Nancy Drew 08: Nancy's Mysterious Letter Reviews
The Applewood Publishing Company's original version is the true, original story first published in the 1930's. Don't waste your time with the horrid (in my opinion) re-written, condensed versions that came out later. This was actually written by a man from what I have read! The original author of the series, Mildred Wirt Benson, was not asked to write this one. I read in the terrific book "Rediscovering Nancy Drew" by Carolyn Stewart Dyer that Benson and the Stratemyer Syndicate (who published the Nancy Drew series) had many conflicts over Nancy's character and how she should write the series instead of just letting her author the books. Mildred Wirt Benson later returned to write the 11th book of the series and resumed until #25, and then her last one for the series was #30. Stratemeyer also argued with man who wrote this mystery for the series in Benson's absence. I believe #8,9,10 were all written by the same male writer who also wrote screenplays for movies. This is an excellent story, and I heartily enjoy all of the original versions. They are far superior to the low-rent rewritten versions. Even as a child reading the series 20 years ago I enjoyed the orginal 30's versions of the series over the faster-paced but trashy re-written versions. I remember feeling as though my intelligence was being insulted with the yellow-bound rewrites, so I searched the shelves at the library for the old-school versions. I am enjoying buying these old original versions for my collection, and rereading them when I have a little extra time.
The story is about a teenage sleuth called Nancy Drew who is reputed in solving mysteries. It is amazing the way she takes risks and follows up clues with the help of her friends. Sometimes she lands up in very tight spots but manages to get out of them with great ease. Her friends help her along the way. This book is very well written. The story moves fast without unnecessary details. There is thrilling action and adventure, and the suspense continues throughout the story. The characters have also been well depicted. There are a lot of other books in this series that I like. All of the books are very popular. They are very interesting and entertaining and I enjoy reading them more than any other books. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery and adventure

All the house brakes out in flames! Nancy stops the car and runs over to see if anyone who may have been inside was hurt. But on her way she finds a diary.Nancy now has a few questions to answer: 1)Whos diary is this? 2)Did the person who owns the diary set the house on fire ? 3) If so, Who is he?
I couldn't resist writing a review for my very first Nancy Drew. I recieved this book on Christmas day when I was nine years old and I am in my 40s now. I still have that book and presented to my daughter when she was an adolescent. She is almost twenty-one and she fell in love with Nancy Drew just as I did. I remember Ned, Bess, and George and the adventures they had. I haven't read any of the new mysteries but if they are anything like the old ones then millions of young girls must have the sleuthing bug as I did.
This book was a very good book. I enjoyed reading it, because you never know what will happen next. My favorite part was when the family members of another Nancy Drew named Nancy Smith Drew were found,so that she could go home. I would recomend this book to anyone who is under 12 years old and loves mysteries.
This is one of my favorite Nancy Drews. The plot itself is fun and there are moments of excitement, but what makes the book special is the beginning of Nancy's relationship with Ned, who becomes her steady boyfriend and adds romance (with some resistance from her) to many of the books.
I liked this book because it has an interesting plot. I read it in about 1-2 days. If you don't have anything else to read this summer, read this book! After you've read this book you will want to read the rest of the series. I suggest that you read numbers 1-6 first. Sarah, Age 10
