This is all I used to read during my teenage years . I was obsessed !

I didn't read Nancy Drew when I was younger. I can't remember whether I tried them at the time, although I think maybe I did after I read all of the Hardy Boys books I could find. Now I can see why I didn't. The writing of the HB mysteries is so much stronger (I just went back and checked). I found Keene's writing too elementary, too repetitive, and not horribly realistic. I only read the first story in this volume and I skimmed much of it, so maybe some of the others are better.

Nancy Drew, what a classic. In the middle of fantasies and pararoms, a good old classic mystery books is really refreshing. I almost forgot how clever, witty, and brave Nancy was.And how cool her mysteries were! Of course, they're not as mysterious as Trio Detektif - or adventurous as Blyton's books, but I still love the classic touch. I do hope I can find the second volume of this collection. And probably, start to collect all of the books, too!
