WARNING This is a spoiler

1. Alex Rider is a fourteen years old teenager who lives in London. His parents are dead, and he lives with an American girl. Her name is Jack Starbright. His uncle was a spy who works for the government, and his uncle dies. MI6 asks Alex to replace his Uncle's place. MI6 give him a mission to investigate a school 'Point Blanc'. The director of the school is Dr.Grief. MI6 creates a false identity for him and arms him with some gadgets and they send him there. It takes place in the French Alps.
2. The main conflict is between Alex Rider and Dr.Grief fighting over Dr.Grief's plan to dominate the world. The plan is this: He clones himself 16 times, and replace the children of the school and send his own clones back to their parents. When the parents are dead, the clones of Dr.Grief would receive their wealth and power. Alex Rider struggles to find out what his plan is, and escapes the academy after his real identity is revealed.
3. I liked the book because it contained a lot of actions and there is a reversal in the final part of the story.(In the final part, Alex meets his own clone) This book was the kind of a genre that I liked and even though it didn't actually happen, it is better than stories with wizards or magic like Harry Potter. Being James Bond in miniature is way cooler than that.
