4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the Cherub series
Excellent book! Lots of action, excellent plot, and best of all, James Adams is back as a 21 year-old. It's fascinating to see how he has grown and developed from the 12 year-old recruit and I'm glad that Robert Muchamore has decided to keep him in the story. I agree with comments from other reviewers that there was a little too much of Ryan and Natalka's relationship but...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed.
After the fantastic People's Republic and Guardian Angel, I was definitely expecting a great ending to the Aramov storyline, yet I was left kind of hanging with Black Friday. The main plot of the book only last until about a third of the way through, and after that really isn't as fun and exciting. Yes its awesome that James and Bruce come back, but I disagree with some...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, but lack of structure and other flaws make this book drag down the good sections of this book.,
This review is from: Black Friday (Cherub) (Hardcover)
Black Friday unfortunately follows Scorched Earth with the random events plot and lack of structure. It immediately starts into the `Black Friday' part of the book which feels like we are starting a story from the end and the author has excluded the start and middle of the plot. The `Black Friday' part of the book ends within the first 100 pages if I remember correctly and the rest of the book continues on with the Aramov Clan, so the title is only referring to the very start of the book.
James Adams the protagonist from the 1st CHERUB series makes a return along with some other old characters. I find his return to be a bit confusing, as he is much older now and about four years have passed since Shadow Wave so the old CHERUB characters seem have overtaken the series. I personally feel that they should not have been included in this book but others may think differently, that's just my opinion.
Again, when the story goes to Ryan in Kyrgyzstan, the plot is missing the beginning and starts directly from the middle. Some details are quickly filled in which were not know from People's Republic or Guardian Angel. The events in Kyrgyzstan and later Mexico follow the random event pattern as well.
I still very much enjoyed Black Friday so I don't want to put anyone of reading it but it doesn't match People's Republic or Guardian Angel.

Having now read the whole cherub series and the Henderson's boys books, I am astounded at the well planned and thought of stories. I have enjoyed them immensely and can vividly picture the scenes.
