As a dyslexic I have always been reticent to read books. So when we went on holiday to the most sleepiest place in the world, boredom around the pool forced me to pick up my sons copy of the recruit while he was in the pool. 10 days later here I am finishing divine madness, in what can only be described as a minor miracle. 5 books in 10 days; before this the best I achieved was 4 weeks for the curious incident. Just like the stories before this has gripping chapters (that are not too long, which make you think just another chapter before i turn out the light) that make you eager to know whats next. Unlike before, I did get a little bored in the middle third, but the background to mind control techniques, have really given me an insight into how the shopping channels can sting my wife for so much money!
The book made me laugh in some places as an adult so most 12 year olds should find the 'illumination' of James predicament in the septic tank mildely ammusing.
The book is more detailed in plot than some of the others, but not to heavy that it makes it boring.
My only concern would be some of the languague for younger readers but then again my son is only 10 and has read 1 a day also, and as yet is still polite (at least in earshot!).
What is superb about all the series is that if it can get both dyslexics and 10 year old boys to spend hours reading then that has to be a good thing.
Recomended for children and Male adults who just couldnt stand reading anything but the paper (especially ones that read the paper from the sports page first)......you will be rewarded!

Divine Madness is definitely the most action packed and explosive of the current 5 CHERUB books. Muchamore's latest sees James Adams, Lauren Adams and Dana Smith, three undercover teenage spies infiltrate a religious cult known as The Survivors. It had been discovered on a separate mission that The Survivors were brainwashing vulnerable children into working with the Eco-Terrorist organisation: 'Help Earth'. So the three Cherubians task is to infiltrate the cult, they will be subjected to the same brainwashing powers that have over powered many ordinary school children before them. Will the agents training be enough to shield them or will they be manipulated by the cult members?

Divine Madness contains at least twice the thrills as any of the previous books in the series; with superb action sequences filled with suspense and excitement you'll never want to put this book down.

If you've never experienced the gusto of reading a CHERUB book before then you must buy this book now, and once you've finished reading, be sure to relinquish your cravings and buy the rest of the books in the series.

I enjoyed reading this series. Each book was very well written. A really interesting concept. Lots of action in each book and we also get to know all of the main characters really well.. .

If you haven't read the Henderson's Boys books - which tells us how CHERUB came into being - then I suggest you really do. Again an excellent series of books, as long as you can forgive some basic mistakes which with proper research would have made a good series into a great series.

This was the most suspenseful and thrilling of the Cherub books so far. I really like how girls have come to the fore in this series, with the toughest young agents being female. Having said that James, the main protagonist, doesn't have the most respectful attitude towards the girls in his life. They are all onto him though, and I really like how they don't condone or put up with him behaving badly toward them.

James's little sister Lauren has really come into her own as a character. I love the way their sibling relationship is portrayed. In this story they infiltrate a cult, and it's a very scary organisation. I've enjoyed all of the books so far, but this was the first where I really felt worried for the children, also anxious that the adults weren't ahead of the game in the way they normally are, but the plot made sense of that, as the cultists were truly terrifying and ruthless.

The tension really ramps up in this story, and some great characters are introduced, I hope we meet at least a couple of them again. I love Muchamore's characterisation, he makes you warm to people, or really dislike them, even with not a lot of air time. There's an old lady in a nursing home in this who is wonderful, and I also loved Ernie the driver.

I've seen these books criticised as being badly written, especially on goodreads, not as kind as the reviews on here! The one grammar thing that annoys me a lot is a basic error, the use of the possessive apostrophe. It should be James's, not James'. I can't believe this mistake wasn't corrected by an editor. They only need to look at their tube map, St James's Park springs to mind. James is a name, not a plural when the style he uses would apply. This is the only thing that really gets to me though, otherwise I think that the story and characters propel you along to the point where the writing style isn't really an issue.
