    Q You re never too young to die c Q Killing is for grown ups and you re still a child c I have been reading it, in minuscule installments, since when the universe was still young and hot and the dinosaurs were frisky yet At least it feels so I have no idea why I kept coming back for A glutton for cheese, maybe This is cheesy enough to need a cheese cutting wire I was amazed to actually see it provided in the plot Very thoughtful on the part of the author, cheers Q It was only the glint of the sun and the sight of the grass slicing itself in half that revealed the horrible truth The two cyclists had stretched a length of cheese wire between them Alex threw himself headfirst, flat on his stomach The chee...

    I could read this book over and over again I grew up with a fascination with spies, most likely triggered by the amazingly entertaining TV show Totally Spies I used to watch repeatedly with my brother I still remember asking my mother, with hearts in the place of eyes, Do spies really exist You see, I thought being a spy was the coolest profession one could have I shouldn t have been discouraged by my mom s reply, but because I am who I am, my heart immediately deflated when she said, They certainly do, but it s very dangerous to be a spy If she hadn t known me so well, she would have lied and told me they do not, in fact, exist, because who really encourages their children to choose secrets, violence and murder instead of the quiet office job But she knew I was reasonable, even at the age of eight Maybe this is why I love Alex Rider so much He knows the danger he is in Actually, he refuses the mission at first He wants to live a tranquil, normal life Why should he put himself at risk and end up killed like his uncle Of course, in the end, he doesn t really have a choice any In the book world, we would totally match.But he s also daring He is a reasonable person, but one who does not hesitate to put himself in danger...

    I read this book because it is so popular with my students I can see the appeal espionage, a kid caught in everyone else s plans, having to take care of himself while saving the world Action, adventure, violence The boys eat this stuff up I just wish Horowitz had written it with his readers in mind as the young, impressionable audience that they are I hate all the label dropping Do we need to know that our character wears Nike and Gap Absolutely not Why feed into this consumerist crap, especially for a young audience that is already so consumed with having to have what is cool And the car details Give me a break Most of the kids and teens reading this have no clue what the differences between engines are And then there is Alex himself, who appears to me to be an arrogant, showboating, hotshot who thinks he can do anything on his own Such a bad role model This book left me very conflicted as a children s librarian My elementary students like the books I think the first one I cannot testify for the rest of the series as I haven t read them is full of all the things that I do not want to promote in the collection for which I am responsible violence, consumerism, and a disrespectful protagonist They get enough of this is every other form of ...

    Being a teenage spy is something I ve never experienced, but Stormbreaker really makes me feel like I have This book is about a boy named Alex Rider, who has been a regular boy all his life until he is called by M 16, the British secret service, to be on a secret mission to investigate a computer called the Stormbreaker This book is full of good guys, bad guys, and of course, its full of suspense, adventure, and action The person in this book that really draws you in is Harold Sayle, the inventor of the supercomputer the Stormbreaker That computer makes M 16 very suspicious because hes sending one Stormbreaker to every school in England so they send Alex under cover to be the first kid to try the Stormbreaker But all hes really doing is looking for anything suspicious Many of the characters in this book are pretending to b nice but really be mean, or being generous but really trying to take over the world T...

    You know how there are those books that you see everywhere, in every library, in every bookstore, and then one day you just break down and pick it up This is one of those books.And I should have just left it.The first few pages were fine I was all prepared to get sucked into this book I mean, I d seen it EVERYWHERE, after all It had to be good, right It happened with the Pendragon books, it ll happen here too, yeah And then everything after those pages was complete nonsense I was immediately disenchanted But before I go into large scale issues, I d like to mention that these are the paragraphs that immediately set me against this book We can t just send in another agent He ll be expecting a replacement Somehow we have to trick him We have to send someone in who won t be noticed Someone who can look around and report back without being seen We were considering sending down a woman She might be able to slip in as a cleaner or a kitchen helper I kid you not, this is actually in the book The whole novel had this sexist voice, and the worst of it is that this is set in the current time Really She can slip in as a cleaner or a kitchen helper Also,...

    Well, the writing in this book is actually not bad The problem here for me is sort of 2 pronged though one of the prongs may be mufti pointed First, this book is very young in some ways With this plot it has to be, and that s the other problem.I just couldn t get my head around a 14 year old super spy I know, I know I like Harry Potter and I liked the Ranger s Apprentice books as well as other books with young heroes But those are set in fantasy universes where magic exists and so on If I can accept wizards then a wizarding school isn t a stretch.and lets face it, they were kids in school The Ranger s Apprentice was, an apprentice Here we get a story line that will require a much beefy set of suspension of belief muscles The idea of MI6 recruiting a 14 year old is just a bit much for me To be honest though as I said below in a conversation, when I was ...

    For years, I have been hearing shouts, whispers, and raves about Alex Rider I m so happy to have finally met him Stormbreaker is book one in Anthony Horowitz s action packed series Fourteen year old, Alex Rider stumbles into the spying world after the death of his uncle But soon realizes he s good at the spying game Running, diving, and snooping around The action is nonstop I liked how Alex s mind worked he was observant, calm, and smart One of my favorite parts was the way he talked himself down from panic he couldn t make an enemy of his imagination The mission, gadgets, and characters pulled me right in Both Alex and the big bad guys especially Mr Grin made me smile and cheer And the humor mixed into the adrenaline had me grinning ear to ear Whoever these people were, they had tried to run him down, to cut him in half, and to incin...

    My son loved this book and so I promised to read it too To be honest, it was not my cup of tea, but I ll review it from my kid s point of view This is the first of 10 novels about the protagonist Alex Rider who becomes unwittingly a secret agent after his father is killed It is a nice fantasy with plenty of spy craft and exciting chase scenes and a pretty evil villain My kid loved the action and suspense at the end of each volume and wanted me to give it 5 stars I ll appease him by giving it 4 because I think that perhaps, in a few years, he will be able to read the Smiley books or the James Bond ones and see how real spy stories are written Nonetheless, I can recommend ...
