Fifth Formers of St Clare's by Enid Blyton

On the Back of the Book

'Felicity!' Must you play that awful, gloomy tune again?' said Anne-Marie. 'I'm trying to get the last verse of this poem right.'

The fifth form are sharing studies this year. And tempers are fraying. t's going to be a very tense term!

There's more trouble at St Clare's






My Thoughts

I liked this book but I'm not quite sure what I want to say about it. I enjoyed the story but I read this one straight after reading book six and it did feel like more of the same thing.

The characters have some problems that teenagers today still face: exams. As there does tend to be in Enid Blyton books, there's even a thief!

Although I did like the book, the amount of narrators did get a bit confusing. The point of view would change really suddenly and I'd find myself back tracking in an attempt to figure out what had just happened. A sense of stability in the chapters would have been marvellous.





My Rating

3 stars - It's a good read that you can enjoy in a matter of hours. It's not one of my favourite Enid Blyton's but it's worth a read none the less.

Have to comment on these, this was one of the first series I ever read, we won't talk about how long ago that was! I know lots of people rubbish Enid Blyton but she introduced so many people to reading and to a lifelong love of books including me. Happy memories, thanks for reminding me of them :)

Enid Blyton was amazing! A lot of my love of mystery books came from Famous Five and Secret Seven. And the Cherry Tree Farm book made me love her forever! I'm glad my review brought back memories! :-)
