Stormbreaker (Alex Rider Adventures) by Anthony Horowitz
Stormbreaker (Alex Rider Adventures)

ntsherburne, March 23, 2010

My 11 year old son asked me to bring back Alex Rider books when I was visiting Powell's Books for the first time. We live in the east, and he was having trouble finding the books at our library. They're just that popular! In 2 1/2 weeks he read the first seven books in the Alex Rider series; that's nearly 2,400 pgs. I guess you could say he's hooked!
Alex uses all sorts of gadgets, and his own version of problem solving to get himself out of one dangerous situation after another. Vinny says, "just a minute Mom, we're busy saving the world," so often when I am trying to get his attention. He just can't put these books down. Be prepared to be reading lots of great spy stories when you start with Stormbreaker!
