Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!
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.
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.
