Book Review

Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz: a review

This is a great book to read. It is full of action, and thrills. It is written by Anthony Horowitz. It has a total of 338 pages and you can buy it at book shops for only £7.99! It is also available as an eBook.

This is the first of a series of 10 books. It tells you a bit about the author himself and even the Guardian themselves says it is “explosive thrilling action-packed – meet Alex Rider”!

The book is all about a boy who finds out his uncle worked for MI6, who then ends up working for MI6 as they recognise his potential. He’s instantly given a secret mission with no choice to do it or not and gadgets (like James Bond!) and a quad bike with his first mission. But as the teenage spy soon finds out he’s put himself in mortal danger.

It is quite a long book and takes a while to get into reading it but once you start reading it properly it’s a really good book. Some parts are a bit wordy. The writing on the pages isn’t too small as well which makes it good if you have additional needs or disabilities or get spaced out.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes action, thriller, spy books as it is based around this. It is a brilliant book but takes a while to get into. Enjoy!
