Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz: A book review

Summary: “They said his uncle Ian died in a car accident. Alex Rider knows that’s a lie, and the bullet holes in his uncle’s car confirm the truth. But nothing can prepare him for the news that the uncle he always thought he knew was really a spy for Britain’s top-secret intelligence agency. Enlisted to find his uncle’s killers and complete Ian’s final mission, Alex suddenly finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse, with no way out.”

 

I liked the book, I realized that I really like spy books. This reminded me of my favorite TV series, Chuck! And I didn’t watch the movie of this so I guess it’s better because they did a different version. I love the action and adventure in this book that I remembered the Stephanie series. Of course, they are much different. I was amused by the reason of the antagonist, Herod, in killing the children and I almost felt like it was so childish. He wanted to kill every child in Britain through a virus from the Stormbreaker because he wanted to take revenge from those people who bullied him at school when he was a student. I concluded that this book wanted to imply to those young readers that its wrong to bully someone and everyone should stop it at school. I guess its one of the moral lessons of it. 🙂
