Publisher's Summary

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 a kid has bugged every room in her house, cloned the hard drive on her PC, and copied all the numbers in her phone 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.

The narrator is fantastic

I read this book a while back when I was much younger. The narrator nailed his performance, making my second time with the book even better than the first.

Loved the narrator!

Listened to this book with my three kids aged 16, 14 and 12. We all enjoyed it and particularly enjoyed the narrator's performance.

Enjoyed this Second Book

Great continuation of the Cherub series, not too violent and limited course language.

The story revolves around a Cherub mission in England involving a drug dealer and the same cast of characters that I enjoyed from the The Recruit, came alive in this book too.

Who would believe that kids are trained as spies?

If you could sum up Cherub: The Recruit in three words, what would they be?

uplifting, exciting, tough.

What other book might you compare Cherub: The Recruit to, and why?

Higher Institute of Villainous Education, although "HIVE" is training kids for future villainy, not to protect the country.

What does Simon Scardifield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

All the characters are distinguishable either because of different accents, or different tones he uses. He is a great reader.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Who would believe that kids are trained as spies?

Any additional comments?

Brilliant "boy come good" story where a talented, but troubled 11 year old finds his place in the world, and learns to use his talents in a positive way and stops getting in trouble with the police.

Best teen spy story ever.

What made the experience of listening to Cherub: The Recruit the most enjoyable?

I loved how its all the time intresting. There is not 5 minutes of story that you are not intrested of lissening.

Who was your favorite character and why?

James, I cant say that I totally like the guy, because sometimes he can be real brick. But hes intresting, you want him to be a good guy, and sometimes he fails.

Which character – as performed by Nathan Stewart-Jarret – was your favourite?

I liked all characters. I had read the book before and now when I lissend it I didnt feel once that "this character shouldnt sound like this". So i think it was very well read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I didnt have the time, but I did lissen it when ever possible. It ended too soon.

Any additional comments?

Love the book. So sad that you dont have the othere episodes of this series.

Fantastic book

Fantastic narrator, brilliant story, looking forward to the second book in the series! It would appeal to fans of the Alex Rider series, and James Bond!

Top notch.

It may just be me, but I've always longed for more on campus segments. This book probably has the most however I do like reading about the lives of the cherubs. Though i would definitely recommend this story to anyone.

overall pretty good

I remember reading this book when it first came out as a child. it's just as good now. Well paced and interesting. The narrator did a good job, but I found it difficult to enjoy simple due to my preconceived notions of what the characters sounded like. I highly recommend this audiobook.
