Review by

It was meant to be. At long last the unwanted thing happened. I got swayed by the review of one user here and consequently I couldn't enjoy The Famous Five book for what it is. Among the four kids, it was Julian's demeanor that spoiled the fun. I immediately noticed how bossy and slightly mean he was. He wouldn't say anything without cussing Anne or someone other than her. I found the entire adventure boring and even the tinned stuff they were having on the island didn't look yummy to me. It's the end of an era. I may either take another Famous Five book on the rebound, or take a break from the series. It's not the end of the world, and I'm not sad at all, but such a day, maybe, was bound to arrive.
