I loved Stormbreaker. The beginning was a bit... strange, but beginnings are usually strange for me. This book was thrilling, and I loved venturing with Alex Rider. I didn't like how MI6 sort of "black-mailed" him to do what they wanted, but I have to admit, if they didn't, there would've been no fun for Alex.
This book begins with Alex receiving the news that his uncle, Ian Rider, died; but there was more. His uncle was working for them, as a spy, for a supposed computer for school children. After "black-mailing" Alex, he discovers, almost getting himself killed, that the stormbreakers (the computers) were not what everyone thought. And only he knew, until the end.
What could it possibly be? Join Alex Rider in this ride of a life time as a spy/secret agent for MI6! This book was absolutely wonderful!

Alex Rider is leading a "normal" life. His parents are dead, so he lives with his Uncle Ian and a caretaker named Jack (even though she is a girl). When his Uncle supposedly dies in a car crash, Alex goes to investigate, and instead of finding a crushed vehicle, there are bullet holes in the windshield. This begins a new part in Alex's life.

Alex is approached by MI6, England's intelligence agency and is asked (or rather blackmailed) to become a spy in place for his Uncle and complete his last mission. Although he is reluctant to relinquish his "normal" life, Alex relizes that he has been trained for this kind of work by his Uncle from birth in ways that Alex never suspected.

After being put into a grueling training program for adults, Alex goes into Sayle Enterprises. MI6 wants to investigate, because Herod Sayle supposedly just wants to give every school in the country a new, amazing Stormbreaker, a new type of computer that Sayle Enterprises makes. MI6 thinks that there's more to Sayle's proposal than meets the eye, so they send Alex in. Alex goes with only a few gadgets from Smithers (a very likeable inventor-of-gadgets) and his wits to keep himself alive.

This book is utterly fantastic. I loved every word of it! The story is so suspenseful and exciting, I just couldn't put it down. Stormbreaker is an awesome read that's for everybody. Every page is action packed and you'll warm up to the characters immediately!

Alex Rider, fourteen, is forcibly recruited into the MI6, after the death of his uncle and only living relative, Ian Rider. Ian Rider, astonishingly, was a spy, working for the MI6 under the cover of a bank manager.

Alex is sent on his first assignment, to investigate the computer businessman Herod Sayle. This millionaire is giving away to every school in Britain free "Stormbreaker" computers, but the MI6 thinks that there's more to the offer than that.

But Sayle Enterprises is not that easy to defeat, and whether their hiding anything or not, security measures are high. Alex must be careful, because if he induces any suspicion, his first assignment will become his last...

Thrilling and action-packed, this is a novel with scenes like a movie, and an ingenious plot that leads up until that last page with that very same question - will Alex survive?

This book is excellent; what had begun to feel repetitive by the end of the series is new and exciting here, and it works well.

Yes, its ridiculously improbable, and you'll be able to guess what'll happen because then Alex can use his gadgets, but this is fun. And that's the whole point of the series, really; sure, it'd never happen, but it's nice to dream.

Definitely worth a read, particularly as I hear they're making an Alex Rider film. Plus, there's a shed load of sequels to read if you find you like it!

This has got to be one of my absolute favorite series. I love the way Horowitz uses his knowledge and imagination to create such a plot. I love how he takes an adult job and ends up giving it to a kid, a very capable kid at that.
