wrong book????

I love this story and was getting this to reread/listen but unfortunately after a few chapters it changes to the wrong alex rider novel (ark angel)....its a real shame as I would love to listen to the whole series again and audible is missing quite a few of them.

Getting a big stretched

Loved the first few books in the series, but this will be my last. Didn’t feel it was believable at all. Everyone seeming to want to explain themselves to the 14 year old boy and seek his approval all the time. I get that it’s meant to empower teens, but just felt comical. Found it hard to finish.
