Dec 30, 2011
Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz is one of the books in the series of Alex Rider. The story begins in England where Alex is given a mission, the story goes that Alex gets mixed up in a chinese triad operation(must read the book to find out who the triads are)and that he has to flee out of England if he does not want to get killed. Alex works at an english organization called MI6, but he is not a official agent for them because he dislikes them a lot. MI6 sends Alex to the CIA for his safety, but MI6 have set up a deal with them so they can use him for an operation. The operation is targeting one guy which is General Sarov, it has been rumor that he has is about Alex saving the world from being blown up by an atomic bomb. A retired General from Russia wants to make Russia the most powerful country in the world. It starts when there has been a robbery in Wimbledon and Alex is called to do a job there and gets into trouble, so MI6 has to send got hold of uranium that was smuggled out of the middle east. The CIA are very curious of what he is doing because he has invited the president of Russia over to his mansion in an island in Cuba called Skeleton Key. Alex has to be part of the operatin and is put with to CIA agents and there cover are being a family because it general would use the uranium for he is left guessing until the end of the story. The book is one of my new favorites because all the scenes are described to the point where you know what the author is talking about and not just having a rough idea. I enjoyed it a lot because when you were reading it in every page I turned I didn't know what was on the on the other side, I would say that this book is a bit addictive when you start reading it. When I was reading it I found it a bit hard to predict what was next which means the story line is tricky, in some parts it was easier to predict what was next then others. The plot of the whole story is very original and imaginative, I thought that there where not boring part in the book at all. You will have to read the book to find out what happens in the end!
