Product Description

From AudioFile

This is a fully realized performance of Duane's book, and, like the original comic book series, it's fast-paced, vapid, exciting and loud, with ridiculous dialogue and fantastic situations. It's just what it purports to be. The background sound effects are particularly realistic, from swamp noises to a gantry at Cape Canaveral, with many bullets in between. The characters...well, if you were pining at home with your child for a husband who has turned into a big lizard and can't turn back, how would you behave? The actors do the best they can with writing that, given the premises, is pretty good. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy, here we go again... March 13 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Yep, ANOTHER Diane Duane Spider-Man book. Yep, another pretty boring and usless story that barely ties into the last book (Venom Factor) and I can barely see how it ties into the last book (Octupus Agenda) which I have yet to read, honestly. Yep, Spider-Man fights Venom, the Lizard, and faceless mercs in boring, boring, BORING scenes. Yep, Diane calls him "Spidey" almost throughout the entire novel (as if typing Spider-MAN is too much effort). Yep, Mary-Jane is in it and is even MORE annoying. Yep, more annoyingly juvenile sex-talk and sex-do between Peter and MJ. Yep, there is a stupid sub-plot of MJ getting work in Florida only to find shady dealings while doing so. Yep, you're supposed to take this seriously. Yep, I can't beleive I took this long to write this review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting enough June 25 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All right, I admit it probably would've been a good idea to read The Venom Factor first, but what are you gonna do? Diane Duane tells a somewhat interesting story about the Lizard heading into Florida (the Lizard really gets around, doesn't he)and Venom trying to kill him. Of course, Spidey can't let that happen. Personally, I like the idea of someone trying to take on the Lizard, but it doesn't pan out right for some reason. Venom seems way too powerfull, he even takes on both Spidey and Lizard like it was easy (besides, I thought only Spidey was on Venom's hit list). Plus the shuttle hijacker thing is too predictable and kinda distracts you from the main story. This book is okay, it just has some flaws.

4.0 out of 5 stars Your Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman May 14 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Diane Duane does an excellent job of capturing the characters of Spiderman and Mary Jane in this book. I like how she combined Peter's adventures as Spiderman with events from his real life with Mary Jane. This is what has always made Spiderman one of the most enduring characters in comics. He seems like a real person with real problems and not just some guy who fights bad guys all the time. I didn't really like how the Lizard was handled in this book, but the interaction with his wife and kid did add to the story. This book should appeal to any new Spiderman fans brought in by the movie, or to longtime comic readers like myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few good stories to star the Lizard May 29 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Lizard has never been one of Spider-Man's better villians, but in this book; Diane Duane is able to craft a good story on him. As with the other two books; Venom Factor and the Octopus Agenda, Peter and Mary Jane get a good deal of focus in the novel, and I'm quite happy about that. It is something the Spider-Man comic book writers have forgotten a long time ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Spiderman/Venom story! Feb. 9 1998
Format:Mass Market Paperback
She did it again! Diane blew me away in this book! I think if you read the first one in this series(The Venom Factor) this is a defenite don't miss. I especially liked the blend of humor and ruthlessness Duane used when writing about Venom. That was cool!!
