Author-Anthony Harrowitz Date/year published-2001 Type Of Book-Fiction By Jonathan Sanchez
The time period for this book is in the year 2000. It mostly takes place at Sayle Enterprises. They book takes place in London. Sayle’s mansion/enterprise is a big house with a big garden and a lot of secrets. Alex also lives in a mansion with his guardian, Jake. The house is big with a door that is always locked and two floors.
Alex Rider- He has blonde hair and is very muscular for his age. He is brave because he jumped of a building to get to an office and bold because he is not afraid of anything. He can also be described as gutsy because he takes a lot of risks like he jumped of an airplane to get to a museum. He is Ian Rider’s grandson. Herrod Sayle- He is bald and small. Sayle is soulless because he was going to kill a lot of school children with the small-pox infected Stormbreakers he created. He is cruel because he was going to shoot Alex on top of a building. Sayle is also malicious because he wanted to hurt Alex for ruining his plans. Alan Blunt- He is head of M16, a spy organization. He wears round glasses and is old with a little bit of hair on his head. He is honest because he tells Alex mostly everything. He can sometimes be enigmatic because he does things out of nowhere and it is hard to understand him. He is also stern because he is very serious.
Alex is recruited by Alan Blunt, who is head of M16. He needs to stop Sayle from releasing his Stormbreakers. Alex meets his uncle's killer, Yassen Gregorvitch.
Alex stops Sayle in time and Sayle dies because Yassen shot him in the chest twice. Even though Yassen saves Alex, Alex doesn’t forgive him and will still be going after him.
I think that this book was great because it had a lot of action. The reason I liked it was because it is about a 13 year-old boy who is recruited to be a spy. If you like books about spies, then I recommend this book.
