Read full description of the books:
Like most of the other reviewers I read this book more because of Jim Butcher then Peter Parker. Over all, it was a good story with 2 minor flaws. First, one of Butcher's biggest talents is working out the logic of his worlds. The world in this book that of Marvel comics. It's a rather schizophrenic world: there are hero's, and aliens, super-science, and magic, and gods from every pantheon. Butcher throws a couple of passes at applying order to all of that; but he's not really allowed to change it, nor can he modify Spidey's relationships. Sometimes that shows.
Second, Spider-Man is too much like Harry Dresden. That's why I got the book in the first place. Spider-Man cracks wise during fights, as does Dresden. Dresden always goes after the Villan no matter the odds, so does Spider-Man. They're both saps about women, and they both do guilt a little too well. The problem with all of this there are points in the book where you shake your head and ask, "Why is Harry Dresden Kissing Marry Jane?" It's oddly distracting...
Beyond that, it's a good book. I don't have quite as much to say about why it's a good book as I do on the book's flaws, but you'll have to trust me. The villains really seem like they might beat Spider-Man, the characters are compelling, and the action is nice and solid. I'd recommend it to fans of Dresden. But you'll need to think of it as a parallel universe where Malcolm Dresden picked a different name for his kid - a name that contained fewer stage magicians, and the kid got a radioactive spider rather then a magic staff.

Read information about the authorJim Butcher is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera, and a new steampunk series, the Cinder Spires. His resume includes a laundry list of skills which were useful a couple of centuries ago, and he plays guitar quite badly. An avid gamer, he plays tabletop games in varying systems, a variety of video games on PC and console, and LARPs whenever he can make time for it. Jim currently resides mostly inside his own head, but his head can generally be found in his home town of Independence, Missouri.
Jim goes by the moniker Longshot in a number of online locales. He came by this name in the early 1990′s when he decided he would become a published author. Usually only 3 in 1000 who make such an attempt actually manage to become published; of those, only 1 in 10 make enough money to call it a living. The sale of a second series was the breakthrough that let him beat the long odds against attaining a career as a novelist.
All the same, he refuses to change his nickname.
