IS BECOMING AN ABSOLUTE RIP-OFF!!!!!!

i do love all of these books and the narrator,,,Jan Francis,,,does it superbly and this rant is NOTHING to do with the books at all but is about the big greedy company that is selling them...so,,,,,it is becoming feking expensive to have all of the books.....there is sometimes a "special offer" on some of the books but even so,,,,you might only save £1 or £2 per boo...........an option to ethier buy the whole collection for a reduced price or maybe buy 4 get 1 free or,,,,,well,,,,just a decent offer,,,or any offer of some kind.....its not exactly like Amazon cant afford it!!!!
all in all,,,,,its abit disgusting and just money grabbing from Amazon.......but because they are the big "mega" comapny that they are......of course they can charge whatever the fuck they want.
i spit in your face you greedy shits.

I prefer the other books

I prefer the other books to this one. This book didn’t have the traditional style to the famous 5 books
George hardly got any time
Dick gets too much time and is Julian 2.0
Anne is too much of a key player
Julian wasn’t very brave compared to the other books
The villains are too controversial

A good listen!!

I loved this book and have listened to it many times but the only thing is Jan Francis ( who reads the book ) makes Anne too sweet when she is just probably a normal little girl. Also after a while it gets quite boring. I would recommend this book for anyone who listens to audible while they go to sleep or about to go to sleep. Again a great listen and a good story line.

Transported back to my childhood and glad to be.

Would you listen to Famous Five: Five Go Off In A Caravan again? Why?

As a boy I read everything that Enid Blyton wrote. It was a rite of passage for people of my generation. As you grew a little older you went from the Secret Seven books to The Five Finder Outers series to reading The Famous Five.

What did you like best about this story?

The joy of a long forgotten time and the sort of children's stories I grew up with, having the kind of adventures which I always hoped that someday I and my friends would have.

Have you listened to any of Jan Francis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first Jan Francis performances I have heard, and I would happily listen to others, she does a great job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Would love to be able to obtain other titles in this series, so far I can find only one other, please add more.
