You don't realize how important good prose is to story immersion, until you read one tale that has it and the next one tale doesn't or vice versa. Good prose, that moves beyond serviceable, is important to making plot and characters draw you in. This one had it.

Also, the plot and characters had depth and were interesting. Good surprises in this one. Spidey mostly felt like Spidey, and the villain was villainous in good ways. I did have some issues with both though. The plot dragged a little at t

This was my first superhero novel, and it was a really nice, quick read. The first thing I liked was the choice of villain, which was original and fresh.

This book had a surprisingly political message to it. Not what I would expect from a superhero novel but I guess it was a way for the author to get his opinion out there. Overall a pretty good read though if you like comic book characters.

A very entertaining novel. A little dark especially for Spider-man, but with Carrion as villain it does fit a theme. I wasn't really expecting much from this, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

The author uses both first and third person in this book; the times that the author spends in Spider-man's point of view, he uses first person and all the rest, he uses third person. I found that switch from first person to third person to be on the confusing side.

The writing was good. It wasn't over the top and the brief mentions of different super heros and super villains weren't out of place. Great book that I could not put down until I was finished!
