The author use informal diction here mostly because of the reputation of the series and to help readers connect easier with the character Alex who is 14, which is about the young adults age. I suspended my disbelief about this unlikely premise, and enjoyed the action sequences and general mayhem.

To destroy the population of Africa would make Mccain a very rich man because he would be able to scam people out of their donations. Grabbing a rope hanging from a helicopter that is flying by when you are on a wobbly roof about to fall is hard enough.It is the exact poison that a man from Mississippi tried to sent to President Obama and a Congressman from Capital Hill recently. Tapi andainya genetik tumbuhan biasa yang kita lihat normal namun diubah menjadi bahan yang mematikan bayangkan sahaja apa kerosakan yang boleh terjadi.

It's so hard to believe to find out Alex is only just about to turn 15 after there being 7 other books and it's crazy to believe this storyline is only set over the course of a year, it just goes to show how much one 14 year old has gone through. There were eleven more books in the series - the latest, Never Say Die, was published in 2017 - and they are now being developed for TV.

Alex lives the roughest life and then just to add salt to the wound, people refuse to believe him because he's only fourteen. But a simple card game between them rapidly leads to a duel to the death - one that could result in the destruction of an entire country.

Alex Rider is a perfectly normal British teenager, except that he’s been unknowingly trained as a spy by his uncle, an agent of MI6 (the British equivalent of the CIA). Alex ends up winning the game, and twenty-five thousand pounds, but decides to donate all the money he wins to First Aid (which McCain's charity).I don't want Alex Rider to die but seriously a little less unbelievable stuff because this gets boring after some while. As the mission involves getting access to Straik's computer, one gadget is a memory stick disguised as an eraser; the other gadgets include two exploding gel pens, a diamond-edged knife disguised as a pencil sharpener, a CCTV camera jammer and communicator disguised as a pocket calculator, and a disguised swipe card that opens any door in conjunction with a reprogrammer built into a lead-lined pencil case.

It's usually played on long car journeys and keeps him and his 8yrs old brother happy and contented on the journeys. Alex doesn't want to carry out any more missions for MI6, but is forced to when a rogue journalist comes after him threatening to expose Alex and ruin any chance he has of a normal life. After all, Alex is my favorite teen spy, and the one that truly kicked off a lot of the action-packed series that have since jumped on board.He goes to a New Year's Eve party hosted by the rich businessman Desmond McCain, founder of the charity First Aid. It's just a fast, adrenaline charged experience with mindless action and feats that would bring Bruce Wayne to his knees. After the party, Desmond sends a sniper to blow one of the wheels off of the car where Alex, his girlfriend and her dad were and they get into a terrible accident. If it was written for older readers it would also have to deal with the effect on a fourteen year old boy of the traumatic events to which he is subjected.
