How disappointing. Only 14 pages and not really much of a story. This could have been an excerpt from a chapter within any one of the Alex Rider books. I love the stories and was hoping for more. This wasn't worth the time.

A brief episode during a brief vacation for an English spy. It takes about 5 minutes to read, and even less time to forget. So, why not just forget about it ahead of time?

I was under the impression that I was actually buying a book instead of a 14 page chapter. If you are going to offer something, make it worthwhile.

First thing's first, do not bother to get the sample. It is only three pages long and only shows copywrite. Second, the story itself is only about twenty pages long a very bland story. I personally have a question about this book, is it actually by Anthony Horowitz? I know it says so but that could mean anything. It just doesn't seem like Anthony Horowitz to write such a bland story. You would think that he would at least throw in a couple of terrorists with AK's in there somewhere! In the end, I do not recommend this book and thanks for reading another D.Z. review! Remember to check out my reviews on "Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan" and "Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz."

I was under the impression that this is a horrible book around twenty pages long. The free sample is just copyrights so dont bother with them. If you have already purchased this, please send me a message on Facebook (Troy Revier) as to the content of the pages, I will post it on here if I do recieve one. Thanks or your time! Have a nice day. P.S. Dont mind my rating, I was going off of overall rating.

If you guys are so disapointed then why dont you just buy the books in the Alex Rider series that are actually like 20 chapters or more long I have not read this yet but what it sounds like is that it is just an overview of Alexs life... By the way Anthony Horowitz is one of the best authors in the universe.
