" I have now finished the book and I liked it but it wasn't as good as all the other ones or at least Eagle Strike (my favourite). It was pretty good though I loved how shocked and resistant Alex was when he was told he had to go to space! I knew he would go anyway though! I think that its kind of silly that Alex hates being a spy but every time something seems suspicious, he has to go check it out but if he didn't there would be no story I guess! " said.

"I read this book, Ark Angel because I was recommended by my friends to read this book.I also read this because I read other Alex Rider books that was in the series before this one.

I really enjoyed this book because there is a lot of mystery, action, and it's really intense. It has a real life theme to it like things in this book can actually happen in real life.

In this book, it's about a teenage kid name Alex Rider who is a super spy working for MI6 in the UK. In Ark Angel , Alex have to go into space to stop the first space hotel exploding and killing civilians on Earth. I recommend this book to people who likes guns, explosions, lots of intense action, and mystery.

" "Ark Angel", by Anthony Horowitz, is yet another book in the Alex Rider series. This series is about a boy who even is young by age, is an advanced undercover agent for M16 for the British Government. In this book, Alex Rider is awake in a hospital in London after being shot by a scout sniper, and is in stable condition. While in the hospital, he notices a group of people attempting to kidnap a boy in the hospital. When Alex tries to help, it leads to a series of multiple unfortunate events. It is up to Alex from then to make it out alive.
Out of every Alex Rider book I have read, this has been my favorite. What I enjoy in books, which made me enjoy this one is the ability to hide details to a certain level. I also enjoyed how I could relate to the main character in the book, and how well the Horowitz took me into the story. I would definitely recommend this book to one who is into young action, and can handle surprises. Overall 5/5 stars.

"This book was okay. I feel like we've seen the evil multibillionare before (hmm . . . Alex seems to have even mentioned a certain Damian Cray in considering Drevin's offer), although the space element was new.

Oh, and what was with Alex's language? I've already read the next book and I feel like Horowitz was trying to make Alex seem mature and cool or whatever. Hey, it just seemed cheesy and lame to me, but maybe I just got tired of reading the three words "single ugly swearword." Honestly. Maybe you need a few synonyms, Horowitz. There's a lot of them at your disposal. Here's a few for your enjoyment: "Curse" *Bleep* "Rude word" "Insult"

Also, Alex's coincidences are getting to be a bit much. The knife in the spacecraft? Please.

I'll probably just let my brother check out the last two books and I'll read them as they come. *shrug* It isn't important enough for me to check them out . . .

Gah, I'm a hater. Sorry. I really don't hate the AR series, but I would like it to change up a bit. Not that there's anything I can do about it now, or anything Horowitz can do about it now, but . . . well, I think it could be improved a little.

Alex Rider Ark Angle by Anthony Hotowitz is the sixth book in the Alex Rider series. The series has eight books. Alex Rider Ark Angle and all of the other books are action mystery books. Alex Rider is a fourteen year old who is an undercover spy who works for the special operations in England, MI6. A sniper bullet almost killed him but, at the hospital, he wants to freshen up at night and is kidnapped by eco terrorists, who think he is a billionaires’ dad. Alex Rider is a very brave man but I think he is depressed. Every time he goes on a mission, he missed school and people think he is crazy. He only has one friend. Ms. Jones and Alan Blunt are also part of M16. They care for Alex but sometimes they need to lie to him (which he hates). Alex’s parents are dead and he lived with his uncle (who was also part of M16) however, he died. Alex lives with his loving and caring guardian; Jack Starbright. Alex becomes best friends with the boy who should have been kidnapped and goes on a vacation with them. While on the vacation, the Central Intelligence Agency of America (CIA) had a plan to kidnap Alex, and to tell him who he is dealing with and what is wrong. I like how in every book; the missions are complicated and amazing. I dislike how he has been in many life or death situations and always finds a way to get out. I think there are just too many situations where he will die but every one is very exciting.

" I first chose this book because of the other Alex Rider books I have read and they were all very good so I thought: "Why not? This is an Alex Rider book so it should be the same." However, my friends that read this book said it was the worst book in the series. That stopped me for a bit but I decided to read it.
When I finished reading this book, I found out that this book wasn't like the other Alex Rider books in the series. This displeased me since it actually was kind of boring and there wasn't much action. On the other hand, the new way this book was written was different from the other Alex Rider books and I kind of also appreciated the different way the events turned out because it was different from the plain old other Alex Rider books. So it was kind of boring and not boring at the same time which is why I gave it a 4 stars not a 3 though I was kind of hovering over it. Usually, Alex Rider books are written in a way that Alex is deployed by MI6 then he goes undercover as a teenager as a criminal's someone then he gets caught and he has to find a way to get out of that situation then arrest the criminal. However, this Alex Rider book instead has Alex on a vacation then he is invited by a billionaire criminal then he is found out then he has to get out of the situation then he has to stop something from going wrong.
This book has made me like fiction and action books even more and also the Alex Rider series.

"So last week my granddaughter comes home from 5th grade and says "I got you a book from my school library". I explained that I had a lot to read but thanked her for thinking of me. The look on her face was too much (they sure know what buttons to push) so I said that I thought I could work it in. Big print...yes!!!!

Of my two granddaughters, she is NOT my big reader, so I was surprised. Maybe they read it in class, but she couldn't or wouldn't say why this particular book. After my comments left on blogs last week about reading a series in order, my cheeks got pink to start in the middle of this series, but not being a prepubescent boy, I had never heard of Alex Rider. Amazingly, this was a really fun book!

Alex Rider is 14 and a British spy. He has all the cool James Bond toys and travels all over the world and beyond. It is not written in a childish way, and is a rousing good mystery/adventure style that would certainly hold the attention of any boy or girl . This book begins with Alex in the hospital recovering from a gunshot wound, when he meets the boy in the next room, Paul Drevon, son if a Russian billionaire. Nikolei Drevon has teamed with the British government to build the first hotel in outer space, but is being plagued by an eco-terrorist group, Force Three, lead by Kaspar, a freakish, tattooed, evil, killer. Alex finds himself kidnapped by mistake, daringly escapes, and goes on to stay with Paul and his father, attempting to make sense of why and who is trying to stop the project dubbed Ark Angel.

There is violence in this book, but nothing over the top, and I cannot remember one bit of sex, so I think it is recommended for the late elementary age. I was intrigued by the premise and since this was new to me, I may look for other Alex Rider books to read and discuss with GD2. It was a fast read (one day) and if you have any doubt, you can pre-read.

I received this book from the Bear Canyon Elementary Library, via GD2. Thanks kiddo!!
