I know it's a classic, but I hadn't gotten around to it until a couple of days ago. I had the luck to get gifted Call for the Dead as a Christmas present too, so the events of that book which impacted Spy I had fresh in my mind. Overall, I'd say it was excellent. That moment you have when you realize you're experiencing something incredible for the first time? That happened. I haven't dug into the Karla Triology yet. I suppose I'm worried it won't be as good coming right off something as good Spy.
