While trying to help a friend out of a difficulty, teenage detective Nancy Drew has a perilous experience in and around a deserted bungalow. (Goodreads)
This is book three in Nancy Drew mystery; another one from the library. Nancy ventures yet on another mystery solving adventure, this time to help her father on the case that he is working on and to help a friend as well. Unknown to her at the beginning the mystery that her father and her friend have are interlinked. I read this book in one sitting, it was a fast and easy read.
I enjoyed this book, but each time I read a new book in this series I have to tell myself to get over the writing and the stereotyping of the time period that these books were written in. Once I get over those two things I am good with treading the book. For the most part this book is intended for a young audience, and I wonder how many kids today read Nancy Drew books and what they think of them. Can they relate to them?
One thing that I get annoyed with this series is the mystery part (which is the pretty much whole part of the book), and how easily everything in done. All the clues fall into places, you know that the next clue is always on the next page even though Nancy is saying “I wish there is another clue.” The whole book feels very set up and outlines, there is no room for surprise. But I still enjoyed reading it, and I just need to stop thinking too much about it. My goal is to read all the Nancy Drew book and I do not want to get discouraged. I give this book 3/5 STARS. I gave four start to the first two books in the series but now that I think about it, its three stars.
