Impressive, Enid Blyton, with her most imaginative ideas attracts the youth to this book. Every scene in here is a one that builds up a thrill and enthusiasm inside you. Each moment inscribed in this book is reactionary. The Castle of Adventure is considered a mysterious book filled with excitement. The characters in every book give an important touch to it. Characters in this novel share a variety of qualities, which broadens the reader¿s views on the attributes of human nature. Philip, Lucy-Ann, Dinah and Jack, though good friends have characteristics that are totally different; one of them being active, the other being clumsy, one being delicate and graceful the other being graceless and harsh. All of these kids take us along with them in their world of adventure and exploring the mystifying, dark castle. Once you get started with this book you are just addicted to it. Want to know what do the kids discover in the castle? Or; Does someone really live in the castle or is it rumors? Well you have to read the book to find the answers. It is a breathtaking novel, recommended for all children who enjoy adventure.

It's strange to think that there's a whole series of Enid Blyton books that I haven't really read - just a couple of titles out of order. Having collected them in the UK, I never got a chance to read them then, so I'm gradually making sure of them now. Somehow they don't grab my attention like the Famous Fives, which is probably why they're less popular, but I am fascinated by the level of detail Blyton goes into with regards to Jack's interest in birds. For a Blyton book, there is a surprising amount of detail devoted to Jack's abilities and his dedication to his passion for birds.One of the most fascinating aspects of this book for me was the description of Jack working out how to create a hide and setting up his camera, gradually accustoming the eagles to his presence and to the click of the camera. I found myself filled with admiration for the way in which he finally captures brilliant images of the young eagle learning to fly. All of Blyton's main characters tend to be clever and capable, but there is rarely a mention of anything that might suggest a future career or a particular skill. Even in this series, so far only Jack shows what he has in him as a person and what he might achieve. I think I shall enjoy reading this series for that aspect alone.

The four adventurers are back in the saddle again, moving from a lonely island to a mysterious castle. The children manage to find a way in to the old, abandoned structure, and all the great elements of a Blyton adventure soon make their appearances. Tassie, the wild girl, is an interesting addition to the cast. It's not clear if she is a gypsy girl or just a local from a very poor family.
