It was first published on April 28, 1930, and rewritten in 1959 by Harriet Stratemeyer Adams. Nancy Drew is a 16-year-old high school graduate (her age was changed to 18 in the 1959 rewrite). Her father, Carson Drew, is a well-known criminal defense lawyer. The Drews reside in River Heights and employ a housekeeper, Hannah Gruen.

It's the same exciting mystery that readers have fallen in love with for more than 80 years-Nancy Drew has to help Mr. Crowly's friends find his missing will, before the evil Topham family steals his full inheritance

On a lark, I reread this as a 63 year-old because it was such a favorite when I was about 8 or 9. I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed this re-read. Of course this is not "good" literature and like all the Nancy Drew books I read as a child is formulaic. Unfortunately, I don't think my daughter would want her daughter reading these books, simply because they are not "good" literature. However, I couldn't believe how exciting it was today as it was back then. I couldn't put it down. I liked the simplicity and yet the plot at the same time. It sparkled for me and not just from bringing back memories of childhood. Of course, it's a quick read. I don't think there is anything wrong with getting a reluctant reader to get hooked on these. Nancy Drew hooked me on reading more than any other books and I can imagine younger girls today might want to devour them as I did back in the early 60's.
I bought this for my 7 year old second grader, who loves Nancy Drew mysteries. The vocabulary is excellent, & it is a quick read. There is no objectionable language and it is chaste enough for young children. Additionally, Nancy Drew doesn't behave disrespectfully to her parents, use incorrect grammar, or throw her friends under the bus like Junie B. Jones, another fictional titled character that was causing some stress between my daughter and me.

My daughter's reading level has improved immeasurably since beginning these Nancy Drew books & her love of reading has escalated as every chapter ends with a minor cliffhanger. She used to complain about her school mandated 20 daily minutes of reading, but now wants to sit down together and solve these mysteries. Thank you, Carolyn Keene!
I grew up on the original series of books that had belonged to my own mother in the 30s and 40s. I had no idea they had tweaked the books in the late 50s to make Nancy more demure and deferential to men. Glad they are bringing back the original editions/printing! My great niece <3 reads them amazingly well for a 1st grader and discusses the stories in depth! I send her one, in their order, every other month. I want her to have the entire collection as I did and as her great grandmother did. So thankful for this revival of the original printing.
My mother got me hooked on Nancy Drew when I was in my teens. We used to have the hard back books, but I have no idea what happened to them, so I decided to start over again with the 1st book on my Kindle. I read it from start to finish last night. I haven't done that since I was 17! Granted, these books are nothing like today's books, but hey, that's why I like them! ;-) Nancy Drew has an innocence about her that is a breath of fresh air. She is adventurous, friendly, and caring. All of the characteristics I look for in a best friend. She has a heart of gold and she has the best of intentions. I look forward to reading book number 2 again and reliving my youth!
I have a copy of the book from 1930 and there is not a whole lot of resemblance between the story in my book and your version. Frankly, I like my book version a lot better than the one you sold me. Relationships are changed, names are somewhat different, and the story in my book is far more exciting than yours. Your version, it seems to me, is someone writing down what they remember of the story.
My 10 year old one is falling in love with this series. We have read the Nancy drew Clue Crew books, but this is new to her. She seems to like it a lot. I glanced through it and enjoyed the "good old day" mentality and writing style. My daughter recommends this book to everyone who is wondering if they should get it or not A classic.
This book was written 80yrs ago and still can be read today. I never knew of these books when I was young and I don't recall these in my local library. I heard of these books years later, I enjoyed Nancy Drew movies with Bonita Granville and the Hardy Boys early version made for tv on the Mickey Mouse Show and later briefly the remake show Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. I read two books years ago
and thought I would like to read the books I never read. I think these books still have an appeal to them and would be enjoyable today as when they first came out. I think parents should encourage their children to read more and introduce them to Nancy Drew and also the Hardy Boys it's worth reading. For an adult it's quick read two days less if you more time to read
Quite enjoyable.
I grew up on Nancy Drew. I matured on Nancy Drew. And I'm bound and determined to spend my Golden Years re-reading Nancy Drew! One of the neatest things is the perspective. These were written before I was even a glimmer in my Mom & Dad's eyes. Heck, they were written even before Mom & Dad had even laid eyes on one another. Women's Lib (the way it's defined today) didn't exist. And yet the Heroine is a Girl! She wasn't rebelling against the Glass Ceiling Society. She was just doing what she did best. Seeing and listening, remembering and putting 2 + 2 together to make 4. Solving the Mystery in the process. I can see the Deus ex Machina. So what.

You don't have to read them in order. But I am so very grateful that they are all available. From 1 to who knows??? (I don't. I'm only on 19 now. I'll be ordering 20 - 25 once I get done here!!!)

The Kindle Version is as good as the Hardcopy. They've included the Drawings AND the Copyright Page. The Table of Contents works ... not that I ever give it a chance to do so since I read from page 1 to the end. Not at one sitting, although you could since they aren't humongous!!!

Bottom line: If you enjoy Mysteries and don't need a lot of blatant sex & violence or foul language to enjoy a book, then Nancy Drew will give you at least an hour or two of pleasure!!! There's fast action and not a lot of boring "gotta add words just to make the book bigger".
