Die 30er Folgen sind schon oft sehr abenteurreich und dafür bleibt das Detektivische leider ein bisschen auf der Strecke. Wenigstens sind die Drei dank der Spurensicherung doch noch auf dem richtigen Weg. (2.5 Sterne)

I enjoyed this volume, although it was really a bit darker than usual for the Three Investigators. It begins with a death, and then the story contiues with experiments on animals and genetic engineering. The caveman plot had a few cool twists to it, but the story did venture into the realm of science fiction before it was all said and done. A little far out, but a good read.

Another solid three investigators mystery. This time the boys don't have an official client, but investigate to satisfy curiosity. For some reason, the three investigators books by Carey often have unstable females in them. In other books there was a bossy, demanding, illogical girl. In this book we have a young woman who seems to burst into tears at every possible moment. I've been told that Carey is a female writer, so perhaps the intention is to introduce female characters into a the series. ...more

Solid, but way too many characters to keep track of and too many subplots so that the end effect is muddled. Still, it is well-written and readable.

Kembali bernostalgia di masa-masa SMP. Saya ingat sekali potongan cerita mengenai "Misteri Manusia Gua" ini pernah nongol di buku paket Bahasa Indonesia SMP saya untuk bagian cerita terjemahan. Jadi, jauh sebelum Julia Perez eksis, saya sudah mengenal nama "Jupe" dari singkatan Jupiter Jones, ketua sekaligus anggota Trio Detektif tercerdas, di antara Pete dan Bob. Jupe digambarkan sebagai anak yang jenius, Pete merupakan anak jangkung yang atletis, sementara Bob adalah anak yang cermat dan telit ...more

I read this one when I was grown up and it wasn't very good. It's a different author from some of the others, though, so I'm not sure whether it's age or author that led me to enjoy it less than the ones I read when I was young.

Love the Three Investigators, but I have to say, this one is not my favorite. In fact, all of the books in the series written by this particular author always seem to miss the mark. This story may be my least favorite of any of the previous 34 books in the series.
