The Recruit by Robert Muchamore Review (CHERUB) 

My first review on my old site was this book so we are back again and seeing what the book has got to give this time around.

CHERUB agents are highly trained, extremely talented–and all under the age of seventeen. For official purposes, these agents do not exist. They are sent out on missions to spy on terrorists, hack into crucial documents, and gather intel on global threats—all without gadgets or weapons. It is an exceptionally dangerous job, but these agents have one crucial advantage: adults never suspect that teens are spying on them.

James is the latest CHERUB recruit. He’s a bit of a troublemaker, but he’s also brilliant. And CHERUB needs him. James has no idea what to expect, but he’s out of options. Before he can start in the field he must first survive one hundred grueling days of basic training, where even the toughest recruits don’t make it to the end.

Taken from Goodreads

What made me buy this book in the first place was the fact that I had never heard of anything like this before and to the 16 year old me it seemed so cool to be a child spy. Now that I am 22 I still wish the same could happen to me and make my childhood so much better.

Robert Muchamore does his job amazingly in making the reader wish that they could lead the life James Adams does. Even though he goes through alot of hardships he knows that the life he is going to start living is the best possible option for him.

The writing throughout this book is what makes the reader keep on reading, they want to know more about the mission James is going on and what he is going to do next. Not only that but if they are like me then they want to know more about the other characters likes Kyle, Kerry and Bruce as each character in this world is so interesting and I want to know the backstory to them all.

Character Development in this book is fantastic we have James who goes from being a 11 year old who struggles to keep his attention on school and not caring about what anyone thought of it and hurting people who annoyed him to someone who passed basic training and wondering on how he can do good.

This for me is the perfect start to a series and it makes me look forward to what the rest of the series has in store.

Hope you enjoyed the review, if so then let me know in the comments below. I’ve been Aaron Morrsi and I’ll see you next time.
