I’m back with another book review. I’ve been re-reading the CHERUB series and can’t wait to grab the next couple of books to bring back with me while I’m home! 🙂
I think with the CHERUB series it’s one that makes most sense if you read the series in order and not just pick up one of the books, which is sad. I mean they do make sense as stand alone books but I think they are best read in order 🙂
So “Class A” (or as it used to be called “The Dealer”) is unsurprisingly about some of the biggest drug dealers that the police and MI5 are trying to shut down. So that’s where the CHERUBS come along. To befriend the children of the man in charge of the drugs operation and attempt to gain evidence that will help MI5 and the police shut the drug dealing down for good.
In this story we join James Adams on his second mission, along with some of his friends. We also get to meet another character, Zara who becomes a huge part of the series later on! (why it pays to read them in order). 🙂
From this story I mean who wouldn’t love these kids as your friends? They know what they’re doing and can stick up for you. These books are fantastic young adult reads mostly aimed at boys, but I know plenty of girls who enjoy reading them too. They’re written in such a realistic way that actually you could imagine this all happening somewhere out there. Plus the ending to this book is great! And definitely that action packed ending that you’d hope after the whole mission! 🙂
Have you read any of the CHERUB series? Have I persuaded you to do so? 🙂
I’m back with ANOTHER book review. Can you believe it?! 3 book reviews in a row! I told you I was doing lots of reading at the moment! 😀
This is another re-read of one of my favourite books. I first came across “The Recruit” when I was in year 9, when we read some of it in an English lesson. I don’t remember what we were studying about it, but I loved it! I then remember going to the library with my dad that week to go and borrow it. I read it so quickly and then started reading the rest of the series. I absolutely love it! 😀
I’m giving you the blurb for this book because I don’t want to ruin it too much!
The first title in the number one bestselling CHERUB series! James hits rock bottom before he’s offered a new start in an intriguing organisation …
A terrorist doesn’t let strangers in her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place. The terrorist doesn’t know that one of these kids has bugged every room in her house, made copies of all her computer files and stolen her address book. The kid works for CHERUB.
CHERUB agents are aged between ten and seventeen. They live in the real world, slipping under adult radar and getting information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail.
For official purposes, these children do not exist.
This is a young adult book, but it is great! It’s such a little action and adventure book. I don’t think I’d usually pick up a book like this, but this series is an exception. The characters are so great and relatable (mostly) as well as having a really good plot line. The only thing I noticed this time round is that the mission at the end isn’t actually that long. But as we go through the series we do get some much longer missions, so I think this book is more of an introduction of what is to come.
I really love this book, and it is full of action and adventure! I really recommend it to anyone! 🙂 Don’t let the fact that it is for young adults put you off! 😀
P.S. If you’ve read any of my other reviews of the CHERUB books or Henderson’s Boys stories this is the first one that was written that is linked to all of them! 🙂
