I saw this on the shelf at B&N and was taken in by the cover and by the concept -- you don't see many superhero stories in book form -- so I downloaded the sample to my Kindle.
I gotta say, though, after getting a few pages in, there's something about the writing that strikes me as very flat. I haven't applied my super powers of artistic analysis to it yet, so I don't have a concrete sense of where that feeling comes from, but my instinct is that the writings leans too heavily ...more

Micheal Carrol’s Superhuman was a well rounded book that kept me interested from start to finish. Although it seemed a bit childish to me thats what made me truly enjoy the book because it made me reminisce on a time when I imagined being a superhero and beating the evil villain.
I feel that the theme is something like some people may have more abilities or gifts than other people. But having these gifts does not necessarily make you a better person.

The problem? Why it got 3 stars? The author.
2 major issues that made me want to knock on his skull, "McFly?! Are you in there?"
1) There is a character that is strong and carries a giant metal sword fighting a bad guy. In the book it actually says she drops the sword to jump up and punch her? R ...more
I've been putting this book off because of the cover--it looks like some slasher R.L. Stine novel, doesn't it? But I was actually impressed. It's like an action videogame and I didn't get bored at all. A horrible pla ...more

The nitty-gritty: It's not as original as I would have wanted. The story has the typical formula of young superheroes saving the world, reminding me a lot of young X-Men & the Avengers teen version. Include Disney's The Incredibles and other superhero epics as the basics for this story. The usual maniacal super villains who want to rule the world causes all the trouble and mayhem that the overworked superheroes try desperately to control and defeat. But for all it's archetypal tale of good ...more
