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.

    "road trip"

    This was a great thriller for my children on our cross country road trip. It was clean, exciting and fast paced.

    "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.

    I love to be scared, does anyone write anything scary anymore? Maybe I have just become numb.

    Story
    "Back to my youth"
    If you could sum up The Tower Treasure in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful fun mystery


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Hardy boys takes me back to my youth and my love of reading


    What about Bill Irwin’s performance did you like?

    You always know where and who you are


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

    The whole book was a pleasure and moved me to enjoy the series once again


    Any additional comments?

    It is great that an old favorite from my childhood is being brought back in audio. Although I am 58, it is great fun to reread classics from my childhood. The Hardy Boys is a refreshing series about a time when it was cool NOT to be the criminal.

    "Very enjoyable!"

    My sons enjoyed the story a lot. The voicing could have had more emotion at several points. Voice characterizations other than the main characters we're pretty fair. I'm glad that the story seemed to be unedited from the original!

    "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
