Rider, Alex Rider

Written By: Gary on February 14, 2005 6 Comments

So I’ve started reading these books Stormbreaker, Point Blank and Skeleton Key.

Alex Rider, who as all good kid characters happen to be is an orphan, ends up being a junior spy for MI-6 (spy group in London). It’s a kid’s book, so you need a little suspension of disbelief, but it’s really well done. It’s even educational at times (I learned a bit about the breakup of Russia). He even gets some neat spy gizmos to carry around (no guns). The books do build on each other so be sure to read them in order (Stormbreaker is the first). Also to keep in mind is that I think each book has been better than the previous one, so if you only like the first one a little, give the next one a chance. The author’s name is Anthony Horowitz (I just realized I left that out, March 18th, 2005)

    I really like the Alex Rider books too. I’ve read them all so far and I can’t wait to read Scorpia.

    I love young adult books; read them all the time. Just finished listening to some Tamora Pierce trilogy from Audible.com on my iPod. There’s something reassuring and good about a YA book – sometimes you enjoy a lack of sex and violence in your fiction!

    Alex Rider and Harry Potter

    So I’ve always thought there were connections between Alex Rider and Harry Potter. Young English boys who are orphans and get to go on the adventure of a lifetime. Harry gets to be a wizard and Alex gets to be a secret agent. Both had father’s in the business but didn’t get to know them (or all the secrets). Plus they’re always getting injured…
