A Great Adventure

I first read Enid Blyton 60 years ago. I still love to read (and listen) to her. She is able to write for and about children without talking down to them. These kids are real and likable. Do yourself a favor and listen! Give your children a gift and let them meet this wonderful writer!

My kids love these stories

This book series is perfect to read aloud as a family. They are full of adventure, mystery, excitement and fun. We've read the first 4 books in the series and my kids want to keep going. That says a lot.

My boys loved it

What made the experience of listening to Five Go to Smuggler's Top the most enjoyable?

My boys loved the story and whenever we're in the car they were asking for it. I grew up with this series in Germany so it sets me back in time.
Tyhe book is well read and keeps kids entertained amd away from their ipad..

What did you like best about this story?

Its living and fun.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, but my boys were laughing regularly so I'm assuming they loved it.

Five Go To Smugglers' Top

Ah, one of my favourite childhood adventure books and made all the better by Jan Francis' narration (although her portrayal of Marybelle was just a little too screechy for my ears.)

Excellent throughout.

Splendid!

Most enjoyable and have managed to more or less stick to original text too, makes such a difference!

Echoey recording for some reason

The quality of this recording is not as good as the other famous five recordings Jan Francis has done. It’s the sound quality, sounds really echoey very frequently. Not sure why this isn’t the same quality as the other ones.
No fault with Jan herself or the story.

Five go to smugglers top

Amazing audio book read with brilliant expressions and the voices are chosen to fit that particular character. Highly recommend this audio book to any readers especially those who enjoy reading adventure and mystery themed books. If you or the listener like Enid blytons books, they are all read by the same person, Jan Francis , so the voices are the same in each book. The Way the speed of the book is read is gripping and you can really imagine the scene as if you are there in person.

Great story

Bought for my son but enjoyed at least as much by me. I wonder how Enid Blyton came up with such tales?!
