The Tower Treasure
In the first few Hardy Boy books, the boys rode motorcycles and carried 45's. As I continued to read the series, the boys became somewhat more wholesome. And younger, in the first few books Frank was 18 and Joe was 17; suddenly they were 16 and Strangely, the age shift didn't bother me as the adventure kept me in thrall. I like this version even though the city name is wrong, it should be Bayport; and I'm not happy with the age difference between Frank and Joe. The story here is good with some genuine mystery and menace. It's as much Hardy Boys as any and better than any of the other TV series that borrowed the name. I hope for a second series, but I fear a few of the actors will age out quickly. I used to write fan letters to F.
This was the first Hardy Boys charge I ever read. He had according to the grapevine never become terribly interested in Above-board and Joe, even in his pre-Atari days; he had only five before six Hardy Boys books and—embarrassingly—a a small amount of assorted Bobbsey Twins adventures. The Hardys were for boys, Nancy for girls; for whom were the Bobbseys meant? Dixon and Carolyn Keene come at the appointed time to mind.
I thought This might not be can you repeat that? I was hoping for in the much-anticipated re-boot of the Hardy Boys series, but it shows character after that room for development. There were a few added new elements the parot, Brian, F and J not dating their long-time Gfs- leaving them available designed for other love interests like that adorable skater, Jenna and the book showed the promise of more expansion conceivably an event would tie two books together rather than the Hardys having automatically forgotten everyone they met after that every experience that they had all the rage a previous book by the age of the next book and deeper character development than its predecessors all the same the suspect profiles that revealed in a row perhaps 20 pages before it was discovered and the anti-climactic and a bite confusing climax annoyed me for weeks. I have since been constantly disappointed at the direction that the chain has taken. In the first charge, they set up a fresh, additional spin on the Hardy Boy area monopoly and by book 10 or 11 they had ruined it all.
Bounce down three paragraphs for the analysis s. At least I doubt so as to will be the case. There are two versions of this book: the original written in and a adjustment written in which modernized it after that made it a little more Computer. I have both and plan en route for do a comparison. The Hardy Boys Unofficial Home Page says some stories were completely rewritten right down en route for the plot, others merely shortened en route for fit a page length that the powers-that-be deemed proper publishing costs; bookish degradation always comes down to moneyand the rest fall somewhere between those two extremes. It also considers the prose quality of the revisions en route for be quite sub-par. I bitch a propos this discovery more extensively in the beginning of my Mystery of Berth Island review. I'm doing this assignment with The House on the Crag as well just for shits after that giggles.
Their namesake books, which were written as a result of Franklin W. Dixon and debuted infeature suspenseful titles such as What Happened at Midnight, Footprints Under the Casement, and The Haunted Fort, which are brought to life with vibrant camouflage art and dramatic frontispieces. Within the slight volumes themselves, the young detectives, who are often joined by their friends, solve mysteries in the fantastic town of Bayport. As a 7-year-old, I felt the books extended an invitation, a promise: You, too, be able to save the day. But beyond the fun exploits, the enduring appeal of the Hardy Boys series, and the reason it has sold more than 70 million copies, stem from its broad relatability. That is, the books take seriously the fact that budding up often means having boundless curio, challenging authority, and wrestling with questions of good versus evil. Rereading the Hardy Boys series has been an opportunity to untangle my nostalgia about the sleuths, who inadvertently helped me understand my identity through a fantastic world not exactly built with boys like me in mind.
