"Joe Flew Into The Air"

The sixth installment of the Hardy Boys is a fantastic mystery. I figured that by the time I got this far into the series the characters would be dull, the plot line monotonous, and one book would read like the other. This is not the case! This was a fast-paced book, new characters interspersed with the usual cast; though only Frank, Joe, and Chet are the central characters in this tale. Cars are being stolen in Bayport and adjacent cities and the crooks use the Shore Road to make their getaway. The Hardy's friend Jack Dodd and his dad are framed for the robberies, and subsequently jump bail (or do they). With their dad, Fenton, away in New York the Hardy Boys work on the case themselves from the land, sea, and air. Mysterious farmers, secret caves, and the Dodds heritage all play a part in this fun mystery. Why didn't I read these when I was a kid?

I love the Hardy Boys!

This book was Super! I liked pretending I was one of the Hardy Boys. I also tried working out the mysteries with the book. I liked it when they found the Hidden Hideout. I also liked when they spied. I like spying on people myself. I also liked their motorcycles. I loved it!

A Great Mystery

This review concerns the 1928 edition. A string of auto thefts along the Shore Road has baffled the Bayport police force. When a school friend of the Hardy's and his father are accused, Frank and Joe decide to track down the thieves. A well-written book, like all of the low-numbered original editions; this book has an interesting plot, plenty of excitement and a little bit of humor. As well, unlike in the three previous volumes of the series, the criminals did not simply give up upon being cornered which kept the ending from being anticlimatic. All in all, a great book.

Especially Creative

I finished this book in 5 hours and I usually take two days. It was amazing how they were always on the go and that you have to go along with them for the ride. It starts out that there have been car thefts on Shore Road and the Hardy Boys decide to solve the case. Then their friend Jack Dodd has a Pilgrim Mystery for them to solve. Then the Dodds are accused of stealing the cars. They get out from bail. Then they disappear. The Hardy Boys suspect they've been kidnapped. Then with the help of their friend Chet they set out to solve the Mystery! Very Good suspeneseful book that has you screaming for more!

Fun for 'oldtimers' too!

Thank you, thank you Applewood books, for bringing back the ORIGINAL- The Shore Road Mystery-Anyone who says The Hardy Boys are for boys only, or for just the 9-12 year old group, don't know what they are missing. This is a good, clean, fun, mystery story, to be read on those dark and stormy nights..As a youngster I had to sneak them from my big brother when he wasn't looking- I think he knew it..For he gave me the whole set for my 11th birthday...Wish now I had kept them! I'm now in my 50s and I STILL enjoy them..'course now, I'm sharing with grandchildren..Well, it is a good excuse for reading them again (grin)
