Having read the first two books in the Alex Rider Series – Stormbreaker and Point Blanc – I was so gripped by the thrilling suspense and drama that I could not help but read the third book, Skeleton Key. If anyone else has read this, I am sure that they would agree with me that Horowitz catches the reader’s attention straight away and for those of you who have not read it, I would definitely recommend it.
‘Night came quickly to Skeleton Key’.
I am sure that everyone would want to carry on reading this book after this beginning. However, even if the start does not appeal to you, I am sure that reading the rest of the book would be worthwhile.
This book is about a fourteen year old boy, named Alex Rider, who is a spy for MI6 and has to prevent a bomb exploding, which would kill lots of people. He finds himself in lots of trouble, escaping death on a few occasions. However, Alex has a job to fulfil. Can he accomplish it and save many innocent beings? Read the book to find out.
I recommend this book to anyone over the age of 11 because it is a very interesting, action packed book, which involves bombs, fire and shooting. I am certain that adults will also love this adventurous novel. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series sometime soon
