By S Riaz HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Feb. 2015
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third Alex Rider book, following on from “Stormbreaker” and “Point Blanc,” and the two previous books are also available as graphic novels. This book sees Alex rider forced to go into hiding on Skeleton Key, an island near Cuba, where a Russian General called Sarov is hatching a plan to change the history of the world…

My son loves graphic novels and these books do remain faithful to the original storyline, plus the books have excellent artwork. Anything which encourages children to read is fantastic; so if your child is daunted by longer novels, then possibly graphic novels could be the way to get them interested in books. Of course, they should be enjoyed just for what they are – which is good and exciting reads, with lots of child appeal.

My 12 and 10 year old sons already have the first two Alex Rider graphic novels so I decided to buy this one to complete their collection. It arrived very fast and I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint either of them. They have read it many times already and can't put it down! It is very colourful and I'm told by my eldest that it's the best one so far!

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 28 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
This graphic novel adaptation of the Alex Ryder novel Skeleton Key is an excellent adventure story. I have not read any of the novels, but I am an avid comic-book reader, and found this at my local library. The story itself is excellently plotted, and the script and artwork are both excellent. The artwork is a bit too ‘cartoony’ for my usual tastes, but it somehow fits in perfectly with the feel of the story, and the Japanese artist-team’s style does seem to make it all look like a young person’s view of the world (and of James Bond films).

My son loved the CD of the story and althou he should be able to read the actual paperback...I spotted this comic style version & he really loved it! He is not keen to read 'long' books so this was a great compromise. He actually read it cover to cover!

Magnificent graphics and excellent text adaption form one of the best comic book novels of the last decade. My sons love it, and it has definitely encouraged 7-yr old to read the original novels themselves.

This one was as good as the two before it. I got my wish that they would do another graphic novel for Alex Rider, I just wish they do them all. My 7 yr old son loves them too. Good buy! ;)
