Being super isn't always super
This is basically a series of five short stories about Adonis Morgan. We learn through Adonis's struggles being a meta-human (the term for people with super powers) that being super ain't super for everyone. I listened to all the stories in one go and each of the stories was equally interesting. They were well done enough and in chronological order so it felt like chapters in a book containing snippets of his life. There is some language in the book, but I found it appropriate to the story/characters.
The narrators voice was pleasant to listen to and matched my perception of the character from his descriptions and actions. Female characters were voiced well and convincingly. It was easy to tell characters apart and the pacing was decent. As a whole, It was a good listening experience.
Overall, an entertaining listen with a good match between story and narrator. Normally I'd rate this 4 stars since I found myself wishing there was a bit more story. However, I wished this mostly because I had gotten so engrossed in the stories. I ended up re-listening to it while stuck in traffic the day after first finishing it (I had plenty of books loaded, but this was conveniently separated into short stories). The second time through it was still enjoyable, therefore it gets bumped up to 4.5.

This was a nice angle on the meta-human superhero story. Great character this Adonis Morgan. I love how you get to view the normal life of this kind of publicly shy hero, it made the human stand out in "superhuman". I did find it a bit short because I was really into it when it ended. Not to say the ending was bad, it was greatly resolved, I just wanted more. I think that's a good thing.
The only negative I have is about the narration. I felt rushed. I got the feeling the narrator had a time constaint and had to blurt out the entire book in a hurry. It took a while to feel comfortable with the speedy wording.
