Alex Rider: Stormbreaker

When the doorbell rings at three in the morning, it’s never good news.

After his guardian dies in suspicious circumstances, fourteen-year-old Alex Rider finds his world turned upside down. Forcibly recruited into MI6 as its youngest ever spy, he is made to do gruelling SAS training exercises. Then, armed with an ingenious set of secret gadgets, he’s sent off to Cornwall to face his first adversary – Middle Eastern multi-billionaire Herod Sayle, creator of the space-age Stormbreaker computer. The computer is about to be given free to every school in the country, but there’s more to the gift than meets the eye. Because Stormbreaker holds a sinister surprise…

In Herod Sayle’s den, surrounded by enemies, Alex is in mortal danger. Will his first mission turn out to be his last?

    Alex Rider Stormbreaker is an exciting, absorbing book to read.The moment I read that Alex was a spy for MI5 I knew I was going to enjoy the book. As I read, I loved the book so much that I couldn’t stop reading it. I had fun reading the wonderful descriptions not only of the people but also of the cool vehicles. Reading it was a great experience and I have learnt a lot from it. The entire adventure of Alex and Herod Sayle and the way Alex finds out the truth of Sayle was amazing. The way Alex manages to escape is also unbelievable.Alex Rider Stormbreaker is a fantastic book and I would recommend it to anyone reading this.
