I called every store in the area, and I finally found it in Mason!



The novelization of Spider-Man 3 was supposed to come out on March 27th... but a lot of stores received it early, and were putting it out on the shelf! jenn_1 and I are both now proud owners of the book!!

Thanks, sarah531, for pointing me to the link on the Superhero Hype boards!

Of course, it's now 10:30pm, and I have to go to bed. Let's see how well that works...

ETA for mark_clark: Check this from page 149 (no spoilers, I promise)

A small boy in a Spider-Man costume, noticing that Peter was taking pictures, ran toward him with some sort of large plastic device on his wrist... a lever attached to a canister. The kid pushed the lever and a small gout of what appeared to be Silly String spurted out from it. Peter recognized it for what it was: a homemade web shooter. Peter tried to contemplate what it would be like building a functioning mechanical webshooter if he didn't possess organic spinnerets. He couldn't even begin to imagine how he would make such a thing.

--A wink from PAD to the fanboys. :D

I think you might be tempted to read them that book so that you have an excuse to keep reading it... : D

I need to check that out. I still need to finish the Superman book that Bisty recommended, and then one by Timothy Zahn, but I foresee an Amazon purchase in my near future.

How is your 12 days coming along???

12 days? I don't have an idea yet, let alone a single word written... Luckily, it's not due for a few weeks still. And I have a spring break to write it, so I'm still not worried. :)

Ahh thats always a good thing. I'm hopefully going to have a computer, either my old one fixed or a new one, just depends on how patient I can be...

Well, now I'm curious to see if any of our local booksellers have it! ;-) Of course, I won't be on a frantic search for it like you were, but we ALL can't be rabid Spidey fans, now can we?? *LOL*

Oh, and hope you're not TOO much of a zombie this morning. *hands you a gigantic Starbucks cup*

Happy Reading!! ♥

I was able to restrain myself to 65 pages last night, and then I read to page 122 this morning... LOL.

I'll probably be done before bed tonight!

LOL Love your icon!!!!! XD

Is it that kind of books who is like the movies but with comics???
htbthomas

No, it's a novel-style version of the movie - about 350 pages of text.

Glad you liked this icon - hee!

Well then, I must get the book soon but I probably won't read it until after the movie comes out.

A small boy in a Spider-Man costume, noticing that Peter was taking pictures, ran toward him with some sort of large plastic device on his wrist... a lever attached to a canister. The kid pushed the lever and a small gout of what appeared to be Silly String spurted out from it. Peter recognized it for what it was: a homemade web shooter. Peter tried to contemplate what it would be like building a functioning mechanical webshooter if he didn't possess organic spinnerets. He couldn't even begin to imagine how he would make such a thing.

Leave it to PAD to do something like that. That little piece was nice and it warms this fanboy's heart. But, I think Peter would have found a way to make webshooters.

Well, you know I'm sure it wasn't PAD's decision to use the organic webshooters in the movies, but Raimi's... but he's a good company man, so he'll write about it (and wink at it)! LOL.

This book is very good. Definitely buy it, even if you wait until after the movie. :)

Ooooooh this seems interesting!!! Enjoy it, as I know you will!:D I think I'll be picking up a copy as well...

It IS interesting. I love the Spider-Man novelizations. Did you read Marv Wolfman's Superman Returns novel? This SM3 novelization is filled with more depth and heart by far.

*flail* Really? SR novel? I am SO reading it. But is there more Clois fluff?

And I think I'll pick up a copy from Chapters later today. Or tomorrow. Wee! New books! :D
htbthomas
Mar. 22nd, 2007 04:42 pm (UTC)
I read the SR novel before the movie, just like I am with this. But more Clois? Not really. There is A LOT more filling out of Lex and Kitty, which I appreciated. And the whole "return to Krypton" sequence that ended up being cut from the movie is in there, too.

But this SM3 novel has the SR one beat so far... or maybe it's my higher fangirlishness for Spidey! Maybe you should ask someone less biased... lol.

Well I am definitely reading both of them. And either way, Spider-man is the first comic book hero I ever liked. I used to watch the cartoons religiously when I was younger! Spider-man was my first journey into geek-hood! I even watched spider-man 1 over 20 times. lol So yea I'm also a little biased. :P (But Superman is my number one comic book hero these days.:P)

Whoa.. totally awesome! Love the novelizations of the movies.. if they are well written.

*squee!*

Peter David writes beautiful novelizations. They seriously add TONS of depth. He's witty and his words are filled with imagery. Love him.
