Great Story with excellent narration!

Although far-fetched at times Alex Ryder stories always make for compulsive listening especially when read this well. Very enjoyable family entertainment indeed!

Certain death

How many times does one 14year old escape certain death in one book?I enjoyed it although the repetitive drama became a bit tedious.
My granddaughter has read and enjoyed the whole series. That's a recommendation.

Awesome book

Anthony Horowitz has done it again. This has been the best book so far in the series and I can't wait for the next one
