" Alex Rider crash lands his space capsule in the ocean near Australia, and is immediately recruited by the Australian national police to help stop illegal human trafficking. All set to say no, they offer Alex a plum he cannot resist: working with his father's closest friend and learning more about his parents. While infiltrating the snakehead, Alex uncovers a plot by Scorpio to kill off peaceniks by creating a tidal wave. Alex is helped by his old "friends" in MI6, and has to save the day again. " said.

"Great addition to the Alex Rider series of books. It was well written, and similar to many of the other books in the series, with Alex being left in risky situations, with cliff hangers at the end of chapters and action packed scenes that make you just want to keep reading more and more! Alex matures from the mindset of a young tween to that of an adult throughout the books, which gives you a closer connection to him and other characters as the book (and series) progress. I would recommend this series to most anyone in my age group, as it can get most anyone hooked in a matter of pages read!" said.

"After his last mission with MI6, Alex Rider just wants to relax and spend time with Jack Starbright, his legal Guardian. What he wants is to be away from MI6 as far away from them as possible. But suddenly, Alex realizes that there's a way to get his hands on the past as he meets his Godfather Ash. Soon, both of them choose to stop the villainous Snakehead Major Winston Yu. The funny thing though, is that Yu used to be part of the MI6. And when Alex has to stop his evil plans to destroy an entire Island, he can only rely on himself and Ash. Or can he? Find out in Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz a story about action, loyalty and adventure." said.

"Not soon after the capsule coming back from outer space hits the South West Pacific, Alex is recruited (by the way) by the Australian Secret Service for a mission discovering details of a network that smuggles people illegally into Australia. Alex will meet Ash, his Godfather, in Bangkok. Here Alex finds out also an agenda involving Scorpia to blow up a small island in the Pacific which is hosting an alternative G8 meeting. Part of the story then involves Indonesia. The two missions converge. Alex will sadly find out that Ash is actually working for Scorpia and was involved in the murdering of his parents (blowing up the plane they took to the South of France). Ash, the best link to his parents - and now a traitor, dies in the oil rig that is set to place the bomb under the island.
" said.

"Another fantastic book in the Alex Rider series. I really don't know what else to write, to make these reviews different from each other in the non-spoiler section.

I think I'd only read this book once before, as a lot of what happened was foggy in my memory. But as usual, as I read more it all came flooding back to me.

I'm really excited to read the next two books, but I feel sorry for Alex. He still can't catch a break. But it's okay! Only 2 books to go and he can rest for as long as he likes (if he survives :O ).

(But Anna I thought there were 3 more books? There are. But the last one is about YassEN GREGOROVICH. THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. I mean... what?)

Alright. Spoiler time.

"This one took a little while to get going with the 'straightforward' and 'minimal risk' part of the
mission taking up the majority of the book. I'd predicted the twist very early on.
It seems that Alex's luck level equals Tintin's as he is able to survive against impossible odds. Of course, being a James Bond inspired story does allow for this sort of thing, but I did find the waterfall scene perhaps a little bit of a stretch. The hospital scene was particularly dark for this series but did show the increased level of threat that the snakehead represented.
This edition had the bonus chapter 'Coda' telling us how 'it' happened. Although it did flesh out the
sentence that described the scene a little, it didn't really tell us anything already stated or implied in the original sentence, except perhaps add a little ambiguity to certain things.
This edition also featured an afterword by Anthony who revealed the origins and thoughts behind most of the names from the series. This was a nice touch.
" said.

" I feel like there's so much packed into this book. It could almost be the last book in the series. Anyway, I can't wait to reread the rest of Alex's adventures. " said.

"THIS BOOK IS SO BRILLIANT ONE OF THE MOST ENTERTAINING MISSIONS ALEX HAS BEEN ON BUT THIS ONE WAS A LITTLE PERSONAL AND IT WAS SO HEARTBREAKING OMG ALEX AND HIS GODFATHER AND AH IT'S JUST SO GOOD ONE OF MY FAVOURITES OF THE SERIES AND ONE OF MY FAVOURITES OF THIS YEAR AND OF ALL TIME I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH OMG READ ON HOLIDAY AND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE ALEX WAS IN THAILAND AND OUT OF PLACE AND I WAS IN CULTURE SHOCK IN A SIMILAR COUNTRY AND WAS MISSING ENGLAND AND I FELT ALEX'S PAIN BUT HIS PAIN WAS STILL SO MUCH DEEPER AH" said.
