    When I picked this up I thought it would simply be a fun prequel to the game coming out, but it's so much more. It holds a message that's so incredibly important today and not something I will forget anytime soon.

    Great book that makes me very excited for the new PlayStation game. Will be loved by Spidey and comic fans alike!

    I like when authors have something they want to say in their writing. I hate when the story suffers as a result of it. That's what this story felt like to me. It felt like someone trying too hard at conveying a message, rather than letting the nuances of the story do so instead. The story got lost in trying too hard to be progressive in its messaging, to the point where the messages and attempted themes are over explained, and the reader isn't given enough credit to pick up on them on their own.

The story got lost in trying too hard to be progressive in its messaging, to the point where the messages and attempted themes are over explained, and the reader isn't given enough credit to pick up on them on their own. For example, (view spoiler)[when Miles faces discrimination for his appearance, the event, and numerous subsequent references to said event, would carry more weight had it not happened because he was mistaken for someone who actually fit his exact description (hide spoiler)] . Or as another example, every time a character finds out that (view spoiler)[the main villain is female, the reaction is always a bit pointed, like the reader would assume the character would fight the villain differently, if we weren't blatantly "reminded" otherwise. Perhaps a better way to normalize a female villain is to treat her as... a villain. (hide spoiler)] I think too that, in getting caught up with what they were trying to say, the author forgot that Miles and Peter were in disguise a lot of time, between explaining facial expressions that neither of them should have been able to see while fully masked, to putting emphasis on Miles trying to figure out what it means to be "black Spider-Man" when again, while masked, this detail would have been absolutely irrelevant. Again, trying too hard to get a message across by focusing on the wrong places to do it. Maybe it's just me. Maybe I just can't get it. Maybe this all speaks to someone else better than it did to me, but for in my case, it just didn't sit right. I almost got the impression that the author had an opportunity, a platform as a result of writing about a well known character, and maybe tried to use it to say something. Unfortunately, if that was the case, the attempt fell a little flat. Themes aside, the story also reads like the author neither played, nor had much exposure to the story of the first game, and probably not the second either. A good number of inconsistencies existed between all three stories, including timelines of events referenced and characters encountered, as well as character behavior. If this story is not meant to be canon to the games, then maybe I can give the novel a pass, but there are too many details that contradict the other stories, including incorrectly referencing where Miles was when he was bit by his spider. If you want more from the universe of Insomniac's Spider-Man, this... exists. It's a quick read that's fairly easy to get through, but it's nowhere near the level of storytelling that exists in the games, and overall, is just generally disappointing.

    I love the Spider-Man video games, the comics, the character, and I really enjoy Miles Morales. I’m all for how progressive Marvel is being. This book had a lot of great progressive themes-often ones that get beat over your head a few times too many. I enjoyed the first half of the novel, especially with Starling playing a role, but once the bird thing started happening in NYC, I enjoyed the book way less. Why? To me it was extremely far-fetched.

I enjoyed the first half of the novel, especially with Starling playing a role, but once the bird thing started happening in NYC, I enjoyed the book way less. Why? To me it was extremely far-fetched. I know. This IS a book about heroes swinging from buildings with spider-powers. However, I feel both video games in this take on Spidey have managed to be relatively grounded. The plot of this novel was bizarre and hard to digest. Maybe it would’ve been better with stronger development and with less of a city-wide threat. Having played Miles Morales on the PS5, this novel didn’t add up at all nor did it add a single thing to enhance the story experience. The video game made no remarks whatsoever on this bizarre story. I feel like it would’ve been discussed considering the damage the bird scenario caused. Plus there were contradictions to the video game. Therefore, I don’t accept this novel as canon. It just... didn’t work. As a stand-alone? Perhaps but even then the flaws are still glaring. I wanted to enjoy this much more than I did. I’ll turn to Jason Reynolds’ Novel about Miles to rinse this story out. This one didn’t do it for me, which makes me sad. At least it read quick!

    Great exploration of Miles in this video game universe. Also really appreciated the introduction and handling of Starling, a relatively new comic character. Honestly, just a really fun Spidey read. There were a few themes that get bashed repetitively over the reader’s head, but otherwise a great read. Definitely recommended to fans.

    Overall it was very entertaining. The plot and antics were very predictable. I like the interactions with Peter and Miles.

    A little lacking in focus throughout the first half of the book. The villains didn't completely sell me. A little lacking in focus throughout the first half of the book. The villains didn't completely sell me.

    Entretenido, se le juzga en sus propios méritos, sin embargo, que se le haga promoción cómo precuela al juego es terrible, no se pusieron poner de acuerdo ni en que parque jugaba Miles con su papá

    Nice book. It’s about Spider-man and that’s enough for me I guess. I just would have liked to read more jokes like Peter’s ones, I love his sense of humour. Think I’ll pick up the other book related to the first game. Always a Spidey enthusiast.

    The story starts 0ff with Miles being cuffed and detained for a robbery that he tried to stop, and the promise of a book about Miles examining being a hero as Spider-Man while being profiled and mistreated as Miles by cops is great. Unfortunately as the story ramps up to the climax that thread falls more to the side. The climax is fun, if you don't think about it too much, but I felt too many moments of dissonance with what I thought Miles should do and what he did.
