Finished reading May 16, 2012. The book did bring bring back some fond memories and to be really honest, I enjoyed reading it. I’ll give it 4 stars.
My pre- and early teen years were not necessarily filled with reading. Didn’t enjoy it very much. Actually, reading didn’t become a big part of my life until after I left home and I’ve been reading steadily ever since. Having said that, I did, however, have a collection of Hardy Boys books. Still do. Having found some boxes of Hardy Boys books in the basement the other day I simply grabbed one randomly to read (The Clue of the Screeching Owl, published in 1962). So maybe it was my wanting to get back to simpler times, or read something short and familiar. I’m not sure. Reading this book is bringing back some very fond memories from my childhood. Well worth the read you could say, and something you could recommend to your children or, perhaps, even read for yourself.
