Most Helpful Customer Reviews
When I stumbled across the first two chapters of this book online and read them, I knew I had to order the book. The characters' voices were spot on when it came to what I expected, not just from the movie but from reading them in comic book form as well. This was a very enjoyable read for me and I was upset when it was over because I was wanting more. The biggest surprise for me was the author's take on Peter - Spider-man. I liked the look she gave us inside his head and how he wasn't ready to be part of a team. Well done Alisa Kwitney! You are correct this book was the chocolate in my peanut butter. A well done mix of comic and novel.
