Not Just Nothing
Reader reviewed by EshInoBi
Skeleton key was exciting, book-round. Not that a book is round. But I was pleased to read that there was less boredom in this one then in the past 2 books. At first, all Alex Rider has to do is go to a country pretending to be a child of two other spies so that they won't be noticed. Good, I thought, but I was expecting more. You can't have "Just Nothing" with Alex Rider. And there was more. Alex discovers secrets about bombs, and has more adventure. The two other spies he is sent with, unfortunately, die, and as Alex Rider followed them to where they were, I was waiting to turn the next page so many times. He witnesses sharks, deaths, and many more. It gradually got slower, but it still had a lot of 'punch' in the last few pages of the book. This is a wonderful addition to the Alex Rider series.
