Format: Hardcover
Spidey is dead tired after coming back from the Florida Everglades, trying to stop the rampaging Lizard. Now he's back in New York with MJ resting up. But, as they say, "There is no rest for the weary." MJ just got her cel phone bill back and she found out that somebody has stolen their number and using it! The phone company charged it to their bill! Peter Parker, Spidey's alter ego, tries to access his links at the Bugle to find out who stole MJ's number. What he discovers is less than ordinary. Now, Spidey must team up with his deadliest enemy, Venom, to thwart a sinister plan to steal all the world's bombs set up by the mysterious Dr. Octopus.
This book is action packed and full of suspense. Spidey fans will love this all new adventure for their favorite friendly neighborhood web-slinger

The book is about Spider-Man and a tangle up with his most worst villans Doc Ock and Venom. This was a very good book but takes long to read and hard to follow but you get suspense at the end of the story with the bomb and everything. It all starts with a simple cellularphone investigation but ends up as a mystery-suspense. It was a really good book. It was very fun to read and it's god to do a book report on because it'll make people get excited and want to read the book. I just want to say if your up to a good book and you hate Reading Rainbow read this book and you will probably get the idea that Venom is wicked strong.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What I've liked about Diane Duane's approach to writing Spider-Man in these novels is that she stays so faithful to how Spidey was created by Stan Lee. A Down to Earth hero with problems that everyone can relate with! I liked the cell-phone mystery that Diane wrote in this story,of Venom and Spider-Man teaming up to stop Dr. Octopus from blowing up New York, and how Mary Jane is given a lot of attention in the novel. Helping make the money ends meet while her husband is off saving the city. In a way this marked the end of the first round of Spider-Man novels begun in 1994 and it was a good way to end it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is possibly MY second favourite book in the trilogy (Venom Factor being the first fav). There are a TON of things I like about this book, making me want to read it over and over again. Especially when Spidey discover's one HUGE mistake that Ock made (Hey, what makes you think I'm gonna say it for those who haven't read it yet?) and foil Ock's umpteenth ruthless plan from making the Earth a living nightmare. And where's a good book without the symbiote Venom causing havoc, yet giving Spidey a helping hand in defeating Ock? Nowhere else but here.

*SNIFF* Do good things HAVE to end? 10 Feb 1998
By "rukhus" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was a book I read over and over(just like The Venom Factor). A perfect, funny, and exciting end to the wonderful saga of books starring Venom & Spiderman that Diane created in 1994. But why did it have to end!? Anyway, you HAVE to read this! It's to cool to miss!!

Super Reader 4 Aug 2007
By Blue Tyson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Doctor Octopus raids a factory and gives the people there quite a scare.

Both Spidey and Venom end up on the trail of some serious arms dealing, via talking to some Russian nogoodniks.

Serious, as in mini nuclear weapons. Doc Ock decides he wants to go nuclear on some people for their own good.

No-one with Spider super powers thinks this should be allowed.
