“There’s a name for people with an interest in the moon,” Alex said. “They’re called lunatics.”


It’s just another day in the life of an average kid. If you’re Alex Rider, that is. A con artist has realized there is big money in charity, the bigger the disaster, the greater the money flow! So that is what he will produce: the biggest disaster known to man, all thanks to genetically modified corn that can release a virus so potent it can knock out an entire country in one windy day. But Alex Rider will face whatever it takes, gunfire, explosions, hand-to-hand combat with mercenaries, to bring down his most dangerous adversary. Yet.

Personal Experiences

Ok. I lied. I previously told you that other Alex Rider books were my favorite. This. Was. A. Lie. 

My favorite Alex Rider book is Crocodile Tears and Russian Roulette (Alex Rider #10)

I don’t know why I love this one so much. I guess it is because Anthony has finally stopped being redundant with his books. 


“The school even had a Latin motto: Pergo et Perago, which sounded like the story of two Italian cannibals but which actually meant “I try and I achieve.”

“What were you going to do with it?” McCain asked.
“I just thought it might come in useful.”
“Were you planning to attack me?”
“No. But that’s a good idea.”

“You cannot defeat your enemies until you know who they are.”

“He died fighting for what he believed in.”

“Look at self-satisfied pop singers or greasy, semi-literate athletes. People worship them. Why?”
“Because they’re talented.”

“When you are rich, people treat you with respect.”

Snap your jaws at Crocodile Tears
