Money

While I was reading the book Snakehead I noticed that almost every time someone had money they Killed , Stole , smuggled etc . So money is a symbol for crime, greed etc . This greed is what lead to Alex beeing involved in the first place . So this greed is what lead to Alex beeing asked to assit the Austrilan Government . In the part of the story were Alex is forced to fight at the illegal boxing ring . At this time the audince is placeing bets on who will win . Although they think their bet is safe and they will win lots of money (at Alex's expense ) . So to make money they wouldn't care if a 15 year old boy was hurt or killed .

Recomendation

Snakehead is an elexicant book , and i really enjoyed it . If anyone asked what I think I would say " I love it and highly recomend it to anyone who wants a little bit of a chalenge , but a good book " . The reason why I think this is that Alex Rider books are joust like a movie . It paints a clear picture of the way events happen . Such as when Alex Rider is flying into Bangkok and sees all the highrises and cars in the city . Then he also describes the rapids as a swiring mass of water that have the power to snap his raft in half . Their is also a twist in every story written by Anthony Horwozits . In Snakehead it is Ash . I can't tell you what he does , but when I found out I was infurated with him . The author does an exelent job of pulling you into the story by useing the five senses and imagrey constally through the book . So overall I recomend this book for all of my classmates and friends .
