This is one of the later Hardy Boys stories that I had never read. I believe the last book I read as a kid was #43 "The Aztec Warrior" published in 1964 when I was 14. The subsequent books I purchased as an adult up to #58 but I hadn't read most of them.

Well, I thought the story was just okay. The pace was very frenetic with the boys traveling to Zurich and then to Mexico on some false leads while they were trying to solve the mystery of who stole some gold bars from the Wakefield mint (could t

I read nearly all The Hardy Boys books when I was a kid, and recently I stumbled upon this title in a second hand bookstore. It was one of the few books from the series that had eluded me back in the day, so I bought it and read it. What you might call a nostalgic return to my youth.
The Jungle Pyramid is OK and I dare say that if I'd read it as a child, alongside all the other Hardy Boys titles, I'd have probably liked it more. As an adult, I find the plot coincidences and the lame dialogue much

Great little heart-pounder and page-turner... as always.

Frank and Joe assist their Dad in tracking down a gang of smugglers who have mysteriously accessed a million in gold from a very secure safe. The top guy can come as a surprise :)

Didn't care for the fortune-teller part or the idols. Or the hypnosis. Other than those 3 little things, the book was great!

This is a mystery book about a stealing of a lot of gold so the Hardy Boy have to find the robber. The two boys travel all around to find him they went to Europe and Mexico City In mexico they find a huge pyramid and find someone there they follow him around it and then he was gone... Read the rest to find out. I recommend tis book to people who like mystery books because there is great excitement but I don't like mystery books to much so go read The Jungle Pyramid.

I think that the jungle pyramid is a great book. 1 because its inspiring too young readers like my self. I was really inspired by this book because I have always been wanting to be an investigator. So if anyone wants to be the same thing as me I suggest that you read this whole serious but pay the most attention to the 56 one because that may be the best one at least that's what I think
Jaime Contreras
Mystery, intrigue, a double-cross and international travel are all included in this superior. I am a big Meso-American culture-phile so I appreciated the settings in the Yucatan. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.

This book had the hardy's chasing gold thieves on a wild goose chase to Switzerland to Mexico to a lost Inca pyramid. The hardy's with the help of their dad solve the case right back at the begining.

I thought the book was good it had a lot of action and mystery at the start of the book i thought it was the best part because it started in a weird setting.
