Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz
A review by Cody Chace
The well known and utterly astounding Alex Rider series are a multiple of diverse, extraordinary adventures of a fourteen year old English boy by the name of Alex Rider who just happens to be a member of FBI secret service across the world. Normally when someone would pick up this particular book being, Eagle Strike, they would automatically assume that the action sequences are impossible, but not in this book the action is real. Although this is a fictional book many kids especially around the age of 14 or 15 are very intrigued at action of a character their own age, as was I. Every book of the series takes place in a different setting and each mission Alex Rider takes on a different enemy. In Eagle Strike he takes on several enemies including, Yassen Gregorovich who nearly kills Alex numerous times. I feel as though what Alex does is very real and in reality anyone would be able to pull them if they were in such a predicament they would be able to accomplish it with a little hard work and determination. The funny aspects of these books are that all of his enemies seriously underestimate his abilities due to his age and size but, when he defeats them with ease they are mistaken. As I had mentioned before Alex Rider is a member of the FBI and even though his parents who were the best known spies in the world were killed by his enemies and now he has to avenge their death by any means necessary.
