My first Nancy Drew book and I must say that I'm not all that impressed since the story seemed simplified and just plain silly to me.

I wonder if I had liked the book more if I had started with the Nancy Drew series a bit earlier - both age-wise, for instance, had I been 10 years old, I would've probably liked it better, and also had I started with the 14th book in the series instead of the 104th, the characters would've maybe made more sense to me and maybe I could've gotten the humour behind it

I read a few of these, but they don't compare to the Nancy Drew Files or the Nancy Drew classics.

This is one of the best Nancy Drew paperbacks. Maybe I liked it so much because the story was very personal to me. First of all, it takes place in the Marin area.

Good story overall. Good for light reading and a short mystery.

This ND mystery was different in that it stemmed from an actual modern historic event--the Vietnam War. Contained the usual running Nancy off the road but no head injuries, just smoke inhalation for which Nancy was actually treated at a hospital, and no bickering between Bess and George. A good story.

I remember it being one of my favorites as a kid. While I certainly still enjoyed it (you can't go wrong with Nancy Drew) it didn't hold quite the charm as it used to. Still a solid mystery for Nancy and the gang, but more simplistic or predictable than I remember. Still a fun read for youngsters.

I didn't like this mystery very much. The only part that I liked was Joanne and Keith's wedding preparations.
