    Nancy Drew is at it Again!

    Outstanding!! Although Nancy Drew and Nedla Detwheiler are complete and total strangers when they meet, soon their friendship becomes inseperable. Nelda is acused of stealing a dimond braclet, so nancy helps her try to find out who the real suspect is, while also trying to figure out who owns the mysterious bass-bround trunk identical to hers. The characters are so lively, I can imagine them standing right next to me. This book is so thrilling, you never know what will happen next! Very suspenseful!!!

    MYSTERY OF THE BRASS BOUND TRUNK

    This book was pretty good, but it is not the best Nancy Drew book I have ever read. It had some boring parts, and it seemed like there was not many details in this book. Overall, good job, Carolyn Keene!

    pretty good book

    This book was very good, but I found some parts not very interesting. Nancy is returning home from a trip to Holland and meets up with a girl who's name is Nelda D. and Nancy see's some men speaking in sign language and of course she gets suspicious and is starting the trail of a new mystery. I enjoyed this book very much and I think you should read it.

    Another mystery finds Nancy, Bess and George when they embark on

    Another mystery finds Nancy, Bess and George when they embark on an ocean voyage on the Winschoten and a brass-bound trunk is delivered to their room.

    This might be an older writing style written for younger readers but it sure is an entertaining, fast read. The most remarkable characteristic of this plot-driven, action-packed mystery adventure is readers are on a need-to-now basis. If readers do not need to know something, it is not in the book. There are many characters but we are not told their eye color or whether the lips were full or not. We are told they are in a cabin on an ocean liner but not the color of the bedspread or any other superfluous details. There is hardly any introspection, reflection, or inner monologues on what characters are thinking and feeling.

    The simple, yet plausible and realistic story stands out, coming front and center. A character goes here, does this and then that. Nearly everything is shown, not told. I know it is a middle grade book written for a younger audience. Yet, this classic is a refreshing read, a great example of no-nonsense story-telling.

    The meticulous editing and seasoned mechanics shows. With awkward phrases like “the captain and we” handled so smoothly, the grammar here is pretty perfect. It does have a cheesy quality that comes with the era, naming items “clues” and phrases like doing “some more sleuthing”. Some interesting words choices show an older dialect (“finger language” versus “sign language”) and have obviously changed over the years, but not to an unrecognizable level. Every chapter ends with a cliffhanger. I could almost hear “duh duh dum” music.

    From reading comments from other readers, I can see that while I have read the updated, rewritten version of this story, that is a good thing. In the older version portrayed Nancy as a rich snob with an unhealthy interest in her clothes. In the version I read Nancy Drew was a strong female character ahead of her time, a role model for young girls. She shows readers that not every woman has to stay at home to cook and clean, but can be out working. Nancy also showed girls there is more out there in fiction to read than romance and gory violence. There are mysteries!

    I remember why this series drew me to books in the first place. I recommend this for readers of all ages.

    Of course, I would.
