Reviews Miles Morales

  • Nic Stone
    Before reading this novel, I thought: COOL! A Black and Puerto Rican superhero slinging webs and saving lives! After reading, I think the same thing... but MAN is there so much more to this book than that. Truthfully, I was expecting Spider-Man's regular antics, just with some brown skin beneath the spandex suit (silly me, though, right? This is a Jason Reynolds book. Obviously not going to be that cut and dry). What I HADN'T considered was that ...

    Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for approving my request for a free digital copy in exchange for a review.Can I have sequel, please? Please make this a series! "Miles Morales" is my first foray into the world of Jason Reynolds and I am now and will forever be a full time resident. This book is nothing short of exceptional. Despite being a fan of Peter Parker (and Spiderman in general), I never quite got around to reading about Miles. I knew...

    I... did not like this.This was not what I was expecting, it reads as a middle grade book and even when the book touches important topics, I felt that it did so in a very shallow way. The writing was... it was quite juvenile and even when this book has very little Spider-Man and there's a lot of description of Miles's life, I still didn't grasp completely who he was and what he wanted. He might have been the weakest character in this book. I also...

    I loved this! Even though it was about a superhero it felt very real. Miles’s situation is one that many people are in and I feel like a lot of people could relate to his story. I also liked how this book touches upon the prison system and the effects it has. Overall, this book is a perfect blend of Spidey fun and real world issues.

    One of the worst books I've ever read. There is no plot or story. A Spider-Man book where nothing really happens except Miles goes to school for a week. We get no answers why this teacher is harassing Miles, why all these Mr. Chamberlains are targeting minority youths or why they are having the same dreams. The villain of the book is only in it for the last 20 pages. We get no resolution. Miles uses his powers in his civilian clothes to win a dan...

    4.5 starsSolid execution and a great introduction (for me) to the character of Miles Morales. I appreciated how Reynolds put the Spider-Man part on the back burner and gave us a (mostly) down-to-earth story about a (mostly) down-to-earth kid. The dialogue popped and while there may not have been a ton of action til the end, I was with it the whole way. Chamberlain called to mind Chapman of the Animorphs books -- another one of those creepy-teache...

    AHHHHHHH. FINALLY.FINALLY one of these Marvel or DC tie-in books that I've ENJOYED. A LOT. LOVED. I hope there are more especially w the Miles animated movie coming out next? year. It's great because it reads like a Reynolds book that just happens to be about Spider-Man.

    3.5In Miles Morales Spider-Man, we follow sixteen year old Black and Puerto Rican high school student Miles, who's also a Spider-Man. The story is focused on his daily life, managing different parts of his identities and trying to figure out who he is.I enjoyed reading the novel. It felt more like a contemporary than a Marvel story. Undoubtedly, Miles is Super Hero and he does help people and fight bad guys, but I felt the focus was on his daily ...

    I absolutely burned through this book in one setting. Jason Reynolds is a master of character development, and he's done such a fantastic job with Miles Morales. I haven't read the comics yet but this is a Spiderman I can get behind. Well-paced story, and love how the relationships, both family and friendship, are so well fleshed out. Looking forward to reading more of Miles in the future.
