The Secret Seven Adventure (The Secret Seven, #2) by Enid BlytonThis is the second installment in The Secret Seven series and its called Secret Seven Adventure. The author is no other then Enid Blyton.
The Secret Seven have got nothing to do that is until they are playing American Indians in Little Thicket. While Peter, Janet, Jack, Barbra, Pam and George are after Colin, he is in a tree. When he is in the tree, he sees someone coming down from a tall wall, in Milton Manor. He sees him drop down, Peter sees him but he runs away only to come to the very tree in which Colin is hiding in. Why did he have to pick this tree? The man gets away and the Secret Seven think nothing of it until they hear Lady Lucy Thomass Pearl Necklace has been stolen. Is it the man that Colin and Peter saw while they were playing American Indians. If so it is up to them to find out who it was...
The main characters in this are the Secret Seven. The leader is Peter and I very much liked his character in this book. His sister, Janet is apart of the society and she is okay. She didnt really do as much as the previous novel but I still liked her. Than theres Jack and Colin who I think are the most interesting characters and have the biggest part in been in the group. Then there is George, Barbra and Pam. Although they are classed as main characters they dont as much as I would like to see them do. Then the last main character is Scamper. I have to say I am very disappointed with his involvement. I had such a good and important role in the last book that in this one he didnt have that much input.
Then we have the additional characters in the book. One of the characters is a character that appeared in the first one, her named being Susie. She is Jacks sister and I have to say I really like her character. I think she will be a recurring character throughout the series. Unfortunately Miss Ely didnt reprise her role, which I really wanted to see more of her. Then we have the thief, who is Louis. He is a worker in the circus and I had my eye on him from the very start. His character was interesting enough but thats it. There was other characters like John the Gardner and the circus folk but they werent that important.
The main locations in this book were Little Thicket, in which we saw the thief for the first time and I found the area interesting. A location in Little Thicket was Milton Manor which we saw frequently but we didnt see inside unfortunately. The place which appeared throughout was the circus and I loved the location and I found it very fascinating. Lastly, the main location is the Secret Seven shed in which they have the meetings.
Overall I really loved this addition to the series. I loved the storyline and I thought it was more solid then the original. I read this very fast and I thought it was fast paced all the way through! The characters need more work on them and I would of liked to see Lady Lucy Thomas and inside of Milton Manor!
Enid Blytons writing style is just amazing and unique. I always love reading it. I cant wait to read the third addition to the series!
