Product Description

After his guardian dies in suspicious circumstances, fourteen-year-old Alex Rider finds his world turned upside down. Forcibly recruited into MI6 as its youngest ever spy, he is sent off to Cornwall to face his first adversary – Middle Eastern multi-billionaire Herod Sayle, inventor of the space-age Stormbreaker computer. The computer is about to be given free to every school in the country, but there’s more to the gift than meets the eye… All the furious excitement and nail-biting danger of Alex’s first adventure – in a jaw-dropping manga format which every boy will love! Cinematic, dramatic and brilliantly drawn, this graphic version of a bestselling book is great for reluctant readers.

    Amazing drawings

    A fantastic graphic book that evolves around a boy called Alex Rider. There is never a boring moment and the amazing drawings, by Antony Johnston, really pull you into the book. The boy, Alex is recruited to MI6 against his own will. His first assignment is to find information about Darrius Sayle and these computers he has made called the Stormbreaker. The reason MI6 want to investigate him is because he is giving away a computer to every school in the country. Later in the novel he finds out that the computers contain a virus that will kill all the school children in England. He needs to stop them from being switched on throughout the country! I give this book a rating: 7/10 because it misses out some very good parts that are included in the book. I recommend this book for ages: 7-15 year olds.

    Alex’s Uncle works for the ‘bank’. Well, that’s what he tells his nephew. Little does Alex know, he actually works for MI6 and every day when he leaves for work, he’s most-likely jetting off to another country to track people down and have a car chase….maybe he’ll even kill someone if he has to. This massive secret is found out though, when eventually Alex’s Uncle dies on one of his missions. At the funeral, Alex is approached by someone and that’s when the story really starts to happen.

    Stormbreaker was the first graphic novel that I ever read, and it really made a great first impression on me. The beginning of the book seemed like the middle of the story, and it was full of mystery which really made me want to read more.

    The drawings in this book are really cool. Sometimes the scene has no need for words, as the picture alone is expressive enough. They’re really impressive!

    I think this graphic novel gets a 5/5. I can’t see anything wrong with this at all – great for a beginner or a short-story for a more experienced reader.
