Like the movie Hancock? This is better.
Users is not a story with the classic sense of super power heroes. Decisions are not "I will destroy them all, it is for their own good, no one can stop me ... muhaha".These are flawed humans trying to figure things out. Nearly every character has redeeming qualities. I really liked that as it felt more realistic.
I wasn't a fan of all the Seattle references, because I am not sure they added to the story. Perhaps it is because I am from Seattle and hearing those references made me think about my own experiences. I also wasn't too hot on the cursing. I am used to fake cursing myself. (By Zeus's beard! / Blood and Ashes! / Nerf herder)
Overall, it was a fantastic story and I am going to have to pick up the next few in this series. If they are as good as this, I'll end up branching out and seeing what else Stacy/Jennifer Buck have to buy.
I am looking forward to reading the next one.
I have not.
Maybe 2-3 sittings. 5 hours is a long time to sit in one spot.
