Blyton's Running out of Mysteries
23 August 2012

Well, there goes my goal of reading all of the Secret Seven books in order. I realised that I haven't read one for a while so I decided to grab this one, in case I finished my other book while I was on holidays (I didn't), and when I finished my last book I clicked on the 'reading now' tab on Goodreads and suddenly realised that this was the last one – I still have another three to read before I get to this one. So, I sat at the table in the coffee

The most boring Secret Seven book ever. No wonder it was her last. I shall call it "The one which drones on and on about an old man and a horse and nothing really happens at all".

I used to read Enid Blyton when I was young and the Secret Seven were one of my fav along with the Famous Five. Although as I recall, the Secret Seven used to solved mysteries, this however was targeted at a much younger audience it seems. The story revolves around the Secret Seven coming to the rescue of Tolly and his horse Brownie. Well technically Brownie isn't Tolly's horse, he just works for the owner. Brownie has met with an accident while lugging a heavy cart and his back legs have gone u ...more

A nice finish to the Secret Seven series. This one was more of an adventure than a mystery. When I told my son that we had finished the series and there were no more Secret Seven books, he asked me if we could get them all again.

Out of all the Secret Seven books, this is definitely my least favourite. There wasn't any mystery to be solved, to be honest there wasn't much of a story either; they just help a man and a horse.

It was much more sickly sweet than the other Secret Seven books and I found the children extremely irritatating when they kept going on and on about buying a share in the horse.

I'm glad this was the last book in the series and not the first, because I probably wouldn't have read any more of them if it

Review by Katy, aged 7: This book is about the Secret Seven, the BEAUTIFUL horse Brownie, and old Tolly. My favourite part was when the party happened. And when the mystery started. Others will enjoy this book, I can assure you, in case you don't know! Dad and I read this book together.

This is undoubtedly the worst book that Enid Blyton ever wrote, and the fact that she seems to have all but totally lost her mental faculties by this point is undoubtedly to blame. Plot strands are started and utterly forgotten about, characters forget what they are supposed to be doing or feeling from page to page, and the narrative is a complete mess. The fact that the book was allowed to be published in this state is an insult to both Enid and her readers.

I read this before my current (November-December 2007) Secret-Seven spree. I don't remember it in detail, except that it seemed crudely written in spots, but was overall quite fun.

Back cover blurb (of the Galaxy Children's Large Print Edition): "The Seven are desperate to help Tolly and his sick horse, Brownie. But where can they hide an old man and his horse? And can they protect Brownie from thieves?"

I learned that we should not be rude to any person even if it's pet is very old we should also take care of it and don't let it do improper things to a pet and don't let it be injured

A proper feel good story for children or those reliving their younger reading days. Plenty of good and bad guys to keep the story very entertaining.

I only read the Secret Seven recently, and the funny thing is I don't think I would have actually liked them when I was the target age.
