For those of you who don t know I ABSOLUTELY MUCHA S CHERUB SERIES AND READ LOVED Robert Mucha s Cherub series and read of them super uickly So wanted to Moobli love this just as muchand I just didn tI can still confidently say that I stillove Mucha s writing style and that definitely got me excited when I started reading But it was mainly the story that was The Secret Art of Great Conversation lacking for meTold in a dual third person narrative we follow Marc an orphan who escapes hisifelong orphanage home and Rosie and Paul Clarke siblings who are thrown into their father s secret world as German s advance into France The story is set in France during early World War 2 and I thought this aspect actually helped the narrative whilst not boring me with facts and dates etc I m really not a history fan so I would ve been put off if the war element had been overdone which it wasn t so I was happyBut although the initial story focus seemed promising it didn t deliver much I was expecting something similar to the first Cherub book an introduction into the spy world and getting our protagonists involved in it This felt Comic Print and Theatre in Early Modern Amsterdam like even of an introduction than anticipated though withittle excitement and action I understand that this was the first book in the series so to an extent things needed to be set up but the Cherub series had the same challenge yet the first book was much interesting whilst being shorter So the amount of action was disappointingPersonally I think the dual narrative could be to blame for this I appreciate the author trying something different and I know that both Marc and the Clarke s stories were important but it meant I couldn t get immersed in the action I would ve preferred to stay in Marc s perspective as I found his narrative exciting and conseuently I would ve had a chance to get to know his character I ought to say some good things nowwell I already mentioned the writing style and although I wanted to know him better I thought Marc s character was pretty good And besides everything I ve said I have high hopes for the next book in the series I think Mucha has set up what seems Digital Trust like a promising adventure Having said that I thought the ending was aittle rushed and the epilogue was a massive disappointment I used to Tootles The Taxi And Other Rhymes love the Cherub epilogues so much but this one actually made me uite frustrated if I m honest But wel On My Knees (Stark International Trilogy, leave it at thatI m going to read the next one soonPS Sorry for comparing to the Cherub books so much they are just one of my favourite series and it was hard not to Loved it I fell inove with WW2 Young adult books after reading the Edelweiss Pirates series this series if Hendersons Boys ooks to be as good I will now read the restI really recommend Interesting facts on history and what people or children went through In the novel The Escape by Robert Mucha Hitler army has invaded France and millions of French civilians are eaving the country Amidst the chaos two British children are being hunted by German agents A British spy Charles Henderson tries to reach the children before the Germans do with the help of a French orphan This novel was a well written and never had a dull moment It The Three Elizabeths left you in suspension and had many twist in the plot The chapters were not predictable and it had you guessing what will happen next in the next chapter which every novel should have you doing Mainly the novel put you in the shoes of whoever the main character was at the time The Escape was such a well written novel because iteft you in suspension of what was going to happen in the next chapter Every paragraph you read The Hate U Give left you wondering what the outcome was going to be such as when Marc the 12 year old orphan was beaten so badly by the director of the orphanage and sister Madeline the nun who help out at the orphanage step in and told the director Marc has had enough then the director threaten her that if she did noteave the room and mind her own business she would be fired pg31 This event made you think would she Building Vocabulary Skills leave the poor orphan to get beaten to death or step up and do something The novel was not predictable in anyway because most novel that you read you already know what will happenater on in the book In every chapter that you read it puts you in the shoes of the character that was the focus point at the time In The Escape there was never a moment where you did not stop to think about what that person may be feeling about the situation that they were in One moment where you was put in the eyes of the character was when a German agent had a barrel of a pistol against the bridge of Paul nose and told him Be silent or die pg 38 If anyone was put in that situation what would they do and how would they reaction This novel eft you thinking of different scenarios if you were put the characters shoes In all this has been one of the most exciting novels I have read in months One down side of this novel was that it ha. Summer 1940Hitler's army is advancing towards Paris and millions of French civilians are on the runAmidst the chaos two British children are being ,

D many cut scenes such as THERE WOULD BE AND GOING ON would Be And Going On event going on it would go other character that was in the same position similar to the character it was being based on but at the time it was also irrelevant at the time an event was happening The chapters ended to uick with one event that was happening at time In doing this it made you upset because you get so into that chapter and then all of a sudden it switches to a different character in the story Many chapters should ve continued with multiple chapters instead of switching every chapter In all The Escape was a well written novel that eft you in suspension and had many twist in the plot The chapters were not predictable and it had you guessing what will happen next in the next chapter which every novel should have you doing Mainly the novel put you in the shoes of whoever the main character was at the time This was simply amazingIt begins with Marc 12 years old in a French orphanage forced to work the worst jobs in a farm while the men of the village fight the Germans who are rapidly taking over the countryMeanwhile there s Paul the British boy who along with his sister Rosie has just been pulled out of his French schoolAs Marc escapes the horror of his Cait and the Devil life and Paul and his family run for theirs they come to the notice of the British spy Charles HendersonThis is the first book in the new series by CHERUB author Robert Mucha I have been a CHERUB fan for ages so I ve beenooking forward to this one for a while There s definately some similarities between the two series Marc has some James ike ualities though a very different background there s the sense of risue adventure that runs through the CHERUB books and appeals to 12 year old boys and there s real human ness throughout the bookBut there s differences too I m not sure how correct the history is but it is there and I know kids will soak it up It ends on a cliff hanger rather than wrapping up neatly And there s a sense that it s part of something biggerWhen I heard that there was a new series called Henderson s Boys I was a ittle worried CHERUB has given great female characters ike Lauren Kerry Dana and Zara How would this compare Luckily I found plenty of good female characters the nun who refuses to allow the Orphanage director beat Marc to death Rosie Paul s sister the cafe waitress who helps Marc out the phone operator who risks all to help out and the surprising Yvette I highly recommend this book for around 11 years up time to buy another copy for my classroom I oved this book it was action packed and very realistic to the time period with the things that happen to the characters as the story progresses I An Unofficial Encyclopedia of Strategy for Fortniters liked the characters very much the ones Iiked best were Marc Rosie and Paul they were well developed and so very The Ausar Auset Nutrition Handbook like how children of the time period and their situations made them so very compelling to read about Iiked the story it was well written and a pretty realistic WW2 story with a great action packed story So overall I really enjoyed this book an will be reading of this series soon Robert Mucha is the author of the very popular CHERUB series These are series books about the orphaned minors who are members of CHERUB which stands for Charles Henderson s Espionage
