The Nancy Drew series is not "The Hunger Games," and many young girls today will find it pretty mundane and unexciting. The authors who were Carolyn Keene in their day do not give us great literature here.
That said, I recommend the Nancy Drew books narrated by Laura Linney. She brings an uncritical freshness and enthusiasm to the old chestnuts! It would be great for a mother or grandmother who was a fan to share this listen with a daughter or granddaughter.
They also make for great before-bed listening, and I mean that in the best way. Forget your cynicism and the problems of the modern world and curl up with Nancy and Laura.

These audio books have been a lifesaver while recovering from a concussion, because I can't read. Laura Linney is the best of the ND narrators... Wish she would do the whole series.

The narrator in this story, was extremely good. The best part was, when every situation, that causes a moment of intrigue or suspense, adds another complex to the next episode and onward. Nancy Drew is the best!
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
Think its for younger children my daughter is 13 yrs
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
she didn't finish it
What does Laura Linney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Any additional comments?
