Reviews for Stormbreaker : Library Edition

School Library Journal Reviews 2001 September
Gr 5-8-British actor Nathaniel Parker does a smashing job of narrating this fast-paced thriller by Anthony Horowitz (Philomel, 2001). His voice is clear and consistent, lending dramatic flair to the overall tone of the novel. He successfully distinguishes among the story's various voices, and captures the excitement of the action and suspense. The tapes begin and end with appropriate James Bond-type music as 14-year-old Alex Rider, equipped with special training and gadgets from the government, takes over his mysteriously-killed uncle's dangerous mission. Alex encounters his share of villains and adventures as he uncovers the alarming secret behind Sayle Enterprises' new computer, Stormbreaker. First in a series, libraries will want to add this quality audiobook to their espionage collections.- Kathy Husband, Golden Library, Jefferson County Public Library, CO Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
