Is there anything you would change about this book?
Not to bash. I think William Christie has great potential. But one of the reasons I purchased this was I read a review that stated .....the most intelligent spy novel I've read since the early LeCarre books.... This is not the case. If your looking for a unrealistic spy book written at the teen level, this is for you. I cant believe someone said this was like LeCarre. Also, the location is Russia but the narrator is unable to create a Russian accent so the characters are all American. Also, the Alexei's handler sounds like an over dramatic marvel comics villain.. If your in the mood for an ultra realistic, sophisticated and satisfying spy book try Typhoon by Charles Cumming, or I just finished a fabulous investigative thriller called A Dying Breed by Peter Hanington...
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I didnt finish it.
Did Ari Fliakos do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
I wish he created Russian accents for the Russians.
Did A Single Spy inspire you to do anything?
Look for something more sophisticated.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, it started out fine, but then the lead character turned into a super hero and it left reality behind.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would have made his skills more realistic and actually given it a proper ending - it just stopped. I thought something was wrong with my iPod, but no, that was the end.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
No, because if it ended the way the book did, I would feel cheated.
