Publisher's Summary

The Hardy Boys are elated over their good luck when wealthy Elroy Jefferson invites them to spend Christmas vacation at his private retreat on Cabin Island. But when Frank and Joe make a reconnaissance trip in their iceboat, The Sea Gull to the island, a belligerent stranger orders them off. Why? Before 24 hours have passed, the Hardys find themselves involved in two mysteries: the first concerns the recent disappearance of Mr. Jefferson's grandson, Johnny; the second, the baffling theft of a priceless collection of antique medals which took place two years ago.
The young detectives, with their pals Chet Morton and Biff Hooper, pursue both cases on the icebound, snow covered island. Sabotage to The Sea Gull, danger to themselves and a ghostly prowler do not daunt Frank and Joe in their search for Johnny Jefferson and for clues to the stolen antique medals. How the teenage investigators outwit a ruthless foe and succeed in solving both mysteries makes for mounting suspense in this brisk-paced adventure.

Big Mistake

What disappointed you about The Mystery of Cabin Island?

Narration.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Mannal?

Bill Irwin, whom I never appreciated until now.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.


Any additional comments?

I made the mistake of downloading the three latest audio releases of this series (at full price) all at once without first sampling the new voice. For me, the cartoon-like narration makes them almost un-listenable. The teen characters are voiced as prepubescents sounding much like Elroy Jetson or Bart Simpson. I am very disappointed.

And I'm not crazy about Audible's paint-by-numbers review form. The five star grading system is fine for those who do not wish to write a review but the questionnaire form for a written review is -- like this book -- juvenile.
