This book is about a young boy named Alex who is fourteen and was orphaned at a younger age. His uncle took care of him until he mysteriously died. Alex thought this was out of the ordinary and began to investigate. As Alex learned that his uncle's death was no accident. His uncle's former employers told Alex that his uncle was a spy. Alex was then unwillingly trained to be a spy, and he was taught to use gadgets, and tactics to survive in bad circumstances. Alex goes through trials and tribulations trying to figure out what happened to his uncle, his secret life, and also trying to survive his newfound career of being a spy. I recommend this book to young boys who love action and adventure books.

Exciting book full of action, suspense, and adrenaline; Alex a 14 year old boy who lives normally until he finds out that his uncle died in a car accident. After investigating his uncle vehicle and escaping a near death experience at the junk yard; Alex Rider discovers that his uncle was a MI6 spy working for the English government, now he will be up to him to break the terrorist plan that he uncle tried to stop. This book is really entertaining, the reading is easy due to the intensity of events that surround Alex, who is not an expert in espionage, but will do everything to protect the security of his country.
