This book is mass market paperback rubbish. It is full of one-dimensional stereotyped characters, soft porn, sexism, bullying and gratuitous violence.
I can't see why anyone would want to read this kind of trash when there is such a plethora of great literature available. This kind of dated, "rah rah rah" British stiff upper lip writing should be relegated to the annals of history with all the other boy's own books of the past.
I can think of many other books for teenagers with the same theme that are more meaningful, have well-drawn characters and are infinitely better written.
I guess Robert Muchamore is a phase that will disappear in time.

An excellent introduction to the series. Full of boys own type action but with a bit more depth than these type of stories from a generation ago. Good for boys but excellent female characters - thoughtfully written but plenty of action. Very skilled work from the author...... ( )

The British secret service is about to discover that kids working undercover will help to win the war. For official purposes, these children do not exist.

It's a good book but the ending's a real let down because it's been written as part of a series, it would be better as the ending of a chapter rather than a book. ( )
