ένα από τα 2-3 καλύτερα της αγαπημένης μου παιδικής σειράς, παραμένει δροσερό και πλακατζίδικο μετά από τόσα χρόνια. ο Φρέντυ ήταν άνετα ένας από τους ήρωες της παιδικής μου ηλικίας

Findouters challenge: Book 15. The final book of the findouters series, this marks the end of my findouters challenge which I began last October. This one opens a little differently from the rest as while the children are setting out to receive Fatty as usual, this time around he comes by bus rather than train. There is no mystery waiting for Fatty to solve at the start, and as the childrens’ parents want them out of their hair, they suggest the children go on expeditions to different places aro ...more

ENID BLYTON NEVER GETS BORING!!
Reading an Enid Blyton's novel is like revisiting the childhood days. Every time i delve into Enid Blyton's world,i feel a longing to be one of her characters.Even after having read so many authors,i still feel she is among the most vivid authors i have come across.
Even this recent novel of hers that i read,didn't disappoint me a bit.It was enthralling from the beginning to the end.This is about five kids apparently headed by Fatty,who has recently returned from

Ini pertama kali saya membaca buku karangan Enid Blyton dan rasanya langsung jatuh cinta. Dibandingkan dengan Misteri Nuri Gagap yang kasusnya sudah jelas dari awal (hilangnya burung nuri), buku ini justru memancing pembaca untuk mencari tahu apa kasusnya: pasti sesuatu yang berhubungan dengan Banshee Tower. Dan tiap lembarannya membuat saya makin ingin tahu dan ikutan menebak: apa kasusnya, kenapa dan siapa? Dan lagoi-lagi tebakan saya tidak tepat benar hahaha...
Dari sisi teknis, sinopsis belak

This was a book I bought a few months ago and never read before putting it away. I always enjoy stories about Fatty and the others, but I guess I assumed I'd already read this one when I in fact hadn't. I liked how quickly the mystery was wrapped up, and the story behind it all. Ern is a delight, with his Coos and whatnot. Goon is as loveable a bungler as ever. The Mystery of Banshee Towers, like all Enid Blyton books, five stars!

It is really an interesting one. I should say that it is the best one by Enid Blyton in the mystery series.

Seri Enyd Blynton kayaknya disusun berurutan sesuai kadar gawat-tidaknya. Sapta Siaga menurut saya yang paling ringan. Disusul dengan Pasukan Mau Tahu, lalu serial Lima Sekawan, kemudian dipuncaki oleh seri Petualangan. Sungguh beruntung mereka yang berkesempatan membaca semua seri ini di masa kecil dan remajanya. Buat yang belum, tidak ada kata terlambat untuk berkelana ke lembah rahasia, menelusuri lorong bawah tanah, dan mengejar kereta api hantu bersama Dinah, Bets, dan Fatty.

"What's happening now? How is it something always happens when that fat boy is about?", he grunts. "Pooh, what a smell of mint. One of these days, Master Frederick Trotteville, I'll get the better of you! You see if I don't!"

I always get nostalgic when I read Ms. Blyton's books. Her books make me transcend into my childhood days and the beautiful, fragrant memories I grew up with. I remember, I used to sit outside on the cot during winter holidays and read her books. Sadly, here in India,

agak bingung baca cover belakang edisi ini...
ditulis "Saksikan bagaimana tujuh anak plus dua anjing memecahkan misteri yang luar biasa itu!"

tapi kalo dihitung cuma ada enam anak (Fatty, Pip, Bets, Larry, Daisy & Ern) plus dua anjing (Buster & Bingo)...trus yang satu anak lagi ke mana?

anyway...ceritanya terlalu terfokus pada Fatty dan sedikit Ern...lalu anak-anak yang lain ngapain ya? cuma figuran? apa cuma nemenin Fatty naek sepeda? hehehe...

bagaimanapun, ini buku kenangan masa kecil...z

The last book in the series written by Enid Blyton,The Five Find-Outers and Dog.I had always loved reading these books by Enid Blyton but this last book did not reach my expectations.I had assumed that the author would give us an amazing conclusion to the series but unfortunately,that did not happen.Anyways,goodbye the Five Find-Outers and Dog!

A nice book but was of lower standard than the fine normal standard enid blyton has.I would recommend this book to 10-12 year olds.It does not have the same gripping action as the hardy boys has but it has more of thinking and new tricks in it.

Whenever you get bored or out of books 'ENID BLYTON' is the best author to keep ourselves thrilled no matter how old you might be but you just cant stop reading,loving the 'FIVE FIND-OUTERS AND THE DOG."AS USUAL FATTY IS AT HIS BEST.

This seems more like an extremely watered down Famous Five adventure than a Find-Outers mystery. The characterisation is poor, the pace is too slow and the plot is weak. As with other Blyton books from the '60s, this one is inglorious, verging on unreadable.

Why are there 'Famous Five' but also 'Five Find-Outers'? Hell I don't even remember this series being called the 'Find-outers' when I first read it. I iz confused.

Enid Mary Blyton (1897 - 1968) was an English author of children's books.

Born in South London, Blyton was the eldest of three children, and showed an early interest in music and reading. She was educated at St. Christopher's School, Beckenham, and - having decided not to pursue her music - at Ipswich High School, where she trained as a kindergarten teacher. She taught for five years before her 192
