"So exciting that at times you forget to breathe." (The Independent on Sunday)
From beginning to end this book kept me wanting more by the second. Anthony Horowitz makes it impossible to walk away from! The plot was flawless - so many unexpected twists - and the character's dialogue witty! The narration was spectacular.This is definitely one of my favourite reads; would 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a book with an intelligently thought out, yet simplistic, plot. Amazing.
I would cast someone who didn't ham up a 'flied lice' type of offensive accent for an Asian character. In such situations a neutral accent should be effected. This has been the case with black characters in previous Alex Rider books. There is no need and is awful.
