Nancy Drew Girl Detective Reviews
I do know that all of these reviews have greatly increased overall traffic to this blog. Furthermore, they have given me a nice record of which books I like and which ones I don't. They have been beneficial to me.
As I prepare to publish my first Nancy Drew Girl Detective review, I have already written all of them. I feel some of my reviews are quite good, such as for #11 and #12, and would be of interest to people who have never read the Girl Detective books. However, I have that persistent nagging feeling that few people will bother to read the reviews, or at least, far fewer people than ones who read the reviews for #57-175.
This is because most all comments about the Girl Detective series have been bad when coming from collectors. I actually thought that my experience in reading the series was going to be very tedious and unpleasant based on what I had heard. Instead, I actually liked and enjoyed nearly all books in the series. People have said that the later books are not good. They are weaker than the earlier books, but they aren't bad at all. I enjoyed most of them.
My reviews should make you very happy if you like the Girl Detective series and feel alone. I know that I felt alone 10 years ago when I read the first Girl Detective book when it was first published and loved it, while everyone else trashed it. If you dislike the Girl Detective series, perhaps you'll still find my reviews interesting in that they represent an opposing viewpoint.
I wouldn't be surprised if some people had been anticipating these reviews thinking that they were about to enjoy seeing the Nancy Drew Girl Detective series get trashed. That's not what will happen. These reviews won't be very much different from the Nancy Drew Digest reviews.
So, I hope you'll humor me a bit longer as I review the Nancy Drew Girl Detective series. Even if you don't like the Girl Detective series or have never read it, I hope you'll come along for the journey.
