The Famous Five are among Enid Blyton's best-loved creations and countless children have gone adventuring with them since the publication of Five on a Treasure Island in , the first of twenty-one full-length adventures and numerous short stories. Armed with maps, torches, packets of sandwiches and a plentiful supply of ginger-beer, Julian, Dick, Anne, their tomboy cousin George Georgina by rights and Timmy the dog like nothing better than to spend their holidays hiking and biking, camping and exploring by themselves, invariably falling into adventure. Friends like Jo the gypsy girl, young Tinker Hayling, Sooty Lenoir, and even George's scientist father Uncle Quentin to the others , often get caught up in the strange goings-on too. And what thrilling places they visit and discover — Kirrin Island, Smuggler's Top, Owl's Dene, the lighthouse at Demon's Rocks and farms, castles, caves and secret passages galore. Whether they're outwitting thieves, smugglers or kidnappers, seeking hidden treasure or encountering spook trains, the Five's courage and determination always wins through!
Most stories these days are heavy on dialogue, while this story didn't have much dialogue at all.
And on top of that, the characters seemed to eat all the time. That said, you're probably wondering if I liked anything about this book. Why, yes I did! Five on a Treasure Island was very easy to read. Despite all the telling and the constantly hungry characters, I didn't suffer from reluctance to continue reading. Blyton has written characters that rang true for me.
There's Julian, the oldest, who is the voice of reason and the peacemaker. There's George, the lonely tomboy, Dick, the brave one who is always hungry, and Anne, the youngest who blurts out secrets when she gets nervous. I enjoyed reacquainting myself with Five on Treasure Island, and I think young readers will enjoy reading it too. I've not finished this yet, but must comment on the lousy Kindle formatting. There are no paragraph indents, and codes appear at chapter breaks, which have no extra spacing from the text preceding them and sometimes even run into the last sentence of the previous chapter.
There was one spot so far that might have been a picture caption, appearing from out of nowhere. As for content again, I have not finished it yet , it's a pleasant enough, quick-moving children's book that shows its age.
Very young readers will get into it. Added after I finished: The book developed into an exciting plot. I certainly kept reading, and any kids would be enthralled at what happens.
I cringed near the end when the cousin's mother pronounced that her heroic actions made her almost as good as a boy or something to that effect , but this was written in another age. Parents should explain to their kids the girl's situation in those days, and why things have changed though they're not anywhere near perfect now.
This is a great book, but it is a terrible way to read it. The only reason I didn't rate it five stars, is because of the quality. The quality was terrible!
There were spelling errors, and capitalization was rarely used. But the book itself is great. I love it so much, it never goes too over your head, and at the same time, it's hard to keep up with the Famous Five. The details Enid Blyton added made you feel like you were a part of the book.
I would recommend it to almost everyone. But the quality I read it in, I would recommend to no one.
Our ten year old grandson loved this so much and has continued reading the series. We are on book four now actually. However this series does have a TON of strange typo-style anomalies in it so if it was re-done in the digital format correctly it would be perfect. So far it's been worth the trouble to deal with it though! Many years ago, when I was but a mere lad, I became very familiar with the adventures of Julian, Dick, Anne, George, and Timmy the dog.
The Famous Five were my companions as I grew up, and this book is where their story begins. If I had an island of my own, I would call it "Kirrin Island". Of course, I have no island of my own, which makes my observation entirely rhetorical.
I don't even have a dog, but if I did, I would likely consider naming it "Timmy". Tubby" Rubadub Mysteries. Thank you, Enid Blyton. See all reviews. What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
