Refreshing Cut Above The Rest
on 27 February 2007
This book actually made me go through so many emotions whilst reading: Rage, Happiness, Frustration, Sadness, Shock and more I shall have to list the next time I read again.
It's so refreshing; I've not read a book that has ever these topics before. Its unique, its original, its fantastic. The Fall is well researched, has lots of character development AND action whilst being injected with humour that left me in stitches for 10 minutes at a time. It really is a rollercoaster of different thoughts and feelings. It really is not what I expected; It's so much better.
The missions discussed and the Campus events were, in my opinion, the perfect length. If I had to pick a fault, the bit with Meryl on James birthday was fantastic but the race itself dragged out a tad.
With human trafficking being a major topic at the moment in the news, it's a great coincidence for readers who read about it now and what Lauren went through. It's put in an understandable perspective that pulls more emotions as the reader-character ties are reinforced at the beginning.
If you were to start off with this book, you can't help but fall in love with at least one character and hate another because the description and effort taken in each one is detailed enough to make a decent judgement on them.
Without trying to reveal the plotline, the James' mission in Russia- Awesome. It actually showed his training come into practice, like Mr Muchamore explicitly writes about the pigeons.
This book definitely ties everything in together. Kind of like a pretty present with The Fall being the bow.
Wicked stuff. I cannot wait until CHERUB: Mad Dogs, which is the next instalment in the CHERUB Series and I love the new style and ambience Mr Muchamore creates with his books.
