    1. Jess, my 7-year old girl, gives it 5 stars.Comments while reading:"Georgina is a girl but she wants to be called 'George'. Is she a tomboy?""Who says that boys never cry? The boys in my class cry. A lot!""Uncle Quentin is scary!""George is like a volcano --- she's always angry or is about to get angry.""How can a kid own an island?""Awww, Tim is so cute!""Why can't Anne keep a secret? She's such a baby!""I like it when George took an axe and wrecked the bad guys' motorboat. She's so fierce!""I w [...]

    2. I remember putting this book back down in 2006 because it was "too big" to read. The number of pages of Secret Seven were tiny in comparison to this one.I was reading a book this summer and not liking the immoral personalities present in there.Guess, you sometimes need a break from these grown-up melodramas. And who better to go to than Enid?The treasure hunting and ship wreck brought me back the memories of why I loved the Secret Seven. George and Tim are a delight to watch together. Coming tog [...]

    3. Sadly I gave all my Famous Five books away during my teenage years. However the other day I realised I missed Julian, George, Dick, Anne and Timmy so wanted a catch up. The only edition I could get on Kindle was this one - and it was a slight disappointment. There are no 'lashings' of anything, no 'mummy and daddy', no 'golly's. It has been rewritten to suit a modern children's audience, and I must say I deeply disagree with this choice. When I was an eight year old and reading these books for t [...]

    4. This is one that lured me into the reading world. I still remember it like yesterday; it was during my 4th grade summer vacations. I was down with high fever and was crying for days for missing out on my yearly trip.So to pacify my tantrums , i was gifted this book. Ah! the mysterious world of Julian, Anne, Dick and my favorite George made me forget my pain and i ended up reading the whole series volume in that summer. Thanks Enid! for bringing me to a world of limitless imagination.

    5. Sometimes you read a book and wonder how didn't you get to read this one in your childhood while everyone about your age did.Five on a Treasure Island, you are certainly the first one I read after a considerably long time, but your next parts sure are not going to be. Here I come.

    6. I had the opportunity to read the whole Famous Five series during my school vacations when i was an eleven year old and 'Five on a Treasure Island' was the first book that introduced me to the magical writings of Enid Blyton. It was during those school vacations that i chanced upon such highly addictive children's series like Secret Seven (from the same author), Nancy Drew, Dana Girls Mysteries, Hardy Boys etc. Hunting down and gobbling up each of those titles was a pure delight.All the titles i [...]

    7. Back when I was a kid, Enid Blyton was MY author. Reading her books - and I read dozens of them - taught me, not to read, but to actually ENJOY reading. I remember feeling how it was a magical experience and twenty years later I still feel that when sitting down with a book today.I've been wanting to catch up with Blyton as an adult, to see how her work stands up, and I finally got my chance with this handsome hardback. I remember that the Famous Five and the Secret Seven weren't my favourite of [...]

    8. I read the whole series (all 21 books) when I was about 13; those were the first books I read in English. I loved them, both the stories, the mystery and the writing. I liked the relationships (that was the time when I dearly wished I had siblings), the companionship and the good old picnicks in the woods/fields :)Looking back, I don't quite agree with the view of girls/women presented. Still, at that time, while feeling most kinship with Anne and being drawn to Georgina, it didn't matter to me. [...]

    9. Ένα μικρό, μονοήμερο διάλειμμα από την ''κανονική'' αναγνωστική μου ροή, με ένα βιβλίο από την παρέα που μικρός είχα λατρέψει. Το διάβασα χαμογελώντας.

    10. I loved this and I knew I would as it's a childhood re-read.I had forgotten a lot of the details and this book still had me at the edge of my seat at the age of 21. I just love it. I recommend you read it, even if you think you've outgrown it! A classic, fun, tense, warming, summery read.I feel at home reading it.

    11. (note: please forgive any grammar mistakes in this review, english is not my first language, i wrote this as a part of my writing practice to learn english)I awfully jealous toward people who got an opportunity to read this series when they were still a little kid. I found and download this little treasure weeks ago for free from a website that i forgot its name, but my long to-read list prevent me to read this book.Reading this book make me want to run to the nearest super market and buy a time [...]

    12. There was a time when Enid Blyton books were the only books I’d read. I’m glad I grew out of this, although the woman’s written over 600 books, so I’d have been right for a few more years, even if I hadn’t grown out of my obsession!I know I was reading the Famous Five books when I was in grade 1, and I know that my mum had quite a collection, however the only 2 I can remember now are Five on a Hike Together and Five Go Down to the Sea - perhaps these were favourites that I re-read over [...]

    13. MY FIRST BOOK.Não me lembro de ser nada de especial, mas foi com este livro que a minha aventura literária começou. Os cinco foram os primeiros que me deixaram entrar num mundo distante. Não eram aquelas histórias de princesas que me faziam ver. Não eram já as infantilidades de livros para crianças. Tinha oito anos, quando adoeci e a minha mãe começou a ler-me esta aventura, em voz alta. A minha curiosidade era cada vez maior, a minha mãe tinha cada vez menos tempo. Por fim, não resi [...]

    14. I dont know how to apply a star rating to a series of books that encouraged a generation of readers to read ALL the books in a series and then branch out into increasingly complex Series and stand alone books. My reading career began with the Noddy series. Scratch almost any author writing in English, and Enid Blyton (and very probably The Famous Five will be there). On that alone it earns a five.But read the stories and you find template based plots, stereotypical characters, racism, sexism and [...]

    15. I really like this book. It makes me want to go on holiday and explore old ruins. It's a really good adventure story and I like the characters. My favourite is George because she is bold and brave and I like her dog Timmy, he's funny. I think girls would like this story most but boys might like it too.

    16. the emptiness you feel when you realize that তিন গোয়েন্দার 'জিনার সেই দ্বীপ'is actually a copy of this book !!

    17. The Five books are always my favorites. They were some of my first novels I enjoyed reading. Got them all completed in no time long long time ago. Got every piece of the whole series as my precious collection, yet unfortunately I lost them in a way or so. They ain't cheap to get for sure, if you wish to collect them again in recent days. So, I guess I really should give up that idea. I am trying to make my consolation through ebook. Not getting the same joy from reading a real book, but hey it i [...]

    18. Edited 8/22/17.A friend asked me about Enid Blyton, and I remembered reading this book recently and being uncomfortable with its character portrayals. So here I was looking at my review, and honestly, it's probably one of the worst reviews I've ever written. (*Hint: Some of it was about George's gender identity, and I wanted to say something I was convinced Blyton didn't do well, but it came out being completely tone deaf. So I'm no good at gender issues either, mercifully I'm not a published au [...]

    19. Ah, the Famous Five! Talk about your blasts from the past. I haven't read these books since my age was still in single digits.Re-reading them as an adult, their appeal is their innocence and the joy of recalling how I used to think my friends and I could have adventures just like the Famous Five! This book brought a big smile to my face.There's another level of enjoyment to be had reading this book as an adult with a twisted sense of humour, as hardly a page goes by without some kind of unintend [...]

    20. I loved this series as a child - the characters, the adventures, the mysteries to solve and the food was fascinating to someone growing up away from England. But I recently re-read them with my children and found them sadly dated. My young boys liked the plots but the attitudes and values of the characters were vastly different to theirs today.

    21. Pure magic, still love it to this day. Still remember it to this day.I think it is timeless, even anyone reading this today wouldn't feel that the story is set in the mid 1940srticularly the end was thrilling.

    22. This is SO interesting upon a reread! I read this series many, many times growing up. It's like Nancy Drew or Hardy Boysbut WAY BETTER. And it's interesting how my reading of the characters has changed as an adult.When I was growing up, I was very much like George. In fact, in 3rd grade I made everyone call me George. I thought she was the coolest character I'd ever met, and we agreed on a lot of things (mostly on how being a girl sucked). Reading this as an adult is interesting. In some ways Ge [...]

    23. Ah, the Famous Five. I've been meaning to reread these for nostalgia's sake -- or at least a couple of them. I used to practically inhale them when I was eight or nine years old or so. I was a little apprehensive about a reread now -- especially because of all the talk about how inappropriate Enid Blyton's writing is now, in terms of feminism and racism I thought I wouldn't be able to read it.Fortunately, at least with the rose-coloured glasses of nostalgia, this book remained fun to read. It ob [...]

    24. This review will have to do for all the Famous Five books, because, well really, it's just the same story over and over again.But that 'sameness' is the very reason I come back to the Famous Five even now. There's something very satisfying about knowing that the Five will triumph, despite all the set-backs, baddies and dire (unlikely) occurences. Enid Blyton was the queen of the 'safe' book - predictable in a very British sort of way, but with four capable, clever and courageous protagonists, wh [...]

    25. Aaah the children's classic. Famous Five. This is the first of their adventures and the first novel by Enid Blyton that I picked up myself. Having these books read to my class by my primary school teacher as a child, I was sure picking the book up at 19 would flood me with nostalgia and innocent joy.Instead, I dropped the book at 46%. Yes. I DNF-ed it. It had nothing to do with the book itself. I think children would love to lose themselves in the adventures of Julian, Dick, Anne and Georgina- o [...]

    26. I re-read this just for the fun of it. Being poorly and staring at my daughter's bookshelf I plucked it off and read it in one (short) sitting. As a kid I loved the Famous Five books, they made me want to move to England so badly that I promised myself that one day I would live here. Funny how that turned out. I can still totally see why I loved the books so much, I always loved a mystery even back then. Mystery and fantasy will forever be my favourite genre.

    27. Loved this series as a child and devoured several books in a row each holiday. I couldn't wait to go to the library and exchange one stack of books for another. :DThis series is an oldie but a goodie. Some elements of the story may be a bit dated now, especially technology, but the adventures more than make up for it. You can't resist the boyish charm of George/Georgina, her stubborness and courage. Not that other children aren't competent or ingenious, but she's my favourite.

    28. Been a heck of a long time since I read these, but I always wanted to be a part of the Famous Five gang and go away and have adventures.Sadly I don't really remember the stories just vague plots from different books. Always my summer holiday read.

    29. My childhood favourite - Enid Blyton! I am re-reading her books and I am so glad to find that I still can't put them down without finishing! They are really great exciting books! Glad to meet an old friend
