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.

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.

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.

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.
