Book Cover

Today I brought a book review of bestselling The Famous Five Collection 1, a book by famous children writer Enid Blyton. I got this book for my 11 YO son, those who know me also know that my son is an avid reader and I do not miss any opportunity to bringing a new book to his table every month.

The Famous Five Collection 1

Usually, I avoid taking up any thick kind of book for me also prefers the same rule when it comes to gift it to my kiddos. But this a slight change took place and we dived into reading a three books collections under the name of The Famous five Collection 1. This one book consists of three books altogether ie.

1). Five on a treasure island

2). Five go adventuring again

3). Five run away together

So till now, we have completed the first story of the book Five On A Treasure Island. Sharing the review of an amazing tale by Enid Blyton.

Unlike me, if you wish you can also buy these books separately from Amazon.

Review

Julian, Dick, and Anne are invited to spend the summer with their Aunt Fanny and Uncle Quentin at their home, Kirrin Cottage, in the coastal village of Kirrin, when they are unable to go on their normal summer vacation to Polzeath. They also meet their cousin Georgina, a grumpy, unpleasant young lady who tries hard to act like a boy and only goes by the name George. Despite an awkward start, the cousins become firm friends, and George introduces them to her pet dog Timothy (Timmy), who lives in secret with the village’s fisher boy, Alf because George’s parents won’t let her keep Timmy. Soon the siblings figure out there is more to the eye that meets the grumpy George. Can the siblings find a way for George to open up to them?

Hits

I love how it shows a special bonding between a group of people (and a dog!) and you can clearly see this connection shared
between all of them which begins to grow with time! I also like how you can see how George goes from a grumpy,
moody person to someone who is cheerful, kind, and caring!

The book is very beautifully written because it features a ton of ways that make the reader feel an emotion, or just make them
interested in what theyโ€™re reading in general! It also leaves no plot holes that make the book confusing for the reader.

Miss

The book does a pretty โ€œmehโ€ job at elaborating further on tiny details but at the end that is fine because this book is still getting its message across, but it does make the text a bit wobbly at times.

Verdict

I would certainly recommend this book to other readers out there! It is a masterpiece; in my opinion, it is a 4/5. It does a particularly decent job getting its point across but in the end, some things seem misplaced, or grammatically incorrect sometimes and you just have to put your head to it. But overall, it is an exceptionally good book, and you should definitely check it out and see the other books written by Enid Blyton.
