Enid Blyton remains -and after this book, stays - as one of my favorite authors. This book made for a good merry tale of adventure and innocence, and the pages flew by in one day. I needed this book after a few mismatched and false starts and hiccups. I needed the silky and fluid narrative that this book provided. If there had been a clever enough ending instead of the dumb one provided then it would be one of the best ever. This book is about the Famous Five going off to a Hill bracketed by a ...more
A cute little story, made more cute by Benny and Curly, his little pigling. I liked as well the inclusion of Toby, a friend of Julian and Dick's- it seems to me that most of the kids the five go to school with wouldn't believe their adventures, and now one has shared in it. It was another quick read, but I always love reading the adventures of the five, whether long or short.

One particular line caught my attention; when they are discussing traitors, Dick says traitors deserve to die. Heady stuff
Saya ingat sekali novel pertama yang saya baca adalah "Lima Sekawan: Sarjana Misterius" saat masih kelas 1 SMP. Membaca Lima Sekawan saat itu terasa asyik sekali, seakan saya ikut merasakan kekompakan bersama, kecerdikan Timmy, dan aksi kepahlawanan mereka membela kebenaran. Saya juga sering merasa iri dengan mereka yang diceritakan selalu dijamu makanan-makanan lezat, seperti daging asap, salmon, dsb. Gara-gara novel ini jugalah, saya jadi ingin merasakan tidur-tiduran di padang rumput yang lua ...more
Ahh, the joys of the famous five. A wonderful reflection of the time it was written, when kids scampered around the countryside, knocked on the doors of strange farmhouses and were given creamy milk, eggs and cake! (pretty sure it wasn't like that at all, but we can all rosy tint that past!)

This book deals with the terrible problem that there might be spies and theft around ("Goodness gracious!")with Enid Blyton's usual cast of Julian, Dick, Anne and George with Timmy the dog providing all of th
Petualangan apaan?

Satu-satunya yang saya ingat cuman detil snack untuk tea party dan tiap makanan untuk bekal para Lima Sekawan.
*lalu dilempar pake Timmy dan si Babi*

Tapi akui sajalah. Kemampuan Enid Blyton sebagai penulis untuk menggambarkan makanan memang oh-so-yoi-banget.
Bahkan, jujur, untuk saya itu salah satu bakat Mbah Enid yang paling yoi.
Bakat Enid Blyton yang lain dan cukup revolusioner untuk ukuran penulis awal abad 20 adalah cara beliau dalam menggambarkan

I guess by number 16 the stories start to become a little dry and the setting becomes very similar. I have probably mentioned before, and the reason that I have mentioned it is because others have mentioned it as well, and that is that the Famous Five do not actually seem to grow up and that there seem to be an awful lot of holidays in England. In fact the Famous Five seem to spend more time on holidays than they do at school, and further, there seems to be many places around Kirin Cottage for ...more

Teringat jaman saya masih sd, ketagihan untuk membaca setelah melahap segala macam buku sehabis mengenal harry potter series, di balik rak ada buku-buku kecil yang sudah menguning dan berlabel Rp 500 dibelakangnya, ada sekitar 15an buku yang tidak pernah dibaca oleh siapapun sebelum saya menemukannya. Maklum tante saya bekerja di kompas gramedia dan sangat senang membelikan buku-buku saat pameran di kantornya untuk kakak saya yang sayangnya sangat tidak menyukai membaca buku. buku-buku tersebut ...more

There are several interesting and engaging aspects to this adventure, including caves, aeroplanes and a mysterious pair of butterfly men.

Este é o meu livro preferido da colecção "Os cinco" e um dos que, por algum motivo, mais marcou os primeiros anos da minha adolescência.
I remember there is a new strange friend in this volume, who keeps a snake in his pocket and can attract animals.
