    One thing you can always count on when reading a Nancy Drew mystery is an original story line I think that may be part of what made them so exciting when I was younger Besides learning about the various crimes and scams, I got to learn about things that weren t part of my world Things like sailor lingo, or the fact that there are postal inspectors, and even a bit of Shakespeare.This particular mystery was a bit weak It started out alright but sort of dissolved into a chase to track down the One thing you can always count on when reading a Nancy Drew mystery is an original story line I think that may be part of what made them so exciting when I was younger Besides learning about the various crimes and scams, I got to learn about things that weren t part of my world Things like sailor lingo, or the fact that there are postal inspectors, and even a bit of Shakespeare.This particular mystery was a bit weak It started out alright but sort of dissolved into a chase to track down the culprit and the elusive other Nancy Drew The culprit is known from the beginning, so there is no suspense there Additionally, so much of the story is contrived it really is just filler and adds nothing to the story The author tried to work in suspenseful and seemingly related happenings but wasn t quite successful in creating scenes that fit naturally within the story There were a few scenes that weren t realistic at all such as one where the girls are in the convertible and it is noted that Nancy had put the top up earlier as the day appeared cloudy and raw It is November, it starts to snow in the same scene, yet Nancy had been riding around with the top down the day before I live in Wisconsin, and no one is driving their convertible with the top down in November, ever It s much too cold, and usually windy, for that River Heights is supposedly in Illinois and it s not that much warmer there.We do learnabout Ned in this book, and we see how he is the embodiment of the all American football star There s even a chapter or two detailing his winning kick in the big game Also notable is that Ned and Nancy s relationship has certainly taken off since Nancy only started dating him in the last book We re introduced to Burt and Dave, George and Bess s respective dates, and we will see them again in future mysteries This was an original idea that wasn t quite enough for a full plot It neededelements to really flesh it out into a mysterysuspects, less filler,exciting clues Overall, as part of the series it s an okay read with a weak mystery

    Since so many of the ND books are written by committee, I m betting this one was a man there s a male perspective I haven t sensed til this one, 8 And there was a lot of Ned, dances and getting ready for dances and dates I kinda like it better when she is just doing that because it is part of Nancy being Nancy And still concerned at how absent Dad Drew is he s there but whenever they are together for a minute, he gets called away.Anyway Off to 9, twisted candles are inv Since so many of the ND books are written by committee, I m betting this one was a man there s a male perspective I haven t sensed til this one, 8 And there was a lot of Ned, dances and getting ready for dances and dates I kinda like it better when she is just doing that because it is part of Nancy being Nancy And still concerned at how absent Dad Drew is he s there but whenever they are together for a minute, he gets called away.Anyway Off to 9, twisted candles are involved, and it s October, so Halloween will be in the wings, maybe

    After having a few Nancy Drew novels as a youngster, it is fun to read all of them in order I discovered a great essay about the Stratemeyer family and know writers were employed to expand story ideas The original author, Mildred A Wirt, hadleeway when Edward was alive than when his brave daughter, Harriet took over In the 1950s, Harriet received enough complaints about impropriety to undertake rewriting the suite sometimes in imbalanced chunks My yellow hardcovers are the rewrites After having a few Nancy Drew novels as a youngster, it is fun to read all of them in order I discovered a great essay about the Stratemeyer family and know writers were employed to expand story ideas The original author, Mildred A Wirt, hadleeway when Edward was alive than when his brave daughter, Harriet took over In the 1950s, Harriet received enough complaints about impropriety to undertake rewriting the suite sometimes in imbalanced chunks My yellow hardcovers are the rewrites, whereas my Mom s generation would know Nancy s spunkier portrayals Melanie Rehak s essay is worth reading to understand the marvel Mildred was A remuneration conflict resulted in a Walter Karig penning this novel I hope the subsequent two he did are better than this No wonder Nancy s Mysterious Letter is one of the weakest However one fault is a spoiler synopsis at the Goodreads website It told how the novel would go My careful summary is that this mystery derives from a stolen mailbag The approach was silly right away.No one would take a mailbag from a house, instead of in public Worse, Nancy knew there was an international letter for her but dillydallied to read it Her Dad places European phone calls to learn the contents of the letter, from the sender that they were able to ascertain The mystery would have been just fine, had Nancy read the letter and pursued its puzzle directly Superfluous drama was a turnoff This only needed to be a mission to locate someone However I admired that Nancy, Bess, George, and Carson did do a lot of real legwork I look forward to quests and outcomes that are faratmospheric than this one was Old houses and treasure chests makeexciting subjects than a greedy bloke

    This could have been a fun read, even exciting except that the person doing the outline of the book didn t give one that was adventurous enough, and hey, there were no haunted bridges, no haunted houses, and no scary places in fact, there was no action.It started out being a good book with the mailman stopping by Nancy Drew s house, and after telling her that he was retiring, she invited him in for hot chocolate When he got up to leave, he found that the mailbag that he had left on the front p This could have been a fun read, even exciting except that the person doing the outline of the book didn t give one that was adventurous enough, and hey, there were no haunted bridges, no haunted houses, and no scary places in fact, there was no action.It started out being a good book with the mailman stopping by Nancy Drew s house, and after telling her that he was retiring, she invited him in for hot chocolate When he got up to leave, he found that the mailbag that he had left on the front porch had been stolen, letters and all Now he is worried about losing his pension, but he does lose his job But Nancy will find it and the letters, this we know because she is a great detective In finding them, nothing happens I remember her and Ned going to a football game, and I think he was playing I know she had good money coming in from her dad to buy her either a fur coat for the year or clothing, and she chose clothing My grandmother had a fur coat, and my mother said that they kept you cool in the summer I doubt that seriously I once had a rabbit fur jacket and wore it on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley in the 70s, and a woman walked up to me, stopped and said, Your coat offends me She was a rabid person after my rabbit jacket I had to ditch her by running into a store And now fur offends me, but not because of her And that wasadventureous than the story in this book.So in this do nothing book, I stopped short of finding out if the mailman gets his job back, but we know he does or at least gets his pension, and he did have an estate given to him, so he was going to spend his twilight years raising guinea pigs or hamsters, one of those Notes 1932 editionWho wrote this book It wasn t Mildred Wirt Benson, my favorite writer of this series because she refused to write it and the next two in the series, Twisted Candles and Larkspur Lane I remember Larkspur Lane being good But who wrote the outline Walter Karig wrote the book, and Edna Squier wrote the outline for this book, after that the next two were outlined by Harriet S Adams but Walter Karig wrote them Did Edna get fired from doing such a bad job like the postman had, and did Nancy Drew help her out No, because her sister Harriet was the supervisor over this series, and she wrote most of the outlines, but her sister helped outline manyHarriet s sister had no sense of adventure I would have given her the job of janitor Its just that without a good outline where else can you go but down the ladder.Reread February 21, 2018

    I have most of the Nancy Drew books, and all the edition types too from 1930 s onward , and I have to say my original unrevised editions are the best They aredetailed, and fitto the time period Nancy is originally from It also gets annoying how the stories can get completely different for the editions for example The Secret at Shadow Ranch was changed to The Secret of Shadow Ranch, and the mysteries are completely different I know this might sound messed up of me, but one of th I have most of the Nancy Drew books, and all the edition types too from 1930 s onward , and I have to say my original unrevised editions are the best They aredetailed, and fitto the time period Nancy is originally from It also gets annoying how the stories can get completely different for the editions for example The Secret at Shadow Ranch was changed to The Secret of Shadow Ranch, and the mysteries are completely different I know this might sound messed up of me, but one of the things I liked in this mystery, is how much Nancy got scolded for being spoiled, lazy and modern which showed a lot of how sexist the times were back then Also it s good the original books mentioned the colored maid and janitor and stuff, not that I like that it was racist, but again, it shows true to the timesand their dialogue of the maid and janitor sounded exactly like how the characters of Their Eyes Were Watching God..it gave me weird de ja vu about that book lol p Also, I think in the modern edition Nancy gets chloroformed or something Nothing that exciting happened here, but it was still good anyways
