Critic Reviews

"This book has a well-structured, suspenseful plot with lots of twists and turns and enough danger to keep young readers shivering. Background music, done to good effect, adds the feeling of an old-fashioned radio drama. Reader Laura Linney seems made to order....She keeps the pace lively and maintains just the right balance between narration and dramatization." (AudioFile)

Another Great Narration

Love all the Nancy Drew books, but the ones narrated by Laura Linney are by far and away the best. The other narrators sound ridiculous. I wish she would do the whole series.

Excellent

Laura Linney is the best narrator ever! She sums up Nancy's personality and characteristics with her voice.

Laura Linney is the perfect narrator

What did you love best about The Secret of Red Gate Farm?

This is one of the most enjoyable Nancy Drews we've heard. We listened to it as a family over and over.

What does Laura Linney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Laura Linney's voice establishes Nancy Drew as a smart and sophisticated young lady. Laura's voice is very pleasant.

Loved it!

First of all, this is one of my most favorite Nancy Drew books so I was very excited to see it in audio form. I was not disappointed! The narrator, Laura Linney, is just perfect. Her tone of voice, the speed of her reading, the background music...it all made for a very entertaining and thrilling listen. I was able to vividly picture in my own mind everything that was being read to me. A definite must have!

Just like a great baked potato or mac & cheese!

Is the state of the world today getting to you? Nancy Drew books make great "comfort" reads and bring back the simpler days. I have great memories of reading these books as a kid and recently returned to them on Audible. They are marvelous to listen to at bedtime. I love Laura Linney here and have not enjoyed other narrators of the Carolyn Keene books.
Nancy Drew has never meant great literature or sophisticated mystery. Just take her as she is; it's a great change of pace.
