Whispering Island, hmm...
I find that the titles in their Indonesian edition speaks more of its content than the original ones.

pasti loe semua juga baca novel ini kan?...seru..petualangan setiap saat...kadang gw pikir, remaja di luar sana berani2 ya? en selalu beruntung juga, makanya selalu lolos dari bahaya en bisa nyelesain semua misteri....
As with all Famous Five books, this is of the same trusted and successful formula.

I loved these books as a child and I am delighted that my girls loved them as children too.

The stories are adventures of a byegone age, yet still hold the attention of children, around the world...... they have stood the test of time well - and for a great reason.

The stories are plausible, fun, adventurous and contain an excellent mix of young characters... with a little bit of everyone in each of them - something
adventure is necessary in life. don't get too comfortable or you'll be on your way to being obsolete

I loved the Famous Five books when I was a kid. I don't recall much about them anymore though. This one is set on a cottage overlooking the harbour and an island.

I'd recommend this series for kids who love adventure stories coupled with mystery and detective elements. It's like a younger version of the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew.

What to say now? This was really as exciting as ever. The most interesting part was when the five were on Whispering Island. They way they escaped from that cave through the well was really fascinating. I wish I had such adventures! They found various gold statues and jewels. Well, at last it was mentioned that Whispering island, the cottage on the hill in which the Five lived and Morris who used to tell tales about the island are all real. This was from the side of the author- Enid Blyton. I li ...more

wow! these people are GREAT! the mystery is..........unspeakable and dumbfounding. i suspect timmy is real cute. :)
So I was wrong: there is no such thing as a saturation point where the Famous Five is concerned! And this is a fun one. So much drama! Golden beds and guns! A near-death experience for Timmy! Anne raising her voice, and not just once but twice! Crikey moses.

I read this when I was about ten. And, even then, I wondered - is this really a book for kids? I thought is was written for amoebas or some kind of other less intellectual beings. Really, kids are not dumb. Stop underestimating them and start writing more challenging books.
Nov 19, 2011 Kirsti rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Number 20 in the famous fave series, and another one that isn't set in Kirrin. Here we see the children staying at their parents home for once, although not for long. George and Timmy visit most days, of course, and then they are asked by a kindly old lady their mother knows if they will go and stay in her cottage with Wilfred, a young boy with a gift with animals.

They hear all about Whispering Island, and believe the island is full of undisturbed animals and treasure. Quite by mistake the five

I adored the Famous Five books as a kid. I don't remember the specifics of this one in particular, but I loved them all dearly.

This was a truly excellent series to read as a 12 year-old boy. They all filled me up with a sense of wonder and expectaction, and I read a few of them several times. Highly recommended.

My version is a translation to Spanish by Editorial Juventud, 11th edition.

ini buku terahir dari 21 seri lima sekawan yang aku baca,uda agak lupa ceritanya soalnya sudah lama banget,kalo gak keliru ini pas anne uda jadi kapten olahraga di sekolahnya
As one of the last ones of the Famous Five series this is one of my favourites. It is great with whispering Island and all the mysteries.

These books (Famous five) are hands down one of my favorite books from my childhood. All those adventures and mystery …and those sandwiches they always packed! aww, just the best! I would love to read one of these again. To bring back those memories..memories of first experiences with reading books.
Yang aku suka dari karya Enid Blyton: Temanya yang selalu persahabatan, dan ceritanya yang simple tapi mudah dimengerti.

I wanted to have a glimpse at what made these books so addictive as a child and my answer is - I don't know! This story set a great mystery, but other than minor skirmishes, the children didn't really get to the bottom of anything. Disappointing book that has more questions than answers.

Karang Setan, si # 19. Episode ini memberikan sebuah hiburan baru bagi para pecinta Lima Sekawan, MercuSuar!

This could also be entitled Five Jump the Shark. It eventually straightened out, but not before a creepy-Pied-Piper-toad-talking boy took over the first half. Also, much more abuse of exclamation points than there generally is, which is saying something.

Also also, for the love of all that is good and holy, stop torturing the poor dog as a plot device.

Rather glad this is the penultimate installment - it's getting weird.

Huwoo.. sudah lama sekali sejak saya membaca karya-karya Enid blyton. Terutama serial lima sekawan ini. Mereka adalah salah satu favorit saya. Sayang, sebab banjir koleksi buku saya sejak kecil rusak semua dan tak bersisa karena sebagian hanyut. Betapa antusias saya mendapatkan buku ini dari hadiah lomba di twitter yang diselengga

Same Story, Different Island
30 September 2015

Well, I am getting close to reading all of the Enid Blyton books that I intend on reading (I have no interest in Mallory Towers or the Naughtiest School Girl, and since Blyton wrote heaps of books, and I have already read quite a few, I think I will leave it with the Famous Five and Secret Seven) so I am slowly getting there and hopefully once they are out of the way I can then look at reading some other series that I have been itching to read again

the book was good and I really like how timmy is a part of the famous Five unlike in secret seven. though I do think it could have been more better with some more humour.

This used to be my favourite Famous Five story when I was little. :)
I probably didn't enjoy it as much reading it as an adult, as I found myself questioning why on earth such and such would happen in the way it did! BUT this is a kids book and I think Enid Blyton just cannot be beaten for allowing children to escape into adventure where they are often granted so much independence, amazing foods, and sometimes whole other worlds to explore! :)
I have the whole series of Famous Five for my childre
