This book was amazing! I read it in two day. A great book for action thrill seekers! It only makes sense if you read the books before though.

I enjoyed it, an easy beach read. Horowitz puts depth to Alex Rider, the reader understands that he is only a teenager, but you can also see a maturity in him that leaves no room for a whiny teenager, which is great characterization.

Alex Rider is an teenage M16 spy. While on Vacation in south of France his hosts house gets attacked by terrorists and Alex is determined to finds out who stood behind it and why. When nothing can get worse he meets his ark Nemesis who tries to kill him. Will Alex find out how attacked his host or will this be the end of Alex. Join Alex on his an adventure with rockets games and pop stars. This is the best Alex rider book and I recommend this book to children over 10 years old.

Eagle Strike is part of the Alex Rider Series that has the teen spy Alex Rider saving the world. In this story, Alex adverts a nuclear strike from a insane pop star. The story takes place about 100 miles from Spain. Alex finds his old nemisis Yassen Gregorovich . Alex listens in on Yassen's converstation where he is caught by Yassen. Alex knocks him about and sneaks into Yassen's yacht. Alex wants revenge for his grandfather's death which was caused by Yassen. I would recommend this mystery novel for those who love suspense and action.

These books continue to make me happy, one of the few books i have enjoyed. I love the way they kill Damian Cray, (SPOILER ALERT) right through a jet engine by Air Force One.

While the Alex Rider series isn't for everyone, I do enjoy reading it quite a bit. Horowitz writes well enough to keep me engaged -- and the plot tends to be interesting enough that I want to know what happens next. What makes Eagle Strike different compared to the previous novels is the fact that Alex ends up alienating a lot of people (as well as hurting people he cares about). There are a couple of scenes that are profound moments for Alex that caught me by surprise, a couple of them come right near the end of the story. I liked the character development of Alex, he's likable (as usual, but even more so as the book goes on). But biggest issues with this story basically happen in the beginning. While much of the plot in the Alex Rider novels tends to be unbelievable, there's a bit too much of that in the first part of Eagle Strike. But once you get over that, the story gets back on track.

This is the fourth title in Horowitz¿s Alex Rider series. Former MI6 teen spy, Alex spots bad guy, Yassen Gregorovich, while on vacation in the South of France. Yassen is a contract killer who murdered his uncle, Ian Rider. Alex is gradually drawn into investigating the international pop star and philanthropist, Damian Cray, a crazy madman who is about to launch a new video game that hides sinister motives and nuclear threat. Alex is a reluctant spy, ¿But you¿re not a spy, Alex. You know that. Even if Ian had some crazy idea about training you. Three times now you¿ve taken off from school and each time you¿ve come back a bit more beat-up¿It wasn¿t my choice¿Alex said.¿(page 54) This is a romping, though absurd story with a little romance thrown in. It will generally appeal mostly to boys,particularly those who adore ¿Bond, James Bond.¿ Book talk it by playing up all the technology and Bond-like spy thrilling adventures that happen, such as being forced to play the matador in a bull fight.

While on vacation in France with Sabina Pleasure, Alex Rider notices assassin Yassen Gregorovich; Alex decides to ignore him. However, the Pleasures' vacation house explodes, leaving Alex to suspect Yassen. Infiltrating his yacht Alex goes and tries to shoot Yassen, but decides not to then Alex gets caught and placed in a bull fight. He escapes without much bruises, and finds a telephone booth and calls a number from Yassen's phone. Hearing pop-star Damian Cray on the line, he hangs up. Though MI6 doesn't support him, he investigates. I like all Anthony Horowitz's books and this was no exception.

I think if I were a teenager I would have a crush on Alex Rider. I like spy books, and no one gets themselves in and out of more trouble than Alex Rider. Yet, you gotta love that kid. He is good to the heart. This installment was a little far-fetched, but action-packed and a really good story. Aren't the best stories far-fetched?

I absolutely love this book. It really is vivid and interesting!

I thought that this book was rather disapointing. It definetly had a lot of potential though with the types of action scenes that took place. I think that better word choice could have made this book much better. Overall, i think that this book would have been more interesting and suspensful if it had just been written better. A different story line, developed characters, and more realism would be a great start. I dont think i am going to read the sequal anyways.
