A Must Have but Disappointing!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prefects of the Chalet School (Paperback)
Having mananged to buy all available Chalet School books over the years and as this is the last ever book in the series I had to have it but oh how disappointing the story is - the first part of the book just sort of peters out without completing the story and then the characters throughout the book just don't come across as the people we've come to know and love.
The foreword by the publishers throws some doubt on how much was written by EBD before her death and the possibility of the book being completed by her friend/typist. I think this is quite possible as it would account for the woodeness of the characters and lack of story.
If, like me, you have collected the series then I suggest buying this book for completion but if you haven't read any (or many) Chalet School books before then please buy some of the others first.
