I was given the opportunity to review Malory Towers courtesy of PJP PR . I must admit I was a bit selfish when i chose these books as I used to love these books when i was younger. I thought my 10-year-old daughter would enjoy them just as much as I think Enid Blyton’s way or writing and portraying school life is so true to life even now a days.
The books came in a box set of 6 which has the complete series of Malory Towers. It follows a group of school girls through their school life. From their first pensive days at the beginning of school to their final term as they approach adult hood. It covers a lot of subjects that pre-teenagers and teenagers can relate to. Such as friendships being formed and all the up and downs in between, it’s definitely a real take of life. It covers all the stresses of school life as well such as exam time which at lot of us can relate to either ourselves or through our children.
My daughter loved the books and was engrossed in following the story, especially the first term book it was oh yes , I felt like when I started school wondering if I would ever find any friends or yes, that happened to me I was so scared when I started school. When I asked her what she thought of the characters she said she could relate them to her group of friends at school. The characters of the book are so easy to relate to and I’m sure we have all had friends like each of the characters from the book in our group of friends.There are a lot of life lessons that can be learnt by reading these books.
I would highly recommend this book for any pre teenager/teenager it’s a riveting read that’s not only funny but can be serious as well.
