Finding Jack

Never Say Die (Alex Rider) - Anthony Horowitz

Finding Nemo Alex Rider version. 

 

With more actions. 

 

I thought this is the last book. So happy that new one is coming soon.

 

Alex Rider lost Jack in the last adventure. Now he thought he got some vague hints that Jack might still be alive. And it is all a cruel trick on him to let him feel the pain of losing the only adult that care for him constantly.

 

Good that his Sabrina's father took him in.

 

But Alex Rider wouldn't let go of even a small chance that Jack is still alive and he could find her again.

 

Sometimes we read YA because it reminds us of how life look like when we are still young, and the world is both scary and exciting at the same time.

 

I wanted to read book that has less cynicism that reflect the cruel human made reality that we are living in now. 

 

And YA has an additional advantage of usually not ended too badly for the main characters. 

 

Anthony is a good writing for adding humors into the story. And the character building for Alex has done pretty well. Although the villains are usually too forthcoming with their evil plan, that reminds us of most of the animations on TV. iit is not really that distracting. 

 

Action adventure teenage spy stuff is pretty addictive if it is done correctly. 

 

Highly recommended this for a summer read.
