I feel like I owe this book another good read. I don't think I got a sense of it during my first read because it was given to me as a gift at the end of my internship in India and I read it to pass the time as I traveled in Nepal and back home to Ame ...more

This second book of the "secret" series is much weaker than the first. The first was different and more creative than the other Enid Blyton books, but the remainder of the series falls into her usual pattern. Which is a pattern I love, obviously, but I was ...more

Heard about this on the Diane Rehm show. The author was very eloquent about his arguments against the word and about giving the history behind the word. Sounds great.

Stephen King only writes scary fiction. That sentence is not true. This is definitely my favorite book from my Stephen King phase and its a book that does not fit his horror genre.

When I was younger, my parents thought the biggest threat of punishment they could make was "I'll send you off to boarding school!" Thanks to the Malory Towers (and St. Clare's) series, this threat had absolutely no weight. I thought boarding school ...more

I'm not as big of a fan of the Secret Seven as I am of the Famous Five and the Five Find-Outers, etc. I think it is because it was written for a younger set (I mean, not that the rest of her books were written for 25-year-olds), so younger children a ...more
