1.0 out of 5 stars Outdated and Boring Sept. 27 2002
By pdeldc
Perhaps this novel might have nostalgic appeal to adults who read these books as kids in the 50's when they first came out, but kids today are far too sophisticated to take Blyton's books too seriously. The characterizations and storyline are largely outdated to modern kids. Also, they will not identify with a lot of the British idiom the characters speak. Even the mindset and worldview of these characters (who even by 50's standards must have been living under a rock in some fairy land), are laughably quaint. The writing itself is passable at best. Blyton's pacing is painfully slow and she knows little about building suspense. If adults want a trip down memory lane while reading "safe" suspense to their kids, try "The Hardy Boys" instead. The concept is the same, but the writing is better and American kids will identify with the material much more easily -- even if they still find the characters too scrubbed up.

5.0 out of 5 stars an enchanting adventure for boys and girls alike May 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
George and Ann begin this adventure alone. They go off camping and are later joined by Julian and Dick. Of course, in no time at all they are deep in an adventure. This book has it all - hidden passageways, danger, excitement, etc. I just love all of Enid Blyton's books. They are so exciting and really fire the imagination. I read them as a child and couldn't get enough. How happy I was to find them still in print through Amazon.com. Now my children are reading them too. My son, who isn't much into reading in general, has really enjoyed them. This one arrived yesterday, I read the entire thing, and I know he will love it too. How can you miss with such brave characters, and secret passageways!

I have loved every single Famous Five book...have read all of them when I was little. I think all of Enid Blyton's books are great to grow up with, I hope kids still continue to read her books and continue to love them.
5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite book as a child March 6 2014

As a child in England, reading the Famous Five books was one of my most vivid memories. I would get completely involved in the stories and characters. I bought my 9 yr old granddaughter two books at Christmas. To my delight she loved the books for exactly the same reasons I had. She asked me to get her some more....................

I bought the entire set of the Famous Five Kindle e books. It has been a lovely walk down nostalgia lane. I wish the Mystery series and the Barney series would be released as well.
