Reader's Reviews[]


Despite really enjoying the Alex Rider novels (I have read the first seven), I did not enjoy this book, as I found it boring. I am quite happy that the gadgets used by Alex Rider worked, and I don't desire information on how they worked. If you are really technically inclined, you might be interested, but otherwise it's not worth your time.
