I got bored and put it down in the beginning, but once the book actually starts talking all about the development of Nancy Drew, I couldn't put it down! I loved the parallel development of Nancy Drew with the changing culture.

The discussions at the end are interesting regarding modern attempts to develop Nancy. For me, Nancy lives forever in the hardback yellow bound books. No need to mess with perfection.
