, funny and bearable for both men and women, well, sort of.Being a fan of some natural remedies, I liked that this book started out with each woman turning to a natural remedy to try and make The Change easier for them. They look to try and reduce the worst symptom [...]

      As a reader in the right age group and life stage for this book, I was really quite excited to be accepted to read, rate and review 'Going Through the Change' by Samantha Bryant. Having been an avid reader of chick-lit for more years than I care to remember(!) I was pleasantly surprised to find a book that fell within the genre for the older 'chick'!Unfortunately it wasn't really my cup of tea, although I'm positive that it will be very popular with many readers. Light-hearted, witty and fun,'Go [...]

      I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, this time I wasn’t so sure this was a book that I (a 20-something with her head in the clouds), would enjoy because it’s about menopausal superheros. But, HONESTLY, I was pleasantly surprised that I not only liked reading about ‘the change’, I actually quite enjoyed it. I really hope I can one day have super powers like one of the women in Samantha Bryant’s novel.To summarize this book in a few short words, I’d have to [...]

    • Tegan Wren says:

      WowWhat a fun read! As a busy mom, I appreciated the quick pace and fast chapters. As a fan of super heroes, I thoroughly enjoyed this fresh twist on ordinary people receiving extraordinary abilities and powers. My favorite character was Linda, hands down. I loved her kindness and loyalty, but also her ability to be bold when necessary. And the change Linda endures is quite a fascinating one. Bryant does a lovely job exploring it and its ramifications. I can be a bit Type A, so I also appreciate [...]

    • Quinn Fforde says:

      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 L [...]

    • Richard says:

      This was flipping awesome. At times realistic and at times surrealistic, it flits around a space between chick lit and comic-book action. The characters are a diverse group, thrown together by a common plight, learning about their new capabilities as they go along. It ends at a familiar point to lovers of the Saturday serial -- in a moment of finally catching a ragged breath before the next exciting scene So I'll be glued to the author's page waiting for the following book It's not over yet, I t [...]

    • Margot says:

      It's really more of a 3.5. This is a cute story, and the 50-year-old female* superhero novel isn't a genre with a whole lot of breadth (in fact, I'm not really aware of anything else?). So- I want to provide a big shout out to a story trying to reflect an audience that otherwise isn't seeing itself in scifi/ superhero writing. It's also a fun story and the characters personalities are engaging and believable. The overall story is where it stumbles, being both a little too straightforward but the [...]

    • Jackie Garcia says:

      InterestingHaving lived through Menopause this book gives one a new slant on the many things females go through at this time in their lives. The author has turned menopause symptoms in to super hero powers. Very suspenseful. Good read.

    • Mary E. Adams says:

      Love the twists and turns.

    • Gin Hunt says:

      Just didn't workI tried but this book just was a chore and I finally gave up. Great premise just not able to get into it or the characters. :(

    • Nik says:

      First of all I want to say I was not reading this book because I am not menopausal! It was a free kindel book. Funny, sweet, menopausal super heroes - what more could you want!

    • Renuka Soll says:

      This is a fun superhero book with menopausal women who become unlikely superheroes. The ending didn't tie up the loose strings; I'm waiting for the sequel.

    • K Idamari says:

      Change - Delightful and RefreshingFour women - Patricia, Linda, Helen and Jessica face menopause. But their Change isn't just mood swings and hot flashes: Linda rapidly sheds her feminity, Patricia has a peculiar skin condition, Helen's hot flashes now excite her and Jessica comes out of her depression as light as air. The one thing other than the biological change happening to them is their contact with Dr Cindy Liu and her proprietary products they all used. Not all of them take to the change [...]

    • Jennifer Seyfried says:

      I really liked this book, good premise and gripping storytelling, but I would almost give it 2.5 stars just because of the ending. NO spoilers as usual, but the book has no conclusion at all. It just stops dead at the end of a battle with a less than victorious outcome for our rag-tag band of wanna-be heroes. I thought part of the charm of this story was the haphazard way the potential heroes try to come to grips with their situations and move forward with no clear plans or viable teamwork, beca [...]

      *I received this book from the author/publisher for a honest review.First, I want to say that the premise is solid. A group of women obtaining their superhero powers after going through the change (menopause) and then seeing an alternative medicine doctor to help their symptoms. Each woman have different remedies and have different outcomes BUT later come together to figure things out. The book while humorous and light, took me a while to read and I found myself re-reading back a few pages becau [...]

    • Lynette Sheppard says:

      What if Menopause came with an extra symptom? Say something like superpowers? Now that’s a symptom we might be able to work with. Alas, with great power often comes great responsibility. (Right, as if menopausal women need any more responsibilities.) Still, superpowers could come in handy. Very handy.Samantha Bryant’s new novel, Going Through The Change, is a delightful tale of science gone awry. Four women develop unique superpowers using alternative creams or teas created by a menopausal m [...]
