This new series makes the Girl Detective books seem like Pulitzer Prize winners. Usually, I am forgiving with the portrayal of modern Nancy Drew and friends, but the characters in this new book are utterly awful. Nancy is dumb, as much as I hate to use the word, and also far too forgetful for som...

I decided recently to read (and re-read) the Nancy Drew series. These books are a lot of fun, as well as being historically and culturally interesting.

I have to point out that I read every Nancy Drew I could get my hands on back in the late 70s. I was about 10 years old. They were consistently interesting, with cool facts about geography, science, and history. They were not too scary or gory; they always ended well. Nancy had a steady boyfr...
