Another Alex Rider adventure. This one features a crazy Russian who wants to rule the world. Why does poor Alex keep running into our Alex? This kind of books make me wonder if there are this many crazy folks in the world. God I hope not!
Alex tries to act like a normal 14 year old, getting a girlfriend, but the life of teen super spy has no breaks for puberty. His Wimbledon ball boy assignment leads to a drug dealer assignment, which leads to helping the CIA, which leads to Alex and the crazy Russian (who wants to adopt Alex).
I can't tell you more about the book without revealing more of the plot than I want to. As all novel of this genre, it's a bit predictable, especially being a young adult variety, but it's still a fun read. It's an 8.2. I'll finish the rest of the series before I complete these 100 books.
