    1. I’ve had enough of mysteries constructed as crimes. I have no interest in policemen, nor romantic segues. “Nancy Drew” was inventive but my generation’s versions were too streamlined to have heart. There were pointless mishaps to falsely raise excitement. Modern fiction wastes pages on protagonists’ careers, stalling the mystery portions. Worse, narratives incorporate other people’s perspectives, which I only consider interruptions. Are there no pure mysteries, that stick to the fasc [...]

    2. I listened to the Librivox audio book. Two friends break into a boarded up house and find it just as its occupants had left it (suddenly) 40 years earlier. They set out to solve the mystery, and once they do (several months later), something remarkable happens. The revelations make sense for 1905 (1915?). If this story occurred in modern times, the kids would get on the Internet, give up in despair ten minutes later, and the mystery would never get solved. Not much to it, really : only the 2 mai [...]

    3. It's sweet and nice and I think I heard someone say an very old style Nancy Drew mystery type book. Pretty much. The cat helps a lot and a chapter where there was some teasing over geometry was good, but for the most part it's a read-it-once book. (Feel kinda bad because I read a few reviews and a number of people really love this book!)

    4. Enjoyable Children's MysteryI found this girl's [short story 89 pgs] mystery to be a very well done and fun read. It carried me along for it's entire length with no boring spots.That is a good recommendation for any book!

    5. Written in 1915, set in 1905. Rather predictable plot and rather basic as compared to YA today but still fun.
