Anthony’s Horowitz Alex Rider books are very adventurous and action packed. All of them are quite similar because he gets up to all sorts of trouble. For example, stopping missiles from launching and exploding in different countries, solving crimes, putting terrorist in prison, being an MI6 agent and saving the world. Anthony Horowitz's fourth book Eagle Strike begins when Alex is on vacation with his girlfriend and her parents, relaxing in Southern France when their holiday villa suddenly gets blown up. He gets very suspicious! Then suddenly he gets a strange phone call in the telephone box by a man called Damian Cay. He is curious and goes into a library to find out more about him, his life and his fame. After a little while he finds out that he will be attempting to try launch missiles on countries, tricking the president to let him have the codes for launching missiles and letting him borrow his private jet. Alex doesn't let this happen...
I liked this book very much but I would say it’s definitely a boy’s book. This book is probably age 9+.
