I'm not afraid to admit that I enjoy these books. They're a fun thrill that are well written and thought out.
Being the fourth book, it did tend to feel a bit stale at the start. Horowitz does change the setup a bit, taking Alex into a different sort of scenario than we've seen thus far and doing so allows us to not have to suspend logic too much, which is always a plus.
To add to the twist in format, here was a hint of something bigger at play right from the beginning, something that - I'm expecting - will play out through the rest of the series.
I suppose there's only one was to find out....
