  • Lacks a voice

    I have enjoyed MAGPIE MURDERS and HOUSE OF SILK by Horowitz, so I decided to give this YA book a try. I was an English teacher, and I ended up skimming the book, since there is too much "telling, not showing". Obviously many people like the Alex Rider series since there are so many books--but he fails to capture the "voice" of a fourteen year old. That job is best done by Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series based on Greek Mythology, the Kane Chronicles centered on Egyptian myths, and my favorite, the Magnus Chase series focused on Norse Mythology.

    Well written as it gets going, completely implausible ending.

  • Stormbreaker

    Alex's uncle died in a car accident. Was that really what happened, though? He must uncover the truth about his uncle's past. Anthony Horowitz is an amazing author. He captures the story like taking a bite of the most delicious cupcake, only this time it's a book, not a cupcake. The only problem is that I feel like he wasn't capturing a real teenager's thoughts. It seemed that Alex was a 24 year old, not a 14 year old. Or maybe he's really mature for his age, I don't know. This was my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
