Cherub is a Great book with lots of danger and humour. I would recommend this for anyone who's ready for danger without the danger.

The book I've been reading is 'CHERUB the recruit', the book was written by Robert Muchamore.

The book is an action spy book set in England but sometimes they are in other countries on missions. the book feels like it could be set today even though it was written five years ago.

 

The book starts out at James' home town were he gets into some trouble and after getting into even more trouble eventually gets sent to cherub, he starts training and going on missions. through out the book james problems still follow him. The main characters in the book are fleshed out quite well but the author doesn't tell you what they look like, I like how this story is setting up others to come and is the story of James' journey to grow up. when reading the book you could see what James was feeling. 

 

 I like how the book is set in the real world, there are no robots or people with X-ray vision, this is good because it makes the book easier to follow. The writing is in the 3rd person but it is focused on james. 

 

The books main message is to challenge yourself and push your body and mind to the limit.

This book is mostly aimed at teenagers because they are using characters that teenagers can relate to. I thought this book was really good and I would give it a 4 out of 5.

The Recruit is an absolutley amazing book. It starts with James Choke, a normal 10 year old boy living with his mother and sister in London. James' mother runs the biggest shoplifting scheme in London and James has a knack for getting into trouble, however, when his mother suddenly passes away he is put into a childrens home and separated from his sister. What he doesn't know is that this is a recruitment test.

He then is accepted to CHERUB, a branch of the British intelligence that uses agents aged between 10 - 17, where he trains to become and agent.

As the whole series continues, more missions are completed and more links are made.

I highly reccommend this book to anyone looking for a bit of an adventurous, exciting read.
