What the Critics Say

"Irwin is earnest, honest, and anxious to please, yet never overplays the adventures. He engages listeners as the suspense unfolds and stays totally committed to the story. Listeners do, too. For adult listeners, here's a campy mystery to delight in. For youngsters, Irwin is likely to convert a new generation to the Hardy Boys." (AudioFile)

    "Terrific narration, well-paced"

    My kids loved this, of all the many books we;ve listend to-- Irwin has a real talent for knowing when to pause, when to sound scared, and not to overplay it for the kids-- just right. I wish Audible carried all the Hardy Boys title as we'd snap them up. For now, rest assured that the Tower Treasure won't disappoint!

    "1927"

    Yes, 1927 was the original copyright date for this book. It really brings back an age of literature when heroes were without any nasty flaws. These boys obey their parents and don't grumble when Mom asks them to run an errand. I don't know if that hearkens to an earlier age of teenagers, or just an earlier age of literature.

    It pulled in my 6-yo daughters attention immediately as she merely wandered through the room.

    This Narrator is excellent, and I like the old style "radio drama" music they've added from the golden age of radio.

    I wish audible had the whole series, I'd get them all.

    "Yesterday brought into the present!"

    It really is nice to think that books from our youth can be brought to life today through the technology of "audio/oral" presentations.

    I remember reading this book about 40 years ago and today, to hear the story presented orally, was a real treat.

    "Great introduction for a new generation of fans"

    I bought this for my son (6 going on 7) and he enjoyed it thoroughly. As an adult reader listening to the books after having read them for the first time a number of years ago, it was a trip down memory lane! The boys were older than I remembered and I seemed to remember more independence from them as well. We both enjoyed the story and thought Bill Irwin did a very good job. It was the first Hardy Boys we have listened to but it won't be the last.

    Story
    "Great 1st book for 2 boys 9 and 8"
    Would you listen to The Tower Treasure again? Why?

    This was my first time and my sons listening to a audio book. It was a great story that had our attentions from beginning to end. The use of words used back then when the book was written is different from now. This was a good teaching lesson on how we have many words to describe things. My boys could envision themselves as the Hardy brothers. This gave them a special connection to the story


    What did you like best about this story?

    We love how the book talked about the Hardy family enjoying meals together and the community working together to help out the accused who they felt was innocent.


    Which character – as performed by Bill Irwin – was your favorite?

    I don't feel Bill gave any particular character a "voice". Bill read in a natural voice in my opinion.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was interesting to hear the word "spade" for shovel and "sleuthing" for detective work.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great audio book and I'd recommend this for boys.

    "Loved it!"

    Listened to this with my eight-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter. They both love the book. I thought the presentation was great. The narrator really knew how to change voices well and the added music here and there was enjoyable. Of course, the mystery of the Hardy boys is always a great story.

    "Kids liked it but very dated"

    The story is very dated and had the adults during the long car trip on holiday desperate for the finish but the kids did seem to enjoy the story
