    " This book was very suspenseful. Great, quick read, though it is short and a little young. It was full of action, and twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Lewis | 2/12/2014

    " I loved the suspension of this book. but horowtiz wrote it in a style that would fit the context of younger readers. in turn his style of language was a little chalky. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison Chan | 1/28/2014

    " In my opinion, it started the Alex Rider series quite well even though it's totally not my favorite book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 1/23/2014

    " very thrilling and exciting!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Carr | 1/22/2014

    " My 11-year old son has been glued to this series for the last month and so I finally decided to see what all the hype was about...and it is lots of fun! The series is DEFINITELY written for a specific audience of pre-teen/teen boys but does a great job of being highly engaging, exciting, suspenseful, and knowing just what "buttons" to push to appeal to this hard to reach age group. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was surprised given my somewhat low expectations going into it. It was a quick, fun, exciting read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Kinsella | 1/21/2014

    " Not much in the way of existential angst, but that's unsurprising given the tween target market. otherwise it's above standard junior spy fare. "

    " Not really my cup of tea. Very much like Cherub (or Cherub is very much like Stormbreaker). I can see how it'd be a great book for boys. "
