More About the Author

Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He loves Arsenal and watching people fall down holes.

CHERUB: The General follows the main CHERUB agents to Las Vegas in America, where they take part in one of the biggest war games ever. As always Muchamore is on top form, and the characters are well developed, plots are more action packed, and comical as ever.

We find out more about Kazakov, a Ukrainian training instructor whose brutal tactics and war expertise come right into play when he's asked to head an insurgency against an entire American battalion. As battle begins in the world's largest urban training compound, James Adams and his fellow CHERUB agents are on the front line, deploying Kazakov's tactics against the troops. Kazakov thinks he'll have the troops, on the ground and begging for mercy before day two ends; but will it be so easy?

With CHERUB: The General, Muchamore brings forward a new breed of spy book. A book which doesn't need super-human skills, or stunts which are near impossible. Alex Rider bites the dust with a novel which is more realistic than ever before, a gripping and thrilling read which announces Muchamore's arrival onto the number one bestsellers lists and proves that he is a writer who can make teenagers (especially boys) want to read again!

Please don't think that CHERUB is like any other book. It isn't. It's original, it's realistic and it's my favourite!

Once you've read the book, why not head over to the official CHERUB forums? You can discuss what you thought, and even talk to the author of the books, Robert Muchamore, who visits daily! You can also find out about all the CHERUB events and signings, that are happening around the globe when this series goes totally global!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best book in the series. 26 Oct 2013
By Holly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So far I have read all the books in the series and this was by far the worst. I just never seemed to get going and lacked pace in a lot of places. I have now decided to stop reading the series because I feel that, by book 10, it's had it's time. This book felt like the author did not have anything to write about, so he just dribbled on. I think he may be out of ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 5 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
I haven't read all the CHERUB books, but this is very good. (not as good as the recruit and brigands m.c) It's actually the first CHERUB book I got as it looked the best. It starts off with James in the final stages of a mission. When it's over, he and some other CHERUB agents take part in a war games excersise in America. It keeps you reading and it's hard not to laugh when Kazakov (one of the CHERUB instructers) tells an American soldier what people in his country use the American flag for.
A very good book and undeserving of the bad reviews it's been given.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read 31 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback
It is one of the better Cherub books but it is visible that the author is losing his touch. There are only a few more to go and the idea is wearing thin.
