I read quite a few Nancy Drew books when I was a girl and thought I'd enjoy the nostalgia of reading one again. I checked a title out from the library that I'd never read and was more than a little disappointed in this one.

The story jumped straight from one incredibly lucky clue to another without making the setting clear to the reader. While I know that the Nancy Drew series is light on description and character building, this book had none.

After reading some of the other reviews, I see I'm not

Nancy, Bess and George end up in Greece. Seems some money that was aimed to help a needy family has been lost or sidetracked somehow and they're there to find out what has happened.
Right off the girls run into trouble when a poisonous snake in a basket of apples is put in their room. Then someone dumps a gold mask in Nancy's bag and the police end up suspecting her of being a thief.

As it seems with most of the Nancy Drew books, her car is nearly run off the road. Things get complicated and nast

My original school reading review

This book was so good I wanted to carry on reading which was what I did I finished the and Started another book of the same sees which I had got for my holiday. (I read this book on holiday in Sunny Spain by the pool).

I never thought that it would be possible for me to dislike a Nancy Drew book, but sixtieth time was the charm. There was no mystery, Nancy simple ran around and had clues and suspects fall in her lap, and the police were portrayed as rude and brutish.

Is Beth's issue of weight finally behind us? Although, it's still an period of time when the term "Super Sleuths" can elicit guffaws from a group of teen-agers. Ah, longing for the simple times. Thank you 1980-somethings.

Pretty typical Nancy Drew story. It's set in Greece with some info about the culture and language.

Never read before. One of the most boring and dull ever.

For once no one made a comment about Bess being overwheight. And she did some smart thinking as well. How refreshing!
But why do they have to drag the boyfriends along in every single book now? They want to show us that they have a normal life with boys, and I get that. But do they have to do it so often? The books lose some of its girlpower.

Out of all the Nancy Drew books I've read, this was the worst. It was kind of boring.
The second time around reading this book was better, but I don't know. Things that were mentioned maybe once in the book were important at the end, or at least that I noticed. They'll talk about something once and then expect you to remember it the whole time. The longer Nancy Drew goes on the worse the books get.

This is a good book if you like Greece or mystery I liked it, but I wouldn't read it again because I just really isn't really into them. This book is about This book is about Nancy traveling to Greek to solve a mystery for Mrs.Tomponson she was sending money to Greece and all of sudden the money stopped coming to the family while doing this she uncovers a bigger mystery.

The story is very vague and some events are a bit wtf (getting on the ship then off again ? Pointless?) another different reader who seems to regard this as a chance to practise her Greek accent.

An inheritance, a snake, a symbol, a mask, smugglers, and all set in Greece, just another Nancy Drew mystery.
