THE best Hardy Boys story

This concerns the original text edition of House On The Cliff. The revised edition is most familiar, but this one is richer in subplots and character development. This book was originally released back in the late 1920's, and is, arguably, the best Hardy Boys book in the entire series. Admittedly this is my personal opinion, but I have read each and every Hardy Boys title (both original and revised text)in the first 58. This story was revised during the first wave revisions of the Hardy Boys back in the late 1950s. If you've never read the original text version of this story, you're in for a treat.

An Excellent Book!

This review concerns the revised 1959 edition. Mr. Hardy disappears while investigating a group of smugglers. Frank and Joe suspect that a strange, old house on a cliff has a connection to the mystery and get some of their friends to help them investigate the place. This book is one of the best of the series; it is loaded with action, suspence and mystery. It doesn't take you long to get into the book and the last half of the book was especially good. Although, as good as this book is, the original edition, which is nearly the same, is even better and is the version that I would recommend reading because the writing is more rich and descriptive. While the original may be longer, with a book this good you don't mind that. Whichever version you decide to read, the original or the revised, you will not be disappointed with this book.

Great for gettings kids to like reading.

I read so many of these a few years back, and I am now stocking up my home library with these great imaginary scenes. My children are too young to read, but my nephew likes them just fine. Great for boys AND girls. Start kids off with some fun and clean reading, and they will love reading later on.

An outstanding series for all ages

I started reading these in 6th grade because my dad had like all of them because he was a big fan. Now I am reading them and I have him rereading all of them. Like every night he comes into my room to see If I have bought any new ones recently. All summer I have been reding them looking for cheap prices on the series. I have actually read like 5 this summer beacause EVERY chapter has a cliff hanger. Today I finished the secret agent on flight 101 and the ceativity yet down to earth way Mr.Dixon wrote these books is amazing. I recamend these to all ages even reading them to some kids...they will love the suspence.

this book is very exciting

this wonderful book was my favorate. have read almost all of the hardy boys and enjoyed this one particulary because it was about a group of gangsters smuggling drugs from a boat there is also this house on the cliff in wich the gangstars are hiding.the hardy boys and there chums are trying to figure out whats happining.they end up saving a gangster ang when there father fenton hardy does not come home they get suspicious. so the hardys end up getting caught but make it out of there with a action scene. im twelve years old and im apart of the world wide ring of hardy boy book collecters we meet in virginia every month.
