      SCHOOL FOR SPIES!Pretty awesome, right? I thought so, too, when I first read the blurb. It deeply befuddled me to see the low amount of readership it had, if we compare to the Alex Rider or even The Gallagher Girls series one, but oh well, we can’t make sense of every single thing.But now I see why or, at least, have a good theory. This is a good story and it exploits a very good concept. The fact that the level of experience is determined by t-shirt colors makes the school seem even more spec [...]

      EDIT:The more I think about this book, the more I hate it. I keep on realizing things that I wasn't aware of when writing this review. Therefore, I've decided to bump the rating down to one. The original review is below.--After debating whether to give this one or two stars, I decided on two. I didn't necessary enjoy the book, but I didn't not like it either.The basic premises of this book is great. A secret spy organization that only employs kids to gather information. The beginning of the nove [...]

Cherub is a organization in the UK that takes kids and turns them into agents.They send them on top secret missions that M15 or the police don't kno [...]

      Dear God, how is this book not a joke? How on earth did this get published?I demand to know who encouraged Robert Muchamore to publish this. Please step forward and explain yourself. Listen, everybody, I really wanted to love this book, I did. A young adult novel about spies who belong to an organization that doesn't exist? YES PLEASE! This is my genre, you don't even understand. But really, the writing is unbearable to the point where you have to put down the book and take a breather in order t [...]

      [wrote in Portuguese] Opinião no The Mistery's Garden: Opinião | O Recruta, de Robert Muchamore Há já algum tempo que tinha a intenção de ler O Recruta, de Robert Muchamore, autor da afamada série CHERUB. Esta coleção foi uma grande aposta da Porto Editora e recebeu críticas positivas tanto de jovens como de adultos. O maior elogio é comum a muitos dos leitores: tal como Harry Potter (embora só comparável a uma escala muito mais reduzida), conseguiu inserir o gosto pela leitura em m [...]

      It is books like this that makes me wish that gave you the choice to put your stars in negative. It's that bad. Seriously, I have cousins between 5 and 10 years old who could write a more enthralling story. I read this book on the insistance of a friend. I had to read the first to cherub books and he had to read Eragon. I got the worse deal. By far.The setting of this book is alright; It is about a boy who is adopted into a community of child spys, where he undergoes training a goes on a missio [...]

      I had pretty high hopes for this book because the kids at school, especially the year 7 and 8 students, LOVE this series. Like, they're aaaaaaaaaaalways out on loan. And I've had multiple students tell me that these books are incredible. So I finally picked one up. And I suspect I'm at least 20 years too old for this series, because this book wasetty effing bad. The basic plot is that an eleven year old boy lives with his younger sister and morbidly obese mother, who runs a shoplifting ring. Whe [...]

      5/5 stars"This is tough, but CHERUB's are tougher"Funny, action-packed, heart-warming and cool, an amazing spy novel about a secret organization, consisting of kids. Do not let this fool you, there is NOTHING funny about being a spy in there, especially considering the basic training. The first book didn't have that much of adventure because our character had to go through basic training first but I am pretty sure the next books are gonna leave me breathless.Let's talk about the characters/ships [...]

      When my friend reccomended this book to me, I thought it would be just another author trying to rip off Anthony Horowitz with a british-teenage-spy book. What I got surprised me. This book is fresh. It’s new. It’s style is completely original. Robert Muchamore writes with a style that makes you read till you notice the sun is coming up the next morning. The intrigue that this author generates is through the roof. The recruit is so fresh, they could sell it in the produce section of the groce [...]

      Hard to put down this one! I wish James would grow up. I really like Lauren but she can be a bit annoying

    11. claire elise on said:

      Don't get me wrong- the story was good. Plot kept me interested and everything I think the greatest issue was I was the wrong audience. Things I didn't like~1. The kid was 11. Actually, except for like two other minor characters, everyone was under the age of 12-13. And if that isn't enough, they're way more worldly than preteens. They're cursing, drinking, smoking, fighting, partying, and overall way too mature in adult situations to be taken seriously as little kids.2. The actual mission didn' [...]

      Who wanted to go to Hogwarts or become a wizard after reading the Harry Potter series, or go to camp Half-Blood after reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series? Well the The Recruit by Robert Muchamorewill leave you wanting to be a spy at CHERUB. The series is in third person but is centered around James Choke/Adams a teenager in England. Your going to want to use all the technology they use, be friends with all the students at CHERUB and take part in all the adventures. Most of the boo [...]

      2.75 stars. James Choke is a typical 11-year old boy, playing video games and barely passing school because he can't be bothered. When his criminal mother dies, he is placed in a children's home, and falls in with a bad crowd. He is then recruited for a children's spy school, the basis for which is pretty thin, where he undergoes extensive training and a grueling test of endurance to finally get assigned on a mission to stop a terror plot. I thought his friendships at CHERUB school were solid, e [...]

      James era um rapaz normal, mas depois de um acontecimento inesperado foi "contratado" por uma associação chamada CHERUB. Depois de passar cem dias de tortura num ginásio (que mais parecia uma base militar) conseguiu passar nos testes da Recruta. Depois de completar a sua primeira missão com muito sucesso recebeu uma t-shirt azul-escura (as t-shits representam os níveis em que eles estão).Um livro fantástico e cheio de aventura.

      Cherub agents are kids ages 10-17 and are trained to be spies to infiltrate criminal organizations that have eluded the M15 for years. The reason? Adults never suspect that kids are spying on them. James Choke is a twelve year old boy who tends to get in quite a bit of trouble. He lives with his mom and his sister Lauren. But James isn't an ordinary boy, he has a keen sense for math. He can solve complex math problems in a matter of seconds. James gets into a bit of trouble at school, includin [...]

    16. Nicholas H on said:

      Most of the time when a criminal suspects someone is a spy it is usually an adult. So what if the spies weren’t adults, instead they were teens. These teens would set up secret surveillance cameras and spy equipment around someone’s house. For James Choke this is regular life. James works for the secret agency called Cherub.The Recruit by Robert Muchamore is exactly what people wouldn’t think. It opens up minds to what could be, but nobody knows. James is a teen that seems to get into trou [...]

      My ReviewOne of the quirkiest, most amazing books I've ever read!I decided to read this book because it was all in the rage, everyone was reading it last year. Well, i must sound like an old guy talking about something that was cool from last year but the book hasn't changed, its still as awesome as it had ever been.This book completes the "A book with a male main character" category on my bingo board. Although this category had already been completed before.It was already filled by "The Hobbit" [...]

      I decided to read this book because a lot of the people in my class had suggested it for their book speech. I thought it was a genre I liked and had a good plot, so I started reading the book.Something I like in the story is the humor they put into it, such as when Mr Large set the kids their last test within the hundred days. The test was to put their hands in a bucket with a poisonous jellyfish and to not put their hands in the antidote for a certain amount of time. The test turned out to be a [...]

      Cherub the recruit is an amazing book. It takes place in London England. The beginning starts off with the main character James at school. A girl starts teasing him about his "mum." From here, everything goes down hill. After it is all said and done James is running away from his school and will probably be expelled. He comes home to his mom and step dad who are not sober. They tell him to go and get his sister from school. When James gets home his mum is dead in her sleep. From here James his m [...]

      I loved this book, but it's not for everyoneRST off please note there will be typos. My library book doesn't look like a first run (it has a book #2 preview) and the titles are in a weird typeface. (Though this would probably be blamed on the Simon Pulse (read:american publishers) people, judging from the little copyright etc. page in front)The book is actually slow paced and if you don't find yourself identifying yourself with any of the characters it will be a tough sell as a good book. So jus [...]

      Okay so I enjoyed this book very much! To be honest I could almost say that I loved it, surprisingly! I was not expecting to like this so much!!! And, right now, I still don't know if I should give this a 4 out of 5 stars or if I should give it a 5 out 5 starsIn the beginning, I was a little bit sceptical about this book and until the first 100 pages I wasn't really sure if I liked it or not. James pissed me off, sometimes and there were some moments that didn't catch my attention as much as I w [...]

      i chose to read this book after a friend recommended it to me, he said it was very goodis book fits under 'a book with a male main character'the recruit is the first book in the cherub series which is about young children spying on adults that they suspect are criminals and aim to uncover more about that particular person. this book is about the main character, James Adams getting recruited into cherub hence the name. The whole concept of the cherub series is good because like the slogan of the [...]

    24. Scottsdale Public Library on said:

      One reviewer describes this book, the first in its series, as “fresh and grimy.” Somehow, that’s spot-on. James, newly orphaned and living in a home for young reprobates, is being watched. His particular talents and resourcefulness—even used unconstructively, peg him as the right material for CHERUB, a secret agency that trains children as spies for the British government. With tough urban teens who speak as crudely as you’d expect (in British street-speak), grueling boot-camp sequenc [...]

      This book is a great book for teenagers who love reading books with suspense, action, comedy etc. It has an extremely engaging plot and story line and you are able to really feel the characters emotions and really feel like you are a part of the whole story.

    26. Scott Manderson on said:

      I thought this book was really enjoyable to read and I am going to carry on reading this series because I think it is the right books for me. I also really enjoyed this book and it got me so excited for the next book because I wanted to see what happens to James after his mum passed away.

    27. Lady Poppy on said:

      I really liked this one! It's similar to Alex Rider, and even though I don't remember the other series very well, my rating says I like this one better, so I'm gonna trust it.

    28. Lindsey Smiles on said:

      I'm finished and the ending was entertaining but very strange. I think it would have been a good story if it had ending before the 3/4th mark.

    29. Diana-Katry Kornis on said:

      Underaged spies, torturous training and first missions ;) It wasn't exactly what I was expecting but I liked it and I pretty much read most of the book in one night :) Are 12-year-old kids really that mature? Or makes the tough past and the spy training them more mature? Well, whatever the case, the characters act almost like 20-year-olds :D
