Stormbreaker

by Anthony Horowitz

‘Alex Rider’ series Book #1 – Young Adult

They told him his uncle died in a car accident. Fourteen-year-old Alex knows that’s a lie, and the bullet holes in his uncle’s windshield confirm his suspicions. But nothing prepares him for the news that the uncle he always thought he knew was really a spy for MI6 – Britain’s top secret intelligence agency. Recruited to find his uncle’s killers and complete his final mission, Alex suddenly finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Review: Started and Finished Saturday, February 24th, 2007. For a book that supposed to cater to 9-14 year-olds, I have to admit, I liked it!

The kid was smart with a level head on his shoulders, and acted on instincts that most adults would use. The character, a 14-year-old kid, was actually pretty believable. I might have done the same in his shoes. The action was great –  kept you glued to the page until you got to the end ad thought: Did it have to stop there? The perfect answer is no obviously – there are more books to this series, LOL! I’m glad. I think I may just read Book #2, Point Blanc, when Austin (my nephew) is done with it. Kind of like James Bond, but he’s a kid. I’m glad Austin liked it as well.
