This was the very first Spider-Man novel I read. It turned me on to other novels and I was so glad to pick this up and read. A well written novel with lots of Spidey action. A fun thrill ride from beginning to end! ( )

Not as comic-bookish as some readers may expect, and more mature than its title may indicate, this is a pretty exciting yarn about everyone's favourite web-slinger.
