Cons21 books in the series

Come take a trip down memory lane with me, as I relive the reading habits of my childhood. You see I was quite an early reader and soon outgrew all those Peter and Jane books (does anyone else remember them?) and in order to satiate my ever growing hunger for the written word my parents began to...

“Famous forever”

ProExciting, entertaining

ConsAddictive, only 21 volumes

In an era of computer consoles and expensive gadgets providing entertainment to young children, allow me to site a more educational source of amusement – Enid Blyton’s marvellous collection of stories based around four adventurous children and an intelligent, loyal dog. The Famous Five’s success...

ProA Good Read

ConsA Little Bit Outdated

I discovered Enid Blyton’s magical world of books at a very early age. I remember being only 6 or 7 years old begging my mother to take me to the local library to exchange my famous five book for the next one. By the age of 10 I had undoubtedly read all 21 books in the series and was probably...

I do like Enid Blyton. Especially The Famous Five, but also The Naughty Girl, St Clare's and many others. And I am not ashamed of it. I used to collect them when I was a child. I started when I was 6 and managed to get one almost every month, some extra in Christmas, summer holidays, or birthdays...

Hi! It´s my first opinion at Ciao United Kingdom, so I´m really nervous. Well, I´ve decided to write about the set of books of "The Famous Five" by Enid Blyton because I owe a lot to these books. In fact, I discovered that reading could be a wonderful experience thanks to Enid Blyton´s books...

“The Famous Five”

ProAn enjoyable read

Consnone

'What a jolly nice day, isn't it Timmy? Anyone for some ginger beer!?' The Famous Five are books to grow up with, and books to grow old with. I don't think there was any book more influencial in my childhood, fuelling my desire for adventure and mystery (which, by the way, I never found, but I...

ConsHard to put down

The Famous Five series was one of the first series which I started reading, which seams so long ago. Unfortunately I have not read the entire series but will keep reading until I have done so.

In my opinion, The Famous Five books are some of Enid Blyton's best work. They are full of creative humor and colourful characters. I loved them, I own the entire collection of 26 books and I still go back and read them ever time I feel down or need a pick me up. The books are centered around the...
