Way Off!!!

I have read the origional 50 or so Nancy Drew books. I was looking for a new book to read and decided that I would try the first book of the new Nancy Drew series. It still had the same characters as the old books but was way off on the old details. If you are just star...

It still had the same characters as the old books but was way off on the old details. If you are just starting on Nancy Drew books and you are not planning on reading the old ones then I strongly receommend this book but, if you have read the old ones and are looking for a replacement then DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! You will be very dissapointed by the lack of accuracy of the old details.

Hope this helps.

    Bring back the ORIGINAL NANCY DREW!

    I bought this book with great hopes that the All New Girl Detective would be something special. I was greatly disappointed. As an avid reader of Nancy Drew for over 35 years and a collector, this new series does not due the series justice and has made a mockery of our Nancy Drew. No longer the brave and resourceful teen sleuth, she has been reduced to a mere wanna-be detective who no longer has wit and cool. Her friends Bess and George has been so rewritten as to make an old series reader wonder ¿who are these people?¿ And I know many fans who have been so disappointed by this new series they have turned away and looked to the old favorite classic Nancy Drew books for a reread. If the publishers wanted to jazz up and modernize Nancy for the 21st century, they did a very poor job. The Nancy Drew Files Series and The Nancy Drew on Campus Series each tried to change the original tried and true formula with little success (although I personally like the Files Series). It is a shame that this is what the wonderful Nancy Drew series has become. Don't worry true fans; I predict this new format won't be around for long as its popularity and poor sales will prove once and for all - don't mess with success. Bring back our Nancy!

    Boring!!!

    The originals are way better. These have no suspense or even slightly creepy parts. I definetly do not recommend these books to children who enjoy mysterious and suspenseful books.

    Bring back the old Nancy!

    I have read Nancy Drew for 50 years and still enjoy them. I have all the titles published, but I am not fond of this new Nancy. I have been used to the fast paced, rough and tumble adventures. (I admit she should have a serious head problem with all the times she was hit over the head). I have read the first 5 in this new series and it seems you are almost to page 100 before you are sure there is really a true mystery, most is speculation. I agree with another reviewer the the mysteries seem silly compared to the old series. In the older books, you knew what the mystery (or at least one of them) was right of the bat. I hope they get better as I would hate to stop collecting them for my Grandaughters.
