Alex Rider goes on another tremendously dangerous case. “Never Say Die” means “Don’t Give Up”, and in this book, Alex has to solve a big mystery, and he won’t give up! Is Jack alive? Alex Rider is in America with his foster family. He suddenly gets an email that he guesses might be from Jack Starbright…or is it? He gets the first flight to Cairo and then goes to Siwa, where he goes back to his and Jack’s cell, looking for clues. Will SCORPIA fail again?
This book is brilliant, because Anthony Horowitz puts lots of information about places in the sentences, so you can actually picture it as though it were real. At one point, I thought I was watching a film in my head, that’s how clearly I could see things. My favourite setting is Smoke City, but I’m not telling you what that is, because I really think you should read the book. Alex is an enthusiastic, adventurous, brave and clever agent, who “Never Says Die”.
This book would be suitable for 10-12 year-olds, but I really enjoyed it, too!
My name is Toby, and I am 9 years old. I have written letters to every country in the world - you can read about that adventure at my other website, Writing to the World. Some letters are published in a book called "Dear World, How Are You?". In order to learn more about the countries I am writing to, I am reading books, and I am reviewing them here. I also reviewed books for LoveReading4Kids, and those reviews are on here, too. I am trying to find one book set in each country, or by an author from that country. My Mum is doing the same for grown-up books, and I am reviewing mine, and she is reviewing hers. So whether you are a child or a grown-up, you can explore the world with us :)
