    1. OH. MY. GOD. I did not know this was coming out this year I am so excited this is literally me right now:Even though I'm insanely sick and feel like dying this just made my day. I can't wait!!Edit:I finished the book a while ago but never got around to reviewing it, but just wanted to update this saying that I actually really enjoyed this book. I think because I read it quite a while after I finished the Alex Rider series, I didn't go into this book expecting it to be exactly like that. And I th [...]



    2. I have to say that it's difficult to rate this book. I averaged the two ratings I would have given it and ended up with three stars. If it were a stand-alone novel, I would have given it 4, maybe 4.5 stars. It was interesting to find out how an innocent boy of fourteen could end up becoming one of the world's deadliest assassins. However, this is supposed to be a part of the Alex Rider series, and in that respect, I would have only given it two stars: it simply doesn't fit in with the background [...]


    3. Absolutely brilliant - and a must- read for every Alex Rider fan! I had never expected to hear from Alex Rider again - so discovering this book was really an exciting surprise. Having enjoyed the entire series, my expectations were high but I wasn't disappointed. I basically read it in one go. It was fascinating to discover the secret life of Alex Rider's biggest enemy, the Scorpia assassin Yassen Gregorovich. Very clever idea and brilliantly executed. I had actually wondered while reading the A [...]


    4. This book was everything and more! I absolutely love the Alex Rider series and although I can't really say it's because it was 'my childhood series' (because I started reading them at 13 years old and finished at 15 last year) they are as close as it gets to that. Therefore I have such a strong attachment to this series and these characters and strangely as this is a companion novel following a very minor character from the Alex Rider series, who definitely is not a hero within that series, I fo [...]


    5. Cover Blurb: Yes or No? Yeah, there's a character impersonator in the background, but he's not terribly noticeable, so it doesn't bother me as much. I liked the old Alex Rider covers better; they weren't as busy. But Russian Roulette definitely screams action and excitement, and it catches my interest.Characters: Yassen Gregorovich has always been my absolute favorite character in this entire series. Not exactly a villain, he always treated his assassinations as just a job; there was nothing per [...]


    6. The Alex Rider novels have always fascinated me with their pulpy thriller writing. It's much like reading Matthew Reilly (without the expletives and really high-stakes escapes) and I definitely believe there is a place for this type of fiction in the market. Some may look at it and go: 'does it teach anything? Does it uplift at all?' Interestingly, this is a book that certainly for all the thrill and racing plot, does have a moral lesson. It is a book about good and evil being existent in the ch [...]


    7. Could you sympathise with a cold-blooded killer?What if that cold-blooded killer was planning to assassinate a 14 year-old boy?And what if that 14 year-old boy was Alex Rider, one of the best-loved heroes of children’s literature?What’s impressive about Anthony Horowitz’s new book, ‘Russian Roulette’, is that, for me, the answer to all those questions is yes. Horowitz has created a powerful and original story in which the bad guy is not only the ‘hero’, but also someone you wish yo [...]


    8. This is a book that has been rumored that would have been made instead of 'Snakehead' but then fans demanded for the series to continue.Finally, it is coming, the book about the back of my favorite character in the Alex Rider seriesWhen announced, at first I was all Because through the entire series I was thinking[image error]Because when(view spoiler)[Yassen died (hide spoiler)]is was like["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]& [...]


    9. Amazing book. It's been awhile since I fangirled over Alex Rider. This book brings back so much. I was sad to let Alex go then, and I'm so glad there's this book now.I can't believe I can actually sympathize with a contract killer, but Anthony Horowitz built Yassen so well. I loved his story. Every single page is interesting and added to Yassen's character. His childhood torn apart, his best friend (view spoiler)[Leo dead (hide spoiler)] , and how he had nothing by then but kept going, the three [...]


    10. Alex Rider is a series of action-packed spy novels about a 14 year old boy who works for the British Secret Service. Russian Roulette is the latest in the series, but as a prequel, it takes place before the previous nine books, and so the reader won’t be too confused reading them out of sequence.This book is told as a series of diary entries from the perspective of Yassen Gregoravich – the villainous Russian assassin who has threatened Alex Rider throughout the series. This book details Yass [...]


    11. I wasn't sure how Horowitz was going too about a prequel Alex Rider, but now it all makes senseough I won't give anything away. He has blended the lives together seamlessly, allowing fans to see inside the world of Scorpia, the mind of Yassen Gregorovich and the paternal past of the epically important Alex. Yup it is definitely worth the read for anyone who enjoyed the books.


    12. I would like to apologise for the ridiculously long time it took me to read this. It is in no way a reflection of how much I enjoyed it because damn, this book was good.I'm not going to lie, I didn't realise this was a prequel until I actually started reading it. Usually I intensively study a blurb before I read the actual book, but in this case I didn't bother since either way I was going to read it - it's Alex Rider so, obviously. So yeah, I was pretty surprised when it was suddenly in first p [...]


    13. I LOVE THIS BOOK.I am maybe just in love with Yassen but shh.This is technically book 10 in the Alex Rider series, although it follows the story of Yassen Gregorovich - an assassin who works for Scorpia.The style is slightly different from the rest of the series as most of it is written in first person instead of third person, but it's still a really enjoyable read!Spoilers:(view spoiler)[I have SO MANY FEELINGS about Yassen Gregorovich. Here is this kid, who loses not only his entire family but [...]


    14. This is book number 10 in the Alex Rider series but in actuality it recounts events which happen before the series even begins. This is the story of one of the bad guys from Alex's adventures, his name is Yassen Gregorovitch. Everyone knows the story of Alex and how he was badgered into becoming a spy, but no one knows how Yassen ended up in his line of work - a hired killer - and their stories are not too far apart from one another.I love the Alex Rider books, I think that they are a great seri [...]


    15. About 2010, there was a rumor that another Alex Rider book would come out, entitled Yassen, Teenage Assassin. I don't know why this took so long, but it was definitely worth the wait! If this review seems vague, it's because I don't want to spoil the clever details!When Yasha Gregorovich is 14, his entire village is destroyed after an explosion at the chemical plant where his parents both worked. He manages to get away from the town and the soldiers with his best friend, but Yasha has to make hi [...]


    16. The novel Alex Rider,' Russian Roulette' by Anthony Horowitz is about a boy called Yassen Gregorovich who lives in Russia and his life story. It tells the reader about his hard childhood and how he then later on became an infamous assassin and attempts to kill Alex RiderThe main character in this novel is Yassen Gregorovich. He is characterized physically as a very active, adventurous and fit type of person, however he can be very caring about others. For example he did not want himself to take [...]


    17. This one let me down, I think it's because I was comparing it to the Alex Rider books, but it should be classed on its own because it is so different. I was waiting for something exciting and action-y to happen, the most I could say was the Russian Roulette between Yassen and Sharvovsky. The explosion at his house and in the jungle with Alex's father, specking about that I don't know if I wasn't concentrating when I read that part, but I wanted more clarification on the relationship between Yass [...]


    18. I read the Alex Rider books when they were first released, but never finished the series. Reading this has made me want to return to them! Well written and full of action, you really end up feeling for Gregoravich and understand how he ended up as Alex Rider's enemy. A must read for fans of the series!

    20. Russian Roulette Alex RiderBy Anthony Horowitz This book is a non-fiction book. The genre of this book it realistic fiction and action. I could see this book being real. The reason I chose to read this book is because it is the final book of the Alex rider series. Even though it is the last book it is more of a side story about one of the other characters life. This book is about a young boy names Yasha or Yassen. He lives in a small town called Estrov in Russia. There is a “pesticide” facto [...]


    21. Plot:Russian Roulette is a action-packed book about an assassin. The story takes you through the diaries of the main character. The main character in Russian Roulette is, Yasha Gregorovich. Yasha's homeland is in Estrov, Russia and that is where his family lives. In the beginning of the book, Yasha is living with his parents, and his grandmother. His best friend was Leo Tretyakov. In Estrov, there was a chemical plant that made chemical weapons for war. At the plant, Yasha's parents revolted and [...]


    22. 3.5This was a pretty cool installment to the Alex Rider espionage/thriller series, though I thought the plot in this novel was duller than the other Alex Rider books, and I was surprised to find that Yassen is a much less interesting main character than Alex.I used to think of Yassen Gregorovich as an intriguing, cold-hearted assassin, with a mysterious past, but now that I've read through his eyes, he seems quite dull compared to Alex. I'm not sure what it is, but there's just something so comp [...]


    23. Before I started the series I knew that I wanted to read this book most and after finishing reading it I realised that I was right and I have to say that I enjoyed this one most. Not only did I enjoy it but I actually had tears in my eyes at one specific pointThis is the story of the Russian assassin in the Alex rider books. Yassen Gregorvich, whose name is actually Yasha (which as a Russian I can tell you that it's not actually a full name but only a nickname that comes from the name Yakov but [...]


    24. I read this mainly because one of my Teen Boys'Book Groups wanted to read it, so I wasn't particularly expecting it to appeal to me that much (I'm more of goth romance kind of girl, if I'm honest). But it was a very readable story and, being a prequal to Stormbreaker, you didn't need to have any previous series knowledge to appreciate it. To sum it up, without the use of any spoilers, it's the story of how a young teenage Russian boy is forced into a position where he has to train as an internat [...]


    25. The book "Russian Roulette" by Anthony Horowitz is an outstanding book. As a person who dislikes reading, I was surprised that I could actually find a book I like. It keeps your attention and makes you wonder whats going to happen next. It was a very amusing book.The story starts in a town called Estrov, a rural farm community, where a pesticide/fertilizer factory goes haywire and a virus breaks out. Turns out they were assigned to produce a much more lethal strain of Anthrax for use as a biolog [...]

    27. It is great to see an author add to a successful series because he has another story to tell and not just to make some extra cash. Russian Roulette is a prequel of sorts to the Alex Rider series and tells the story of Yassen Gregorovich, explaining how he became the deadly assassin readers know him as. What is perhaps most fascinating about this book is how Horowitz manages to write a book where you feel empathy for a contract killer. It seems impossible yet it happens nonetheless. We learn how [...]
