    1. I really like the concept of Users. Plus the imagination put I to it. Stacy turned a bad life situation into a kind of super hero book, almost comic like if you can picture it that way. But not funny comic, superhero comic. The Book itself is about addicts that have speciall abilities. Users , perfect name by the way, are ppl with abilities like the main character Carter, he's fire, meaning he can throw fire from his hands and later once he learns to control them, a whole lot more. Their are pus [...]

    2. I really enjoyed reading a superhero book that was not the typical mainstream comic book type of story. The supes being addicts wasn't necessarily so interesting, it was more the fact that the characters just felt like normal folks that made it interesting. Based on the details of the meetings I wasn't too surprised to read at the end that the author had been an addict in the past himself.A few details that I liked were no cheesy character nicknames, the relative rarity of Scorchers and the vari [...]

    3. The best things about this book are the synopsis and the cover. And, unfortunately, the cover looks like it’s been taken from the CW TV show The Arrow – the profile reminds me a lot of Stephen Amell’s character.I have to say from the outset that I could not finish reading this book (and it was only 154 pages long, so I think that says a lot). I tried, I really did. But after the fourth prologue and the fourth switch from third person to first I just couldn’t take it any more. I was swall [...]

    4. First line: PrologueIt never ceases to amaze me, how life can be so fragile yet at the same time so tenacious."Users" is a different kind of superhero book. Yeah, I know that's an overused phrase, but here it applies. It's not a fun superhero story you'd feel good about your kids reading. This is a gritty, bloody, nasty story full of gritty, bloody, nasty people. And I mean that it a nice, but very honest, way. That's who these characters are."Users" tells the story of Carter, a recovering drug- [...]

    5. USERS -- Scorchers, Movers and Blinders are just some of the 'superhero' types who struggle for daily acceptance. February 14, 2015This is the first book I have read by the team of Stacy and Jennifer Buck. This was a story about a world with persons who had special powers who were not always well received by others in this world. Carter, the main character was a former heroin drug addict who still struggled daily with his addictive habits and was struggling to come out the other side and be more [...]

    6. I listened to the audible version of this book, so I'll start with a critique of the narrator. Narration: While the narrator's normal speaking voice sounds a lot like how I imagine the voice of the protagonist, the acting was way off. Several times during this short book I found myself laughing due to unintentional humor as a result of awkward acting at presumably tense moments. The story: I really wanted to like this book. I'm a fan of superhero novels and don't shy away from darker subject mat [...]

    7. It starts with a prologue in first person at a shrink's office but for some reason when Carter starts to tell the story it switches to third person. Who tells a story about himself in third person? To make it better the story he's telling even switches to another character's point of view! This ineptitude screams Amateur right at the beginning, which made the rest hard to read because I started thinking like a critiquer not a reader. The rest is really two stories smushed together; neither held [...]

    8. Good readDespite it being a superhero book,it showed realism with a mix of action and fantasy. It gives you a sense of what it is like to be an addict and how dangerous it is. What it take to beat addition is what is in your very soul.Recommend this book to anyone who wants to beat odds against you that seem impossible to beat and survive. Isn't that what winning is surviving.

    9. A worthwhile read for superfiction fansI thought I was the only recovering addict writing superhero fiction but turns out I'm in interesting company. This is a well told tale but could use another edit pass for typos and formatting. Still, I kinda wanna reach out to the authors and put together some kind of anthology of addict superhero stories

    10. Fun readGreat action, storytelling and conflict. I strongly suggest you get proofreaders. There were many instances of typos and homonyms; peaked instead of peeked, to instead of too, etc.

    11. Absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed the human aspect of the characters. Carter isn't perfect, far from it. He struggles with everyday life, like each of us. Very unique approach. Can't wait to read more.
