it was amazing

I am giving this review through the eyes of me as a child. I couldn't get enough of these books. My library of Nancy Drew books was massive in my bedroom when I was a pre-teen. I had every one of them that was in print at the time. I use to read through them in just a matter of hours.

I believe that Carolyn Keene handed me my love for reading, any imagination I may have, and my passion for writing as well. She was my childhood superhero, the only "celebrity" that I honored who was a woman.

I won't do a review on all of the Nancy Drew Mysteries that I have read because there are just too many of them. However, I can honestly say that I remember some of them down to very minute details and feelings.

These books were one of the greatest works of art for me as I was becoming literate and gaining expression.

What a wonderful thing for a child.

It's very strange how none of my own children ever took to them.
