A terrorist doesn't let strangers in her flat because they might be undercover police or intelligence agents, but her children bring their mates home and they run all over the place.

Higher Institute of Villainous Education, although "HIVE" is training kids for future villainy, not to protect the country.

What does Simon Scardifield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Brilliant "boy come good" story where a talented, but troubled 11 year old finds his place in the world, and learns to use his talents in a positive way and stops getting in trouble with the police.

Best teen spy story ever.

What made the experience of listening to Cherub: The Recruit the most enjoyable?

I loved how its all the time intresting. There is not 5 minutes of story that you are not intrested of lissening.

Who was your favorite character and why?

James, I cant say that I totally like the guy, because sometimes he can be real brick. But hes intresting, you want him to be a good guy, and sometimes he fails.

Which character – as performed by Nathan Stewart-Jarret – was your favourite?

I liked all characters. I had read the book before and now when I lissend it I didnt feel once that "this character shouldnt sound like this". So i think it was very well read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I didnt have the time, but I did lissen it when ever possible. It ended too soon.

Any additional comments?

Love the book. So sad that you dont have the othere episodes of this series.
