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 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.
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.
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.
