    Yes and really rather sadly, I do find it quite frustrating just how quickly in the second book of her St Clare s series, Enid Blyton starts relying rather heavily and strongly on extraordinary scenarios such as a boarding school fire and a misunderstood and typecast as a troublemaker schoolgirl rescuing another and of course and naturally totally unworthy and stereotypically horrid girl from certain death For while The O Sullivan Twins has indeed been generally readable and enjoyable enoug Yes and really rather sadly, I do find it quite frustrating just how quickly in the second book of her St Clare s series, Enid Blyton starts relying rather heavily and strongly on extraordinary scenarios such as a boarding school fire and a misunderstood and typecast as a troublemaker schoolgirl rescuing another and of course and naturally totally unworthy and stereotypically horrid girl from certain death For while The O Sullivan Twins has indeed been generally readable and enjoyable enough and once again features tricks, clandestine feasts and both students and form mistresses being both nasty and nice , personally, I for one have equally found Enid Blyton s general storyline rather predictable at best and becomingandreliant on outing the nasties, on teaching rather preachy character lessons and on bad girls not only needing to redeem themselves but having to do this not slowly, organically and realistically but by means of heroics, by means of engaging in rather unbelievable feats such as Margery rescuing Erica that are at best a trifle fantastic And further, I also do kind of have to wonder why the second instalment of the St Clare s boarding school novels has been titled The O Sullivan Twins by Enid Blyton, as really, while Pat and Isabel O Sullivan do play important roles in the story, their characters are in my opinion noand and no less significant than ANY of the other St Clare s first formers, so why single them out in the book title when the contents of the presented narrative really focuses on ALL first form St Clare s pupils and NOT just on Pat and Isabel and yes, whom I sometimes actually think even play a rather obvious second fiddle so to speak to especially characters Margery, Lucy and Erica Combined with the fact that in particular with regard to Lucy and Erica, in The O Sullivan Twins, Enid Blyton has sadly gone quite out of her way to render Erica into a total and unredeemable bad apple and too one sidedly horrible to in my opinion be readily believed and Lucy so all encompassingly good and positive that she also feels just way way too positive to be in any manner realistic not to mention that Cousin Allison is just way too often being labelled as so called feather headed , while The O Sullivan Twins is indeed a decent enough sequel to The Twins at St Clare s have definitely not been nearly as enjoyable and much too one sided and full of overly developed stereotypes

    I was about 6 years old I received what is still one of the best presents I ve ever had my mum s old Enid Blyton collection It consisted of the St Clare s books, Mallory Towers, and a small selection of Famous Five, Five Find Outers, and Adventure series titles From that moment onwards I was hooked on reading and for nearly 10 years I re read at least the boarding school series several times a year I also started to expand upon my collection of En I was about 6 years old I received what is still one of the best presents I ve ever had my mum s old Enid Blyton collection It consisted of the St Clare s books, Mallory Towers, and a small selection of Famous Five, Five Find Outers, and Adventure series titles From that moment onwards I was hooked on reading and for nearly 10 years I re read at least the boarding school series several times a year I also started to expand upon my collection of Enid Blyton titles at every possible flea market and second hand bookshop occasion, and there were a lot of these during my childhood as I m now the proud owner of several hundreds of her books all the old versions, with some titles in different languages too, and all still stored at my parents place in the Netherlands sorry mum Despite my obsession with the St Clare s books in particular, and Enid Blyton in general as I read every possible book on her I could find this was before the Internet existed and was mighty impressed by not only the wealth of books she wrote but also all her other ventures including producing a club magazine, writing short stories and doing a lot of good for children I haven t actually read any of her books in about 15 years So when the Novelicious Summer Re Read was announced I knew it was the perfect opportunity to revisit one of my favourites.Unfortunately I don t have access to my vast Enid Blyton collection here in the UK and I ve just moved house so don t have a card to the local library yet either, but coincidentally enough a few months ago I won a small Enid Blyton book collection and one of the titles included was The O Sullivan Twins, the second St Clare s title I did contemplate for a bit if I should try to get my hands on the first book somehow first, especially as I hadn t read these stories in English before and so thought that with different character names I might get confused, but I tried a chapter and I needn t have worried, it felt as familiar as if I last read the books 15 weeks ago, and not 15 years For those unfamiliar with the stories though is anyone, really they focus on Pat and Isabel O Sullivan, two teenage girls who are a bit too stuck up for their own good and their parents decide to send them to asensible boarding school St Clare s While in the first book the twins are determined to not fit in and do everything they can to get back into their old, muchluxurious, boarding school, they soon realise that St Clare s is actually a great place to be and they make quick friends with the other girls and most of the teachers eventually even Mam zelle Abominable, the French teacher nicknamed that way as she writes abominable on all of the twins work at first.In the second book the twins are settled into their routine but there are three new girls that each in their own way provide lots of drama during the term Alison, who is the twins vain cousin Margery, a rude and hot tempered girl and Lucy, who is lovely and talented and everyone instantly wants to be friends with, but who too has her own battles to face during the novel And of course it wouldn t be a boarding school read if there wasn t plenty of mischief riddled throughout as well, from the magical midnight feasts to Janet playing tricks on a teacher.Even when I read the Enid Blyton books several decades ago they were old fashioned to me, as I had my mum s copies rather thancontemporary ones that had updated the language It was part of what I loved so much about them as it added to their charm and made them seem evenmagical on top of the fact that they were set in England which was very exciting to me at the time and the girls got to sleep at their school That was clearly the most amazing thing ever, and I desperately wanted to go to boarding school myself after reading these books.The version I read this time around was farmodern both with the cover which I didn t like at all and the language changed to fit the modern young reader However, thankfully the story has not been updated to include cellphones and emails, instead there were still plenty of mentions of the girls listening to a record player in the common room and writing letters to their family I m very glad that that has remained unchanged.As for reading the story from an adult s point of view, I loved it as just a much as all those years ago and I STILL want to have a midnight feast Even though it merely consisted of tinned peaches, birthday cake and ginger beer and I don t even like ginger beer it sounds so absolutely wonderful in the book that I feel like I really missed out on an important part of my childhood by never having hadof a midnight feast than some hastily devoured candy which ended up making me feel ill one late night at summer camp.The one thing I did notice, and that I didn t realise when reading these stories originally, is that everything is incredibly black and white, and the girls are really quite spiteful with their revenges when someone doesn t act the way they think they should While it does backfire on them in this novel, from what I remember from the other titles they don t actually learn from it and they still view the other girls as either lovely and their best friend, or someone that ought to learn a lesson and will be ignored for weeks and or nasty tricks played upon I realise this was likely this way on purpose to show girls reading the books what was right and wrong, but I don t think it will work with the modern generation who will see right through this.Despite that though, re reading The O Sullivan Twins was an absolutely joy, especially as just like all those years ago I couldn t stop reading it once I opened the book and so I ended up finishing it under my covers far too late at night I don t remember doing that since the last Harry Potter book came out Re reading this book also made me remember how immensely fond I used to be of Enid Blyton s novels and I am now keen to revisit some of my other favourites from her as well especially the Adventure titles, which was my second favourite series by her hand swiftly followed by Mallory Towers, Famous Five and Five Find Outers.What was your favourite Enid Blyton book I know you will have one, so go to your box of childhood classics and dig it out for a well deserved re read You won t regret it, trust me

    I m going to be deliberately provocative here and begin with the assertion that this might be one of the best school stories out there At first glance, this is a strange assertion to make The O Sullivan Twins is the second novel in a series, and it s not often that the second in the series is the one that stands out above the rest It s usually the first, or the last, but those middle novels rarely get the praise They re caught, somehow, in a space of bridging from one part of the story to th I m going to be deliberately provocative here and begin with the assertion that this might be one of the best school stories out there At first glance, this is a strange assertion to make The O Sullivan Twins is the second novel in a series, and it s not often that the second in the series is the one that stands out above the rest It s usually the first, or the last, but those middle novels rarely get the praise They re caught, somehow, in a space of bridging from one part of the story to the next, and rarely get positioned as stories within their own rights as opposed to textual conjunctions And, yet, once we move past that question of position, of context, then we have to consider the book itself and even that proves somewhat complicated There are new girls one that s a family relation of the O Sullivan twins and almost too near to the girls we ve just met to be considered as a girl we re yet to know a Girl With A Past, a girl who is lovely, and there is an elaborate midnight feast involving the best possible moment involving sausages I have perhaps to read in this genre A ridiculous, wonderful amalgam, and it s wonderful because Blyton makes it work She writes this novel with a fixed determination upon enjoyment and pace and readability A complex author, yes, but one who could write story when she wanted to and this is amongst her best It s well told, brilliant stuff, and it hits moments which are both deeply thrilling and rampantly moving, often in the same paragraph Blyton could write, she could write well, and this is a book that makes you long to go to St Clare s It s a book which presents femininity, girlhood, as a thing with a thousand different faces and there s something rather exhilarating about reading it and recognising the permissive state of such a construct Girls can be good, bad, complicated, nasty These girls can and will be anything they want to be and Blyton will move heaven and earth to allow that happen

    I m going to be deliberately provocative here and begin with the assertion that this might be one of the best school stories out there At first glance, this is a strange assertion to make The O Sullivan Twins is the second novel in a series, and it s not often that the second in the series is the one that stands out above the rest It s usually the first, or the last, but those middle novels rarely get the praise They re caught, somehow, in a space of bridging from one part of the story to th I m going to be deliberately provocative here and begin with the assertion that this might be one of the best school stories out there At first glance, this is a strange assertion to make The O Sullivan Twins is the second novel in a series, and it s not often that the second in the series is the one that stands out above the rest It s usually the first, or the last, but those middle novels rarely get the praise They re caught, somehow, in a space of bridging from one part of the story to the next, and rarely get positioned as stories within their own rights as opposed to textual conjunctions And, yet, once we move past that question of position, of context, then we have to consider the book itself and even that proves somewhat complicated There are new girls one that s a family relation of the O Sullivan twins and almost too near to the girls we ve just met to be considered as a girl we re yet to know a Girl With A Past, a girl who is lovely, and there is an elaborate midnight feast involving the best possible moment involving sausages I have perhaps to read in this genre A ridiculous, wonderful amalgam, and it s wonderful because Blyton makes it work She writes this novel with a fixed determination upon enjoyment and pace and readability A complex author, yes, but one who could write story when she wanted to and this is amongst her best It s well told, brilliant stuff, and it hits moments which are both deeply thrilling and rampantly moving, often in the same paragraph Blyton could write, she could write well, and this is a book that makes you long to go to St Clare s It s a book which presents femininity, girlhood, as a thing with a thousand different faces and there s something rather exhilarating about reading it and recognising the permissive state of such a construct Girls can be good, bad, complicated, nasty These girls can and will be anything they want to be and Blyton will move heaven and earth to allow that happen
