I read these books as a young teenager adn LOVED them, I am not 70 years old, I am only 31 adn I am going to purchase these books for my children. People who do not like these books are too cought up with the now and lack imagination. You feel as though you are nancy or one of her close friends as you follow her through her mysteries and hunt for clues to solve fascinating Mysteries. Great books for stirring up the imagination, and classics until the end.

    Nancy Drew Starter Set: The Secret of the Old Clock/The Hidden Staircase/The Bungalow Mystery/The Mystery at Lilac Inn/The Secret of Shadow Ranch/The Secret of the Red Gate Farm

    The first point I think you need to be aware of id that the publication date of 1996 listed by Barnes and Noble is not entirely correct. These stories were written in the 1930s. That said, the Nancy Drew character is a classic one for young mystery fans, and I recommend any reader serious about this genre become familiar with her work. Be warned though, the settings, social interactions, etc are dated. I found myself cringeing to the thought of young girls dressing up for dinner (even out on a ranch), and flirting with the cowboys.
