This book is as good as the rest in Elinor Brent-Dyer's 'Chalet School' Series. It is a good read for young and old alike, if you collect Chalet School books then it definately is a 'must have'. If you haven't read any other Chalet School books then 'Chalet School in the Oberland' is definately a good one to start with.
The chalet School in the Oberland is different to the others in the series in many respects, for one thing it is about older pupils - this book being set in the new 'finishing' branch of the chalet school - which never has been in the previous books. As it is about older girls there are obviously different problems to deal with which make 'The Chalet School in the Oberland' an exciting read, very different to the others in the series.

The Chalet School in the Oberland is Number 26 in the series and this version is unabridged. It's slightly different from the other Chalet School books as the focus is entirely on the new 'finishing branch' of the school. Though we follow the different activities expected of older girls, many of the characters are familiar. Nell 'Bill' Wilson is Head Mistress at the school with Peggy, Dickie and their friends learning various lessons and having fun.
I really enjoyed it and it fills an important gap in my collection.

I have been trying to obtain a copy of this book in the series for many years, as I made the mistake of lending the copy I had to some one, who to this day, has yet to return it. The details in this are occasionally mentioned in other books in this series, so reading the deeper details on this part of the series is very interesting, as you can see how the older girls are growing up and becoming woman.
