Stormbreaker

By Anthony Horowitz, project by Nathan Rolfes

The genre of this book is fictional adventure.

I rate this book a 9 out of 10.

Two reasons why I think this way is even though the book had a nice plot, it took a while for any action to get started. It also provided a new premise to books about how spies aren't paid, they are used.

Protagonist: Alex Rider

A young 14-15 year old boy spy that was hired by MI6 to carry out dangerous missions with aliases as other people.

Antagonist: Herod Sayle

An evil genius who was saved from poverty and now is extremely rich, wants to kill all British schoolchildren with his Stormbreaker computers because he was bullied by the future British Prime Minister in school.

Setting

Sayle Enterprises is located in Port Talon, a fictional city in the UK. Part of the book is also located in London. This story takes place in present day.

A good example of theme would be good vs. evil.

An example from the text would be,"You ruined everything!' Sayle howled. 'How did you do it? How did you trick me? I'd have beaten you if you'd been a man! But they had to send a boy! A bliddy schoolboy! Well, it isn't over yet!' "

A conflict is character vs. character.

Evidence from the text is," He emptied the gun. The first bullet smashed into the information desk. The second hit the Prime Minister in the hand, his finger less than an inch away from the mouse. The third his the mouse, blowing it to fragments. The fourth hit an electrical connection, disintegrating the plug an short circuiting it. Sayle had dived forward, determined to click on the mouse himself. The fifth and sixth billets hit him."

Memorable Quotes:

"My name, is Blunt. I am the chief executive of the Special Operations Division of MI6. And your uncle was, for want of a better word, a spy."


"I'm still a joke! I'm still Herod Smell, the goat-boy, the Cairo tramp. Well, for forty years I've been planning my revenge. And now, at last my time has come. Mr. Grin..."
