This review is from: Eagle Strike (Alex Rider) (Paperback)
My brother took all of the Alex Rider books on holiday to France, and I barely glanced at them, thinking they were about boys and shoot-ups. It was only when my own supply of books ran out that I looked at the blurb of the first one, Stormbreaker, and after lying on the beach for a couple of hours I finished it and wanted more. Eagle Strike is by far the best, where young Alex is once again forced by the MI6 to go on another mission. Anthony Horowitz uses wit, action and a brilliant plot to write a fabulous book, involving the kidnap of Alex's friend, Sabine Pleasure, a mad celebrity who decides that killing people is the answer and a young hero who saves the world.
