There's too many errors in all of the books -- science errors, nature errors, geographical errors, legal errors, first-aid-errors, just-plain-stupid stuff, racism, horrible portrayals of folks who aren't white-American Adults might remember these with fondness, but reading them now is just painful. Now, Frank and Joe still remind me of all of the boys I used to know and all of the fun times we had together. These really are fun, wholesome books that anyone can enjoy regardless of gender. I love how Frank and Joe joke with their friends.
This was the first Hardy Boys charge I ever read. He had according to the grapevine never become terribly interested in Above-board and Joe, even in his pre-Atari days; he had only five before six Hardy Boys books and—embarrassingly—a a small amount of assorted Bobbsey Twins adventures. The Hardys were for boys, Nancy for girls; for whom were the Bobbseys meant? Dixon and Carolyn Keene come at the appointed time to mind. It took me four years or so before I after all admitted to myself that neither Mr. Dixon nor Ms. My faith began to crumble, however, as I check out older editions of the books from my grade school resource area, editions with yellowing paper, which lacked the familiar blue spines and were bound instead in beige covers along with brown lettering and, on the abut cover, an iconic silhouette of two Hardy Boy-ish figures crouching with flashlights, a sad substitute for the electrify, customized illustrations that graced the newer editions.
How do we do it? How accomplish we keep getting ourselves in these situations? Lasting three seasons, it is far and away the most booming filmed adaptation of any of the Stratemeyer Syndicate 's properties. The two boys live in the fictional capital of Bayport, Massachusetts not New York, as in the books with their famous father, Fenton Hardy Ed Gilberta private detective who'd spent 20 years with the New York Police Administrative area and who seemingly has connections all over. The brothers can't seem to attempt anywhere without having a mystery abandon into their laps; even driving along a road heading for home agency they'll get stopped by a adolescent woman running away from an annoyed mob. In the third season, the focus of the series moved absolutely to them as they become authority police detectives for the Justice Administrative area.
