Snakehead: An Alex Rider Adventure (Alex Rider #7)
i'm sorry i can't tell you much about what happens because i read it ages ago and I LOVED IT!
MY TOP FAVOURITE ALEX RIDER NOVELS:
Of course I love all the other ones and i loved reading this one, i think mainly because the evil character in this one is so different and scary sounding and the way (view spoiler)[ Major Yu dies is so gruesome! (hide spoiler)]
Also, i am always a fan of the story lin ...more
what it's about: Alex Rider is recruited by the Australian intelligence agency to go undercover as an Afghan refugee to find out about a "snakehead" (a network of immigrant smugglers) which is connected to Scorpia, Alex's biggest enemy.
along the way he gets information about his par ...more
My favorite character is Alex Rider, he is a secret agent trying to figure out who killed his dad. He goes on a mission to get to an island where he heard somebody important is hiding there. He takes a kayak and paddles down a river to go find the island.
My favorite part is when he is paddling ...more
The main character is Alex. He is an agent for MI6 and had missions throughout the series. In this mission he has to find more about the gang, Snakehead and defuse a bomb. This mission shows that he is compassionate and brave. In the text MI6 tells Alex about the bomb the text says,"Once again, Alex fell sile ...more
This books fills the space of the male main character. This book is interesting because it is a boy who has to keep himself safe from very dangerous people like a man called Yu, which is his worst enemy.
I think the most interesting character was Alex Rider because he is a spy who had to overcome his parents deaths. He is caught up in a whole lot of problems and has to th ...more
It's thrilling, engaging, and above all, genuine. We empathize with Alex much more in Snakehead than we ever have in Skeleton Key or Ark Angel precisely because it is through it that we see Alex mature as he struggles with his past, present and future. The other characters are also incredibly well-develope ...more
Wasted talent, of course.
Perhaps I’m getting emotional because I’m watching the last act of Aida as I write this, but the Alex Rider series makes me kind of sad. Anthony Horowitz is an absolutely amazing writer—he can create breath-stopping suspense and throw in some truly unexpected plot twists, but he is wasting this talent on a cliché series. Sure, Alex has a bit more depth by now, but he is still a cardboard cutout. And yes, the plot of Snakehead is exciting, ...more
In previous books teenaged Alex has worked (reluctantly) for the British Secret Service and for the American Secret Service a couple times so when he crash-lands off the coast of Australia it only makes sense that they recruit him for a job with their Secret Service. It's just a routine job- Alex is to accompany an agent a ...more
It all started off when Royal Blue got stolen. Alex was in Australia at the time. He of course said yes to go on the mission because his god father Ash was going to be his partner. He wanted to learn more information on his parents and Ash knew Alex's parents. Alex and Ash were disguised as refuges of Australia. They were pretending to be father and son. They were to buy guns and other weapons from ...more
What goes up must come down, and when we last saw Alex Rider, he was as up as can be--in outer space. When he crash lands off the coast of Australia, the Australian Secret Service recruits him to infiltrate one of the ruthless gangs operating across South East Asia. Known as snakeheads, the gangs smuggle drugs, weapons, and worst of all, people. Alex accepts the assignment, in part for the chance to work with his godfather and learn more about his parents. What he uncovers, however, is a secret...more
(view spoiler)[Okay, the whole thing with Ash? Knew it. Called it. Whatever. If he really cared that much about Alex he would have been more prominent or making some sort of contact with Alex throughout his life. He didn't. So that's how I knew.
But seriously: how many times am I going to read through a villain explaining what they're going to do, how they're going to do it? Alex is always g ...more
