still good stories

I never read the Nancy Drew series when I was young. So, I discovered this series via HER computer games. I decided to read the books. These books were written in the 1930's. Writing styles have changed since then. There is no profanity, sex, or gore. So, I guess "modern" readers would find them drab and boring. I, however, am enjoying them very much. It also gives me a glimpse in a by-gone age where people cleaned up for dinner. Ate dinner as a family and exchanged one's thoughts and problems. The mystery aspect is pretty good. These books were written for young readers, so some of the plots may seem pretty tame or even lame by today's standards. These books are no match for Agatha Christie, of course. All in all, this 69 year old is enjoying reading how our young sleuth solves mysteries. If you're tired of the "modern" fare, sit down and enjoy one of these quick reads.
