    "Not Just for Kids"

    This is a great story to get acquainted with the Famous Five series.
    Insightful characterisations, believable storyline, skilfully performed by Jan Francis.
    Don't be put off by the one voice doing all of the characters. More professional
    and enjoyable to listen to than the use of various child voices used in the dramatisations.
    May take a few minutes to get used to the voices, but once you do, you're on your way.

    "Gorgeous stories"

    I have always loved the Famous Five series. Safe, fun, action (and food) filled adventures for kids! Jan Francis is an excellent narrator, not only giving each character a distinct voice, but acting and performing throughout. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Great family listening"

    I read some of the famous five books when I was young, so decided to buy this to introduce my children to something that I had enjoyed. It went down better than I expected, the story really hasn’t dated much at all, and both of my kids loved it and are now looking forward to book 2 on our next long car journey.

    "Memories"

    Bought this for my sons. I enjoyed it more than them because of the memories it brought back when I used to read it as a kid myself.

    Story
    "Excellent."

    Listened to this in the car on a couple of relatively long journeys. Trying to wean two small boys (5 and 7) off iPads and into books - and the ones we used to read when we were kids.

    Worked brilliantly. At the end of the long journey tonight had to run upstairs and lie in bed together until it was finished.

    Eldest now wants me to buy him the book.

    "Times change."
    What disappointed you about Famous Five: 1?

    As an adult now, I'm clearly not the intended audience but this has not aged well. Symptomatic of being written in the 1940s in many respects, not least it has poor attitudes towards women amongst other aspects which haven't aged well.


    Any additional comments?

    There are better books available for a young audience and this shouldn't get a pass simply because 'Blyton'.

    "Classic story perfect for boys"
    What made the experience of listening to Famous Five: 1 the most enjoyable?

    I bought this for my son and wasn't sure what he would think but he loved it from the first chapter to the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He loved the treasure, and story of wrecks and kids hiding from the baddies


    Any additional comments?

    We will be buying more famous five books as my son loved this one and wants some more!
