Share via Email Stormbreaker is the very first novel in the Alex Rider series, a collection of books that left the imagination of my ten year old wannabe-spy self reeling for hours. In the pages of Stormbreaker we learn of seemingly ordinary fourteen-year-old Alex Rider, whose life becomes incredibly extraordinary, and considerably more dangerous, after the suspicious death of his uncle.
The plot is filled with action, adventure, and deceit. It is about Alex Rider, a young fourteen year old boy, is dragged into the dark world of spies and espionage when his uncle, who happened to be a MI6 agent, is murdered.
The plot is very mysterious, leaving cryptic clues everywhere. You will try to guess what happens next, but usually you will be wrong because the plot is very intelligent and unpredictable. It is filled with lots of suspense.
The book does contain some violent scenes like Alex shooting a few people, a woman who is shocked to death by a giant jellyfish, and Alex crashing a plane. The scenes do not contain very graphic descriptions, though. Alex is very similar to James Bond, like the teenage version of him.
He is always has witty comebacks, ninja fighting skills, lots of endurance, and a good heart. Although it is such a great thriller book, it contains some bad points too.
For example, it drops a lot of labels throughout the book. Since this book is for children and teens, I don't like how it says that Alex wears Nike and Gap clothing, ect.
It is a bit annoying.
Also, the characters are not very developed. They only really have one trait and everything they do revolves around the trait. Alex is also not very human. He knows many different languages, has a black belt in Karate, completed MI6 training which usually takes six months according to the book in seven days, has superhuman strength and speed, and is incredibly intelligent.
This makes him pretty much flawless, and I think that makes some parts of the book confusing and it is slightly annoying. Overall, this would be a fun and exciting book for younger readers, but it would not appeal as much to more mature readers.Alex Rider stormbreaker book report The story Alex Rider: Stormbreaker has alot of characters in it so lets start with the main characters.
