My son loves the Alex Rider books but said this one was the scariest so far. He still read it and loved it though! Great for 11+ readers and particularly getting boys to read. Just be sure to check the content if your kids are a bit on the nervous side as these books do involve a "james bond" style character getting into dangerous situations.

When i first read stormbreaker i read it in about half a day, i was addicted, i couldn't stop reading. When i finished i thought to myself that i probably wouldnt be gripped like that by a book in a long time to come. The next day, i bought Point Blanc and i found myself very mistaken. Point Blanc gripped me like a vice and i highly recommend it.
The book starts 2 weeks after Alex's first mission and to his surprise, M16 need him again, this time he is to go under cover to Point Blanc academy, an isolated bording school for rich rebel boys in the french Alps, to investigate two "accidental" deaths of rich men, both of whos son goes to Point Blanc academy. But can Alex figure out what's going on before it's too late?
Point Blanc is an excelent book that leaves you hanging and waiting for Alex's third adventure...

Format: Hardcover
In this book, the MI6 convinces Alex to help them again. Alex pretends to be the son of a very rich man named Sir David Friend, completely changing his appearance and attending a school called Point Blanc. The school is meant for misbehaved boys or problem children whose parents have the money. The deaths of two men are suspicious to the MI6, so it is Alex's job to investigate whether the deaths and the school are related. Strangely, the boys seem very different from normal kids, but they seem to have the same personalities and even look very slightly alike. If you liked Stormbreaker, you'll definitely like Point Blank, because it is filled with adventure and danger!

I loved the way how Anthony Horowitz built it up and described how Alex Rider was feeling when he went back to Point Blanc Academy to get James and the others. Nothing could beat classic spy books. I think this book would be great experience for people who like adventure and action genres in one book.
BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE!!!!!!!

Point Blanc is the second is the alex rider series and it is as just as good as the first one if not better. The book is well written and it is full of suspense, drama and of course, loadz spy stuff.
Alex Rider, tennage spy, is back and better than ever before. Two important people are killed in suspsious circumstances and they have one thing in common, their sons both go to Point Blanc. Point Blanc is a school set in the French Alps for boys to learn how to be gentlmen. To find out what is going out there, Alex poses as a rich man's son. Alex finds both friends and foes there, but what is really going on?
Point Blanc is a must read. It is thrilling and the plot is very good.. The book is well written and well put across.
I have read the entire series of Alex Rider and hope that Anthony Horowitz will write another one. They are very good. If you are an Alex Rider fan then READ THIS BOOK. IF you just want something to read then READ IT !!
Have fun reading!!

Format: Paperback
Super spy Alex Rider is back in the great book Point Blanc.
Alex is a spy for Alan Blunt (Head of special operations, MI6). Michael Roscoe has just died and so has Ivanov, both are super rich and both sons go to the boys finishing school called Point Blanc. Alex is to go to this school as Alex Friend son of Sir Friend who owns supermarkets. While at the school he makes a friend and suddenly he changes from a lazy boy to a work-loving boy.
Anthony Horowitz has done very well with writing this action packed and exciting book. My favourite part is when Alex escapes and then comes back with a SAS unit to rescue the boys held hostage in the school.
My favourite character is Wolf (this is his code name) who is the leader of the SAS unit, he is tactical but also a very good soldier.
I recommend this book to 7-14 year olds who like action and detective books

The lonely private school, Point Blanc, is not all it seems, as Alex Rider will soon find out...
I tried not to like him, I really did, but I couldn't help it.
Alex is such a cool character. He's determined, adventurous, brave, funny and extremely reckless- the perfect hero, and at just 14! I liked the way he dealed with Fiona at the end of his stay at her house. She had it coming, hehe...
Anthony Horowitz is THE best author when it comes to action and adventure stories, and Point Blanc just proves this once again. The book is loaded with danger and excitement, but....it ends on a cliff hanger! Dun dun DUN!! When's the next one coming out, Anthony?

I couldn't believe the quality of this teenage spy book. Alex Rider is a teenage spy working for MI6. He has to go into the French Alps to find out info about the two - accidentall - deaths. All he has got is a fake identity and a few excellent gadgets supplied by MI6. The best bit, by far, is the one where he gets all the MI6 troops with him to take down Point Blanc Academy. In the end - he saves the hostages lives, kills the bad guys and saves the day. Amazing.
