5.0 out of 5 stars Another pulse-pounding, unputdownable book 27 Sep 2007
Because Robert Muchamore's language is simple and clear, reviewers tend to ignore him. But his writing always puts you firmly in a place and time. Without resorting to long descriptive passages he makes you taste, hear, smell, feel and especially see what's going on around. And what a lot happens! In this book about rival gang wars in Luton, (no false glamour with Muchamore), there is a real sense of danger. The two things I like most about Muchamore's books, apart from the clarity of writing, are that his stories feels absolutely real, and that you never know what's going to happen next. I also like the strong sub-plot about 15 year old James' growing maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Dogs - Muchamore Turned Up To 11 28 Sep 2007
I got hold of a preview copy of the book and thought I'd share my views on it.

This book isn't just Muchamore turned up to 11. The whole series is completely tuned in to what the younger generation wants to read, it seems that Muchamore has managed to capture it in a book so fast paced and adrenalin filled that once you've started reading, you won't want to stop.

I won't tell you too much about the plot however as per usual with a CHERUB book you have just more than one storyline to keep you the story thrilling and the book sees many of the main characters grow up, as well as some of the background details be built up helping you gain a real sense of the CHERUB world.

For the first time we see a gadgets master in the book, although he isn't supplying the agents with gameboys crammed with a smoke bomb and bug finder. Knives, miniature guns and nanotube fabric are the order of the day - this is certainly not Alex Rider. We're no longer talking of kids who can't handle weapons and who certainly can't get injured of hurt.

Mad Dogs is certainly brilliantly crafted and is a superb read. It could be quite controversial as some aspects of the book are more adult than child, however any fan of the series and new readers alike will love the book for what it is.

A true five star read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Dogs- Another fantastic read 6 Oct 2007
Since buying the first book of the CHERUB series, ive absolutely fell in love with it!
Muchamores writing is exciting and well paced and you are bored. Indeed, when i put the book down in order to go out, i would often think about how much i wanted to come back and read it.

Whereas i've found the CHERUB books to drop in style during the middle of the series, this book is certainly one of the best of the series, along with The Recruit and Class A.

A must read for teens and adults alike- you'd be mad not to read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!! : - ) 29 Jan 2008
By Emma
i am a MASSIVE fan of the CHERUB books. i think mad dogs is the best book so far. there is loads of action and you notice how James has matured through the series. The CHERUB series is about teenage spies who go on undercover missions. It all sounds really sad and but it's not.I think this book is mainly aimed at age 12 - 17 but it is very grippng and i would strongly recomend it.But this book is DEFINATELY not suitable for anyone under the age of 10.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best CHERUB book so far!!! 8 Nov 2007
Amazing,this book was the best book out of the CHERUB series so far. Although I would suggest that you are over eleven before you read this or any other book from the CHERUB series so far.
Thanks Robert Muchamore for another brilliant CHERUB book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the series and better than Alex Rider 22 Dec 2008
This book is by far the best of the cherub series. I love the action chapters and pretty much every chapter in the book. There is no dull moment. One thing Muchamore does so well is that he keeps all the heart pumping edge of your seat chapters, just like Alex Rider. But they are realistic. I am a huge Alex Rider fan and Anthony Horowitz fan. Two of my favorite series' is Alex Rider and The Gatekeepers. But Alex Rider gets a little crazy, like a knife fight in space. Cherub keeps it very believable and has the same amount of action as Rider. Also he keeps the books fresh. One of two problems I have with Alex Rider is it's always busting someone whos going to kill a ton of people with a bomb or clones or a hotel or something but cherub keeps it fresh. One time it's a eco-terrorist group, then a drug dealer, then a illegal wepons dealer, then a murderer, then a colt, then a animal rights group, and gangs, and terrorists blowing up planes. Muchamore keep 'em coming
