Great Collection of Novellas and Short Stories

I got this expecting a continuous story. That wasn't what I got. I was also expecting this to be based off the Ultimate Spider-man comics. Didn't get that either. This, however, was fantastic. I'm really glad I picked this up! The collection is fantastic!

Solid short story collection!

I really enjoyed this, even the first story that's yet another retelling of his origin, but is made somewhat unique by hearing in book format. The Mysterio short story is a real dud (it legit makes no sense, felt very rushed with a complete lack of ending), but otherwise this is very enjoyable, with excellent narration throughout by Rivera, particularly his JJJ! Definitely recommend it!!

Spider-Man

In general a great audio book for Spider-Man fans. Some of the stories were better than others but no real misses. Most of the stories seemed to have to do with “human” or psychological problems. The first story or origin was the best. The last 2 finished strong with the last actually pulling in lots of emotion.

exciting at first

i was excited from the foreword from stan lee and the first chapter, but then the story turned into life lessons and morals we've heard 1000 times. them rivera does a great job bringing everyone to life but the stories are lacking in some regard or are too predictable. I enjoyed it but some things felt forced or unnecessary.

The So-So Spider-Man

I’m a huge Spider-Man fan and have heard great things about this book online but honestly I don’t see what other people love about it. The narrator does a fine job but the stories inside are kinda boring and stale. This is definitely the bottom of the list Spider-Man book.
