This is the last of the Borrower books and wasn't published till 20 years later. You can kind of tell in the writing that Mary Norton took long break because the writing was a little longer and different from the other books. I still liked this though even though she added a new character that was kind of like Arrietty's love interest.

I still think the Borrowers is a great series for people to check out. One of the few kids books that has the main kid stay with her parents. It's most about survival, being nomadic, and being different from others. Still think it's interesting that I think there is a connection with the four elements and these books (fire, water, earth, and air, and also life). ( )

Mary Norton was one of my all time favorite authors as a child and I am pleased to say that her books stand the test of time as I still enjoy them as an adult. I find her premise to be super creative and well thought out and I really like her characters. I think the books are wonderful and I also think you should never watch the movie as it's awful and shouldn't even share a name with the novels. ( )

So...after the "What...???" reaction I had as I finished The Borrowers Avenged, I found out the rather open-ended conclusion of the previous book is a rewrite, intended to make room for this next book that didn't come until decades later.

Well. It's another open-ended, dissatisfying conclusion here. It seems there was supposed to be at least one more book after this one, but it never came.

And although this fifth novel is the last and longest of the series, it has no real need to be so long, since it's a pretty redundant story for the borrowers. Different locations. Villains with different names. But nothing truly new driving the plot, and no growth for the main characters who had such an interesting, promising start in the first, wonderful novel.

I'm rather disappointed that the overall progression of the series doesn't do justice to the way it began. Still, I understand this kind of thing just happens sometimes.

Not everything always pans out as planned in publishing, and authors are human.

So. Unless you're dying to see the various ways this last novel goes wrong, I'd recommend either getting your hands on an original copy of Book Four, The Borrowers Aloft, or finding its original conclusion online somewhere. Then let that original ending be The End. ( )

This is the fifth and final book in the series. Firstly, after the disappointment of the previous book, I started this one with low expectations. However, it turned out to be much better than I thought it would be and I enjoyed it.

The story picks up where the previous one left off (as do all the books) and we follow the family to their new life at the rectory. Arrietty’s aunt and uncle have moved into the church next door and we meet a new character, Pea Green, who is already living in the rectory (and seems quite lonely so it was good to see the family move in and provide companionship for him).

There is mention of Arrietty planning her future with Spiller, who isn’t in this book very much. There’s also a strong bond developing with Pea Green. And we get a strong notion that the family will settle in their new home and be happy.

The book ends ... in a way that felt to me that the author planned on writing a sixth book, but never had the chance before her death. I suppose the ending allows the reader to fill in the blanks. This means what I think will happen is purely up to my imagination. And that is the case for any reader. And there’s always the truth—there is no real end to a story.

The series is good. The concept is brilliant and easily accepted. The author did a good job yet there were many flaws, unresolved plots, out of whack timelines and little things that really should have been fixed because of consistency issues. However, if the reader can get passed all this and just accept the story, the characters and the plots for what they are then they are in for a treat.

Recommended. ( )

The final Borrowers book (written much later than the rest of the series) and one that was new to me. It continues the tale of the tiny family - Arrietty, her parents Pod and Homily - and their search for a safe home. Here the evil Platters (who the family had escaped from in "The Borrowers Aloft") get their comeuppance but quite a lot is still left hanging. Still it's an enjoyable finale to the series. (And now I need to find which family member has Afloat and Aloft as I need to read these to complete the cycle!) ( )
