The General by Robert Muchamore Review

"Riots, robbery & the biggest ever training exercise.

The world's largest urban warfare training compound stands in the desert near Las Vegas. Forty British commandos are being hunted by an entire American batallion.

But their commander has an ace up his sleeve: he plans to smuggle in ten CHERUB agents and fight the best war game ever."

Hahaha. Okay, The General is probably the most humorous and serious ones of them all. This time, James Adam and company are up against American soldiers. I'm not kidding. American soldiers. Like fully grown soldiers. With paintballs. And paint grenades. It is still amusing, though. James almost got what he deserves, but unfortunately, he didn't.

Okay, I'm going to say it. His balls were almost blown off by paint grenades. Well, technically, it wouldn't be blown off but it would hurt a lot. And I think he totally deserves it. Right in the balls. He is an idjit. 

(I got to stop watching Supernatural). 

(Note to self: Supernatural is very awesome and Deanmon is amazing).

Okay, James Adam is his usual James Bond. Young James Bond. Like all swagger and trying to bang anything that moves. Or hit on anything that moves. Either way can do. All they need is to give him a gun (Bond's gun, of course), a suit (black or gray will do), a car (with a lot of gadgets, but a van would work too), and two women on his arms. There you have 007. He has everything but the accessories. This is why I like Lauren better. She never tried hitting on a girl. 

Lauren Adam, on the other hand, has a better heart and a good cool head. I like her so much better than James. At least, she has more common sense than him. And what she did with the reporters is really amusing.

Not going to tell, though. Spoilers.

Overall, The General killed it. Especially at the end of the book. And I mean the book, not the person (oh, yeah, it is a person). I think the best parts are a few quotes ("I'm a Ukraine, not a Russian") and some great ending words. Dialogue. Loved it. Just loved it. Quotes and dialogue. They are so wonderful in this book. 

And I definitely can't wait to read the next book.

Rating: Four of Five
