5.0 out of 5 stars I say, well done Enid 21 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
God bless you Enid Blyton - I read your stories sitting on a cushion in a back alleyway in Hoon Hay, Christchurch. You helped me escape from a drab world. Hidden tunnels, lost passageways, the whole lichen-coated paraphernalia of forbidden places poured into my head and washed what seemed mundane reality aside. Your writing was repetitive and clumsy and bigoted, your villains were stereotyped, your characters all wooden, but so what? You transported a million children beyond the reach of the grown-up-thou-shalt-not-world.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 28 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another one of my favourites, this. A lonely town on a cut-off hill, an old manor house with secret passages leading to a misty marsh, smugglers, kidnapping - what more could an eight year old, and if I'm honest, a twenty-five year old, want? Ok so you realise the writing perhaps isn't as brilliant as you remember it when you were a child, but the stories are as gripping and crystal-clear as ever. Spiffing. However I found the newly added 'mum' and 'dad' instead of mother and father really jarred in this one as they were mentioned so much. Why on earth did they change words like that? Completely pointless.

Reading this book started me on a long, long, journey with the Famous Five books that, even as a 40-plus year old I still re-visit from time to time. The memory of reading about the secret passages, the marsh, deaf Block, Mr Barling and all the other sinister characters in that most sinister of settings, absolutely fascinated and riveted me to the book and I never looked back. It is still my favourite of them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five go to Smugglers Top 22 Dec. 2013
By Bella
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
George's home gets a hole in the roof as in too bad to live there so they stay at a friend's house called Smugglers Top. There is many secret passages there and Mr Lenoir is not a very nice man at first. George's dad comes to stay and he and the children's friend get kidnapped! How will they save them from Smuggler Mr Barling? With Timmy's dog nose sniffing away they manage to be saved and Mr Barling ( along with a fake deaf spy assistant of My Lenoir and another unnamed accomplice ) the smugglers are captured by the police and not seen for a long while! Eventually the Lenoir family move out of Smugglers Top. Read this incredible story to find how the last smugglers are caught forever

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for car journeys 5 Jan. 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great for car journeys with children. Fairly close to the book. Not sure how easy it would be for younger children to follow if they haven't read the book before listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring's back childhood memories 8 Feb. 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this for Christmas. It is only four stars instead of five because I should have read the small print - the two stories here are dramatised versions - they are not what I would call an Audio Book which is someone actually reading the text of the book (although that does occur in places) - that's why the CDs here are each about an hour long compared to other versions of the same stories that are read by a narrator and are typically about four hours long. Still a joy to listen to though. Five Go to Smugglers Top is my all time favourite Famous Five story. Recommended.
