Without being too obvious, this book asks some deep questions: Can a super hero take down white supremacy? Is racism really some evil mortal villain? What responsibility do you have for the community you come from?
I wish this book had a little more action, but I enjoyed the drama of this young spider man as he navigates home and an elite private boarding school. I have lots of love for his friend/side-kick, this cool Korean kid, that gets way more depth then Spiderman Homecoming's Filipino side-kick that spends the whole time being a fan boy.
Just a teen trying to get his homework done, make his parents proud, ask out his crush, and, ya know, be Spiderman. NOT an origin story (thank goodness!)
I generally prefer superhero books to be more about the character and less about the fisticuffs. However, this book was so much about Miles Morales & his adolescent troubles that the Spider-Man element felt completely tacked on. In fact, I think it would have been a lot better if the character had been a regular teenager and not Spider-Man at all.
For a story firmly planted in the Marvel Universe but full of great characters and a well-developed plot, watch "Spider-Man: Homecoming" instead.
This book is an excellent take on Miles Morales, letting him be a teenager just as much as a superhero. There's a lot going on in the book, and it's the the author's credit that it all comes together so well. This one's going straight to my Staff Picks.
Great book! I was searching for something intriguing and thought that I should try this, it being a best-seller and all. Most of the book is suspenseful and just describing the life of the average teenager with a good and very funny friend. The book is 100% "clean" so there's nothing to be scared of when you pick it up. A couple of serious topics but that's it. If you want something adventurous and funny, here it is. Spider-Man is truly here.
Absolutely brilliant!! This is such a great novelisation that you forget about the superhero tie in, because Miles could be any teen worried about if he'll be good or bad, and whether the girl he likes likes him back. Very timely and well done, teens will enjoy this one!
