Crocodile Tears: An Alex Rider Adventure Rating: 5


Crocodile Tears is an Alex Rider adventure by Anthony Horowitz that sees teen spy Alex, who works for Britiains M16, use his wits and cool gadgets to stop the bad guys.


The Story

Crocodile Tears: An Alex Rider Adventure feels like something you’d find in the daily news, with a charity broker con artist raising millions of dollars in donations only to invest them in a form of genetically modified wheat that has the power to release an airborne strain of virus so powerful, it can knock out an entire country in one windy day – a catastrophe so far-reaching that it would raise millions of dollars more in charitable donations, all of which would be embezzled by one man. The antidote? Alex Rider, of course, who survives gunfire, explosions, and hand-to-combat with mercenaries – just another day in the life of an average teen super-spy kid.


We loved this book – fast-paced with plenty of hi-jinks to keep you flipping the pages. The author does a great job of maintaining the suspense and the kick-ass action is so visual as to be easily imagined.

    To be completely and utterly honest, i think it's slightly young. I wouldn't go any younger that 16. Being 13 myself, i think it's hard trying to decide and put a label on something like this. If you bisexual, great! Straight, great! What i'm saying is....We have PLENTY of time in life to decide, so don't rush it just to say "Hey, i'm bi!" Or "Hey, I'm straight!"

Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  Oh i'm so sorry if the right to have my own views has offended you, i'm just  saying that the way i see it is that at the age of thirteen a kid is now being introduced to topics such as these and their hormones are now kicking in and they should give themselves time to grow, these are my views and i'm entitled to them, just the way you are to yours. Second of all its my signature , i'll put what i want and quote what i want from who i want, and if it bothers you that much then just be the big kid you are and ignore it, K?
