When his guardian dies in suspicious circumstances, 14-year-old Alex Rider finds his world turned upside down. Forcibly recruited into MI6, Alex has to take part in gruelling SAS training exercises. Then, armed with his own special set of secret gadgets, he's off on his first mission to Cornwall, where Middle-Eastern multi-billionaire Herod Sayle is producing his state-of-the-art Stormbreaker computers - but there's more to Sayle than meets the eye....

Alex Rider is amazing ( or so I'm told)

I bought this for my son, he loves this series. He thinks Alex is amazing and he listened to this book from start to finish in one go and then listened to it again!

Awesome

This audio book made me buy the whole Alex Rider series. It's so exciting and I can't wait to see if Anthony Horowitz has written anymore books/series like this. My parents have even read the series.

a good start to a wonderful series

revisiting this book was like look at child photographs of a dear friend. I love the Alex Rider series but th1ey do get better as the series goes along. Here I can feel the beginnings of my beloved Alex and I can almost feel Anthony Hororwitz testing his strength as it were, trying to himself understand Alex so in later book he can fluidly and effortlessly write from the mindset if a 14 year old spy. The book itself is not brilliant passed and can at times be lack luster, but this book is the foundation in which Hororwitz's builds the complicated life of Alex and complex villains; each more serial and diabolical than the next. If love young adult fiction like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson but prefer when the stakes are higher like in hunger games or divergent then this is a must read but give it a chance and read the whole series.

Not for me

It wasn’t until I had already purchased this book I realised this book was aimed at a much younger audience then me.

Really gripping

This was a great story and I was gripped throughout. It's exciting to imagine Alex beginning his adventures and made me feel like I was a kid again. Brings back the days of the Famous Five!
