The narrator in this story, was extremely good. The best part was, when every situation, that causes a moment of intrigue or suspense, adds another complex to the next episode and onward. Nancy Drew is the best!
Think its for younger children my daughter is 13 yrs
she didn't finish it
disappointment that my daughter didn't enjoy it
i have such found memories of Nancy drew .... maybe times have changed
"Laura Linney Deserves an Award"
The Nancy Drew series is not "The Hunger Games," and many young girls today will find it pretty mundane and unexciting. The authors who were Carolyn Keene in their day do not give us great literature here.
That said, I recommend the Nancy Drew books narrated by Laura Linney. She brings an uncritical freshness and enthusiasm to the old chestnuts! It would be great for a mother or grandmother who was a fan to share this listen with a daughter or granddaughter.
They also make for great before-bed listening, and I mean that in the best way. Forget your cynicism and the problems of the modern world and curl up with Nancy and Laura.
"more Laura Linney readings please!"
Sharp witted, and refreshingly clever Nancy Drew comes to life read by Laura Linney. Please please read more of these, you just can't compare others readers to this quality.
"Still my favorite..."
These audio books have been a lifesaver while recovering from a concussion, because I can't read. Laura Linney is the best of the ND narrators... Wish she would do the whole series.
"Best one yet says my 9 y/o son"
Nancy Drew is always refreshing and gives a chance to share with my young children what it was like before cell phones! We love the voice of the narrator and the expression she uses with the different characters. We enjoy the certain happy endings and excitement of the story lines.
I have no complaints about the narrator, Laura Linney. She is a great reader and engages the audience very well. And the background music adds to the mystery and excitement. I only gave this 4 stars though because the storyline wasn't my favorite. It was catchy in the beginning, but as the case progressed, it became a little dull. Still, a good, entertaining way to spend 2+ hours of your time. I recommend it.
