Nayuleska's thoughts
It has been many years since I read Nancy's adventures. I thought of getting them in audio book form as I know I enjoy them, and even though I've forgotten the stories I know they are an easy read not needing that much brain power which is important for me in my audio book choice. I find listening to unknown books far harder than if I read them. 

All the parts of Nancy's life which I loved the first time around are even better now. I admire her independence, I love how she has her own car which helps her investigations. I love her father and Hannah the housekeeper who care for Nancy dearly and look after her needs. I love Nancy's sweet nature, the way she knows her manners and seeks to help everyone out. It's a perfect adventure detective series which had me captivated for hours when I was little. This first adventure is full of tension and drama-it's a bit frustrating that it's going to take a long time to get all the books, but it'll be well worth the wait! I do now have book 2 ^o^
