Mr Horowitz you've done it again!!!,
This review is from: Skeleton Key (Alex Rider) (Paperback)
Once again Mr Horowitz has written a "kids" book that literally blows many so called "Adult" writers out of the water.
I have recently been reading nothing but childrens books because frankly i believe the standard of writing far better, the imagination far greater and the editing tighter. 'Sophies World' 'Mortal Engines' and of course 'The Dark Materials trilogy' have all been excellent reading for all ages.
Anthony Horowitz has surpassed the two previous Alex Rider books in terms of entertainment as they just keep getting better. Very witty (and always with a knowing wink) and suitable for all ages, with action and explosions for youngsters and also some lovely 'in-jokes' for adults.
My only gripe is that as Mr Horowitz is normally so good at 'play on word' titles (Point Blanc, French Confection and my fave The Falcons Malteaser) is still feel it should have been called 'Skeleton Quay'...
