Publisher's Summary

Being a superhero should be fun. After all, a world of super powers is a world where Amazonian juggernauts made of candy battle guys in spandex that drive talking cars. Irene loves that weirdness, loves the game of fighting, and loves being a four-foot-tall woman who still gets to drop big heavy objects on villains' heads. In 1980, that fun is in danger. A mad scientist who murders people for his research has everyone afraid. Two of the friendliest super-powered rivals around stop playing and go for the kill. If superheroes and villains aren't safe in their own homes, how can having powers be anything but a nightmare? Irene will not let that happen. She wants to show her friends - a 10-year-old grim reaper and a zombie mish-mosh of living and metal parts - that their lives don't have to be grim. With the help of a superintelligent spider, Team Tiny will make the world fun again. Except maybe it's the spider who's in charge after all.

    "As good as, "I'm a super villain""

    Please don't tell my parents I'm a super villain was a great find in story, writing, style and narrator. The sequels have yet to really live up to it. "I did not give that spider superhuman intelligence," lives up to that original confluence. Further, it is a treat for fans to see Spider and Mourning/morning dove develop and even more so to see more of Goodnight. Finally, psychopomp is a fun addition to the cast.

    "If you liked the first 3 books you will love this"

    I got this book last night and if you liked the first 3 books you love this one too. It is a stand alone book so don't be afraid to get it, it will start you down the pathway for the next 3 books.

    Story
    "Fun and interesting prequel to the series"
    Any additional comments?

    If you are picking this book up clearly you already know that this precedes the previous books in this series. It is interesting to see the way that the various heroes and villains got their start. The characters are fun and interesting, and the universe itself is consistent to its own rules. A big plus for me! I was at first dubious, but I'm glad I finally picked it up. It was a fun ride throughout and while it is missing the inscrutable machine as it predates their birth, it's still a fun read. If you like the first ones you know you're in a pick this one up, so stop dithering and do it.

    I am a professional driver and therefore spend a lot of time on the road. Audible has been a great source of entertainment for me.

    Story
    "interesting origin story for before Penny's time."

    It is interesting to see where several of the parental figures in the main series came from and to set what made them the way they were. The most interesting was morning dove. Good read.

    Story
    "Loved this book,"
    Would you listen to I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence! again? Why?

    yes. The story was plenty entertaining, and the performance was outstanding


    What other book might you compare I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence! to and why?

    Hard to compare this book with any other. Yes, there are other superhero books out there, many of which are satirical, but none are quite the same style or mood of the "please dont tell my parents" series which richard roberts has created. Its just a quite unique approach.


    What about Emily Woo Zeller’s performance did you like?

    What didnt I like? Ms. Zeller simply did an outstanding job. She really brought the characters to life. Each character was distinct not just in tone, but in patterns of speech and even dialect


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Learning the origins of Spider was fairly moving. Thats not a spoiler, as anyone who has read this series should be able to surmise from the title that Spider would have her origins explained here. I cant really go into more details about the book without giving more away than is prudent


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the author keeps it up with this series. And pray that he never loses Ms. Zeller as a narrator because she seriously hits the nail on the head with this series.
