Survival

'“It hurtles through its narrative with a high octane buzz. . . . While the storylines follow a mix of The Bourne Identity, Bladerunner and the X-Men, the underlying message is all about growing up and free will. Jimmy might be a bio-engineered killing phenomenon, but he's also a confused little boy being asked to grow up far too quickly. His emotions mirror those felt by pre-teens up and down the country, whether or not their own coming-of-age stories are considerably more quotidian. Readers are also asked to think about to what extent external forces have impact on their choices and behaviour. Loyalty to family and friends and civil liberties are constant underlying themes. It's fun, it's fantastic, it's full of gadgets. There are some serious messages too. Jimmy Coates 5-0 Alex Rider.” —The Bookbag'
