good story some editing issues

really enjoyed this treasure hunt tale. Secret passages are found as the famous five try to save a family farm from the machinations of some dastardly antique buyers.
fun as usual.

Not Bad

I have read the book but didn't remember the story. The story departs from the usual plot and I didn't enjoy this as much as others in the series.

Yeah, but nah...

This Famous five story is a really good story, but the narrator completely ruins it.

Great story, terrible narration

This is one of my favourite Famous Five stories, with the five hunting for a secret passage, a lost, ancient castle and hidden treasure. Unfortunately this is one of the only books in the series that isn't narrated by Jan Francis. Instead, Sarah Greene races through the narration, ignoring punctuation and talking so fast I kept feeling like I needed to take a deep breath! She also doesn't do different voices for the different characters. She reads the whole story in the same voice as all the characters, which is a bit disappointing, particularly when Jan Francis has distinct voices for each character. Also, this recording seems to have a number of problems - it often cuts out and repeats sentences or skips a sentence ahead.

Poor narration

Sarah Greene read this famous five book far far too fast and that's why it's an hour shorter than the titles Jan Francis had narrated. Disappointing

Narration too fast

Brilliant story (as are all the Famous Five books). For me, the only thing that was disappointing was the narration. Sarah Greene's voice was ok but she spoke far too fast.

Come back Jan Francis

I don't want to be too harsh on Sarah Greene, whose voice is largely easy on the ear, but this was a disappointment after all the Jan Francis-narrated stories. Jan was absolutely masterful with pace, clarity, the character's voices and feeling. This was read way too fast, which spoilt it, and my son had got used to hearing the voices of each individual character, performed so well by JF. So, OK, because it's another great story but we're disappointed not have had JF narrating.

A Fantastic Five Adventure, This Time Unabridged

I first visited this book about thirty years ago when I bought a double cassette copy which, being around two hours fifteen minutes, was abridged and what a joy it was to visit the full unabridged book for the first time. Quite a few people have found Sarah Greene to be a rather bad narrator, but though not perhaps up to Jan Francis, I found her reading to be very much enjoyable. I remember I was in fits of laughter when I first heard the abridged copy when George took Junior his breakfast and the meeting including Henning, Durlston, Grandad, William Finniston and the rest at the end was fantastic. One thing's for sure, when I'm finished the final book I won't be able to resist revisiting the series.
