Critic Reviews

"For the seasoned Hardy fan or the new listener, narrator Bill Irwin brings the thrill of being alongside Frank and Joe as the plot thickens. Irwin is breathless, questioning, eager, discouraged, and optimistic, just as the boys are, and he voices supporting roles with a hint of each character. Be ready to jump, as the sound effects are most realistic!" (AudioFile)

Exciting and fun as always with the Hardy Boys!

We loved the story! Listened with my boys, 10 and 6, on our way to Colorado. They were engaged the whole time. Narrator was decent.

As intriguing as I'd remembered

I was a Hardy Boys fan when I was a lad. At 12 years old with a several hours trio before us, I decided it was time to introduce my son too. It kept him intrigued from the first chapter!

Fun story; pretty good performance

Old, unabridged text is great! Sound effects and music were appropriate and added to the story. Narration was good but could have used more inflection.

  • Overall
    5 out of 5 stars

Excellent dramatization

Not a boring reading but an excellent reading of this Hardy Boys book. With the music and sound effects, the listener is held spellbound as Bill Irwin leads you through this exciting adventure. It is a first-class production.
