Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing It is a fun to read book where you feel like your in the book as well, just on how it was written. It's a great book for young teens because it has some nice action within the book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Page Turner As the first in the Alex Rider series, it was a bit if a dissapointment. However, Mr. Horowitz still gave a page turning read, worthy of a place in the Rider series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really Good Really Good book but wouldnt read again. lots of action but some action could have been more intense. Easy to follow if you want a book similar to this book i found the 39 clues series pretty similar. Both books really hard to put down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Novel Hovel say, "Great Younger Teen Book!" Alex Rider thought his Uncle and guardian was a banker who traveled a lot. Little did he know that after his Uncle is killed he learns that he was really an MI6 spy. After finding out the truth Alex is recruited by MI6 to complete his Uncle's final mission. Alex suddenly finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse, with no way out. Although I technically wouldn't classify this book as Young Adult fiction I thought I would review it anyways. My brother is 13 and going into grade 8 where they have to start writing book reports and what not. Knowing that my brother is a jocky little boy I knew the likelihood of him completing one of these successfully would be slim. So... I went on a hunt for a book that I thought he might enjoy. Little did I know that after reading this book on a whim I would enjoy quite a bit too. The novel is fool of twists and suspense not to mention cool spy gadgets. There was even a movie made based on it. Overall, I enjoyed this book and would especially recommend it to slightly younger readers. http://thenovelhovel.blogspot.com/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good This was a very good book. It captures the reader instantly and sends them on an incredible journey. The characters come to life very well and the plot is good. You find yourself cheering for the good guy throughout the book. After I read it, I felt a strong connection between the characters and I couldn't wait to read the second book. If you liked this book, be sure to check out the rest of the stories. The suspense builds up with each novel. I particularly enjoyed Scorpia, the fifth one. It was the best book from this series without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-read!!! A James Bond kind of story, Stormbreaker is a spy novel that packs a punch as it tells a story of deceit, danger and death. When I read the beginning of the book I felt that it was childish and a spot dull, but once I reached the middle of the book I was captivated with the wit and antics of the main character Alex Rider. This book is a definite read and also read all of the series of Alex Rider. Another thing to look out for is the movie coming out this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Best in tge Series So far, out of the three books I've read from the Alex Rider series, this one has been by far the most enjoyable. I found it hard to go to sleep at night, always wondering what's going to happen next! This novel seems to sum up what Alex is all about (following in his uncle's footsteps), as he always finds places his uncle has been first, The writing in this book is so well done you almost forget the (relatively) cheesy young James Bond set up. All in all, this is a series I'd like to see more of. Anthony Horowitz is a great writer, and all of his books reflect that perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stormbreaker: A Phenomenon Anthony Horowitz delivers a stunning blow with this novel. Readers will become breathless and find themselves breathing a sigh of relief as Alex Rider overcomes troubles and foes. But after relief comes more gut-clenching action. With amazing battles and unforgettable characters, STORMBREAKER is a must-read. With an incredibly exciting climax and great ending, this is one rollercoaster of a book you do not want to miss.
