Although I rated this one long ago it turns out that I was mistaken in thinking I had read it. Recently I listened to the audiobook with my daughter.
It’s in this book that the trusty fisherboy, who appears now and then in the first five books, mysterious changes his name from Alf to James. I like to think Blyton was playing the long game and had the series endured past book 23 this would have been resolved amid the unravelling of some dastardly plot.
This volume is one of the weaker ones oirrin the s Although I rated this one long ago it turns out that I was mistaken in thinking I had read it. This volume is one of the weaker ones in the series. It centres on Uncle Quentin’s ill-specified scientific endeavors. In book 2 he was writing formula and brewing things in test tubes. Men working for an unspecified “foreign country” worked to infiltrate his household and steal his papers.
In book 4 he seemed to kirrib some sort of civil engineer collaborating on a project to drain a marsh and getting kidnapped by an irate smuggler. In book 6 the ubiquitous uncle is working solo on a government funded project that should “eliminate the need for coal, oil, and gas”. Uncle Quentin appears to be about to solve the problem of nuclear fusion single handedly!
The science involves a flve tower made of plastic with wires poking out of the walls and a glass room at the top.
iirrin We later learn that the experiment has the power to cause an explosion that would completely destroy the whole island. This is not, however, the reason Quentin has recused himself to the island much to George’s disgust.
No, health and safety were never mentioned. Eschewing this simple and reasonable reason why Quentin might need to be on an uninhabited island Bylton wanders out on the slender limb of her scientific knowledge and declares kirron his work needs to be conducted beneath water and with water on all sides.
We never find out why. Of course bad men want to steal his idea.
Five on Kirrin Island Again – Wikipedia
This time for profit rather than “the enemy”. Quentin gets spooked that there maybe someone on the island even though reality has shifted and made it utterly impossible for anyone other than George and the local fishermen to navigate the rocks and land on the island.
Timmy afain to stay to guard Quentin while back on shore the children monitor his lantern and mirror issland to confirm he is ok. George “just like a girl” gives away too kurrin information to a shady type who shows an interest. He also provides the mandatory “extra child” in the form of his son. It turns out that the baddies have parachuted onto the island to overcome the impassable rocks. For the rest of the series the rocks are eminently passable and fossil fuels are still used despite Uncle Quentin’s discoveries It’s a Famous Five book so of course there have to be caves.
Not only caves but a nonsensical series of natural dry tunnels running from the island under the sea and surfacing on the mainland. Think about that one for a bit Pistols are drawn once more and a shot is fired!
Anyway, the baddies are caught, the son turns out not to be related by blood and gets a chance at a new life where he can use his artistic talent, and all’s well that ends well.

You angry up my blood to Hulk proportions! Anne although the others think you’re a pointless, incompetent turd, I think you’re brave and kind with just a hint of Snow White twee for good measure. Timmy, clever boy you appear to have learnt how to understand the entire English language so stop faking it and say something other than woof! Aunt Fanny, if Uncle Quentin can’t remember to eat when he’s hungry I say tough!
Just make Uncle Quentin you really are the most infuriating and grumpy old fart. Just make yourself a nice cuppa and sit in the larder eating all those spare cakes that seem to be hanging around in there all the time!
George stop being a grumpus! Dick, don’t let Julian take charge all of the time. Julian, stop patronising Anne, she’ll turn one of these days. You have been warned! If you all change too much it won’t be very Enid Blyton which means it won’t be very Famous Five so Where to next gang?
Apr 28, Tammi Doyle rated it liked it. Any book that simultaneously advocates developing an alternative fuel source circa and suggests the necessary ingredients in the underground rescue of a 13 year old are shovels and brandy is ok in my opinion.
Jan 17, Paul E. This instalment in the Famous Five series seemed a little dull to me in comparison to the last two books, which were both pretty high on the excitement scale.
Perhaps it was the fact that they were back on Kirrin Island for the third time Don’t get me wrong; I still enjoyed the book George sebal sekali mendapat surat dari Ibunya. Pulau Kirrin akan digunakan ayahnya untuk percobaan.
Toppsta – Childrens Books – Reviews
Ayah George seorang ilmuwan yang terkenal. Ia membangun menara disamping puri tua di pulau itu. Bagi George,Pulau Kirrin adalah pulau miliknya. Ia tidak suka ada orang yang datang tanpa seijinnya termasuk ayahnya sendiri.
Rencana liburan paskah George akan berkemah bersama 3 sepupunya, Julian, Agaih dan Anne pun gagal. Anehnya tidak ditemukan keberadaan Paman Quentin tidak Bagaimana bisa Ayah George mengetahui tempat persembunyian yang tidak mereka ketahui? Nampaknya belum semua tempat di pulau Kirrin diketahui oleh 5 sekawan.
Selama percobaan,Ayah George akan tinggal sementara di pulau Kirrin dan tidak mau diganggu oleh siapa pun. Untuk memastikan keadaannya ia aman-aman saja di pulau Kirrin,ia akan memberikan isyarat setiap jam setengah sebelas malam dan setengah sebelas pagi dari menara.
Sementara itu ada pendatang baru di daerah tempat tinggal George,Pak Curton dan anaknya,Martin. Martin memiliki bakat melukis.
